At Southpaws, we pride ourselves on excellence, compassion, integrity and experience. We do everything in our power to achieve great outcomes for your beloved pets. All patients have onsite monitoring by a vet and a nurse when they are hospitalised, including overnight. Your pet is continually monitored, loved and cared for while staying with us.
We are NOT a primary-access Emergency Centre so our staff focus completely on patient care to give every treatment on-time. We do take referred emergencies - but using on-call staff so that in-patient care is not compromised.
