This is an emergency service for Spring Lodge clients that is staffed by our own Vets and nurses – please call 07702 070037 for help between these times.

Any animals requiring hospitalisation or operations are transported in our ambulance to our Witham Hospital (see ‘Witham Centre’) for the team of vets and qualified nurses to care for.

Our ‘out of hours’ care is provided by Vets Now Ltd.  They are an independent company who provide the equivilant of a pet A&E department for local practices  during the night and weekends.  We are lucky, as this service is run from our Witham Hospital so your animal can receive care 24 hours a day once it has been admitted to our Hospital.  For more information on Vets Now please go to (Vets Now fees apply to this service).


We opened as a branch practice of Spring Lodge Veterinary Hospital in 1999, originally working from a demountable ‘hut’ on the site of ‘The Cricketers Arms’ while we were waiting for our practice to be completed.

Our main veterinary surgeons are Lucy Drew, Portia Clayton and Joanna Grove-Smith who over see the running of the Practice. They are assisted by our experienced reception staff of Barbara, Lesa, Juliet and Stuart  who are there to answer any questions, provide advice and book appointments.

Sophie Gilbey is our practice nurse who offers regular nursing clinics for microchipping, nail clipping, health advice and preventative health treatments.
