Widnes veterinary practice

All our team members are also pet owners, so they know how to look after pets properly and give great advice. As part of the White Cross Vets commitment to giving something back, we treat all school pets for free. Archie and his team makes regular visits to local schools to talk to young people about caring for pets.

The White Cross Widnes vets practice opened in August 2016 on Fir Park, next to the Observatory pub in Upton Rocks. The practice has been purpose built with dogs, cats and bunnies in mind to reduce stress levels.

There is plenty of parking at the practice so it is easy to drop by, meet the team and we'd like to take you on a tour of our practice so you can see where your pet will be treated. We offer a wide range of convenient appointment times, available six days per week. We hope to see you and your pets soon.

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.

"Truly outstanding service and care. They listened to my situation and went beyond, what I could have expected at short notice, to help. My dog has been very well cared for by all the staff, I felt safe and confident leaving her for surgery and she was exceptionally well when I collected her. I came home with pain relief and a gorgeous, personally signed, get well soon card with post operative care instructions included. They've arranged follow up appointments at convenient times too. I can't thank them enough! Highly recommend."

- Christine Roche

"We took our old English mastiff as she was having problems with her legs , they were brill, unfortunately yesterday we had to take her back due to her having fits, unfortunately due to her age and other things we had to have her put to sleep, again we can not fault the vet and nurse , receptionist they stayed with us until the end and even give us time with poppy to say our goodbyes once she had gone xx"

- Caroline Sheridan

"I came home today from an exhausting day at work and was so touched when I opened the post and in one envelope was a beautiful, handwritten, thoughtful card of condolence from the White Cross Vets. Included in the card was a packet a forget-me-not flower seeds to plant in my garden in memory of Annie. The sentiments expressed in the card were so touching and thoughtful and to know that somebody took the time out of their busy schedule to put pen to paper to make me feel better, really brightened my day. Thank you ever so much, it really means a lot. You asked also about Annie's sister Elsie too, she's a little sad at the moment without her sister, so I will be getting another bunny playmate for her and I will certainly be bringing him or her to be looked after by yourselves. Thank you once again, what an amazing bunch of professionals ? xxxx"

- Lucy Owen

"Brilliant took my little girls hamster on monday, lovely people and don't rip you off ?"

- Donna Hulme

"Where to start really - we could not as a family or pet owner have asked for more - thank you so much for your kindness, care and obvious love of working with animals who are so dear to us all as pets.
Sadly we had to bring our Big Fella - Oscar - big white boxer - into find out why he was not himself last few weeks and got the news sadly no pet owner wants to hear - I know he was a big ole fella but sadly prognosis was not a good one.
But each and everyone from the Receptionist to nurses to vets - especially Louise really really helped us and of course Oscar. To make that final decision is heart wrenching, gutting and we are heart broken losing him but they all helped us make his final journey peaceful, dignified and so so so supportive. And for that there are no words to say how much appreciated and thankful we are to you all.
Louise you are a star and wonderful - thank you - Oscar meant so much to us and he has left a huge big gap but you helped us and supported us and we could ask for no more than that.
Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts - Jardine Family on Old Upton Lane."

- Sharon Jardine

"Fantastic vets!! Louise is a wonderful caring vet! Would definitely recommend ?"

Vet nurse at reception was really friendly and helpful helping us in with all the carriers and sorting health plans. Then vet was lovely and patient with all the cats.
