We aim to provide a compassionate and caring service for all small animals,including exotics. WE have a dedicated exotics ward with qualified nurses looking after your pet
Consultations are generally by appointment and a wide range of times are available throughout the week for your convenience. Whilst emergencies are seen as a priority we will endeavour to fit clients without appointments in, but there may be a wait. Appointments are normally ten minutes long (thirty minutes for specialist referral appointments).
When booking appointments please make sure you tell the receptionist which surgery you would like to go to and which vet you would like to see and they will do their best to accommodate you and your pets needs.
New patients who register for first time are offered a free health check where we give a detailed examination and preventative health care advice. If your pet is ill at the time of registration a consultation fee will be charged.
Home visits can be undertaken and your pet may be more relaxed and amenable in its home surroundings. There is a charge for this service. Please call any of our surgeries to organise a visit.
All the vets at Gatehouse are very well qualified general practioners, who have a great deal of experience across the small animal spectrum. Which means in effect- it doesn’t matter if you arrive with a dog or a frog they will confidently treat it! However each of the vets also has a personal interest and speciality.
