Overnight care of in-patients

Any patient requiring overnight care at any of our four surgeries will be transferred to Valley Veterinary Hospital. The emergency service staff have full access to all computerised clinical records.

Depending on the case, transfer may be undertaken by the client, Valley Vets staff in their private cars, or Valley 24/7 care ambulance.

There are no staff on site overnight at any of the four surgeries; therefore no patients are left there. Rarely, a healthy pet may be boarded at Caerphilly or Pentyrch overnight.

At Valley Veterinary Hospital, any Valley Vets patient remaining in overnight, has the benefit of continual attention from the vet / nursing team from Valley 24/7 care, who start their night “shift” when we finish the day “shift”.

Valley 24/7 Care, will charge clients separately for overnight hospitalisation and treatment. Please ask for further details.

The day and night teams at Valley Veterinary Hospital schedule a handover period at both the start and end of shifts for complete discussion of cases to avoid any confusion arising.
