Overnight hospitalisation of in-patients

Occasionally, it may be necessary for your pet to stay in the practice overnight or over the weekend due to his/her condition.

Deveron Vets do not have a vet or nurse permanently on the premises during the hours of 7.00pm and 8.00am on weekdays and between Saturday, 11.00am and Monday 8.0am.

For those patients that are required to stay in the practice during these hours, the number of times the vet will check on that in-patient is determined by that pet’s condition. Each case is treated on an individual basis.

You can be assured that should a patient require it, intensive care will be given during these hours.

It will not be possible to contact the vet directly during these hours as the main surgery number is diverted for emergency calls only, but always leave a contact telephone number should the vet need to contact you during that time.
