We prefer that animals are brought to the surgery for treatment. There may not be a vet available to visit when you require it and in any case better facilities and more staff are on hand at the Hospital to enable immediate treatment to be undertaken. This is particularly true for road traffic accident victims where access to life saving procedures are only to be found at the Hospital. The nurses will be able to give advice as to the best way to handle and transport the injured animal. However, we do appreciate, that in certain circumstances, house calls are necessary and will be made. The reception staff will be able to advise when this is necessary.
