Veterinary Referral Hospital

Welcome to Veterinary Referral Hospital! Our new state-of-the-art veterinary hospital provides 24 hour pet emergency and specialist services to pets in need.

In October 2019 we moved from Hallam to our new purpose built facility at 36 Lonsdale Street Dandenong. As part of the relocation we are proudly incorporating the emergency services of Hallam AEC.

The resources, knowledge and experience of our veterinarians and veterinary nurses in our emergency and critical care department support our specialty service and are available 24 hours, 7 days a week.

At Veterinary Referral Hospital we will work closely with you and your regular veterinarian to find the best treatment option for your pet. We pride ourselves on delivering a comprehensive referral facility for animals with severe, complex or prolonged conditions.

At VRH we provide the specialised equipment and expertise beyond what can be delivered in general veterinary practice. Our new hospital features advanced surgical theatres, imaging suites, dedicated canine and feline intensive care units, custom built 1.5T MRI, CT, digital x-ray, ultrasound, fluoroscopy and lots more. We look forward to welcoming you and your pet to the new VRH, 24/7!
