Emergency Veterinary Care

24/7 Care, 365 Days A Year

We offer emergency vet care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

We see all emergency patients at our hospital at Pride Veterinary Centre.  All patients are supervised by our own fully qualified vets and nurses at the hospital 24 hours a day. Our telephones are answered by our own experienced staff, day and night, to offer advice and to arrange appointments.

If you have an emergency during normal hours (8am-7pm) then please come straight to Pride Veterinary Centre and we will see you immediately. It would help us to prepare for your arrival if you call us on 01332 678333 so that we know to expect you. Please tell us what your pet’s problem is and we can offer you some advice on first aid and how best to transport your pet.

It is always best to bring your pet to us for treatment, rather than requesting a home or roadside visit, as we have all the facilities required for emergency care in the practice.

If time is critical, please come straight to Pride Veterinary Centre and we will see you straight away.

Call 01332 678333 if your pet requires emergency veterinary care, any time of the day or night.

Vets At Night Service

When you go to bed, it’s great to have the comfort of knowing your pet has a whole team working through the night dedicated to their care.

The Pride Veterinary Centre Vets at Night team works on site throughout the night (7:00pm-8:00am) to give dedicated care to emergency cases and hospitalised pets. The vets and nurses have further training and considerable experience of critical care, and emergency surgery and medicine.

Our telephones will be answered throughout the night by experienced staff for advice or to arrange an appointment. Appointments may be booked by phoning at any time during the night.

Our aim is to offer you and your pet round the clock reassurance. And whether you are registered with Scarsdale Vets or not, we will happily see your pet during the night and once we have treated them, we can send the notes to your own vet for any follow up.

Home Visits & Transportation Of Pets

Please be aware that owners are responsible for transporting their animals to our hospital, including in emergency situations, where there is access to a full range of equipment, veterinary medicines and appropriate facilities. Owners are encouraged to think about how they can do this and make plans before an emergency arises. Examples include their own transport, a family member, friend or neighbour’s transport, an animal ambulance or a taxi service that will transport animals.

Veterinary surgeons are not obliged to attend away from the practice, unless in their professional judgement it is appropriate to do so. This applies even if owners demand attendance away from the practice or the owner’s personal circumstances mean that they have to make special arrangements to transport their animal to the practice. Where a veterinary surgeon has declined to visit but offered to see the animal at the practice the responsibility for the animal’s welfare rests with the owner
