Emergencies - What To Do

  • Emergency During Surgery Hours
  • Emergency Outside of Surgery Hours

Emergency During Surgery Hours

If your pet has a problem during surgery hours, please telephone the practice - 02871 262596 - immediately and we will ensure that you are offered an appointment on a priority basis.

Please make it clear that the matter is not routine and we will do our utmost to attend to you at the earliest opportunity.

Follow our guidance for emergency arrangements during evenings and week-ends by calling our practice and following our answerphone instructions.

Please note that we operate by appointments only.

Emergency Outside of Surgery Hours

Even when our clinic is closed, one of our vets is always available, on call, to take care of any unexpected emergencies. Just call our emergency number - 02871 262596 - and our answering service will direct you to the appropriate mobile phone number to ring.

Please remember our on call vets work very hard throughout the day too. Reserve this service for true emergencies only. When in doubt, call your veterinarian. It is always better to hear, “That’s nothing to be worried about”, rather than, “I wish we’d seen her sooner”.
