Vets Now

Your pet emergency service

Pet emergencies can happen at any time – including when your regular vet is closed. Vets Now is based in Blaise providing out-of-hours and emergency pet care for Birmingham and the surrounding area.

Vets Now have been providing emergency pet care across the UK for over 20 years and treat over 200,000 pets annually from 60 sites which are open throughout the night, during the weekend and on bank holidays. 

Vets Now are the pet equivalent of A&E and their purpose is to give you and your pet the care and support you deserve, at the time you need it most, whether it’s four in the morning or in the middle of Sunday lunch.

Available when you need us most. 

As part of the IVC Evidensia network, Vets Now will work alongside the Blaise daytime referral teams to ensure a seamless 24/7 veterinary service.

What to do in an emergency

If you are needing emergency treatment or advice during normal daytime hours, call your regular vet first to find out what arrangements they have in place for you and your pet. 

If you need help out-of-hours – during the night (between 6pm and 8.30am), at the weekend (from 12pm Saturday) or on a bank holiday, please call us on 0121 238 2001

When you call us, we’ll provide advice over the phone and advise whether you need to bring your pet in for immediate treatment. 

If you have pet insurance, bring your policy details. All or some of the cost of treatment, and any consultation fee, may be reimbursed by your policy. Please be aware that cover varies considerably so you should check what is covered and what excesses apply.

We treat all pets, regardless of which daytime clinic you use and will make sure that all case notes are transferred back to your practice during their working hours
