Out of Hours Emergencies

dog at Kinfauns Vets

If you have an emergency outside of our normal working hours, our clients have access to the Vets Now Emergency Service at Colchester.

They provide a dedicated team of veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses who will be able to provide you with veterinary attention or advice.

We strongly advise you to telephone them before going, as their staff will then be able to prepare for your arrival, and ensure you receive the quickest and most appropriate attention.
If your animal is on any medication it often is useful to take this along with you.
