24 Hour Veterinary Care
Vets at Night
We are open from 8:00am – 7:00pm every week day, 8:30am – 4:00pm on Saturday and 9:00am – 12:30pm on Sunday. Outside of these hours our phones are answered by our Vets at Night team based at Pride Veterinary Centre in Derby allowing us to provide 24 Hour Veterinary Care. They are part of the Scarsdale Veterinary Group and have access to all of our clinical records.
The Vets at Night team work throughout the night to give dedicated care to emergency cases and hospitalised animals. The vets and nurses have further training and considerable experience of critical care, emergency surgery and medicine. They also have full access to the high standard facilities and equipment at Pride Veterinary Centre.
Our telephones will be answered throughout the night by experienced staff for advice or to arrange an appointment. Appointments may be booked by phoning at any time during the night. All pets will be seen at Pride Veterinary Centre in Derby. We have an ambulance service available for animal transportation to and from the hospital.
If you have an emergency during normal working hours then please come straight to Scarsdale Vets in Stapenhill, Burton-on-Trent and we will see you immediately.
For emergencies during the day or night, it would help us to prepare for your arrival if you phone to let us know what is wrong with your pet and when you will be arriving. We can also give you advice on first aid and how best to transport your pet. It is always best to bring your pet to us for treatment, rather than requesting a home or roadside visit, as we have all the facilities required for emergency care in the practice.
