Project Description


Having your pet vaccinated protects them against the most common infectious, and potentially fatal, diseases. By bringing your pet for an annual health check and vaccination you are giving them the best quality of life and protecting others, as you are reducing the chance of any outbreaks of infectious diseases.

During the vaccination consultation your pet will be thoroughly examined by the vet and any concerns you may have can be discussed.


Since 6th April 2016 it is now compulsory by law for all dogs to be microchipped, this must happen before the dog is 8 weeks old otherwise you could be liable for up to £500 fine.

A microchip is the most common and easiest way of identifying your pet should they become lost or stolen. The chip is about as small as a grain of rice and is inserted just under the skin, it’s very likely that your pet won’t even feel it.

If your pet is ever lost or stolen they can be quickly scanned by any vet or animal rescue centre. Your details will be found on the database and you will receive a phone call to be reunited with your pet.

Pet Passports

You will need a pet passport to be able to take your pet (dog, cat or ferret) on holiday with you to certain listed countries. There are strict guidelines that have to be adhered to be able to travel out of and back into the UK with your pet.

To be able to immigrate with your pet, depending on which country you are going to, this needs to be well organised, sometimes 8 months in advance. It is best to discuss your particular requirements with your vet.

Please check the government guidelines on Taking your pet abroad for up to date information.

When it comes to the health of your pet we know that you want to find a veterinary practice that offers unrivalled care; after all, your pet is one of the family. You want to know that they will be seen by experienced vets using the most up-to-date facilities, in an environment that is comfortable and as stress free as possible…


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.



Our patients are treated by an experienced and dedicated team. Alistair and Mark are committed to providing excellent, compassionate care.

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!’
