About Us

Priory Vet Group was established in the 1960’s and has been providing the very best care for pets in our community 24hrs a day ever since.

The practice is owned by vets Philip Hughes, Daniel May and Emma Newton. They are ably supported by 7 assistants. Working as a whole team enables vets to develop their interests in specific disciplines, often undertaking further qualifications, but also to combine their skills to provide the best care when needed. We are the only veterinary practice in Dorset to have a combination of vets with advanced qualifications and expertise in ophthalmology, surgery, cardiology and dentistry.

The Veterinary Hospital in Christchurch is the hub of the practice, with branch surgeries in Bransgore and Highcliffe offering convenient locations for all our clients. We also offer home visits for all species. The Christchurch surgery is the only practice in Dorset awarded with Hospital status by the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons). This means we have met the highest possible standards of facilities, care and service for our clients and their pets.

We recognise animals and clients are individuals and will strive to give you and your animals the very best care that we can. Priory Vet Group aims for exceptional care at affordable prices.
