Out Of Hours

Emergency Pet Healthcare With A Personal Touch — Our Out Of Hours Service

At Orchard House our service is personal. We pride ourselves on that. If you need us in an emergency, you will see our own vets in our own surgery, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

24 Hour Emergency Service Helpline…

Here’s what happens next…

  • Your call will be answered by a dedicated Orchard House emergency answering service.
  • The telephonist will record your contact details and the nature of the problem.
  • This information will be passed on to the duty vet.
  • The vet will contact you directly as soon as is possible either to give advice or to arrange to see the patient, when necessary.
  • Emergencies are usually dealt with at one of our clinics where the full range of diagnostic and treatment options is available.
