About Us

Priory Vet Group was established in the 1960’s and was based on the traditional vet mixed practice model. We believe in and provide care for all species, 24 hours /day 365 days a year.

The practice is owned by vets Philip Hughes, Daniel May and Emma Newton. They are ably supported by 7 assistants. The team structure works very well, enabling vets to develop their interests in specific disciplines and combine their skills to provide the best care when needed. We are the only Practice in Dorset to have a combination of vets with advanced qualifications and expertise in ophthalmology, surgery and dentistry.

The Veterinary Hospital in Christchurch is the centre of the practice, a very energetic and busy hub. Our branch surgeries offer a quieter and calmer experience, but we also offer home visits for all species.

We recoginise animals and clients are individuals and will strive to give you and your animals the best care we can. Priory vets aims for exceptional care at affordable prices.
