We’re on hand to help whenever your pet becomes ill

When something happens out of normal practice hours, every minute spent waiting for the surgery to reopen seems like a lifetime.

If your pet ever needs emergency treatment we have teamed up with Vetsnow a dedicated out of hours clinic in Eastbourne. Their team of emergency vets are available on evenings and weekends and Bank holidays when we are closed.

Simply phone 01323 301292 and Vetsnow will take your calls outside our normal opening hours and offer emergency assistance or free telephone advice. Even if it’s just to put your mind at ease, don’t hesitate to give them a call when we are closed.

Emergency pet care bills can be costly and a shock when not budgeted for. We recommend you take out insurance to spread the costs and make sure you can pay for the help your pet needs when it needs it.

We are available from 8 am to 7 pm every  week day and 8am until 1 pm on Saturdays.

Vetsnow is open from 7pm until 8am every weekday and from 1pm on Saturday until 8am on Monday mornings.
