We operate a 24-hour emergency service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year (for all species).
The practice always has two of its own veterinary surgeons on call. They can be contacted via the usual practice telephone number, which will be answered by either a veterinary surgeon or by the outside answering service. The obvious emergencies, such as significant haemorrhage or severe colic are given priority.
All the veterinarians have access to mobile phones and/or bleepers and can usually be contacted quickly. They respond as soon as they can; which means as soon as the case in hand is ‘fixed’.
