Our Story

Offering the highest quality care for your pets

Downland Veterinary Group started in Chichester in 1946. Initially concentrating on farm work, the practice expanded to Emsworth in the 1970s to open a small animal clinic and covered a whole range of farm, equine and companion animal work. As the veterinary profession changed, the practice has stayed at the forefront of medicine and surgery and over the last two decades, we have concentrated solely on small animal work. Today we have twelve vet practices covering Hampshire and West Sussex, offering the highest quality care for the region's pets.

What can you expect from us?

Delivering a first class service is our priority at Downland Veterinary Group. We take great pride in the investment in facilities that we have at our clinics, but appreciate that the most important thing we offer is the quality of our staff. Our vets, nurses and receptionists are here to care for both you and your pets and offer you the best possible service.

We ensure that our staff engage in regular training to keep up to date with the latest development in veterinary medicine and place a high emphasis on customer care. Many of our staff have been with the group for many years and we are fortunate to be able to offer you a consistent service with faces that you get to know and hopefully build trusting relationships with.

A full 24-hour emergency service is provided by our partner VetsNow who are based at our Hilsea clinic. Pets that require hospitalisation, Monday to Friday, are looked after at our Emsworth or Bognor Regis surgery, where Veterinary Surgeons and nurses are on duty throughout the night.

If you need to use this service out of hours for emergency treatment or advice, please call your local Downland Veterinary Group clinic - you will be diverted to the Vets Now emergency service team, who will ensure you receive the best and quickest response to your needs.
