Should I call PetGP or go straight to the vet?

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 vets and 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.)
