A member of staff will stay overnight with any animal that is too sick to go home or that needs continuous attention. There is a charge for this. We will discuss with you any concerns you or we have about sending an animal home.
In an emergency we prefer if you call us immediately. We will assess your call as efficiently and quickly as possible advising you to come immediately to the surgery or perhaps reassuring you with advice. It is always best to give us a ring to tell us you’re on your way but we know this isn’t always possible.
Ring our normal telephone number 01303 764190 to find out when we are open during a Bank Holiday period. A recorded message will inform you of our hours of opening and it will also tell you our 24 hour emergency number. We use VETS NOW services for all our out of hours enquiries,consultations and operations. They are based at Barton's Veterinary Hospital, New Dover Road, Canterbury and at Cinque Ports Veterinary Hospital, Ashford Road, Kingsnorth, Ashford. Their central office number for both clinics is 01227 470033. Please note their fees are independent of Hawkinge Veterinary Surgery and they reflect the nature of providing out of hours care. A standard consultation before 11pm is from £153 and after 11pm is from £191
