Who provides our emergency service?

At night in an emergency situation when we are closed, we have chosen to use the Abingdon Veterinary Emergency Treatment Service (AVETS), an out-of-hours emergency provider working out of the Abivale Veterinary Hospital, The Vineyard, 2 minutes down the road in the centre of Abingdon. Your pet will see a vet with a special interest in emergency and critical care who works nights only. They will also receive excellent hospital care with a dedicated team of night-nurses.

In an emergency, do I call you or the emergency service provider?

In an emergency, when we are closed, just ring our usual number and you will be directed to the number for AVETS. Patient histories will be sent to us first thing the next morning so we will be fully aware of what has happened overnight and to allow, if necessary, transfer to Boundary Vets that morning.

During the day you will be able to see our existing vets:

Dani, Jamie, Lucy, Amanda, Karin, Nikkie and Annika who you know well. We will still always strive to ensure you see the same vet whenever you come in.
