Our team of caring vets and nurses are here to offer advice from choosing the most suitable family pet, through to routine vaccination, health checks, neutering and medical problems, as well as understanding major surgery and senior care.

Here at the Walkden vet practice we organise regular fundraising events to help out pets in need from our local area, through the White Cross Fund. Thanks to the generous people of Walkden, our charity car wash raised over £450, which White Cross Vets doubled. A huge thank you to everyone who came down!

Pet dental services: dental care for dogs, cats and rabbits

We recommend you should have your pet’s teeth examined by one of our team on a regular basis. As many conditions are progressive, early identification is important.

A full dental check is included free with our Complete Wellness Plan.

If necessary, this should be followed up with a professional dental clean. Our team will then remove the tartar above and below the gumline and polish them, just like a dentist does for our teeth.

If certain teeth are so severely affected they cannot be saved, extractions will be necessary. Pets are usually able to go home on the same day.

– Dental health checks £FREE

– Scale & polish £99

– Dental with extractions £199

For more information on caring for your pets, including tips on good pet dental care and how to clean your pet’s teeth, read our advice pages.

All prices are inclusive of VAT.

He took the time and effort to explain what was going on even phoning me in the evening to give me some more advice.brilliant service Evan many thanks for treating Bella."

- Maurice Loder

"Staff are all very friendly and polite. You get the impression the vets genuinely care about your pets.

Place is clean. My last vet had a rather grubby looking building. I know that has no bearing and whether they are a good vet but appearances do matter."

- Tim Swarbrick

"Great team. Always makes time for my labradors. Would not go anywhere else. Evan is our hero."

"Outstanding service from Evan, Clinical Director and his team who gave exceptional care to our dog Buster who was poorly recently. Would highly recommend the practice and the very friendly professionalism and personal care for pets."

- Sheila Buckingham

"Jess is almost 15 now, she's a greatly cherished colly cross, she's had a few problems in the past and two weeks ago she became quite poorly, Evan had a look at Jess and took a blood sample there and then. Within half an hour he had the test results. He prescribed treatment to be taken over the next week. She responded almost immediately and picked up quickly. At this point I have to add that Jess has Cushings and thyroid trouble so we were pretty worried. She's back to her old self now, walking at least two miles most days, she's a marvel and we'd like to thank Evan and all the staff at White Cross for their patience and dedication. Thanks you lot! Pip N Jean n Jess."

- Paula Chapman

"When we first came to Whitecross Vets at Walkden we were new parents!! New parents to our beautiful Chihuahua Poppy. Going to the vets was a brand new experience but one we will always remember. Not only did the vets and nurses look after Poppy but also educated us on everything. After a year we felt so confident that we got our new baby Chihuahua Pickle and again she has also become part of the Whitecross family.

The vets, nurses and the administration staff are all amazing and go out of there way to make you feel happy and content with everything that is happening with our pet. Now trips to the vets is a family occasion as we all love going. We relax and have some fun with all the staff in a brilliant family friendly environment. I know that the times we go won’t always be happy times if our babies are poorly however I do know that they will always be in the very best hands. Thanks for everything guys.. Love from Jackie, Poppy & Pickle and Family xxx”"
