When your pet is feeling too sick to travel, we can come to you. Our home visits are dependent upon the availability of our vets, so please try to phone us as early as possible if you’d like to make an appointment for that day. If you think your pet will be able to make the trip to see us, we can recommend numerous taxi services which are experienced in transporting sick animals.
We will see emergencies at any time, please telephone so we know you are on your way. Out of hours, we can provide you with 24-hour emergency service if your pet has a sudden accident. We do this via Vets Now, a dedicated 24-hour service based in Preston. This means that when you telephone us you may be given details of another practice to contact to receive care.
Mondays to Friday : 9am-11.30am and 2pm-7pm
Saturday : 9am-1pm
Sunday : 2pm-4pm
Car parking available in the church car park behind the surgery.
Our excellently stocked surgery is filled with hi-tech equipment and our staff are well trained and caring allowing us to perform a wide range of surgical procedures. If there are any injuries we can’t deal with – spinal surgery or cataract removal for example – we can refer you to another specialist.
We have dedicated separate wards for cats, dogs and rabbits and other small furries, as well as isolation facilities for pets with infectious diseases.
Repeat prescriptions are available at our reception. Telephone us to order them or fill in the form below. Please provide us with at least 24 hour notice to ensure that your medicines and prescriptions are ready when you arrive.
Prescriptions are available from this practice.
You may obtain Prescription Only Medicines, Category V, (POM-Vs) from your veterinary surgeon or ask for a prescription and obtain these medicines from another veterinary surgeon or a pharmacy. We need 24 hours notice to supply a written prescription. Prescriptions will not be written during a consultation as time is not provided for this.
Your veterinary surgeon may prescribe POM Vs only for animals under his or her care.
A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary.
You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your animal.
The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions every 3 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. There is a charge for this examination, please contact us for the current fee.
Further information on the prices of medicines is available on request.
Please note there is usually a consultation fee to pay each time you see a veterinary surgeon.
We work with practices around our local area of Preston, taking on surgical cases that can’t be managed elsewhere and creating affordable treatment plans designed to address the needs of both clients and patients.

We invest a lot of time and money in our services to ensure our facilities are modern and comfortable for your pets. Our expert facilities mean you can enjoy great services.
Cat waiting area
We are passionate about caring for your pets. Your cat can become more stressed than other animals when forced to socialise with dogs or rabbits in the practice waiting room. That’s why our calm and well-designed ‘comfortable cat’ waiting area exists – to give your furry friend a relaxing visit when they see us.
Taking your pet abroad
Plan ahead if you want your pet to travel abroad – they can only be authorised by a fully qualified veterinary surgeon. We have the facilities to check your pet thoroughly for illness and provide it with the immunisations and paperwork it requires before it can travel to other countries.
To keep your pet looking spick and span, we’ve associated ourselves with local dog grooming specialists MutzCutz. One of our vets can be present in case your dog needs any specialist treatment, or sedation for grooming.
Young at Heart
Geriatric wellness checks are a vital part of life for older pets. Our Young at Heart tests involve a comprehensive check-up for your animal, and involves blood tests, and an examination for any underlying conditions such as skin, dental, eye or digestive problems.
Pet euthanasia and cremation services
If your pet is in unmanageable pain or his or her quality of life is too poor, we can also provide a caring euthanasia service. We can do this as a house visit or you can have an appointment at the surgery.
Contact us for more details.
After euthanasia or in the sad event that your pet is no longer with us, we can arrange a simple and respectful cremation. Options include;
Taking your pet home for burial.
Having cremation and your pet’s ashes back to you in a personalised casket.
Having a routine cremation where the ashes are kept by the crematorium.
We can also provide paw prints or hair clippings as memories if required.
Pet behaviour problems
Some pets can suffer from behavioural problems, such as over-excitability, territorial aggression, destructiveness, insecurity and much more.
In the event of any behavioural difficulties, we can refer you and your pet to a qualified Animal Behaviourist.
