Out Of Hours - Patient Care

Here at Rufford Veterinary Group, we have a dedicated team of vets and nurses assigned to caring for your pets. 

At Rufford Veterinary Group, we do not offer a 24 hour care service for hospitalised patients. We have dedicated inpatient nurses on site caring for inpatients from early morning until late at night, however there is not someone on the premises 24 hours a day. If a patient is admitted to the practice it will be left unsupervised for periods overnight, but outside inpatient nurse hours, it will be checked at intervals deemed necessary by the on-call veterinary surgeon.

With any significant change to your pets condition a member of our out of hours team will contact you on the number you provided on admittance.

For general inpatient care updates, if a member of our inpatient team has not contacted you already please phone after 10am.

If you have an emergency and your pet needs seeing by a vet, our 24hour emergency team can be contacted through our emergency telephone service, dial 01704 821 204 or 01704 214460 and listen to the recorded message. They do not reside at the practice.
