Out of Hours Emergencies
We provide all our own out of hours emergency services.
Our phone 01728 685 123 is always answered by ‘The Answering Service’, who will take all your details and contact the duty vet who will immediately phone you back to arrange a visit if required. Every week the vets have a case discussion where all cases seen that week are discussed so all the vets will know about ongoing cases and therefore be able to provide good continuity of care. We tend to use regular locums who know our practice very well and they too will be kept up to date with ongoing cases. Recently we have collaborated with Stowe Veterinary Group Large Animal Department to share our out of hours and emergency work; any information about ongoing cases will be shared between the treating vet & the emergency vet. The care of horses seen as an emergency will be handed back to the client’s registered practice the next working day. If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the practice.
We are on call for your horse emergency 24 hours a day / 365 days a year.
