After hours emergency vet helping pets on the Southside of Brisbane

Pet owners in the Underwood and surrounding areas have trusted us with their pets for over 12 years.

Since opening our doors in 2008 we have seen thousands of pets suffering from life-threatening illnesses and injuries.

With high-tech medical equipment on-site, we are the preferred veterinarian for pets requiring special emergency treatment.

We are lucky to share our hospital with the amazing Pet ICU team, who provide intensive critical care for pets when they require 24/7 round the clock monitoring.

What we do

We see pets suffering from life-threatening illnesses such as:

  • Heat stroke
  • Twisted stomach
  • Dog attacks
  • FLUTD cats
  • Tick paralysis
  • Snake envenomation
  • Cane toad poisoning

Any time you are worried or anxious about your pet, come down and see us, we’re here to help.

We have many passions amongst us but we all have in common a love for taking care of our clients, patients, wildlife, and stray animals.

We are committed to delivering 5-star experiences to each client who comes to see us – just take a look at our Google reviews from real clients who have trusted us with their pets.

Meet our team

Our team members are trained and experienced emergency vet professionals, and we’ll be ready and waiting for you when you need us.

Very friendly and supportive staff. My dog injured his paw on a Saturday morning walk and with all other vets closed or busy we got recommended to go to Animal Emergency Service. I highly recommend anyone who lives in the Brisbane region to pay a visit to Animal Emergency Service for their pet’s needs.

Recent events had me taking my loved fur girl into Animal Emergency Jindalee. If and whatever the circumstances with your pet do not hesitate to bring them in for care with this team. If the outcome is unfortunately a sad one you are in the best place. If you have a hurt/sick one you are in best care with a team that will give you compassionate support the whole way through your ordeal. They know how much we love our pets. The highest accolades to vets, nurses & admin for the professional and friendly service any time of day. Thank you.

Our family has nothing but good things to say about this clinic – they have been there for us when our little man Squirt has needed urgent help, conducting necessary tests and supporting us with his ongoing palliative treatment.
The team are very good with our cat, even when he is being stroppy, and really go the extra mile to help us out when we need things done at the most inconvenient times!
A big thank you to Grace and all the fantastic team at AES Jindalee 🙂

Amazing. Truly a wonderful, professional team.
I needed their services after hours on 19.06.20 and everything was handled in a professional, courteous manner. My girl, Jessie, and I were greeted in a quick, efficient manner, and the procedure was explained in clear, precise terms. I was even informed of the cost prior to going ahead, which I feel is necessary in emergency situations, and it was lower than my expectations. Afterwards, the follow-up phone call was courteous and I was informed of everything that was done, and the end result. Even during COVID-19 restrictions, the team here is still friendly and welcoming. 👍

We are new to the area and I was so worried when My Fur baby hurt his paw! The staff were amazing took him in straight away, their COVID procedures were probably the best I have seen. They kept us up to date with what they were doing, Dr Gail was very informative and explained everything to us. They also offered us to call back anytime if we had any further concerns with him. Thanks to all of the amazing nurses and staff. Juke is fine and thanks for making it as pleasant as possible.

We cannot thank Dr. Ella Yarsley enough for the thoroughness and compassion shown towards our baby Kiara on our emergency visit Sunday.

No-one likes to have a situation where you have to take your pet to the emergency vet. But, it happens. I have had to take my little poodle on several occasions, and each time the service has been very professional, friendly and supportive. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking emergency help for their little furry baby – don’t hesitate. You will be a cared for very professionally and with a very friendly and caring atmosphere.

Was there for my puppy when he got sick after hours. I am deeply impressed that this vet service is available at all times that other vets are closed. Ie at night, weekends and public holidays…
