Our Out of Hours emergency service is now provided by Forest Veterinary Centre to ensure you receive high standards of care 24/7

Providing the best care to our clients in Essex at all times is our priority. We’ve recently reviewed our methods for providing care for your pet out of hours and after careful consideration, we’ve decided to partner with Forest Veterinary Centre. They specialise in providing dedicated emergency care during nights, weekends and bank holidays.

We believe that working with Forest Veterinary Centre allows us to raise the quality of service that we provide to you and your pet. The clinic is fully staffed by vets and nurses who only work out of hours. They are fresh and ready to deal with emergencies at night, at weekends and on public holidays.

Think of them as the pet equivalent of the Accident and Emergency department of a hospital.

Using the Forest Veterinary Centre service is really easy.

If you require out-of-hours assistance, call us on 020 8505 1435 and listen to the message which will give you the Forest Veterinary Centre emergency contact number.

When you call them, you will be given a number for a pager service to contact the out-of-hours team.
