    Has your pet suddenly fallen ill or had an accident? We have a list of contacts for emergency help with your pet.

    If your pet becomes ill outside your vet’s normal opening hours it can be a worrying time for you. Mayhew's Vet Clinic is for preventative care only, however we can provide a list of emergency veterinary practices.

    Your vet, even if closed, is obliged to have another veterinary practice providing care for their usual clients. Please call them and listen carefully to their out-of-hours answerphone message.

    If your pet has an emergency in relation to a treatment given by us, please phone our Clinic. If there is no reply, and it is during our opening hours, come to the Clinic if you are safe and able to do so.

    In the event of an emergency relating to a procedure carried out at Mayhew, please contact the RSPCA Finsbury Park Animal Hospital on 0300 123 8071.

    This service operates between the hours of 5pm and 8am Monday to Saturday and all-day Sunday.

    Please note that any costs incurred will need to be paid in full by you. In addition, under no circumstances will we pay for any veterinary fees.

    If you are in receipt of benefits or on low income you may be eligible to be seen at one of the below clinics and hospitals.
