Out-of-Hours 

Out-of-hours veterinary fees are typically higher than daytime fees. This is due to the increased costs of providing a dedicated team, who work at nights, on weekends and bank holidays, trained and skilled in dealing with accidents and emergencies.

Once the veterinary surgeon has examined your pet, they will discuss with you any tests that may need to be run and any treatment that needs to be given. At this point, it’s also likely you will be given an estimate of the cost of any treatment.

If you have pet insurance, all or some of the costs you incur may be reimbursed. However, insurance policies vary considerably so you should check your policy to see what it covers and what excesses apply.
