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.
If your pet falls ill out of hours, telephone Garden Veterinary Group on 01249 653181, and you will be given advice on how to proceed.
Emergency care for small animals
Farm / Large Animal Emergencies
We provide our own out-of-hours service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for farm and horse emergencies.
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 Day. Their fully qualified staff will provide free advice over the phone and advise whether you need to take your pet into their clinic for treatment. Please don’t hesitate to call them if you’re at all concerned.
Using Vets Now to cover our out-of-hours emergencies enables our vets and nurses to rest properly at nights and weekends, so we can continue providing the high-quality care that we pride ourselves on during our opening hours.
Vets Now take over from us when we close in the evenings – from 7.30pm to 8.30am on weekdays; before 8.30am and after 5pm on Saturdays; and before 9am and after 12pm Sundays. It is always best to call us first, as we will either be there to answer 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.
Please be aware that because of the nature of out-of-hours emergencies, a night-time or weekend appointment will be more expensive than seeing a vet during usual hours. Vets Now will discuss this with you at the time of appointment and before commencing any treatment. Why not consider pet insurance to give you peace of mind that your pet will be able to receive the best possible care 24 hours a day?
