Elands Veterinary Clinic provide emergency cover at the Dunton Green branch 8.30am-6pm Monday to Friday, and 8.30am-12.30pm on Saturdays.
During these hours there is a vet on-site at all times.
The Kemsing branch is currently closed, until further notice, so all patients will be directed to the Dunton Green branch.
Out of hours statement
We are continually reviewing our patient care protocols, and as such have made the decision that we will no longer be able to hospitalise patients overnight from 3rd July 2023.
We are fortunate to have an excellent out-of-hours care provider so close by at Pennards in Sevenoaks, who can provide monitoring and treatment for patients throughout the night.
As many of you may be aware, we already recommend that very ill or unstable animals are transferred there to receive the best care overnight, and we feel that this treatment should be extended to all our inpatients.
Any pets requiring overnight hospitalisation will need to be transferred to Pennards in the evening, or if appropriate we may offer you the option to take them home for the night. They will then return to us for ongoing care in the morning, unless they are not stable enough to transfer.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
All emergencies outside our normal opening hours are attended to by the Sevenoaks Veterinary Emergency Service. This service is based locally at the Pennard Veterinary Group's surgery in Eardley Road, Sevenoaks.
This means that in an emergency, our clients never have far to travel. The emergency service is staffed by vets and nurses experienced in emergency medicine and surgery.
Please note that an emergency consultation will attract an out of hour surcharge and you may like to request an estimate of fees from the duty vet.
