Our Main Surgery at the Hythe is open six days a week.

On weekdays, we open from 8am to 7pm

We are closed on Sundays and bank holidays. However, a full emergency service is available at any time when the practice is closed. If you telephone the practice outside normal hours, you will be transferred to the Colchester Vets Now emergency clinic. The staff at the emergency clinic are available to give telephone advice whenever our surgery is closed. They will also be happy to arrange to see your pet and any time outside our normal surgery hours.
