Veterinary House Hospital, at 339 Prince Alfred Street, is situated within the city of Pietermaritzburg, near St Anne’s Hospital and Merchiston Primary School. The hospital is open for consultations from 7:30am until 5:45pm, where we consult throughout the day. We are proud to claim a 24-hour emergency service operating 365 days of the year for when any animal is in need of emergency medical treatment.

The Hospital comprises an experienced team of veterinarians, nurses and staff. We have two general wards as well as an isolation ward for animals with contagious diseases. We have advanced diagnostic machines including ultrasound, digital xrays and an in-house laboratory.  We are able to perform sterilisations, dentals, routine surgeries, orthopaedics, advanced soft tissue surgeries, advanced ophthalmologic (eye) procedures and even provide innovative veterinary care for birds and exotics. Our veterinary nurses provide in-hospital treatment and the loving post-operative care required to help your cherished pet make a full recovery.  The front shop is fully stocked with a range of foods and accessories, providing your loved ones with optimum nutrition and stylish attire.

House calls can be arranged for vaccinations, check-ups and for peaceful home euthanasia. Our large animal veterinarians are kept busy on farms treating horses, cattle, pigs, sheep and goats. Game capture completes our diverse field of expertise. The Vet House Team continuously strives to provide better service for our clients, and better care for our patients.
