Need veterinary advice? Here are some services you can call on around the clock.
Vetfone is a 24-hour service, which works like an NHS Direct for pets, and anyone can call.
It is staffed exclusively by UK-qualified veterinary nurses with years of experience.
You can pay upfront or have the call charged to your bill, and the cost is typically less than an initial consultation.
Call using the following numbers, and a donation will be made to the RSPCA.
- Call 01728 727 673 to pay a fixed fee of £12.50.
This is fixed regardless of when the call is made and its duration. We will receive £1 for each call made to this number.
- Or call 09065 00 55 00 to pay £1.50 per minute.
An average call is about £6-10, and we will receive a proportion.
