For general medical urgencies and for euthanasia

Out-of-hours home visits may be arranged upon request during routine hours.
Out-of-hours times are 7pm to 8am weekdays, 5pm to 9am weekends.

Out-of-hours general veterinary home visits

When your regular vet is closed, and you require veterinary attention for your pet at home, we can provide a home visit for medical issues which don’t require hospitalisation.

If your pet’s symptoms, condition or injury suggest that they require hospitalisation, we can refer you to a 24-hour veterinary hospital.

We do not provide a veterinary ambulance service, so are generally unable to transport sick and injured pets to a veterinary hospital but may do so in exceptional circumstances.

Out-of-hours home euthanasia

We recognise the need for home visit flexibility as the time for euthanasia approaches. Your pet may have a sudden unexpected decline out-of-hours, or you may wish to arrange friends and family to be there for the final goodbye. Knowing that at-home help may be available out-of-hours can help ease the stress at a very difficult time.

Out-of-hours emergency home visits

Due to the nature of a home visiting service, we cannot promise instant emergency coverage.
We are on the road much of the day in various locations. We may be a considerable from the location of an emergency and London traffic does not allow for rapid response times.
Most genuine emergencies need to be attended and treated at a veterinary clinic or hospital which has the facilities and extra staffing to cater for these conditions and injuries.
We do not register/attend pregnant/whelping dogs. For such cases we recommend that you make arrangements with your chosen local vet well in advance to clarify the veterinary care and emergency options that can be offered at whelping time.
