Emergencies and First Aid

We class all of the following list as emergencies;

Excessive bleeding from wounds or any body opening
Difficulty breathing
Inability to pass urine
Constant retching
Sudden bloating of the abdomen
Suspected poisoning
Fits lasting any longer than a few minutes
Broken limbs
Heat stroke
Electric shock
Inability to pass a foetus after a reasonable time straining

If the breathing is impaired try to get the airway free, extend the neck. If there is haemorrhage apply pressure to any bleeding point. In all cases get to the surgery as soon as possible.

If possible phone us first so that we are expecting you but do not waste valuable time trying to pre-warn us.

We will treat as urgent;

Any fresh wounding especially if bleeding
Severe nose bleeds
Any sudden ear trouble
Persistent vomiting
Any road accident
Any recent dog fight or dog attack of small dog, cat or rabbit
Injuries caused by running onto sticks thrown during play

Our telephone number at all times is 01233 661099. If we are closed a recorded message will give you number for Vets Now, Kingsnorth Ashford Kent, which is 01233 879913.

If your pet gets lost log on to our article on Microchipping where you will find relevant links.

Our veterinarians are all experienced general practitioners with a broad knowledge and
understanding of animal health, illness and injury.

Dear Alan

Just a note to say a huge thank you for taking care of Olli and for sparing me a long and agonising wait, it was very much appreciated.

Dear Aaron

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving my cat Beau.

He is a picture, although I can’t repay you I hope you like this gift.

I would like to thank Allan and all his staff for the kind care and consideration in looking after my Molley during and on the last few days of her little life.

Thank you so much
