24-hour pet hospital opens in Portimão

Veterinary || A new 24/7 veterinary hospital opened last week (January 20) in Portimão.

The 300sqm hospital is located on Avenida Afonso Henriques, near the town’s old CTT post office on the riverfront, and is managed by three vets.

“We are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year,” said part-manager and owner Michelle Paralta, from Lagos.

Besides providing emergency veterinary care, the hospital also offers all the same standard consultations that other clinics offer for cats, dogs and other animals.

“We have separate waiting rooms for dogs and cats to avoid stress, as well as other facilities like our own lab and an x-ray room,” she told us.

The opening of the hospital is scheduled for the end of February.

The hospital’s website is currently under development. For more information about its services, contact the hospital or visit its Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hospitalveterinarioportimao)
