In case of emergency during clinic hours telephone Forest Veterinary Clinic on 01425 652221 (Fordingbridge) or 01425 461462 (Ringwood). Once alerted we can be ready to help when you arrive at the Clinic.
Outside clinic hours emergencies are dealt with by Vets Now, who have clinics in Wimborne, Salisbury, Southampton and Winchester. If you call outside normal clinic hours an answerphone message will give you the telephone number for Vets Now; you can call them directly on 01202 859933 and they will arrange for you to be seen at your nearest clinic (alternatively you can call your nearest clinic directly if you know which it is). You can find your nearest clinic on their website here, and the addresses along with a link to a map for each, are given below.
There is an open surgery at our Fordingbridge Clinic for urgent cases only at 10am on Sundays and Bank Holidays (with the exception of Christmas). Appointments are not necessary at these times. Outside these times please use our emergency service when the clinics are closed.
If you are not registered with us, we would recommend using your own vets emergency provisions where possible to ensure continuity of care for your pets. If you are away from home, or if you are unable to contact your own veterinary practice for any reason we will of course be more than happy to see your pet.
