Out-of-Hours Emergency Service

We provide a 24 hour emergency service on 01254 53622. Outside of our normal practice hours an answering machine will tell you how to contact the vet on duty.

Out-of-hours calls are handled by Oakmount Veterinary Centre, in Burnley (directions overleaf).

Oakmount Veterinary Centre is 10 miles away and takes just 15 to 20 minutes from our practice by car.

  • We pay Oakmount Veterinary Centre to take your calls and be on duty for you all year round. Telephone advice is free 24/7.
  • You pay Oakmount Veterinary Centre only when you need to use their services, and this is claimable on your pet’s health insurance (exclusions may apply).
