Out of hours service update!

We are making some important and exciting changes to our out-of-hours veterinary service and what you need to do if your pet has an emergency at night, over the weekend or a bank holiday.

At Blackmore Vale Vets, we know your pets are part of your family and our priority is, and always will be, to ensure they have access to the very best care, at all times. For this reason, we have made a recent change to our out-of-hours provision, partnering with Vets Now, a dedicated pet emergency service which provides expert emergency care out of hours, enabling us to concentrate on caring for our in-patients.

Vets Now is the pet equivalent of an accident and emergency service.  With their local practices based at Wimborne and Salisbury, their veterinary teams are specially trained in both emergency and critical care and work only out of hours, through the night, at weekends and on bank holidays.  That means they are ready and waiting to either give you advice or see you and your pet.  Because they only work out of hours, they’ll be up and ready at the time you need them.

Vets Now has been providing dedicated out-of-hours emergency pet care across the UK for more than 15 years, and now responds to almost half-a-million pet emergencies every year. We believe our partnership offers you and your pet the very best level of care, day and night.  You can find out more about their Wimborne service here https://www.vets-now.com/find-an-emergency-vet/bournemouth/ and their Salisbury service here https://www.vets-now.com/find-an-emergency-vet/salisbury/.

During our normal opening hours, there will be no change in our service.  We will continue to provide you with the highest standards of veterinary care. However, if your pet falls ill outside normal surgery hours, you can call the Vets Now team who will be happy to talk through your concerns.

At Blackmore Vale Vets, we are proud to be working with Vets Now and believe this new partnership offers you and your pet the best level of care both day and night.  

In an emergency please call our normal practice number and you will be guided to the nearest service, alternatively please see our ‘Emergency Page’ on our website.

If you have any questions about this new service, please feel free to call us on 01258 472293.

From all at The Blackmore Vale Veterinary Centre

If your pet has an emergency during our normal opening hours, please call the normal practice number 01258 472293.  If your pet requires emergency treatment you will normally be asked to visit our surgery.  Most conditions can be treated more efficiently at the surgery where there is a full range of medication and equipment available.

If you have an emergency out of normal opening hours, at night, at the weekend or on a bank holiday, please contact our normal practice number 01258 472293 to be best directed to our partners Vets Now.  Alternatively you can call Vets Now directly on 01202 859933 (Wimborne) or 01722 238079 (Salisbury).

Small Animal Appointments:

We are open Monday – Friday 8:30AM – 6:30PM, Saturday 8.30AM – 12.30PM (excluding bank holidays).

Consultations are by appointment only and are normally scheduled for 15 minutes – this allows us time to give our best level of care to you and your pet.  Appointments also enable you to see the veterinary surgeon of your choice and allow for continuity of care.

ANY EMERGENCY WILL ALWAYS BE ATTENDED TO IMMEDIATELY.

Small animal visits:

We are happy to visit your pet at home when necessary, but do please keep in mind that we may be able to do much more at the surgery where we have a full range of medication, equipment and trained staff.  Please note there is an extra charge for house calls.

Equine:

Please contact the surgery to make an appointment for one of our vets to come out to see your horse.  Alternatively you can transport your horse to the surgery for booster vaccinations if that suits you best.

ALL EMERGENCY CALLS WILL BE GIVEN PRIORITY.
