24 hour emergency cover at Jonathan Wood
We continue to provide our own out of hours cover, meaning you can always be seen by one of our own veterinary team in our own surgery whenever needed. This is fast becoming uncommon, with most practices using external out of hours providers, meaning clients sometimes travelling over 30 minutes to an unfamiliar surgery.
