Dear Clients of the Vet Clinic,

This is to inform you that we are now at the point in the practice where we need to make further changes to the way we provide our out of hours emergency service. In December we introduced Hampden Veterinary Hospital based in Aylesbury.  This was due to an increase of pets during Covid and Brexit which has proven very difficult to recruit Veterinary Surgeons and we need to look after the wellbeing of our current staff.

Your pets are extremely important to us, and we’ve always strived to ensure they have access to the best veterinary care throughout the day and night.  So that we can continue to provide the very best care during the day when you need us most, we have partnered with Hampden Veterinary Hospital, a dedicated pet emergency service that provides expert emergency care when we are closed.

We will however now need to suspend the offer of providing our own in-house nursing of your animal if he /she has to stay overnight. If for any reason your pet needs to stay overnight for medication or treatment then they will now need to be transferred to Hampden Vets for overnight care.

This partnership has meant we can deliver an enhanced service for our clients and pets during the day.

Our new opening hours are:

Monday till Friday 8am till 7pm

Saturday 8.30am till 5 pm

Sunday, emergencies only


During the time that we are closed, you can contact Hampden on the details below.

We hope that going forward you will rest assured that your animal’s welfare is at the centre practice and that we will always strive to provide the best care!
