Out of hours

Outside of our usual opening hours, if you need an Out of Hours Vet in Claygate, our own emergency & critical care team at North Surrey Emergency Vets (NSVE) are less than 4 miles away in East Molesey.

You can call our usual number above or, 0208 783 2850


Emergency Home Visits

Out of hours, NSVE do not offer home visits due to the volume and intensive care needs of the patients in their care. If you are unable to transport your pet yourself, we recommend asking a friend, neighbour, or using a pet taxi service.

If you have been advised to bring your pet to our vet practice in Claygate during our regular opening hours, and you are unable to transport your pet yourself, we will endeavour to send one of our usual Claygate veterinary surgeons to visit your pet at home. Please note, emergencies in clinic must take priority in these cases so it is always best to bring your pet to us.


24/7 pet care from people you can trust

At Claygate Vets, we understand that pets can become ill or injured anytime of the day or night. We also understand that when your pet is unwell, it’s a huge worry for you, and you want to know they will be cared for by people you can trust.

That’s why we felt it was so important to create our own 24/7 emergency pet care service. NSVE in East Molesey is run entirely by us and our sister practices, not an outside agency, so you can rest reassured that your pet will be in good hands. This surgery is always supervised by our dedicated and highly trained out of hours vets and critical care nurses, who will give your pet the best possible care and attention, whatever the hour. Here, you will receive the same level of empathy and care as you do at Claygate Vets.
