Emergency Service


The Practice provides a twenty four hour emergency service 365 days a year with a vet and nurse always available. To contact the duty veterinary surgeon please just phone your normal surgery number: 01425 614482 or 01590 673687 listen to the answer-phone message and hold to be put straight through to our out-of-hours call centre who will get the duty vet to phone you back. 


House Calls

The veterinary surgeons are able to make house calls in certain situations, however most cases can be seen more quickly and effectively at the surgery where more extensive facilities are available. If you require a house call please try to telephone the appropriate surgery before 10:00am.
Because house calls involve travelling and are very time consuming for the veterinary surgeon there is a substantial additional cost to reflect this service.


Ambulance Service

The practice has an ambulance service staffed by the practice nurses, so sick animals can be collected and delivered home on request. This is much cheaper than a home visit from a vet and often much quicker as the vets are often tied up with appointments and operations at the surgery. If you would like your pet to be collected by the ambulance, please telephone us at the surgery you normally attend..
