Out-of-hours emergency care for veterinary practices

Our service to you is simple. We provide out-of-hours emergency care for your clients at nights, weekends and bank holidays.

This means that you and your team can focus on providing a fabulous service to your clients during the day and trust our team to take over at night.

How does the service work?
Where are your out-of-hours clinics?

Typically we don’t have our own practices — although we do have three 24/7 hospitals which provide out-of-hours care, too.

Our service is run from a conveniently-located “host practice” which has the space and facilities to enable us to provide the highest level of out-of-hours care.

Your clients will be able to find us easily as we have our own Vets Now signage outside and we’ll also give you maps and leaflets to pass on to them.

Our clinics are staffed by our own vets and vet nurses, who don’t work during the day. We also invest in training our staff in emergency and critical care medicine so they are equipped to deal with the emergency cases we see at nights and on weekends.

Sound good? Get in touch with our partner practice support team by clicking here. They will be delighted to tell you more about the service in your local area.

If there’s not a Vets Now clinic local to you, find out more about our clinic opening plans and if we can work with you to open a Vets Now in your area.
