24 Hour Emergency Vets in Sheffield & Barnsley

24 hour emergency vets in Sheffield & Barnsley. We are here for your pet.

If your best friend ever injures themselves or falls ill unexpectedly, it is understandably a worrying time for you. However, as a member of the Abbey Vet family, we are always here to help you.

Our emergency vet service is available 365 days a year and it is provided by our main branch, the Barnsley Centre. This means that in an emergency, you can rest assured that your pet will be cared for in familiar surroundings by a team who already know them and have access to their medical records. We recognise that driving for miles to an unknown outsourced ‘emergency clinic’ is likely to only add to the anxiety of the situation, and so are passionate about offering an out-of-hours service in our own premises.

For professional advice, or more information on this service please call 01226 242217.

House Calls and Collections

If you are unable to travel to the practice, or if your pet is too ill to be moved safely, one of our four ambulances can collect you from home and deliver you and your pet to the surgery if necessary. House calls and collections do depend on availability but we will always do our best to accommodate your requirements, especially if the situation is urgent.

After caring for our clients and their pets for the last 45 years with full 24hour Emergency Care – we find we are no longer in a position to be able to carry on providing a full night service.

The toll on our Abbey Team, Vets, Nurses and Receptionists during this horrific 12 months of Covid has been extreme to say the least.

We will continue to provide full 24 hour Veterinary and Nursing care to Hospitalised pets and attend to emergencies during our opening hours.

However, we can no longer be on call for any new emergencies which may come in after our normal working surgery hours.
It saddens us greatly and we sincerely regret this decision but currently, we are unable to continue to provide this service.

From now on at night 'VETS NOW' in Sheffield and Doncaster will be responsible for assisting you with any emergency, essential queries or urgent medical needs you have for your pet. When we are closed our telephone answering machine will provide this number.
They are a night service only and do not open during the day.

We will still be responsible for handling your pet-related Emergencies between:

8am and 8 pm Monday to Friday
8am until 5pm Saturdays and Sundays.
8am until 5pm on Bank Holidays

As normal, routine booked appointments on Weekends and Bank Holidays are at our standard fees.
