After-Hours Emergency Care Services

To better meet the needs of our pet community during emergencies, we have joined a shared emergency on-call group for after-hours emergencies from 7 PM to 8 AM every day of the week, starting July 2nd at 7 PM.

This group is a collaboration among several local animal hospitals, including:

  • Beachy Cove Animal Hospital
  • Avalon Animal Hospital
  • Sunrise Animal Hospital
  • Torbay Road Animal Hospital
  • Terra Nova Veterinary Clinic
  • Baccalieu Trail Animal Hospital
  • Topsail Road Veterinary Clinic
  • Paradise Animal Hospital
  • Kenmount Road Animal Hospital
  • CBS Animal Hospital
  • Memorial Animal Hospital
  • St. John’s Veterinary Hospital

How It Works

  • After hours: Please call Torbay Road Animal Hospital at 709-753-0506 and press 8 for an emergency.
  • Call forwarding: Your call will be forwarded to our Emergency line.
  • On-call clinic: You will be directed to the on-call clinic.
  • No specific clinic: If you do not have one, call our line and let us know, and you will be directed to the hospital on-call.

We kindly ask for your patience and understanding with our staff, who are dedicated to providing the best care for your pets in their time of need.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at 709-753-0506 or We will be happy to assist you.
