animal care

Capital Vets offers emergency cover for those pet emergencies.

Emergency and out of hours care. Daytime emergencies will be dealt with by the Capital Vets team either at the Drumbrae centre or at South Queensferry.

No appointment is required in an emergency but do please try to warn us by phone of your arrival. If your animal is ill and cannot be moved Capital Vets can collect from your home in our fully approved VETERINARY AMBULANCE. After 7.00pm Monday to Friday and 2.00pm on Saturday we use the specialised accident and emergency service VETS NOW.

It's about seven minutes' drive from the Drumbrae Veterinary Centre and about fifteen minutes from the South Queensferry surgery. A veterinary surgeon, a nurse and a receptionist are on constant call so sick or injured animals can be seen right away. Even if you just want advice or reassurance the VETS NOW team will be pleased to help, the web address is
