The first Animal Emergency Centre (AEC) at Mount Waverley was founded in 1975 when a group of Melbourne Veterinary Practitioners decided that a better facility was required to serve their clients when in need of emergency treatment. Centres can now be found in Melbourne at Mount Waverley, Moorabbin, Dandenong and Frankston, in Adelaide at Norwood, in Queensland at Noosa, Kedron, Woolloongabba and on the Gold Coast, andin Western Australia at Midland.
The AEC has over 100 dedicated veterinarians and veterinary nurses to ensure veterinary care is available around the clock.
The AEC staff are highly qualified and skilled in emergency and critical care. A commitment to lifelong learning is an integral part of our ethos. We have a Consultant in Emergency and Critical Care to ensure that our protocols are regularly updated and all patients are treated with the very latest knowledge. Each AEC is equipped with a range of diagnostic tools of the trade and we are ready, willing and able to deal with emergency situations.
