ARH Essendon is one of Melbourne’s largest specialist referral and emergency hospitals for pets.

We provide a 24 hour emergency service as well as specialist referral services in small animal surgery, ophthalmology and internal medicine (Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm). We also offer teleradiology in conjunction with our veterinary radiologists in Sydney.

This is supported by a range of complimentary on-site services including our pathology lab, diagnostic imaging, nursing team and intensive care unit.

All of our services are combined in the one fully integrated hospital, and our team of specialists and emergency veterinarians work closely together to ensure you pet is receiving the best care around the clock.

Our specialists have undertaken years of advanced training in veterinary medicine. After graduating as veterinarians they have completed internship and residency programs. They then passed rigorous examinations that subsequently allowed them to be registered in Australia as a specialist in their field.


Our hospital is open 24 hours a day and is managed by experienced emergency and critical care veterinarians to help your pet when an emergency arises.
