Welcome to Rock View Vets

A new approach to veterinary care
Quality care : Fairly priced


*From 1 September 2022


So here at Rock View Vets we are doing our best to provide your pets with the treatment they need in these challenging times.

We are a small practice and keep our practice small so we can offer a personal service.

The flip side of this is we do not have lots of staff to answer the phone especially at the moment when we are working at a safe distance from each other due to Covid.

Our boss, Fiona, wants to keep us all safe. To this end we are still keeping clients outside.

We ask you to be patient. We will try our best to answer all your telephone calls and emails as soon as we can.

What is the procedure?

1) Telephone the surgery for an appointment- or to discuss a concern
2) Telephone us when you are in the car park
3) The vet (Fiona) will come out and chat with you about your pet and the areas you are concerned about
4) Fiona will take your pet into the consulting room while you wait in the carpark
5) Fiona will examine your pet
6) Fiona will then come out and chat with you about your pet and what treatment she advises
7) After giving your pet the treatment Fiona will bring your pet back to you
8) We will then ask you to telephone the reception desk from the carpark to settle the bill with a card if at all possible please

I know this is slow and laborious but I think it is the best way to keep us all at a distance but get your pet the treatment he/she needs.

Please bear with us, we are down to one member of staff at a time and she has to answer the phone and sort medications and take payments


We will post out flea/tick/worm treatments at a cost of £3.00

Please order 3 months’ supply at a time. Service available to all registered clients including those on the Budget Care Plan.


In a changing world where veterinary practices are often owned by large business chains we pride ourselves on being a small, independently owned practice where traditional customer care and dedication to patient well-being are our top priorities. Book an appointment today and come and see for yourself. Read more about our approach…

Lets Talk about older dogs and Cats

Personally I think older dogs and cats are great!

But, unfortunately they sometimes get a raw deal

Many issues that could be causing your old dog or cat pain CAN be helped ( not necessarily cured) with some medication.

Latest News

We love to keep you up to date with what’s going on at Rock View Vets.

Opening Hours

Monday to Friday: Reception open 9am – 6.00pm
Saturday: 9am – 12.30pm

We are a small Independent Practice; we keep staff levels low so we can get to know our clients and so we can keep our costs down and our prices competitive. We hope that you’ll love the way that we work. But if you are looking for the largest vet practice in town we may not be for you!



When to Neuter Your Dog?

There is a lot of information and misinformation out there about the best time to neuter your pet dog.

BVA Guidance for Cat Owners

You may have heard on the news this morning advice to cat owners to keep their cats indoors and clients may be ringing you with questions.  Please be assured that the advice to keep cats indoors is only for those cats currently in a household where someone is self-isolating with suspected Covid-19 and the cat is happy to be kept indoors. 

Raw Pet Food

After many requests we have decided to stock frozen raw cat and dog food at Rock View Vets. Find out why here...

You know we’re here for you and your pets whether you have a routine query or a blue light emergency. Whilst we all hope that our pets will never be taken seriously ill, or involved in an accident, it’s worth being prepared in case the worst should happen.

We’re a part of your community and get to know our clients and their pets as friends. That’s how we provide affordable veterinary care as individual as your pet. But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what people say about us:

“I first went with my pet hamster and loved the care given by everyone. I’ve now been visiting Rock View Vets for 3 and a half years and Fiona is fab at caring for my rabbits and every member of staff are really friendly.”

“I was previously with another vet and I requested to see a K-laser vet for my dog, Jensen. I was then referred to Rock View and we both love it so decided to stay. With the K-laser I have seen an improvement as Jensen is now bearing more weight on his rear leg where he was having trouble before. Jensen loves going to the practice! All the staff are friendly and I really like the continuity of staff.”

“We love going to Rock View – all the staff know us and our pets.”

“The staff are very caring and can’t do enough for us.”

“We moved to Rock View because our other practice was too big and didn’t seem to care.”

“The staff at Rock View are great! The nurses are lovely and go out of their way to help.”
