The Adelaide Veterinary Referral Centre was first opened in July 2000. It was the first facility in South Australia offering a multidisciplinary small animal referral service by veterinarians. Our centre has been purpose-built ensuring a pleasant environment and state-of-the-art facilities for all our patients.

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive 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, Dermatology, and Medicine.

In conjunction our sister clinic AAERC located at 119 Anzac Hwy, Kurralta Park, we have the resourses, knowledge and experience of the emergency vets and nurses so that we can provide 24 hour monitoring and care of all referral patients.

For any general enquiries you are welcome to contact our friendly Reception staff who will help you however they can.

All you need to do is call (08) 8132 0533 between 8.30am and 6.30pm Monday to Friday.
