About Our Emergency Service
Our Out of Hours Emergency Service operates from our award winning Small Animal Hospital. We have a dedicated and experienced team of Vets and Nurses dealing solely with emergency cases. The Small Animal Hospital can also provide specialist referral care onsite without the need to transport your pet.
We can also provide overnight facilities for pets in need of some extra care. In the majority of cases your pet will be transferred back to your usual veterinary surgeon in the morning (unless your veterinary surgeon requests specialist referral care or your pet is unfit to travel due to their illness). Your veterinary surgeon will be kept up to date with any visits or calls you make.
When to contact us
- In all emergency situations we recommend contacting your usual veterinary surgeon.
- If they are closed they will have a message detailing their out of hours’ protocol.
- If you have no regular veterinary surgeon, contact us on the number above.
Please contact us before arriving as this allows us to triage your pet and ensures we have all the necessary equipment in place to treat when you arrive.
