We have recently made some changes to our out of hours emergency care provision.
Here at Westmoor Vets we are committed to providing the highest levels of care for your pets and it is with this commitment in mind that we have made the following changes to our around the clock care provision.
In order to ensure that our daytime team can continue to provide the very best standards of care for your pet, we have partnered with our colleagues in MiNightVet to assist our team in providing excellent care for your pet should you have an emergency outside of our normal opening hours.
The new partnership will allow the Westmoor team to continue to provide excellent daytime services, and continue to provide on-site care with a qualified veterinary nurse on site at all times to care for any hospitalised patients. Should any complications occur, a vet is available to assist them.
Find out more on who to contact in an emergency, on our Emergencies page.
The MiNightVet Plymouth service operates from one of our sister practices (Woodlands Veterinary Hospital) and the friendly, caring, MiNightVet team (all of whom have chosen to focus their careers on emergency and critical care) are well equipped to deal with any small animal emergency.
As an emergency service clinic, MiNightVet are able to stock specialised emergency drugs and equipment – including the specific antidotes required to manage cases of poisoning and anti-venom for use in adder bites. They also have a vet and nurses present in the building throughout the night & weekend to provide the highest levels of care (and plenty of cuddles) to the sickest patients and those pets that need to be hospitalised.
Our colleagues at MiNightVet have access to your pet’s clinical records and they work closely with us to deliver the continuity of care that your pet deserves. They are also able to provide free telephone advice should you ever become concerned about your pet out of hours, and can offer advice on how to safely transport your pet to the emergency clinic should you need to do so.
The MiNightVet Team
Kendall Sibbing, an experienced emergency vet who leads the MiNightVet Plymouth team, has developed the out of hours provision at Woodlands over several years.
Kendall is joined by veterinary surgeons Tanja – who has a particular interest in exotics and small furries – and Chloe. Nurses Samantha, Fiona and Jessica who all have experience in one to one critical care, are on hand to assist the vet team.
