Pets in Linlithgow will benefit from a new service launched on Monday.
It will provide emergency care to pets outside normal working hours .
Vets ER Ltd, which is providing the service, is a co-operative venture between eight veterinary practices including Linlithgow’s Westport Veterinary Clinic – and is thought to be the first of its kind locally.
Pet disasters have a habit of striking outside normal working hours leaving pet owners often facing a hefty bill. Vets ER has recruited three experienced vets to specialise in the out of hours cases.
David Reed of Vets ER said: “Owners will receive the best possible care from a vet and vet nurse who have been recruited especially for the out of hours cases.’
