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).

Vets Now is the pet equivalent of an accident and emergency service, dedicated to providing pets with access to an emergency vet service out of hours.  It’s all they do. With their local practices based at Wimborne and Salisbury, their vets and vet nurses are specially trained to deal with pet emergencies.  Because they don’t work during the day, they’ll be up and ready to see your pet at the time you need them.

Vets Now has been providing dedicated out-of-hours emergency pet care across the UK for more than 20 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/.

Small Animal Appointments:

We are open Monday – Friday 8:30AM – 6:00PM, Saturday 8.30AM – 12PM (excluding bank holidays).
