Vets Now have revolutionised the way emergency veterinary care is provided.

Out-of-hours doesn't mean ALL hours
Its a common misconception that working out-of-hours means you will be working all the time. Our Vets and Nurses find the opposite. Our shifts tend to be longer so you work fewer of them. The Senior Vet in Preston will work an average of 40 hours per week. When you compare this with our shift length of 13.5 hours, you will only end up working an average of 3 shifts per week.
