About Us

Welcome to our modern Widnes vet practice where our helpful and expert team are waiting to care for your dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets.

Learn more about your local White Cross Vets...

White Cross Vets is a friendly practice that has more than 80 years’ experience of caring for pets.

Our Widnes practice on Queensbury Way is open six days a week. Our opening hours are 8.30am to 7pm from Monday to Friday and 8.30am to 12.30pm on a Saturday.

All the members of our pet-loving team own a pet of their own and so they understand what an important member of your family your pet is. We’re an active lot who like to be on the go and of course spending time with our precious pets – a grand total of 11 pets.

You’ll often find nurse Chloe riding her horse Toots for example and our client care co-ordinator Rachel is another keen horse rider and dog walker. Archie, the clinic director and vet enjoys cooking, spending time with his family and walking their dogs Maggie and Dottie. Client care co-ordinator Tina also spends time walking her dog – when she’s not watching her son play football. Vet Louise likes to keep fit at the gym and doing Zumba.

Keep an eye on what our team has been up to – and meet some of our patients – on our practice Facebook page.

Services

Visitors to our Widnes veterinary practice can rest assured that our practice is stocked with the latest equipment and that our team are well trained and passionate about helping your pets.

Our practice is purpose built so we were able to design it in a way that keeps your pets’ stress levels to a minimum. The state-of-the-art equipment we have onsite includes an operating theatre, digital x-ray, in-house laboratory (so we only need to wait minutes for results rather than days) and a blood pressure monitor.

The team has a range of specialisms and expertise. Vet Louise, for example, has a special interest in medicine and as she has experienced losing a family pet firsthand, she is passionate about providing the best possible end of life care. Vet and clinic director Archie specialises in soft tissue surgery and nurse Chloe is known for running some of the best nurse consultations in the whole of Widnes and helping pets with osteoarthritis. Veterinary nurse Helen specialises in theatre and, when it comes to our human visitors, our wonderful client care team Tina and Rachel are on hand to look after you during your visit,

If you have any concerns about your pet, please call the team on 0151 305 7333.

Community work

White Cross Vets Widnes is committed to making a difference to our community and doing whatever we can to help all our friends – large and small, hairy and human!

We encourage our team to make a difference to our community by giving every team member five ‘donation days’ each year so that they can spend time volunteering for a charitable cause of their choice. Nurse Chloe and client care co-ordinator Rachel raise money for Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley and jumped out of a plane (thankfully with a parachute) to raise £2,500. Other charities we support include Cancer Research UK, Cats Protection in St Helens and the local Dog’s Trust centre in Whiston. Nurse Chloe and her dog Skye volunteer with Pets As Therapy attending local hospitals, hospices and nursing homes.

We’re proud to be able to say that we treat all school pets and wildlife for free and that 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.

Local area

Our Widnes practice in Cheshire is proud to help care for pets in Widnes and the nearby communities of Runcorn, Huyton and Warrington.

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 with extractions (all-inclusive) £299
This price includes: blood tests, general anaesthetic, fluids, medication and unlimited digital dental X-rays

– Rabbit dental package (all-inclusive) £125
This price includes: general anaesthetic, fluids, medication, dental X-rays and post op feeding

Our all-inclusive dental packages give you peace of mind that you can provide your pet with the best dental care without being surprised by any hidden costs. Please note that all pets on the Complete Wellness Plan will receive 20% off all dental procedures.

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.

  • "We took Rosie, our mini poodle, to see Louise this afternoon and Louise was brilliant with her. Rosie suffers from fear anxiety and Louise handled her so gentle and she got down to Rosie's level on the floor and examined her back legs and spine thoroughly. She knew exactly how to cope with Rosie and Rosie responded to Louise and she came out of there without any fear anxiety at all. She is at home now and completely relaxed which is the complete opposite to the state she would come out of our former vets in. I can't thank Louise enough for making Rosie's vet visit a happy one. White Cross vets look after your pet with love and care, they do care so much and it's lovely to find such a caring vet practice. I would like to thank everyone at White Cross for making our visits a lot less stressful. Thank you Louise."

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."

    - 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"

    - 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 ?"
