Always phone the surgery first: the vet may be elsewhere or operating and if he can be warned of your emergency he can prepare.

If the surgery is CLOSED there will be a recorded message telling you how to contact the duty vet on his mobile phone (this applies to any locum if the vet is on holiday). Outside normal hours duties are shared between Ron Lowe and the vets at Forest House Veterinary Surgery, York Road, Knaresborough. The message will tell you whom to contact.

It is always best to get your pet to the surgery by arrangement with the duty vet. Serious emergencies need the facilities at the surgery as soon as possible.

What is an emergency?

If you are doubt whether your pet's problem is an emergency, please telephone for advice. We will do our best to help your pet as soon as possible.

Pet Insurance

As from January 2005 it is not permitted to offer advice regarding insurance unless one is licensed by the Financial Services Authority. Ashleigh Vet Clinic is not planning to be licensed for this and so information regarding pet insurance is no longer available on this website.
