At the Barn, we provide our own emergency service, 365 days a year.

The current trend is for Veterinary Practices to contract out their Emergency Out of Hours Service to other providers. Here at The Barn Veterinary Practice we cover emergency out of hours cases at our own surgeries. We pride ourselves in always having a vet on call at every hour, day or night, 365 days a year.
We strongly believe it is in the best interests of our clients and their pets that should an emergency arise outside normal surgery hours, their pet can be attended to by our own vets, in our own surgeries, with your pet’s notes available.

Our emergency service runs from 7:00pm – 8.30am each weekday night and Saturdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays. (Excluding normal weekend surgery times which are charged at the usual weekday rate).
Clients should be reminded that this service is for veterinary emergencies only, all routine, non-emergency calls should be made when the practice opens in the morning. Depending on the time of day or night, an emergency fee will be charged if your pet is seen by a vet, in addition to any diagnostics and treatment carried out.
