Welcome to Crouch Vale Veterinary Practice.

Dear all,

As our next step to protect you and us in accordance with RCVS & BVA advice we are stopping


We are still here to see your poorly pets and will be providing ESSENTIAL AND EMERGANCY veterinary care only.  This means no vaccines/boosters/nail clips etc for the next 3 weeks at least. If you have any concerns about this please telephone the practice.

  • We have also stopped all routine surgeries.
  • We will no longer be taking cash payments.
  • All card payments are to be taken over the phone.

When you arrive at the practice please telephone us to let us know you are here, we will then get your animals history over the telephone.

A member of staff will then collect your animal from the front door.

A vet will then ring you to let you know the treatment plan and discuss options, payment will then also be taken over the phone.

We appreciate all your understanding and patience as we try to keep you and ourselves safe so that we can continue to provide emergency treatment for your pets.

If you are bored and want to email us a picture of your beautiful babies to keep our spirits up that would be great.

Stay safe, well and indoors!


We are an independently run veterinary practice; owned and managed by a local vet and her family who have lived in the South Woodham Ferrers area for nearly twenty years.

Crouch Vale Vets opened in January 2011, we now have two vets – Aisling and Neil, three RVNs – Hannah, Clare and Luke.

Luke is also a qualified animal physiotherapist which means we can offer a full range of therapeutic care.

And not forgetting Carol, our receptionist. 

Aisling is a Local Veterinary Inspector and is able to carry out the requirements for the Pet Passport Scheme and other small animal exports. We have digital x-rays, a state of the art operating theatre, and a laboratory that can offer a full range of tests on-site, meaning same-day test results and prompt commencement of treatment.

As our nurses are fully qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses, they are able to offer first-line triage and support, often negating the need to make an appointment with a vet.
