We offer 24 hour cover for companion animals and large animals (horses, farm animals etc) so you will always be able to contact a Veterinary Surgeon. After 6:00pm this is an emergency service only and lasts until the office opens again at 8:30am the following morning. We do ask for our clients cooperation, in that you contact us with any problems before 6.00pm weekdays and 10.00am Saturdays whenever possible, this will keep this as an Emergency Service only and greatly reduce the cost to you by avoiding an out of hours consultation or visit. If you do have an emergency after business hours you can contact us on our usual telephone number 01603 743725 and we will be more than happy to assist you. If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact our Reception
The Brooke phone line is diverted to Long Stratton on Saturday mornings for booking appointments and emergency services.
Out of normal hours we have both small animal and equine/farm animal veterinary surgeons and nurses providing emergency services for all our clients. This service is for emergencies only; please make all other enquires during normal working hours.
In the event of an emergency out with normal working hours, simply call the normal office number (Long Stratton 01508 530686, Brooke 01508 558228) and your call will automatically be taken by our medical answering service, who will take your details and a brief description of the problem. This information will then be immediately sent to the on-call vet by a paging system. If for any reason you do not hear from the on call vet within 15 minutes please contact the answering service again. This may be due to a delay within the telecom network or if the vet is in the middle of treating an emergency. They will endeavor to contact you as soon as possible.
