The Animal Referral Hospital is Australia’s largest veterinary specialist and emergency group, providing outstanding care for pets across our eight hospitals nationally.
We have state-of-the-art facilities and specialist veterinarians who are internationally recognised in their fields. In Victoria, we have two specialist and emergency hospitals, with our main hospital located in Essendon and another in Point Cook.
Both our hospitals are open 24 hours per day for your pet, and are staffed by our highly qualified team of veterinarians, nurses, and animal care attendants. Our nursing staff are dedicated to the care and well-being of pets in the hospital. Our staff are all devoted pet owners themselves, and pets are treated as our own, with every effort made to make their stay as comfortable as possible while keeping you informed every step of the way
At our Essendon clinic, ARH provides a 24 hour emergency service and specialist referral services in surgery, internal medicine and ophthalmology. This is supported by a range of complimentary services including diagnostic imaging, nursing and intensive care.Discover services
