Vets in Bishop's Waltham - cats, dogs, rabbits and other small animals

Bishops Waltham Vet

Shield Veterinary Centre has a team of highly experienced vets and nurses devoted to the long-term health and well-being of your pet. Here at our Bishopís Waltham vet surgery we look after dogs, cats, rabbits and a wide range of other small animals.

You will see below and on our veterinary care page that the centre has only the most modern facilities including digital x-rays, ultrasound, up to date surgery suites and hospitalisation.

The Centre was established in 1986, as David Frere-Cook fulfilled his long held ambition of setting up and running his own Veterinary Practice. Bishops Waltham Vet, David Frere Cook

Still living today in the house in which he was born; David qualified from Bristol University in 1981 and immediately joined the Royal Army Veterinary Corps for a three year short service commission. He then spent two years as an assistant in a small animal practice in North Hampshire before putting up his plate, as the first residential practising veterinary surgeon, in Bishop's Waltham.

The rest, they say is history. The Practice has grown steadily over the last twenty years. A major structural expansion and upgrading of facilities in 1997 coincided with the shedding of the equine side of the practice and it's evolution into an entirely small animal practice.

We now provide 24 hour emergency cover via VetsNow.

Shield Veterinary Centre is operated in conjunction with Hedge End Veterinary Health Centre.
