Independent Veterinary Care in Claygate since 1968

Your pets couldn’t be in better hands than at Claygate Vets. We are very much a proactive team and we love nothing more than being able to give advice and treatment to improve the lives of animals. As an independent veterinary practice, we run every part of our service and are able to always put the needs of our patients first.

Vet services in Claygate for all pets

Your pets will receive exceptional care and treatment from the moment you register with us. We welcome all types too, including exotic pets.

If you are based in Claygate, Esher, Hinchley Wood, or further afield, we can take care of all your pets’ healthcare needs with our wide range of veterinary services; these include preventative care, puppy parties, and our money-saving Healthy Pet Club.

We also have our own 24/7 emergency & critical care facility adjacent to our sister practice in nearby Molesey – learn more about our emergency service.

Join our family

When you join the Claygate Vets family, your pet won’t ever have to be without first-class veterinary care. Working side-by-side with our colleagues at our sister practices ensures we can provide a comprehensive vet service.

There is an enormous and varied wealth of knowledge and capability within our wider team of Vets and Nurses, who have more than 250 years of clinical experience between them. We have people who have been providing veterinary care for over 30 years, as well as several certificate holders in a variety of disciplines. This means we are well-equipped to look after your pets in almost all circumstances. Should your pet require more specialised treatment, we also work closely with a network of trusted referral centres.
