I would totally recommend Animal Emergency Service at Tanawha. Dr Carly & Dr Danielle saved my 4 month old puppy’s life. Harvey came into their care very sick. They were great communicators with what care they were proposing and he has fully recovered. They even made time to send a picture at midnight to put my mind at rest. Above and beyond 🐶♥️ Thank you Carly & Danielle xx

We rushed our dog to the vet late one night this week after she suffered a bad allergic reaction, breaking out in lumps and redness all over her body. Dr Craig and the team were awesome, treating her immediately and giving her the best care. We were two very worried fur-parents and they did a fantastic job treating our dog and explaining everything they did. We could not recommend them enough for animal emergency care on the Sunshine Coast.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your vet, vet nurse and staff that were on last night at emergency vet clinic at Tanawha. We had to make the heartbreaking decision to put our dog to sleep and I was given so much compassion and advice and so much time to say goodbye. I never felt rushed or pressured in to anything and I just wanted to say a huge thank you. My husband couldn’t be there and I am 6 months pregnant so as you can imagine it was a very traumatic time. Thank you once again for everything your staff did to make it as stress free as possible.
