Our Practice

We are Portishead’s only RCVS approved veterinary hospital with a team of friendly vets and qualified nurses who are available 24/7 with round the clock on-site care. This certification guarantees that Vale Vets have first rate operating facilities and the latest equipment, allowing us to treat injured or ill pets as quickly and efficiently as possible. We also have intensive care facilities for seriously injured or sick animals and vets and nurses on the premises round the clock.

We don’t hand over to an out of hours practice 20 miles away when we clock off in the evening or at weekends. Whatever time of day or night you call, you can see our vets at our premises. We have appointments throughout the day and at weekends with onsite parking.

We offer excellent value, with a great deal for new puppies and kittens. And we have our own healthy pet club offering extra savings on regular pet health costs. Our nurses run clinics on everything from dental care to weight watching, plus free puppy parties every month.

If you’ve just moved to the area, or acquired a new pet, register today and we’ll send you our welcome pack. Whether you’ve got a Persian puss or a Dutch rabbit; an iguana or a weimaraner, we’d love to show you why pets prefer Vale Vets.

Where we are

We have our veterinary hospital in Portishead and a branch clinic in Pill, click here to find us. And for those who just can’t get to the vets, we offer home visits. Contact our receptionists for more details.

Referral Dentist

Our Dentistry referral service is headed by Matthew Oxford, BVM&S GPCertSAS MRCVS, supported by our team of qualified and experienced nurses at our hospital in Portishead.

We work closely with our referring practices in the South West and Wales to ensure that our patients receive the highest care in areas that go beyond general practice veterinary dentistry. The team have undergone extensive training and completed advanced postgraduate qualifications to ensure that veterinary dental work is carried out to the highest standard.

Meet the totally gorgeous Wilma who came in to be neutered today & looks totally awesome in her medical pet shirt. The Medical Pet Shirt is a alternative to a buster collar (lampshade) for protecting wounds and bandages. The design is based on the animal’s shape and anatomy with a snug fit as result. Leah our Nurse couldn't resist a post op cuddle. ... See MoreSee Less

We are pleased to welcome 3 new additions to our Portishead hospital. Marta has been at the hospital working as a Veterinary Night Intern for the past 18 months. Some of you may recognise her if you have had to bring your pet in out of hours. She has now joined our Vet team so you will be seeing a lot more of her. Please say hello if you see her in consults!
