In addition to attending emergencies during normal opening hours, we are proud to provide our own out of hours service, staffed by our dedicated team of vets, nurses and support staff. This means that clients can be seen at their own surgery or visited at home by our regular staff whatever the time of the emergency, providing some familiarity and comfort to often stressful situations.
Our emergency service is available for farm, equine and small animal clients. Our vets are ambulatory and able to travel around the region to assist animals and their owners whatever the time of day or night. As during the day, with pets we sometimes advise being seen at the surgery so that equipment for diagnosis and treatment is available, however this can be discussed on a case by case basis. The duty vet answers the calls and is available for urgent advice.
Examples of emergencies commonly treated include difficult births and caesareans in pet and farm animals, wounds and injuries, emergency surgeries and medical treatment for sick animals.
