Our out of hours emergency service is provided by VETS AT NIGHT. If your pet becomes ill or is involved in an accident outside of our surgery hours you can rest assured that a dedicated emergency veterinary team is available to care for your pet should the worst happen.

VETS AT NIGHT only work outside normal working hours, ensuring they are fresh and ready to see your pet while your own vet is off duty.

VETS AT NIGHT can advise you over the phone and will tell you if they think it is safe for your pet to wait until the morning to see a vet. However, if you really want to see a vet they will always be happy to see you.

In case of emergency simply call our usual number, anytime of day or night: 01332 345119.
