Emergency Care

What to do in a pet emergency

Here at Village Vets, we are open 7 days a week. However, if things go wrong outside of regular working hours, we have a dedicated on-call service. We have staff at the hospital 24 hours a day for in-patient care. 

For Meadowbank and Childer Thornton clients, this may involve a visit to the Village Vets branch in Buckley. If you ever need us, all you have to do is ring the normal phone number and you will reach our on-call team. They will take down all your details and forward your information onto the vet, who will ring you back as soon as possible.

Emergency cases out of hours are dealt with by Vets Now. Please call our normal number, which will then redirect you to Vets Now or call Vets Now directly on 01978 448876.
