I qualified as a vet 25 years ago and have worked in general practice in and around London pretty much ever since with brief periods teaching in a university in Mexico and as a manager in a large group (which I didn’t enjoy nearly as much!). I owned practices across South London for 15 years before moving to Uxbridge and I have really enjoyed the welcome I have received here.

I am passionate about caring for all my patients and listening to my clients and enjoy helping you throughout the lives of your loved pets.
I look forward to welcoming you to Uxbridge Vets!’

What distinguishes Mark from the crowd is his passion for communication with humans, as well as animals. Mark’s understanding nature and positive outlook have set him up to be a natural leader who takes everything in his stride.

Qualifying as a Veterinary Nurse in 1999, Mark has enjoyed a distinguished career focusing on the wellbeing of all animals. Mark particularly enjoys guiding and advising animal owners and our team to ensure the animals under our care receive the best possible treatment.

Expert Healthcare

Our veterinary practice has established itself amongst the local community and now provides care to thousands of pets every year.

We know as well as anyone that you consider your pet to be a member of your family. That is why the whole team here at the practice work hard to provide the very best veterinary care services.

So, if you are seeking treatment or advice for your pet, do please contact us.

Uxbridge Vets Values

Our mission is simple. We will provide the best possible care to our patients and the best possible service to our clients at a fair price.

We set out, in 2020, to establish a community practice. By investing in our staff and our facilities we are able to provide an advanced medical and surgical service but maintaining the personal touch. It is important to us that we get to know you and your pets and you can feel confident that you will see familiar faces whenever you visit. We look forward to seeing your dogs pull you into the surgery to see us (although we can’t promise the same for your cats!)

We promise to follow the five values we have established for Uxbridge Vets

Trust – we believe that all veterinary care is a team effort between us and you and mutual trust is essential. We will always strive to build this trust through honesty and integrity.

Excellence – we have sought out the best, most experienced local team and equipped our practice to a high level so that we can provide all our patients with the best care.

Service – we know that we will be judged by the service we provide to you and this is at the centre of everything we do.

Caring – as a practice we care about our staff, our clients and, of course, our patients.

Happiness – we want to make Uxbridge Vets the place that you and your pets want to come to, we love to see you leave with a smile (or a wagging tail!) This is what makes us happy to come to work every day!

Alistair the vet himself is so knowledge, focus, dedicated, sharp & clued on to his work as well as being so friendly, pleasant, understanding, reassuring and lastly so patient with a nervous wreck like me cause when it comes to my animals …… I’m a thousand questions!


Fantastic vet practice! Always feel confident leaving my pets (children), with them. Mark is lovely and makes a huge fuss of my cat in particular who can be quite nervous and not the easiest of patients I’m sure! Highly recommended.


Always a pleasure visiting Uxbridge Vets. From the ease of booking an appointment online, to the friendliness of both Alistair & Mark, it always makes what may feel like a stressful time (for both pooch and owner) a nice and easy experience. I always recommend to both my family and friends.
