Spring Lodge Veterinary Group in Essex | 24hr Emergency Service

Emergencies and After Hours

Our ‘out of hours’ care is provided by Vets Now Ltd.

They are an independent company who provide the equivalent of a pet A&E department for local practices during the night and weekends.

We are lucky, as this service is run from our Witham Hospital so your animal can receive care 24 hours a day once it has been admitted to our Hospital.
