Yes, we’re open but…..

very cautious about new COVID risks – we’re still booking longer (therefore fewer) appointments but with certain types being postponed to allow more urgent things to be seen earlier.  As well as Iffley Road Monday-Saturday, Wheatley surgery is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday pm!  Call us if you have any queries or worries, but please don’t bring your pet to the surgery without an appointment.  Urgent and emergency cases will always be seen, out of hours service is as usual.

Seeing your pet

With fewer spaces available for face-2-face consultations we can use a combination of video, phone and emailed images in many cases to provide advice.  Please allow us to guide you in this respect.  To access a video consultation find the address bar in your browser (not Google) enter then ‘knock’ to enter.    When you come to the practice for anything please wear a face covering, if you cannot, please inform staff when making your appointment.

Our Exciting News!

After the ravages of 20 months of COVID we’ve come up with a way onwards and upwards for the practice – we’re delighted to have joined the wider Medivet Community and will benefit from admin support and access to new facilities and specialities. We’ll also share some of our Out-of-Hours cover, letting us stay fresh and have time to develop the practice and facilities to benefit all.
Giving you a better, more comprehensive service from the friendly team you already know.

First and foremost, we’re animal lovers just like you

We understand that most customers treat their pets as part of their family and that for some a pet is their only family. So, our commitment is to look after them with the respect they and you deserve, and as if they were one of our own.

We advise, diagnose and treat all your pets at our modern and progressive, friendly practice. Both our sites have car parking and we're the only vets in Oxford to offer emergency out of hours cover on site.


We have two surgeries for your convenience, our main site at Iffley Road in Oxford and a branch at Roman Road, Wheatley. Once you’ve registered at one, you can make appointments at either. Our vets work across both sites, too.


We are open six days a week at Iffley Road, and currently 2&1/2 days at Wheatley due to covid-induced staffing issues. We provide emergency out of hours cover at Iffley Road and offer home visits if necessary.


The practice is headed by veterinary surgeons Cameron Forbes and Katharine Morrison, helped by our fantastic veterinary nursing and reception teams. We look after “normal” small animals, while expert Bruce Maclean advises on more exotic creatures, including lizards, tortoises and seahorses!

Meet the caring and compassionate team who will look after your pets as if they were our own

Let us introduce our wonderful, caring staff.
