What to do in an Emergency

West Bar Vets

West Bar Veterinary Hospital is one of only two practices in the Banbury area that provides a 24 hour service for sick and injured pets every day of the year.

All emergencies are seen at our Veterinary Hospital at 19 West Bar Street, Banbury. West Bar Veterinary Hospital is staff on site and available 24 hours a day all year round.

Outside normal surgery hours you will need to contact our duty veterinary team on 01295 262332 to be seen at an emergency appointment. Please do not just turn up without contacting the on call team first.

Registered Clients

As a registered client you have the confidence in knowing that your pet will be seen by one of our regular vets who will be able to access all your pets records even if you normally visit one of our branches

Clients Not Registered with West Bar Veterinary Hospital

We provide an out of hours emergency service for clients of other local practices and for clients who are not registered with us.

If you are not a registered client of our practice please note that we do not have access to any records you may have at your registered practice. We are also unable to update you on the condition of a pet being treated as an inpatient at your usual practice or discuss any treatment being given by your current vet in detail.

We do not offer any discount if you are a member of any health plan operated by your own practice including ‘surgical guarantees’ or ‘consultation discounts’. All fees are charged at the usual rates and requirement payment at the time.

Please ensure that you have a means of payment at the time you see the duty vet. If your pet is insured and you wish to claim back your fees from your insurer please bring your insurance details ( certificates and schedules) with you.

Our out of hours callout and initial consultation fees vary depending on the time of your visit to us. The duty vet will advise you further on costs.

We do not open for regular surgeries on Sundays and Bank Holidays. However we have emergency appointments available at set times at the Hospital that do not attract an out-of-hours callout. In all cases please contact the duty vet to arrange an appointment.

Easy Access and Parking

If you are travelling by car you may be able to park on West Bar right outside the practice. However If all these spaces are full, continue travelling along West Bar Street and turn left into Beargarden Road. After approximately 50 metres turn left again into a small lane (signposted Cork Lane(Private Road)). A little way along this lane you will find the our large car park at the back of our Hospital.
