Emergency Animal Care

In case of emergency, please contact us immediately.

In any emergency, seconds count. Luckily we are on hand, offering emergency care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Normal opening hours:

If you have a dog emergency, or cat emergency, or if any of your pets are in need of emergency animal care during regular Cara Vet Group hours, we will handle your pet’s treatment immediately. Even during opening hours, please contact us to let us know you are on your way with an emergency as it will help us be prepared for your arrival.

Outside normal hours:

Outside of our opening hours please contact us as normal, where you will hear details of the Out-Of-Hours-Vet on the answering machine. Once you call them and tell them about your animal emergency, an Out-Of-Hours-Vet will ring you back within a short space of time and you will be instructed accordingly.

There will be an additional charge on top of the normal consultation price for out-of-hours treatment.
