Adelaide Veterinary Referral Centre.

Established in 2000, Adelaide Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre (AVSARC) was the first facility in South Australia that offered a multidisciplinary small animal referral service by veterinarians with specialist training.

The AVSARC centre is purpose-built equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that provide you and your special pet companions with specialised care and expertise beyond what can be provided by your general veterinary practice.

Our sister clinic AAERC offers 24 hour emergency care  with an experienced and dedicated team of emergency veterinarians and qualified nurses. Located at 119 Anzac Highway, Kurralta Park SA 5037.

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive vet service accessed by referral from general practice veterinarians. We treat animals with severe, complex or protracted medical conditions requiring specialised equipment or expertise beyond that found in a general veterinary practice, much the same as specialist medical services available for humans. We offer referral services in:

  • Surgery
  • Internal Medicine
  • Dermatology
  • Diagnostic Imaging


No matter how big or small your concern is, one of our veterinary experts will be ready to help.

Do you have a vet question? Contact the AVSARC centre by phone on 08 8132 0533, email: or at 102 Magill Rd, Norwood.
