Vets Now are the leading provider of out-of-hours veterinary care in the UK. Vets Now work alongside the Oaks to ensure you have access to a vet whenever you need one, regardless of time. Their clinic is open when the Oaks is closed.
By using the Vets Now service, we can begin each working day fully rested and ready to face the day’s challenges. Similarly during the night your pet will be seen by staff who only work out of hours and are therefore fresh and ready to offer the best possible care. And you can be rest assured that you can phone for a vet anytime without worrying about disturbing anybody.
Fully qualified vets, nurses and receptionists are based in the clinic for the full duration of their shift. All staff receive regular training with a particular emphasis on emergency and critical care of small animals.
Vets Now staff can offer advice over the phone and although an appointment is always offered it is not always necessary. In fact only around a fifth of calls result in an appointment and telephone advice is provided free of charge.
As you would expect, staffing and equipping a dedicated emergency clinic is expensive. Please be advised their charges will be higher than for routine consultations and Vets Now will inform you of costs when you phone.
They are an independent company so you will be asked to pay at the time of treatment. Vets Now accept all major debit and credit cards or cash payments.
Vets Now fees should be covered in the same way as any other veterinary fees by your insurance company. If you are in any doubt, check the detail of your policy with your provider.
