Advice: Your own pet is sick or injured and you are not on benefits or low income
If your own pet is sick or injured it is your responsibility to take it to a vet. Look in your Yellow Pages to find your nearest one. All vets have details of 24-hour services on their messages if you telephone out of opening ours. Prviate vets will make house calls for an extra charge.
Please note that we cannot send an animal ambulance to an owned pet. There are private ambulances that you can pay. Refer to your local vet or Yellow Pages. Or ask a friend or neighbour with a car to help you.
If you are not on benefits or low income you cannot use charity vets and they will have to turn you away as they all have more benefit claims than they can cope with. It is therefore very important to insure your pet against illness or accident. Ask your vet to advise you on the various schemes available, many of which are very reasonably priced.
