Vets Now are the largest and longest standing veterinary emergency care service in the UK with a dedicated night team to cover your needs.  

Why have we teamed up with Vets Now? 

The veterinary profession has seen big changes over the past few years with the effects of Brexit and Covid-19 causing a simultaneous demand for and sink of vets across the UK. Collaboration is essential for us to continue to provide you with a quality of care and service we both believe in and can sustain. 

Inpatient hospital care

Once your animal is seen and admitted by our vets, they can stay with us until discharge, cared for by our own vets and nurses 24/7. All care is based on the assessed clinical need and staff will not be in the building overnight unless deemed necessary (the larger site is attended). The minimum number of checks carried out would be every 4 hours during the day and 6-8 hours overnight.  

If you would prefer to transport your pet to one of the Vets Now clinics for overnight only care, this can be arranged.
