Our out of hours service is staffed overnight and at weekends and Bank Holidays by Vets and Nurses who are skilled to deal with the sorts of emergencies that can occur from a collision with a car to a bee sting, from poisonings to giving birth or simply reassurance when your pet just doesn't seem very well.
When you ring any of our surgeries outside of normal hours you will speak to a dedicated out of hours answer service. They will ask you for all your details and then contact the duty Vet. One of the Veterinary team will then contact you and will advise you on the best care of your pet.
It maybe that you just need reassurance over a problem but it may well be that we will ask you to attend the clinic so that the vet can better assess the best treatment required.
Following your phone call with the duty Vet, if you have been asked to attend the clinic, you may be asked to meet the Vet at either Pelyn Vets, Lostwithiel PL22 0DZ or Penmellyn Vets, St Columb TR9 6BX depending on which Vet is on duty.
You may never need the full range of services that we offer but it is reassuring to know that if ever you do need emergency pet care in Cornwall outside normal surgery hours we are always there for you and your pets.
In the case of an emergency please contact us as normal on 01208 872254 and the duty vet will contact you as normal.
