Within Normal Hours Emergency Treatment
If your pet has a problem during our normal surgery hours, please telephone the practice immediately and we will ensure that you are offered an appointment on a priority basis. Please make it clear to us that the matter is not routine and we will do our best to attend to you as soon as possible.
Out of Hours Emergency Treatment
Outside of our normal opening times we have a designated emergency service. Vets Now based at The Holcot Centre, Moulton, Northampton, NN3 7RR Tel: 01604635835
We know your pet can become ill or suffer accidents at any time. To make sure you have access to high quality care at night, weekends and bank holidays, we have chosen to partner with Vets Now.
The team at Vets Now are always there when we are closed, so you can rest assured that you and your pet will have a vet and nurse on hand, whether it's four in the morning or half-way through Christmas.Their fully qualified staff will provide free advice over the phone and advise whether or not you need to take your pet into their clinic for immediate treatment. Please don't hesitate to call them if you are at all concerned.
By using Vets Now to cover our Out of Hours emergencies it enables our vets and nurses to get a good night's rest overnight and at weekends so we can continue providing the high quality care during the day that we provide ourselves.
We have not extended our opening hours here at Staverton, however we will be offering longer consulting times within our opening hours.
Abington Park Vets take over from us outside of these hours. But rest assured; any pets that are receiving inpatient treatment from us at the time Vets Now take over can remain in our care at our Oundle practice, with a vet and nurse on duty. Referral for intensive or specialist care at Vets Now is available if your pet requires it, or if you specifically request it.
It is always best to call us first as we will either be there to answer your call, or will have an answer machine message with Vets Now details for you. They can give you advice over the phone and arrange immediate appointments to see them if required.
Please be aware that because of the nature of Out of Hours emergencies, a night-time or weekend appointment will be more expensive than seeing a vet during usual opening hours. Vets Now will discuss this with you at the time of appointment and before commencing any treatment.
