Bell Equine Emergency Contact Information
The reception team is always available to help you during office hours on 01622 813700.
If you have an emergency at any other time, please still call the office on the usual number 01622 813700.
You will then be given 2 options:
Press 1 to have your call diverted directly to our pager service who will contact the duty vet for you.
Press 2 to leave a non-urgent message, which our receptionists will respond to during working hours the following day.
Please stay by the phone and one of our vets will ring you back within 10 minutes. Try to keep the line clear until we contact you. If the vet does not call you within 10 minutes, please call 01622 813700 again and the pager service will contact the vet again.
As we are a specialist referral hospital, there is always someone on site. If you are coming directly to the hospital, please ring first as we may be dealing with other emergency cases. The hospital electric security gates are closed from 8pm to 6am and you will need to ring the gate phone (07890 568564) to gain entrance.

We are incredibly proud to announce Edd Knowles graduating from the Royal Veterinary College with a PhD. Edd has been working on his PhD part time for the last 6 years in and around his normal clinical work at Bell, a lot of work to say the least!
His research focused on laminitis and how best to identify which ponies / horses were most likely to develop the condition.
The research showed that whilst many factors can help to identify those most at risk of laminitis, such as their levels of exercise, body condition score (related to levels of fat) and some hoof changes, it was the levels of insulin in their blood that was the best way to identify those who would develop laminitis.
The results will be presented to other equine vets at the BEVA Congress in September and are expected to be published as a scientific paper.
