What to do in an emergency


What to do in an emergency

We know your pet can become ill or suffer accidents at any time. To make sure you have access to high quality care at night, weekends and bank holidays, we have chosen to partner with Vets Now the leading provider of out of hours’ care.

The team at Vets Now are always there when we are closed so you can rest assured that you and your pet will have a vet and nurse on hand, whether it’s four in the morning or half-way through Christmas. Their fully qualified staff will provide free advice over the phone and advise whether you need to take your pet in to their clinic for immediate treatment. Please don’t hesitate to call them if you are at all concerned.

By using Vets Now to cover our out of hours’ emergencies it enables our vets and nurses to get a good night’s rest so that we can continue providing the high quality care during the day that we pride ourselves on. Vets Now take over from us when we close in the evenings and at the weekends from 2:00pm on Saturday.

Vets Now can give you advice over the phone and arrange immediate appointments to see you if it is required.

Please be aware that because of the nature of out of hours’ emergencies, a night time or weekend appointment will be more expensive than seeing a vet during usual hours. Vets Now will discuss this with you at the time of the appointment and before starting any treatment.
