Emergencies

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY CALL 01474 815333

As an RCVS certified Veterinary Hospital, their nursing staff are on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to care for in-patients. This means that if your pet is ever admitted to the hospital, he or she will never be alone during their stay.   Each branch is backed up by the latest technologies with access to your pets’ full medical records. They are also able to transport patients between branches by way of their practice vehicles

Equine patients can be seen at their place of stabling or at the hospital.  The duty veterinary surgeon will be equipped with a four-wheel drive Land Rover with all the medical and surgical equipment to deal with common emergencies. This also allows access to horses that have collapsed or become injured far from their stable on a ride or out in a field. Mobile radiography and ultrasonography allows rapid assessment of injuries. This ensures the most appropriate first aid and immediate care is given. The service is backed up by their links to local equine hospitals for those patients that require more specialist care.

Farm animals can be seen on the farm or at the hospital if appropriate. The farm team come equipped for all the common emergencies encountered in general practice. Payment will be required at the time of consultation by way of cash or card payment. An out of hours fee will be incurred. An estimate can be provided on request.
