During Normal Surgery Hours

If your pet has a problem during surgery hours, please telephone the practice immediately and we will ensure that you're 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.

If your pet has an emergency during our normal opening hours, please call the practice and we will advise you what to do next.

What happens in case of an emergency?

When you phone the emergency number out of surgery hours, your call will be directed to a dedicated veterinary answering service. You will be asked for your name, contact details including your phone number and the reason for your call. This information will be passed on to the Vet on call who will phone you back within a short period of time.

Please keep your telephone line free, if you are waiting for a Vet to phone you. If your enquiry is not urgent please phone during normal surgery hours.
