Veterinary nursing care for any inpatients

Overnight Care Information for Owners

At the Berry House surgery in Hitchin we are able to provide veterinary nursing care for any inpatients from 7.30am – 10pm Monday to Friday and from 8am – 5pm on Saturdays.

The practice is unmanned between 10pm and 7:30am weekdays. At the weekend from 5pm on Saturday until 7:30am on Monday the practice is unmanned with checks being carried out on inpatients by the duty vet as required. *

Last checks on inpatients are done by the duty nurse before they leave at 10pm and any concerns passed on to the vet on duty.

If there are any concerns regarding the suitability of your animal to be left at the practice overnight the vet in charge will discuss transferring them to our dedicated Out Of Hours provider  Vets Now at Barton Le Clay for 24 hour care by Emergency and Critical Care expert vets and nurses.

*will alter if Bank Holidays please see current advice.
