Next month The London Animal Hospital will open it’s doors in Camberwell. Not only is this going to be a brand new state of the art hospital but it will operate round-the-clock on a 24 hours basis.
The London Animal Hospital is the dream of David Cuffe of well-known Clapham Vets Practice, Cuffe Vets. Ever since we moved to London five years ago, Cuffe Vets has been our vets and have been fantastic. However when we’ve needed emergency after-hour care, up until now we’ve had to go to the 24 hour Vets in Westminster or Streatham. Knowing that should the need arise (and paws crossed it doesn’t), we will now be able to go to a 24 Hour Vets in South London that is an extension of Cuffe Vets at any time day or night is really reassuring.
But it’s not only about after-hours emergency care. The London Animal Hospital will offer extended consulting hours to accommodate for people’s busy schedules.
As David Cuffe says “Our pets don’t keep regular office hours so why should we. For years I have watched time get in the way. I’ve seen clients rush in at 8:45 in the morning, hoping to be seen immediately so they can still make it to work, or ring in at 6:45 to cancel the last appointment because their train is delayed or the cat has suddenly vanished. On Saturdays, they encounter a skeleton service with some cases inevitably delayed until Monday. Phones that just ring and ring and overstretched, out-of-hours services that tell people to wait to see their own vet in the morning.”
Well not any more! The London Animal Hospital will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with consultations available from 7am to 9pm daily and then a team on-call until the morning.
As well as regular veterinary care, the hospital will also offer specialist services such as Cardiology, Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Services, Dentistry, Maxillofacial Surgery and Emergency & Critical Care.
The London Animal Hospital at Kenbury Works on Coldharbour Lane, in Camberwell will open on 10 April, 2017. You can pre-register on the website and if you do, consultations are half-price for the first three months. You could also be in with the chance to win a Golden Ticket £10,000 voucher to pay for your pet’s care throughout their life!
