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

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.

PetCare have looked after our animals since we moved to the area in 1996 and, in every case, have gone the extra mile to make sure our pets are as cared for as well as we would look after them ourselves. Several of our dogs get excited about going there!

Hugh Neve

Kind caring and personal service.

Linda Arrow

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.

Jane Ibbotson

Brilliant vets, so helpful and accommodating. We feel lucky to have found them and cannot recommend them enough.

Natalie Montagnani

We have been visiting this vet for the last ten years and never received anything but kindness and attention. Our elderly Brittany contracted an eye infection and despite all our panic Nick Smith and his excellent team saw us through some of the worst days of pet ownership. Purdey is now much better and although she has lost the sight in her right eye she is as mischievous as ever.

Thank you so much for your care of Chewie yesterday! I also want to thank Maria and Laura for supporting my four year old, she was so upset leaving him and they really took the time to talk to her and make her feel at ease! He is very happy at home now and back to his old self! Thank you so much to you all!

Pet Care have been looking after our Cocker puppy, Joe, since we got him six weeks ago and everyone has been a delight to work with. Joe came from a pretty awful breeder, just in it for the money, but the team at Pet Care have him bouncing around chasing anything that moves in the garden. A lovely team. :)
