Out of Hours

What to do in case of an emergency

We are dedicated to provide the best possible care for your beloved Pets 

Grove Veterinary Centre has always provided our own out-of-hours service, however the practices that have collaborated to provide this service in recent times, has been unable to recruit enough vets to staff this service ongoing. We write to inform you that from the 31st March 2022 overnight on-call services will be provided by our partners, Carnforth Pet Care.

This service has vets and nurses on-site when required as appropriate to the level of care required for the individual patient who are specially trained in emergency and critical care.

Our ability to provide care to our hospitalised patients will not be affected by these changes. Animals admitted during the working day will still be cared for by our dedicated team of vets and nurses.

To try and reduce the impact of these changes to you and your pets we will be extending our consulting times in the evenings and on Saturday’s. We always have emergency appointments available during our normal opening hours.

There is no change of data controller, which means your data stays within the same group, so you don’t need to do anything. You can rest assured there will be no disruption to your pet’s care.

We thank you for your continued support and custom and look forward to seeing you and your pet in practice very soon.

Kind Regards,

All the team at Grove Veterinary Centre
