Emergencies

 At Axe Valley we offer a 24 hour emergency service 365 days of the year, with our own Vets and Qualified Veterinary Nurses.

If you require Emergency Veterinary Care Please call us on 01934 712229

 


 
Our Out of Hours Provision

Every Veterinary Practice is obligated to either provide or make arrangements for another veterinary business to handle their OOH calls.

We are proud to provide our own OOH cover to our loyal and active clients.

If you have an emergency or need to contact us, please call our emergency number 01934712229.

When the surgeries are closed your call will be forwarded to an answering service who will contact the duty vet. If, after discussion, we need to see your pet you will be directed to our Blackford Branch (BS28 4NG) where the duty vet will meet you.

We do not have a veterinary surgeon in attendance at the surgery at all times, so please do not turn up without contacting us in advance.

Home visits are rarely appropriate OOH as so little can be achieved for your pet. Please do not be offended that we insist that whenever possible animals are brought in to the surgery at Blackford.

 

This service is designed as an additional service for our Registered Active Pets (i.e. animals presented annually for health checks and vaccinations or on regular medication and under our care). We reserve the right to enforce the surcharge. If you are registered at another practice we will direct you back to their service, however if you are unable to contact your usual vets we will always act in the best interests of your pets.
