The Aquarium Vet frequently receives requests to assist with home aquarium fish. For logistical reasons, a home visit is usually not possible. To assist, an E-consultation is now available with The Aquarium Vet.

The fee for this is $ 85 (inc. GST).
To purchase an e-consultation, please visit The Aquarium Vet store.

Following your purchase from the store, you will receive an email. Attached to the email will be a document to be completed. The more information you provide, the more likely it will be that The Aquarium Vet can assist with your pet fish. You will receive an email reply within 24-48 hours (2 business days). We are also more than happy to liaise with a local veterinarian if medication is required. Please note an e-consult does not involve house calls/personal visits/ telephone calls etc.
