I have just discovered that my local vet doesn't have any staff at the surgery overnight, I'm not sure whether this is because it's a weekend or if this is normal procedure during the week as well. My vet's is a really modern building with all the latest in veterinary care, so this came as a surprise to me - what happens if sick dogs are kept in overnight and they need attention? Does the same happen with other surgeries? I was told however that they look in on animals kept in every now and again, but I don't think that's right somehow and find it rather worrying??
