At the Kettering Vets, we provide an emergency service for our clients at our practice on Polwell Lane. This means that your pet has access to our care day and night, at weekends and during the holidays. You will be seen by one of our own team, in a familiar environment, with no need to travel to Northampton for out-of-hours care.

What to do in an emergency

In the case of an emergency, please call our normal practice number: 01536 722 555.

You will be put through to one of our helpful team, who will arrange for you to bring your pet to the practice.

Please be aware that there is a surcharge for out-of-hours emergencies. We would be happy to provide an estimate for the costs of any examination, tests or treatments that your pet may need.

What happens if your pet needs to be hospitalised outside of normal working hours?

We are able to house and monitor pets outside of our normal opening hours.

The duty vet will determine how frequently assessments or treatments are needed according to your pet’s condition, (up to continuous monitoring if this is required).
