Emergency out of hours service

We know your pet can become ill or suffer accidents at any time. To make sure you have access to high quality care at night, weekends and bank holidays, we have chosen to partner with Vets Now, the leading provider of Out of Hours care. The team at Vets Now are always there when we are closed, so you can rest assured that you and your pet will have a vet and nurse on hand, whether it's four in the morning or half-way through Christmas. Their fully qualified staff will provide free advice over the phone and advise whether you need to take your pet into their clinic for immediate treatment. Please don’t hesitate to call them if you’re at all concerned. By using Vets Now to cover our Out of Hours Emergencies it enables our vets and nurses to get a good night’s rest so we can continue providing the high quality care during the day that we pride ourselves on. Vets Now take over from us when we close in the evenings and at the weekends from Saturday lunchtime onwards. It is always best to call us first as we will either be there to answer your call, or will have an answer machine message with Vets Now’s details for you. Vets Now can give you advice over the phone and arrange immediate appointments to see them if it is required.

We will work closely with Vets Now to ensure that any of our patients seen out of hours, receive the very best level of care. If your pet is admitted for hospitalisation and is well enough to travel the next working day, we will arrange for a member of the Foxhall team to collect your pet and bring them back to our practice. The cost of transporting your pet will be met by us. Your pet will then stay with us throughout the remainder of their treatment and will be cared for by the Foxhall veterinary team even if further nights hospitalisation is required.

Please feel free to contact the practice with any questions you may have and we will be only to happy to discuss them with you.

We value your loyalty and hope you will continue to support us. We will continue to strive to provide an extremely high standard and continuity of care for your pet.
