What if I have an emergency outside normal opening hours?

Call the normal clinic number to speak to the emergency team.

With regret, we are not normally able to offer visits and you will be required to bring your animal to the surgery.

What if I have an emergency during normal opening hours?

Emergency cases during daytime hours do not need an appointment.

However, please do call the local surgery before coming down to let us know you are on your way.

Will we need to wait to be seen for an emergency?

Emergencies are seen on a triage basis with the sickest patients seen first.

At busy times this may mean that none urgent cases have a long wait and we appreciate your understanding with this.
