Temporary triage-away arrangements for weekend emergency services

As we make operational adjustments related to COVID-19, which will see a boost in our capacity once these changes have taken place, we will be making some temporary changes to the services we offer. As a result, for six weeks commencing from Saturday 8 August, U-Vet may experience periods when its ‘walk-in’ emergency services are at capacity on weekends. We will continue to offer 24-hour emergency services as normal from Monday to Friday. On weekends, during periods when the hospital is at capacity, we will temporarily not be able to offer emergency services to ‘walk-in’ patients unless they have a life-threatening condition. When the hospital is at capacity, animals will be assessed by one of our vets, and if there are no grave concerns for their welfare, triaged away to another emergency centre.

Full information and regular updates will be provided  through our Facebook pages @UVetWerribee and @UVetWerribeeEquine and on our dedicated COVID-19 page.
