When should I call a PetGP nurse?

PetGP is here to help when you think your pet is unwell, and you just want independent, expert advice about what to do.

After all, in 2 out of 3 cases, we have found that an immediate trip to the vet isn’t necessary. So it makes sense to call us first – which may help you avoid the inconvenience, stress and cost of an avoidable trip.

Of course, there are other times when it’s vital to get your pet to a vet as soon as possible. If you’re unsure, call our expert vet nurses, and we may be able to help you spot a life-threatening problem early on.

If you’ve already seen a qualified vet about a particular issue, we’re only able to give you a second opinion. (Please note that we’ll assume you’re agreeing to this if you call us under these circumstances.)
