During Surgery Hours

If you need us in an emergency during surgery hours please telephone the practice immediately and we will do our utmost to attend to you at the earliest opportunity.

Outside Surgery Hours

During the evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays we can be contacted via the usual practice number, where our recorded message will provide the contact number for the emergency vet, so have a pen and paper handy to jot down the number down.

Our Local Emergency Service

We share our emergency service responsibilities with Fitzalan House Vets in Littlehampton. You will either be seen in the familiar surroundings of PetCare Veterinary Clinic, or at Fitzalan House Veterinary Practice in Littlehampton, who will have full access to your pets’ medical records.

So you can be reassured you’ll never need to travel far.

We understand emergency situations are concerning so we call our clients with regular updates during periods of hospitalisation.

Our telephone advice is always complimentary but please be aware that additional fees will apply for emergency consultations and home visits when this is deemed necessary.
We are always available for you if you have any concerns

Jason Gallear

Friendly, sincere staff. Nicolas is an excellent vet. I would recommend him to all. He really does give excellent customer care to pets and owners alike. The practice even sent me a sympathy card after my last dog passed away. I highly recommend this practice.

Nicky Cremer

I've been with PetCare for more years than I care to remember. Always been excellent. Nick is a fantastic vet and I like the fact that he's very down to earth with me.

3 years ago the whole team were wonderfully sympathetic and caring when we had our gorgeous dog Murphy put to sleep. Everything was handled beautifully. We still feel huge gratitude.

Best veterinary practice you can go to! I had the most amazing service here from Maria! She really is an amazing vet. She is so smiley, friendly and just lovely she makes conditions easy to understand and will go the extra mile to help your pet. I now travel over an hour just to use this practice and to have my pup seen by Maria. I know I will have an amazing service and walk out of there smiling knowing everything is sorted and what needs to be done. Also with this practice there is no horrible corporate prices, they tell you exactly what is needed without putting extra unnecessary costs on top. If you are looking for a Vet look no further As Maria is the Vet you want to see.
