* In recognition of how hard our truly dedicated staff have worked day and night over the last year under difficult circumstances, we would like to give them all the opportunity of being able to spend Christmas Day and Boxing Day with their families. Over this short period (from Christmas eve night to the morning on Monday 27th December), a dedicated accident and emergency service will be provided by Vets Now in Chippenham, so you will always be able to access veterinary care if needed urgently. If your pet is unwell when the practice is closed, please ring 01380 723687 as normal and you will be transferred to the appropriate emergency vet.
