On-Site Emergency Vets

How to attend our Emergency out of Hours Vets

Whenever possible, we recommend that you call in advance if you need to visit us in an emergency.  In this way, we can arrange for your pet to be seen right away and provide you with the necessary advice or treatment as soon as you arrive.

When contacting our emergency out-of-hours vets they will initially provide you with free advice over the phone and ask any relevant questions to initially assess whether you need to bring your pet to the surgery for immediate treatment or if there is anything you can do until normal practice hours resume. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us in relation to our emergency out-of-hours vet service, even if you are unsure whether your pet is ill or it is an emergency.

When searching for an emergency Vet near me, we provide 24-hour on-site treatment and care for patients who are admitted during our regular opening hours and outside these hours due to our onsite facilities.  So, even if your pet is admitted during our normal opening hours but is required to be kept in overnight, you can be reassured they are not left alone and will be observed and monitored throughout the night by our expert vets and nurses.
