Information about hotels can be found here places to stay
We will send you some hotel names and places to eat in your Welcome email or letter after you book your appointment with our Reception team.
As we are a referral service, your primary veterinary surgeon will need to complete a referral form to start the referral process. Once we have received this our reception staff will then contact you using the information provided and an appointment can be arranged for a mutually convenient date and time.
Unfortunately no, this has to be arranged by your own primary veterinary surgeon.
Appointments are scheduled in the mornings between Monday and Friday in order to be able to complete all procedures. Although we endeavour to try and do this on the same day, this is not always possible so please allow the better part of the day for your visit to Chester Gates and possibly an overnight stay as your pet may be hospitalised for further treatment and tests.
Your first consultation appointment with the veterinary specialist will be approximately 45-60 minutes. Any further appointments will be approximately 30 minutes.
We ask that you pay for any treatment at the time you collect your pet unless a direct claim has been agreed in which case we would require the insurance excess and administration fee to be paid at your first appointment. Read our insurance guide for further information.
