Hearing that your pet needs to stay at the veterinary practice can be worrying, especially as your pet is usually with you all of the time. We would like to reassure you that your pet will receive the best possible care while he or she is staying with us.
At Castle Vets there are experienced, qualified vets and nurses on the premises 24 hours a day, every day of the year. You can rest assured that throughout their stay, in addition to receiving their required treatment, medication and exercise, your pet will also receive plenty of fuss, love and attention from the nursing team who will be caring for their individual needs and ensuring that they are as comfortable and happy as possible while they are with us.
Who Will Be Looking After My Pet When Castle Vets is Closed?
The Castle Vets team hand over to Vets Now Emergencies at 7pm on a weekday evening and 1:30pm on Saturdays. Your pet’s vet will discuss his or her particular needs and the treatment or medication they will require with the Vets Now vet, ensuring that their care is continuous. In addition to giving the necessary medications, treatments and exercise, the Vets Now vets and nurses also offer the same level of attention and care that the Castle Vets team would give your pet. Your pet will be regularly monitored and examined as necessary and you will be notified immediately of any change in his or her condition, should it arise.
