If you are a client of Coombefield Veterinary Hospital, the usual process out of hours has not changed.
If you have not visited us before, please alert the team of your arrival using the intercom outside the door. Your pet will then be assessed by our veterinary surgeon when you arrive and appropriate treatment will be given.
The emergency clinic operates on a triage basis. This means that in the most serious cases, where life-saving treatment may be needed, pets may be seen before other less critical cases. If the veterinary surgeon is already with another patient at the time of arrival, your pet will be triaged by our veterinary nurse.
Our night team are on-site all night, and if your pet has to stay with us you can be rest assured that they will be closely monitored and well looked after. Provided your pet is well enough, you will then be able to take them to see your own daytime vet for follow up treatment the next morning.
