Receive exceptional care, day or night, at our pioneering 24-hour emergency pet care centres.
We never know when our pets might need emergency care, which is why we opened our first 24-hour emergency centre back in 1991.
We’ve now grown a network of nearly two dozen 24-hour centres around the country, giving you peace of mind that we’ll always be there in an emergency.
What services do 24-hour centres provide?
At our 24-hour centres, dedicated day and night teams provide state-of-the-art care for all conditions and offer round the clock monitoring.
All our centres have diagnostic and surgical capabilities, access to blood products for transfusions and much more.
Where’s my nearest Medivet 24-hour centre?
You can find your nearest 24-hour centre here.
Will they know my pet’s history?
Thanks to our integrated computer system, your pet’s records can be easily accessed from whichever Medivet practice you choose to visit. This lets our out-of-hours teams provide an unrivalled continuity of care straight away.
Why aren’t all your practices open 24 hours?
By focusing our 24-hour service into our emergency practices, we can pool our resources to provide you with access to highly advanced equipment and specially trained vets and nurses throughout the UK.
What do I do in an emergency?
Should your pet ever require emergency treatment, please call your nearest 24-hr centre to let them know you’re on your way. Alternatively, call your local Medivet practice to be directed to their out-of-hours service.
If your pet’s bleeding, apply pressure or wrap the affected area. If your pet has eaten something toxic, let us know what you think it may be, and if possible bring a sample of the item with you. Remember to also bring any pet medication with you.
