If your pet falls ill out of hours, telephone Garden Veterinary Group on 01249 653181, and you will be given the mobile number of the duty vet.

There will be an extra charge for out-of-hours appointments, which we will make clear to you over the phone before you travel to us. The charge covers the cost of 24-hour staff and facilities, which we believe is outweighed by the benefits of being able to access us in-house.


Unlike at other vets, out-of-hours appointments are available in-house at Garden Veterinary Group. This means that if your pet needs to see a vet outside the normal practice opening hours, you won’t need to drive miles out of your way in the middle of the night. Instead, you’ll be greeted by our own friendly team in the familiar surroundings of Garden Veterinary Group.

We’re proud to be the only vet in the area that offers this service – it’s part of our commitment to a community we’ve been supporting for more than 50 years. Because we don’t outsource our out-of-hours appointments, our clients have peace of mind when they need it most, and our patients benefit from the presence of a more relaxed owner.
