Christmas & New Year Opening Times and Emergency Pet Care

Amy Holloway

With Christmas and New Year celebrations just around the corner, we want you to know that your pet will never be without expert veterinary care, thanks to our 24/7 emergency pet care service in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. See when we’re open over Christmas & New Year below.

Christmas is typically a busy time for many people, with long lists of things to sort, presents to buy, wrapping to do, food to cook… This time of year can be so much fun for our pets too, but it can also be filled with hazards. With an abundance of chocolate, mince pies, Christmas cake, turkey bones and other tempting treats in the home, we tend to see a lot more cases of accidental toxic food poisoning in pets around Christmas time.


What to do if you’re worried your pet has eaten something harmful:

  1. Stay calm
  2. Check our online symptom guide which has a section for poisons
  3. Call us on 01527 889810 for advice
  4. Keep the wrapper and a note of when you think the food has been eaten and how much
  5. Don’t try to make your pet sick unless a Vet instructs you to

Most pets love company too, and with the busyness of the festive period already in full swing, lots of pets will be home alone. Read our top tips on how to keep your pet happy this Christmas.


Emergency Pet Care 24/7

Our dedicated veterinary teams will be at our three practices during normal opening hours, and when our doors close for the day, our Emergency Pet Care Service kicks in.

Calling our normal practice phone numbers out of hours will get you through to our veterinary team, who will offer you advice over the phone, and if your pet needs to be seen quickly, you will be asked to come to our Bromsgrove vet practice.
