We also work with Hart Veterinary Centre in Bicester, that supports us with patients that require overnight care. Hart Vets also has a dedicated team of night vets and nurses meaning cases admitted out of hours benefit from the same continuous high standard of care as they would during the day.

We continue to provide overnight care for any inpatients that are already with us where it is deemed appropriate so that they do not have to be moved between practices. If our vets feel that it is in the pet’s best interests to be transferred overnight to Hart Vets for the purpose of intensive monitoring, the vet will discuss this with you in person and go through their recommendation. We do not have vets or nurses on site overnight however, we do have a system in place whereby late night checks are carried out for any inpatients and our clinical team are back on site early the next morning. If your pet is transferred to Hart Vets overnight for intensive monitoring, they will typically be transferred back to us the following morning. Transfers are usually carried out between the practices by you as the owner as long as your pet is stable enough.
