Yes, we’re open but…..

Not quite back to normal yet – We’re still booking longer (therefore fewer) appointments but have opened the Wheatley surgery Monday, Thursday and Friday!  Certain types of appointment are being postponed to allow more urgent things to be seen earlier.  Call us if you have any queries or worries, but please do not come 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’re using a combination of video, phone and emailed images in many cases.  Please allow us to guide you in this respect.  Setting up a video appointment is easy, a link is sent to your email address.    Click to book now   (Videos and vaccinations!)   There are restrictions on what we can see and do at the surgery but we can discuss this by phone during office hours.


PLEASE do not arrive at the surgery without an appointment, this includes collection of medicines.  No clients will be allowed into the building – we shall be strictly observing social distancing guidelines in the car park and differing levels of PPE may be worn. Please follow directions from our staff.  It is important that you disclose your isolation/disease status when asked.

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 independent veterinary 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.


One of the two surgeries opens late until 8.15pm every weekday. Iffley Road opens at 8.30am, while Wheatley opens from 11.30am or 12.30pm, both six days a week. 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, supported by Duncan Watts and our veterinary nursing and reception teams. We look after “normal” small animals, while expert Bruce Maclean advises on birds and exotic creatures, including lizards and seahorses!

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