Any emergencies during the day can be brought in and we will see them as soon as we can.
Emergencies after hours
Please call 01206 842224 Vets Now. This number is also on our answer machine.
Vets Now is a dedicated out of hours emergency service with their own emergency veterinary staff. They work from Penrose and Partners premises in Highwoods when that practice closes. As it is difficult for our staff to work 24 hours a day we work with Vets Now to provide the best care for your pets.
The staff stay on site all night and on the weekends and are available for advice over the phone (free of charge) or for consultations. They do charge an out of hours fee for consultations.
