This practice is always welcoming and friendly. My 12yr old border collie has always loved coming here. I love the way they are available 24 hrs a day if needed. Caring professional and friendly, everything you need for peace of mind when you have a sick animal.

Had to take Macey (my cat) to see the vet this afternoon. He was brilliant. Macey obviously liked him as she didn't play up. She's normally quite feisty. I highly recommend Priory Vets. I've used their services for years.

Tanis

Just want to say thank you for making a sad visit peaceful, kind and professional. We have always found the Priory looked after our pets well and would not want to go anywhere else. Thank you.

Jenny

The most amazing, kind, professional veterinary clinic, not just vets but also reception. Can't thank you guys all enough. Every time I needed your help, you have always been there. Thank you.

Anta

Professional, empathetic, superb veterinaries who go above and beyond the call of duty. All staff are friendly and give good advice.

Nicola

Thanks to all at Priory Vets Christchurch for taking care of me as well as my poor Tilly when she was poorly. The lady who answered the phone was very kind and caring and fitted us in very quickly. Emma the vet was very kind to my dog and explained my choices clearly. I received the same care at all of Tilly's follow up appointments. Thoroughly recommend.
