Home Visit Requirements

Here at Rufford Veterinary Group pre-arranged home visits are a service we offer only permitting circumstances.

We offer routine visits for breeders, kennels, charities, euthanasia and disabled clients. We ask for home visits to be pre-arranged where possible.

Visits for euthanasia can be difficult to predict and extremely hard to come to terms with. We will endeavour to arrange a home visit for you in this situation.  If unnecessary suffering is caused due to waiting for an available veterinary surgeon, your pet must be brought to the surgery.

 It must be understood that due to the unpredictable nature of veterinary practice, a visit may not be possible.

Procedures and tests that the Veterinary Surgeon can perform are very limited in the home. In the event of an emergency home visits are not suitable. Emergency equipment is available only at our surgeries.

Our vets have scheduled day to day responsibilities meaning a veterinary surgeon may not be available when requested.
If our veterinary surgeons are dealing with emergencies at the time of the request, pets will be asked to be seen at the surgery.

Please Note: Fees for home visits are payable on day of receipt.
Please consider checking with your insurance company if home visits are covered under your policy.

As stated by the RCVS it is the owner’s responsibility to arrange possible means of transport before an emergency arises. Please click link
