Pet Emergencies

If your pet becomes ill outside your vet’s normal opening hours it can be a worrying time for you. Your vet, even if closed, is obliged to have another veterinary practice providing care for their usual clients. Please call them and listen carefully to their answerphone message.

If you have any difficulty getting through, Elizabeth Street Veterinary Clinic is open 24 hours a day for emergency care.
If you have not yet registered with a vet, they will also be able to see you:

Elizabeth Street Veterinary Clinic
55 Elizabeth St
London SW1W 9PP
020 7730 9102

Please phone ahead if possible.
