Our Hospitals

We live and breathe emergencies, so much so that we don’t even open during the day for regular appointments – we leave that up to GP’s! You’ll work up cases, diagnose and treat patients, and mix with a great team of emergency vets practicing 5 star veterinary medicine.

Our Executive team


We’re an active part of the scientific community, and support our educators and universities alike. These are just some of our programs and university partners.

The Australian Paralysis Tick Advisory Panel, an initiative supported by Boehringer Ingelheim, established clinical guidelines  for the management of tick paralysis  in Australia. Recently, the panel reconvened to review and update the guidelines based on the latest literature. Our very own veterinarians Dr Ellie Leister and Dr Rob Webster sit on this panel to help answer important questions about this life-threatening condition and the parasite that causes it.

  • Paralysis tick distribution: what is expected due to bushfires and climate change?
  • Why are some cases more severe than others: Host, tick, or the environment?
  • Clinical cases studies: how to manage the complex and unexpected.
  • Why do cats present differently?

Emergency veterinarians are exposed to a wide gamut of issues, and often the sickest of the sick. Given that specialists are often unavailable at 1 am, it is essential that you have access to the latest Emergency & Critical Care resources available.This is why we’ve built VetApedia. 

VetAPedia is a collection of resources, journal reviews, veterinary blog articles and clinical content, designed specifically for Veterinary professionals.

Our vision is to advance the field of emergency and critical care in order to ensure patients receive the highest level of care. To achieve this, we will share exclusive resources developed in collaboration with the world’s foremost leaders in the industry. Access to VetApedia is completely free and exclusive to veterinary professionals.

Access to VetApedia is for free. Sign up here.

Can’t get enough? Want to discuss the latest in research with fellow peers? Join our journal club on the Sunshine Coast. Our regular gathering of vets is pretty casual, often combined with a cold pint or a delicious mocktail. We discuss scientific papers found in well-renowned research journals, always relevant to the cases seen on the Sunshine Coast. Then, the discussion begins. Attendees ask clarifying questions, inquire about different aspects of the experimental design, critique the methods, and bring a healthy amount of skepticism (or praise) to the results. The ideas found and discussed at the journal club can help expand and balance each vet scientist’s scope of what is happening in the world of research while informing experimental plans and clinical decisions. Sound good? Don’t be shy – request the annual events calendar and we’ll see you soon!
