Bay Vet Group’s out of hours emergency work is handled by MiNightVet based at Dart Vale Vets in Totnes and EVES based at Exeter St Davids Veterinary Clinic soon to be re-branded MiNightVet.  These clinics are staffed by their own dedicated team and will be working on our behalf to deliver emergency care to your pet.  The big advantage to this is that there will be a vet and nurse dedicated on site all night to attend to the care of your animal.  Due to the safety of staff it is no longer possible to offer out of hours home visits and all animals will need to be transported to the MiNightVet clinics for treatment.

The MiNightVet service will run from 08.00pm till 8.00am Monday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 7.00pm  until 8.00am. During these times all calls to our normal number will be redirected to the MiNightVet service where you will have the option to attend the Exeter or Totnes Clinic.  Before 11pm the consultation costs £99 and afterwards it is £170 with any treatments in addition to this.  Payment for treatment will need to be made at the time of the consultation.

In an emergency please phone your local surgery and you will be transferred to the on call vet. The emergency vet will arrange to meet you to examine and treat your pet.

Our Paignton surgery is open all day on Saturday and Sunday so any problems that occur can be seen during our regular opening times.

The move to introduce a dedicated Out of Hours service, was a decision made jointly by our directors, in order to ensure your pets receive only the highest standard of care 24 hours a day.  This has enabled us to be open for longer and we will now be offering an appointment system  in some branches until 8pm Mondays to Fridays.  Our Dawlish surgery will be open from 8am until 8pm Monday to Friday. Our surgeries will continue to be open at the weekend and in the event of an emergency during the weekend days our on call emergency team will be available as they are now. The dedicated MiNightVet service is only for night time emergencies and we will continue to provide a day time service.

If your pet needs our local emergency vet service call 01626 862020. The emergency vet may offer advice over the phone or request to see your pet. Please note that there is an extra out of hours charge during unsocial hours. Our emergency vet service is only available to registered clients.

We will continue to deliver all our in-patient care as usual with a nurse and vet assigned to in-patient checks. In the rare instance that an animal has to be hospitalised overnight at a surgery the duty veterinarian will assess the frequency of checks required overnight.  We do not have staff on site at our surgeries 24 hours a day.

Bay Vet Group hopes that this change in the way that we work will deliver the highest standard of care to your pets.
