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

Outstanding vets. My dog (Ziggi) has had a multitude of health issues since a puppy and I have had to frequently move to different parts of the country over her lifetime. This means I have dealt with my fair share of vets, some amazing and some not so great. Petcare vets are among the best. They are professional, knowledgeable and caring. They listen to your concerns and perform thorough examinations. All the options are clearly explained. Couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you and keep up the awesome work.

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.

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. :)

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!
