A 24hr emergency service is available outside of normal hours. Emergency contact numbers are obtained from an answering machine by telephoning the surgery on the normal number (01462 685882).
We feel it is important that your pet is able to receive the best emergency care out of hours and so from 30th March 2015 emergency cases out of hours will be seen by the Bedfordshire Emergency Veterinary Treatment Service (Beds VETS). This service is based at the
Boness Veterinary Hospital,
125 Bedford Road,
Barton Le Clay
Beds VETS provides a hospital style emergency service staffed 24 hours a day by vets experienced in emergency treatment.
When you contact the emergency service you will be offered advice or an appointment at the hospital. If your pet is admitted to the hospital it will either be discharged to you when recovered or transferred back to our care the following day. All details of treatment, or any advice given, is emailed to us immediately afterwards for updating your records here.
You will be required to pay the cost of treatment at the time of consultation and if your pet is admitted a deposit for the estimated cost of treatment is required at the time of admission. If your pet is insured the cost of emergency treatment should be covered by your policy and we do advise you to have insurance cover. Our staff can discuss pet insurance with you at any time.
