About Us

Welcome to our White Cross Vets Manchester Walkden practice where our team of caring pet experts are waiting to help take care of your dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets.

Learn more about your local White Cross Vets...

White Cross Vets has more than 80 years’ experience of caring for pets and when you bring your pet to us, you can trust that your pet is in good hands.

Our Manchester Walkden practice, which you’ll find on Mayfield Avenue, is open six days a week. We’re here from 8.30am to 7pm on Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 12.30pm on Saturdays.

The practice staff are a close team who all share a love of pets with a big collection between them including a variety of breeds of cats and dogs. Nurse Kristie, for example, has a French bulldog called Scrumples who she loves walking in all weathers. Nurse Becky has a Bengal cat called Ninja. Clinic director and vet Anna shares her home with Marlo the cat and Phoebe the dog, both rescue pets. Veterinary care assistant Lucy is the proud owner of Figo the cat and head nurse Dan has a whole menagerie including Eric, a Dogue de Bordeaux dog, Rumple the French bulldog and Wizard, Rumple’s pup.

So as you’ll see, the team understands how important your pet is to you – because they know how important their own pets are to them.

Services

The facilities at our Manchester Walkden vet practice include an operating theatre equipped for anaesthetics, digital x-ray, in-house laboratory (we get results in minutes rather than days to help with a speedy diagnosis), dentistry equipment, an ultrasound and a blood pressure monitor. This means the team can carry out a full range of treatments on-site.

Our surgery has been designed to make your pet comfortable. We use a combination of pheromones, special lighting and music to make your pet’s visit as calm as possible.

Our highly-trained team has a wide range of skills and interests – please ask for more details.

If you have any concerns about your pet, please call 0161 799 5557 to chat with one of our team or book a free health check.

Community work

We’re proud to take our place in the Manchester and Walkden communities and we try to give something back whenever we can.

We always treat all school pets for free and the team visits local schools to inspire the pupils to become the vets of the future and teach them how to look after their pets. Head nurse Danielle visits local schools to teach responsible pet care including Mesne Lea Primary School in Walkden (where we treat their school guinea pigs for free) and St Paul’s Heathside Grove Primary School in Walkden where we check up on our patients Bubble and Squeak the guinea pigs.

We also treat any wildlife that is brought into our practice for free, and we support our local client Sue who rescues hedgehogs and brings them to us for treatment and TLC before releasing them back into the wild.

We give every team member five ‘donation days’ each year so that they can spend time volunteering for a charitable cause of their choice and, because we care for those who care, we offer a 10% discount to all employees of the NHS, emergency services and armed forces to say thank you for all that they do.

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

– Dental ultrasonic cleaning and polishing  £99*

– Dental with extractions £199*

– Rabbit dental package £120*

*Please note that these prices do not include blood tests or digital X-rays.

Please note that all pets on the Complete Wellness Plan will receive 20% off all dental procedures.

An absolute brilliant vet and I would recommend very highly that anyone with a pet should go there!!

    - 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

  • "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."

  • "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”"
