Recently my dog was attacked by another dog. Miraculously, he was only superficially injured.
However, I discovered that if he had been seriously injured, there is no out of hours Vet open in Eastbourne. I called all the vets, I believe, in Eastbourne. I was told that one would have to go to Bexhill on Sea.
If my dog had been seriously injured, he may well have died on the way. Aside from which I do not own a car and would have had to call and take a taxi. I would be most happy if the vets in Eastbourne can correct me if I am wrong.
But, if I am correct, surely a city of 99,300 ( Wikipedia, 2011 Census ) should have an out of hours emergency vet?
