About us

‘.. an exceptional practice ..’ 

                          The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Inspector


From its humble beginnings in 1982, Highcroft Veterinary Group has grown to become one of the UK's leading veterinary practices.

Today the practice has 12 surgeries including a 24-hour state-of-the-art hospital and referral centre where specialist and referral vets see patients referred to them from all over the South West. Highcroft is owned by CVS, a national group with a network of highly specialised referral and veterinary services all over the country.

A team you can trust

Highcroft Veterinary Hospital is accredited with the highest practice standard by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and was described by the RCVS Inspector as the best he had ever seen in his time as an inspector.

All 12 of our surgeries have achieved 'Outstanding' in Client Service, awarded by the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme Awards, and our veterinary hospital in Whitchurch has been awarded three further awards in Diagnostic Service, Emergency and Critical Care and In-Patient Service.

Having a Referral Centre here raises the standard of our general practice work. Our vets have the most advanced diagnostic and treatment facilities in the UK at their fingertips, so they can provide the highest levels of care for all pets.

Our surgeries

You will find us in: Ashton, Brislington, Eastville, Longwell Green, Keynsham, Shirehampton, Stockwood, Weston Village, Whitchurch, Midsomer Norton, Frome and Haycombe.

Each surgery offers general practice services and all clients are welcome to visit any branch, regardless of which surgery they are registered with. This includes taking advantage of weekend and late night appointments at no extra cost.

24 hour on-site emergency service

Highcroft Veterinary Hospital in Whitchurch, Bristol, runs a 24-hour emergency service for all clients, 365 days a year.

This is one of the few veterinary hospitals that has a vet on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with full access to your pet's medical history. This saves critical time in an emergency; your pet can be assessed and treated straight away and have around-the-clock care at the hospital for as long as they need.

Home visiting service

If you or your pet would prefer not to travel, we have a dedicated home visiting service where a vet and a nurse will come to your home. Please call Highcroft Veterinary Hospital for details. ( There is a charge for this service).
