Our ECC service explained

Recognising that specialist referral options were limited for critically-ill patients in the UK, particularly at weekends, Vets Now established a 24/7 emergency and critical care service in Glasgow in 2014.

Today the hospital’s emergency vets and veterinary nursing staff are led by renowned veterinary specialists Tobias Grave and Daniel Lewis — and they and their team provide expert emergency treatment to any critical case that’s too unstable to wait until the next working day for referral.

Typical cases referred to our emergency and critical care service from local practices include:

  • road traffic accidents
  • excessive bleeding
  • diarrhoea and vomiting in cats and dogs
  • choking pets/respiratory problems
  • collapsed small animals
  • seizures
  • suspected poisonings
