The provision of veterinary services out of normal hours is costly to maintain and we ask all clients to ensure that they come prepared with the means to settle any bill arising from the treatment provided. Clients with pet insurance in place must present current policy documents or have the means to settle any bill arising from the treatment provided. 

Why don't we cover all the Out of Hours ourselves?

Our vets work hard each day to ensure your pet receives the best care we can provide. By working alongside Vets Now and offering a shared weekend service with Riverside Vets to cover some of our out of hours emergencies, it enables our vets and nurses to get a good night’s rest, at nights and weekends, so we can continue providing the high quality care during the day that we pride ourselves on.

Please be aware that because of the nature of out of hours emergencies, a night-time or weekend appointment will be more expensive than seeing a vet during usual hours. The on-call vet will be happy to discuss this with you before commencing any treatment. The provision of veterinary services out of normal hours is costly to maintain, and we ask all clients to ensure that they come prepared with the means to settle any bill arising from the treatment provided.
