Emergencies

PLEASE CALL THE NORMAL SURGERY NUMBER OUT OF HOURS ON: 01949 662754 or 01939 232291

We offer 24-hour cover for when your pet needs veterinary attention outside of normal hours. Weeknights are always covered by our own vets. We share some of our weekend cover with another local practice, typically every other weekend. Those weekends are covered by Hampton Veterinary Centre in Malpas, which is a 10 minute drive from Whitchurch.
