Yes, we’re open but…..

very cautious about the changing COVID risks – we’re resuming normal appointment lengths and allowing restricted numbers into reception.  Please wear a face-covering unles exempt.  Only one adult +/- a child can come into the consulting rooms. As well as Iffley Road Monday-Saturday, Wheatley surgery is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday!  Call us if you have any queries or worries, but please don’t bring your pet to the surgery without an appointment.  Urgent & emergency cases will always be seen, the out of hours service accessed by calling the usual numbers.

Seeing your pet

With mounting pressure for appointments 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, there are legal restrictions in relation to prescription drugs.  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.  On arrival please call us or knock at the door.

Our Exciting News!

Since November 2021, after struggling through the COVID lockdown  periods, we’re delighted to have joined the wider Medivet community and will benefit from admin support and access to new facilities and specialities. We’ve devolved responsibility for our Out-of-Hours cover to the 24-hour facility in Woodstock (who will be able to access your notes with your consent), 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 Woodstock Medivet 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, and currently 3 days at Wheatley due to covid-induced staffing issues. We provide emergency out of hours cover through the Woodstock 24h hospital and offer home visits if necessary.


The practice is headed by veterinary surgeons Cameron Forbes and Katharine Morrison, ably assisted by Bruce Stevens and Jessica Upton, both with many years' experience and 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.
