EMERGENCIES

AND AFTER HOURS

AFTER HOURS


We are subscribed to a dedicated emergency service, similar to A&E, where the vets and nurse are specially trained in emergency and critical care.

They stay awake all night to provide advice and constant care and supervision for any hospitalised patients.
