We are a long established small animal practice operating from one site with private parking.
We are committed to providing pets and their owners with the best possible care tailored to the wishes and means of the client.
We have medical, surgical, hospital and laboratory facilities. We offer Osteopathy and Galen Myotherapy on site, and can refer for acupuncture, homeopathy and hydrotherapy. We offer home visits by vets or nurses.
Unlike many local practices we provide our clients with an out of hours emergency service at our premises with staff that they know and access to their pet's records. We have vets on call 24 hours a day and resident nurses.
We aim to be your first port of call for all pet related matters. If we can not help we will find someone who can.

I cannot rate this practice highly enough. During a very stressful time, our 9 year old Golden Retriever developed an illness which he then died from, the care and treatment Max and us received was second to none.
Their sympathy and kindness, without being too sugary, meant a lot to us - we were left for as long as we needed to say our goodbyes and nothing was too much trouble.
Yes, a very sad time and Max is and will be sadly missed for a very long time but we felt that he was cared for in exactly the right way.

My little girls hamster had become ill. We booked and arrived within the hour. After check out from the very friendly and empathetic vet we were given the sullen news that unless a risky little op was carried out then there would be no hope. We collected a groggy but recovering Lily a couple of hours later. All on a Saturday afternoon.
Warmth, friendliness, professionalism and value. These guys were fab!

I would like to thank all the staff involved with the care, dedication and empathy given to our daughter and her puss cat over the past three months. Professionalism was of the utmost superb level.

I have always found Oathall Vets to be professional, practical, compassionate and friendly and never have a problem getting an appointment or repeat prescription when needed.
I have used their 24 hour on call service and it is reassuring to know that your pet can be cared for at any time of day or night when needed without the use of locums or outsourced emergency care.
I would highly recommend this veterinary practise.

After 25 years of association with Oathall Vets, my wife and I have just moved some way out of the Haywards Heath Area.
I just wanted to say that Oathall Vets have been a huge help in the health management of our last three cats, Paddington, Ossie and Winnie. The first two were diabetic and control of their medication was not always easy. However, Oathall were always on hand to help and nothing was ever too much trouble. I am sure that it was due to their hard work that both Paddington and Ossie managed to live quite happily with their illness for as many years as they did.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Oathall Vets to anyone.

I have had to visit the vet a few times over a short period of time and every time I've been the vet has been very patient, understanding and very helpful.
My dog had to have an operation and overnight stay, the staff were accommodating and even sent me a text at 7pm with a photo of my dog and an update.
All staff at a Oathall are polite, professional and friendly, but most if all they are very caring. I know that my pet is in good hands with them and they provide an excellent service, I would highly recommend them. 5 stars easily earned!

I was not registered with Oathall at the time but I called the 24 hr emergency line because my cat was obviously very unwell. I was able to take her straight to the surgery where the Vet gave her a thorough examination and told me she had had a seizure. They kept her in overnight and treated her for the seizures and she stayed in one more night for observation. Whenever I spoke to the Vet or the Nurses I was given detailed explanations of what they were doing and felt that she was in very capable hands and at no time did I feel pressured to agree to any further expensive and possible unnecessary tests. They advised me how to handle any further seizures and I feel reassured that if I need to call on them again they will at least know my cat's history. My first impressions of Oathall are of a very sympathetic, caring and professional Practice.

Left this vets a couple of years ago when my husband took our dog to Mid Sx Vets. Worst thing I ever did. Last year my cat was ill and as Mid Sx don't have overnight facilities. You have to transport your pet to Seers Croft at Faygate. No sooner had we got home we got a phone call to say there was nothing they could do for our cat and we had another 3/4 drive to see our cat before he was PTS. Last week our dog was ill and my husband took him to Mid Sx. Worst thing we could have done. He wasn't operated on till 4.30pm it took an hour and half. With only an hours recovery he was put in our car and we had to take him to Seers Croft. The vet we saw there could not believe he was operated on so late and then moved. Unfortunately he did not survive and died last Friday. The whole experience was so traumatic. All my pets are now with Oathall.

This is the second time I have used this vets, the first time I felt the all the staff were unsympathetic and patronising so I have always gone to the mews vets instead but my poor cat was injured and this was the only vets available in haywards Heath so I took my cat there on a Friday evening.
He had injured his paw and couldn't use it so I had no choice as he was in distress I was told he had been attacked by a dog or fox and they gave him an antibiotic injection and sent us home. Even though I was made to feel I had wasted the vets time This still cost me £130.
I then phoned the vet a week later to say my cat was still unable to walk on his paw and should I return to them or the mews who I was registered with, I was told that they had tried to contact me on several occasions ( this was not true as I have an answer phone) I then spoke to the vet who was again very patronising she kept huffing as if I was just a nuisance and I eventually just decided to take my cat to the mews instead.
I did say to the vet that she and the staff there made me feel unwelcome but I felt she wasn't really bothered I felt as though they just wanted your money.
Since then my cat has been to the mews who's I can honestly say are very caring and lovely to me and my cat. He actually had fallen and fractured his shoulder so was never attacked by a dog or fox .
The vet at the mews actually rung me (funny she managed to get hold of me!) and has explained everything to me in a caring manner, no huffing heard at all.
I suggest you review the way you treat any customer that attends your vets and treat us as you wish to be treated yourself in a respectful and caring manner .
We saw this cat one Friday evening this year when the client's own veterinary surgery was closed for the night and she did not want to travel to the emergency clinic in Brighton.
The cat was lame with no obvious cause. The owner declined our advice that we hospitalise him for further investigation. Therefore he was given an anti-inflammatory injection and he went home with instructions that he should be seen again the next day if he was not any better. The antibiotic was for an unrelated ear infection.
The owner phoned us on three more occasions, all out of hours. Each time she declined our offer to see the cat. She took him to her own vet ten days after we had seen him.
We never consider treating an injured animal to be a waste of a vet's time. It is what we provide the service for.
Any annoyance on our part was due to the frustration of knowing that the cat was still lame but that he was not being seen by either us or the owner's usual vet.
We are sorry if she misconstrued our concerns.
