Our Hospital

EVH Emergency Vet Hospital

EVH Emergency Vet Hospital is located in Wangara, near the city of Joondalup. The hospital is now open 24/7  to provide veterinary care for your pets. Our team of veterinarians and nurses assist when the unexpected happens, when things get busy or when your hours of work make visiting your regular vet challenging.

No 15 Minute Appointment

At EVH we understand that when with us your pets are generally very unwell and managing difficult health situations. Your time at the hospital usually includes diagnosis, prognosis, treatment plans, appointments and medication schedule. This often involves detailed and complex medical information. The veterinarians and vet nurses make sure you have all the time you need to ensure you have the confidence to make the best decision for your pets health care.

In House Digital X-Rays

The hospitals digital x-ray machine provides our veterinarians with the ability to help diagnose what is wrong with your pet. It is utilised for seeing things your pet might have inadvertently eaten, assessing broken bones, investigating heart disease or identifying chronic disease.

The digital processing means the x-rays are developed in a matter of seconds. As pets need to be sedated before they have their x-rays it means they have less time under anaesthesia This ensures that your pet’s x-rays can be performed quickly and efficiently, which lessens the time under general anaesthesia.

The advanced technology in the hospital digital x-ray machine produces quality images assisting the veterinarians in making accurate assessments.

The x-ray images can also be quickly forwarded on to radiology specialists around the world who can assist in the rare cases where unusual readings have been identified.

In House Blood Tests

The hospitals in-house blood laboratory processes bloods tests for dogs and cats both quickly and reliably. It helps the veterinarians determine the underlying health issue and work collaboratively to  implement a successful medical intervention based on the results.

Our laboratory allows us to be a proactive and timely partner in your pets health care. Occasionally, the hospital needs to escalate a blood sample to an external laboratory. The turn around time can be a few days to a week. This depends on the type of test and the laboratory’s workload.

In House Endoscope

The hospitals endoscope is used to remove objects sitting in your pets stomach. Using a tiny video camera, with very bright lights at the end of a very narrow scope, the surgeon can grasp or snare items such as; underwear, socks, string, fish hooks, toys and bones.

If there is an object in the stomach and plus another further in the intestines then a different surgery will be recommended. This is because it is difficult or impossible to remove objects that have moved into the intestines with an endoscope.

Whilst no surgery is risk free, the endoscope reduces the recovery time for your pet, reduces scarring and is considered a less invasive surgical option.

Separate Cat Area

The hospital has a separate waiting area for cats. It provides an environment with exposure to the smells and sounds of dogs. From there, families can access the secluded consultation room and cat ward. This is a quieter and calm section of the hospital.

If your cat needs to stay in hospital our cat beds do not face each other which is less confronting for your cat. This area is also separate and can be closed off  from the dogs. This area also has minimal use of bright lights unless medically required.

During their stay, every effort is made to make your cat comfortable.  The hospital uses Tuff mats which are a thick, non toxic, luxurious mattress base. Then we add blankets and towels on-top provide a warm and comfortable bed.  Every effort is made so that your cats stay in hospital is as calming as possible.

Modern Surgery Rooms

EVH has modern and up to date equipment and technologies to provide care for your pets.

The two theatre rooms offer a sterile and safe environment in which veterinary surgeries are undertaken with consideration to reducing the risks to the patient. The hospital theatre designs found in the veterinary practice use many techniques and technology derived from human hospital designs.
