The receptionists will do their best to accommodate your appointment requirements – please give as much information as possible so that appropriate time can be allocated to your pet’s condition.  The standard consultation time is 10 minutes; if you have several issues to discuss with the vet or are planning to bring more than one animal, please let us know when booking the appointment.

If you would like to make an appointment for our Merrilaw Surgery in Great Missenden, please specify this to the receptionist.

On arrival

Please always book in at the reception desk on arrival.

If you are late and miss your appointment slot we will do our best to fit you in as soon as possible around the other appointments. If you would rather rearrange your appointment than wait for the next available slot, please let reception know. If you know in advance that you will be late, please phone and reschedule.

We do our best to adhere to booked appointment times but occasionally emergencies will need to be prioritised.
