Yes, we’re open but…..

we sometimes have to make late changes to opening times due to the ongoing national veterinary staffing shortages, we aim to post these on Facebook and Instagram. It’s always wise to call before attending for anything other than a booked appointment or to collect medicines/food. We’re back to normal appointment lengths and aiming to provide ‘service as normal’ although sickness and holiday absences may have an impact. Both surgeries are open Monday to Friday and Iffley Road is open on Saturday. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to staff late opening.

Seeing your pet

With continuing pressure for appointments, we can use a combination of video, phone and emailed images in many cases to provide initial advice. Please allow us to guide you in this respect. There are legal restrictions in relation to prescription drugs. If you have booked a video consultation, find the address bar in your browser (not Google search) enter then ‘knock’ to enter.    When you come to the practice please maintain some social distancing, please tell us if you would prefer we wear a face covering.

Our Exciting News!

Since November 2021, After struggling through the COVID lockdown periods, We’ve devolved responsibility for our Out-of-Hours cover to the 24-hour facility, letting us stay fresh and have time to develop the practice and facilities to benefit all. Overall, this will give you and your pet 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 pleased to join other Oxford practices in using the 24h hospital to provide Out-of-Hours emergency care for your pets.


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, but just five days at Wheatley due to a national staff shortage. We provide emergency out of hours cover at a partner practice in Woodstock 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. Jessica Upton helps us two days a week and recently Tania Zalava has joined us full-time.

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.
