About Us

Find out more about our practice

We provide the best possible service and veterinary care for all popular smaller animals including dogs, cats, and rabbits whilst we also have the expertise to care for guinea pigs, birds, reptiles and wildlife all in a relaxed and friendly environment. We believe passionately that this can only come from a group of veterinary practices that are not driven by profits but purely by quality of care, value and clinical excellence. The numbers speak for themselves - over 24,000 pet owners have trusted AlphaPet with over 80,000 of their animals and we're here to help you too.

In an emergency, especially when your pet is seriously sick or injured, you want to visit your local practice and to see your normal vet as quickly as possible. So AlphaPet continues to offer our own 24 hour in-house emergency service at our Bognor Regis surgery in West Meads; so we are there when you most need us. Both our Chichester vets surgeries at Lavant and Birdham use this in-house emergency service.

We pride ourselves on being a very personal, approachable practice.

We do not use call centres or separate emergency practices with which you are unfamiliar. Many other practices outsource their emergency service provision meaning that their clients have to travel to strange and unfamiliar practices where fees can be significantly higher - not something we feel our clients would want at a time of high stress.

We try to be honest and up front with regard to our fee structure.

In order for us to continue to improve our service with the rapid advances that are occurring in veterinary medicine, we have to be able to reinvest in our practice to acquire more state of the art equipment, facilities and top-quality staff.

We do not offer upfront discounts to entice clients into the practice. Common sense shows that discounted fees have to be made up elsewhere or the money will not be available to invest in equipment, facilities and staff.

At AlphaPet, we simply charge a scale of fees that covers our costs and allows us to reinvest in the practice to continue to provide “Exceptional Care For The Life Of Your Pet”.

We work very much as a team. Our philosophy is that a happy staff team means happy patients and happy clients. In the 26 years since our establishment, the majority of our staff have stayed and grown with us.

AlphaPet is a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Accredited Practice. Our Bognor Regis Hospital is the only local RCVS Accredited Veterinary Hospital.
