About Vets Now
Vets Now are nationwide network of out-of-hours pet emergency clinics that are open through the night, at weekends and on bank holidays. They’re ready and waiting to provide expert, pet emergency care when your regular vet is closed.
Their pet emergency clinics are the pet equivalent of A&E and their purpose is to give you and your pet the care and support you deserve, at the time you need it most, whether it’s four in the morning or in the middle of Christmas Day.
If you are needing emergency treatment or advice during normal daytime hours you can still contact the usual Knutsford Vets number and we’ll be able to give your pet the treatment they need.
If you need help out-of-hours — during the night, at the weekend or on a bank holiday call one of the clinics above.

What to expect

If you have pet insurance, take your policy details. All or some of the cost of treatment, and any consultation fee, may be reimbursed by your policy. Please be aware that cover varies considerably so you should check what is covered and what excesses apply.
I've been to the vets with my pup twice in as many days. I've been fit in despite them being busy and have received excellent thorough care for my pup and myself both times. They have taken the time to thoroughly explain all treatment options and payment and made us feel very confident that our boy is in the best hands. Would 100% recommend . They have made a stressful situation easier
As a first time dog owner, we have felt so reassured and safe in the knowledge that our puppy is well cared for by Knutsford Veterinary Surgery. No matter how busy the schedule they've always been able to fit us in, and been very thorough in the appointments. Shout out to the front desk team too, really lovely manner and have been extremely helpful when I've phoned with enquiries. So big thank you from me (and Zeki)!
