Who Are We?
Emergency VetCare is a
dedicated Out-of-Hours veterinary service
covering Poole, Bournemouth and SE Dorset
Wishing you a Very Happy and Healthy Christmas and New Year!
Christmas can be a busy and chaotic time with large quantities of food and presents left unattended. Curious pets, particularly dogs, may investigate and eat gifts (including edible ones) left under the tree, food in the kitchen or chew on plants decorating the house.If you are worried your pet has eaten anything toxic or dangerous please contact us as soon as possible
We are open every night, every weekend and public holiday when your usual veterinary surgery is closed and are always here to care for your pet if they have an accident or become unwell.
Our team of experienced vets and nurses is on site at all times to give you advice on the phone or to treat your pet at the clinic. We are all pet owners ourselves so understand that pets are members of the family, and treat them as if they were our own.
For most of our patients, it is best to be examined and treated at the surgery; however, we can arrange for a house visit to be made where that is more appropriate.
If your pet has to stay with us for ongoing monitoring and care, we can assure you that they will never be left alone in the clinic.
Emergency VetCare shares the premises with Walton Lodge Veterinary Group, but is independent of it. As such, in the morning, your pet’s records will be sent to your own vet so they will know what has happened and can continue with their treatment. If your pet has had to be admitted, so long as they are able to travel, they will also be returned to their usual practice for ongoing care.
