Caring Animal Hospital in Clermont and Rockhampton

The Emerald Veterinary Clinic commenced operations in 1969,

providing quality animal health care and advice ever since.

Since 1969, Emergency Veterinary Clinic and Boarding Kennels has helped pet owners and their pets feel safe, happy, and calm. We’re proud to say that we’ve helped pets live long, healthy lives since we were first established. As an emergency vet in Emerald and Blackwater, we’ve always been able to offer expert pet care opinions and high-quality services.

Committed to Pet Care for Over 40 Years

When our founder, Brian, started our clinic in the late ‘60s, he worked primarily with large animals. Now, our practice focuses on smaller animals like cats and dogs. Our group is small enough to make sure each pet receives personal, individualized care and large enough that we can offer service ranging from ultrasounds to completely diagnostics and surgery.

We’re also closely linked to nearby specialists, so if your pet experiences a problem that requires more in-depth attention, we’ll refer you to the nearest, most experienced professional in that field.

We have all the necessary licenses and registrations to treat your pet, so you can always feel the peace of mind that comes from knowing your furry family member is in the best hands.

Dedicated to Professionalism and Compassion

At Emerald Veterinary Surgery, we are in the business of loving and caring for animals as if they were our own. Each person in our animal hospital works with complete compassion and professionalism to ensure that your beloved pet gets the exact care they need. 

Our Commitment 

When you bring your four-legged family member into our animal hospital, you will be greeted by our compassionate, caring team. We are committed to providing dedicated, professional, and thorough veterinary services to get your pet back to their best self.
