We recognise that every client and their pet is unique, and we will work together to create a specific, preventative wellness programme with you. Our holistic approach ensures we focus on all aspects of your pets well-being and whilst integrating all aspects of medicine, nutrition and behaviour.
We will ensure that your dog, cat or rabbit will receive the most appropriate preventative vaccination protocol for their unique lifestyle and life stage. We tailor vaccine strategies to suit your individual pet’s needs, focusing on using core vaccinations, and we base our vaccine choices on the guidelines of the WSAVA, rather than manufacturer’s recommendations.

Our neutering protocol is based on all currently available information and we constantly update our practice policy based on the latest research. We aim to help you make an informed and joint decision about neutering and will guide you to supportive resources as required. You can be sure Douglas, Mike, and Catherine, our highly skilled surgeons, will treat your pets as individuals and will give you the best advice depending on your pet, their age and breed, and their behaviour.
For further information regarding neutering, please see our article.
Did you know it is a legal requirement for puppies to be microchipped by 8 weeks of age? This is not yet a requirement for cats though just as important. Dogs and cats are often brought to the clinic, after an unwanted adventure, and it is so rewarding to be able to call an anxious owner and reunite them with their loved one. One of our indoor cats got into their friendly builder’s van and took a 10-mile ride to his home. She escaped unnoticed and spent three weeks running around Esher until the delighted owner received a call when she was found and identified by her microchip.

Worms on the inside, ticks and fleas on the outside, old bugs and of late new European bugs! From the inconvenience of fleas to the potentially life-threatening lungworm infection parasite control programmes are an essential part of your pet’s routine healthcare. There is a constant evolution of the parasites we see in practice, given the extent of travelling, imported animals, and with climate change. Our vets and nurses provide the best advice in selecting the right product from the myriad of options available.
Our nurses, Sam and Ingrid, are extremely approachable, knowledgeable and compassionate, and as a resource for our clients are a tremendous asset. Whether it’s a nurse consultation or a quick phone call they are always here for support, and there is no question or concern that is too small. They love being a part of your journey with your pet and helping keep them as healthy and happy as you would want them.

Our team of experts offer the highest quality of care to our patientsMeet the team
We cannot praise Cape Veterinary Clinic highly enough for the care and support they gave when our cat was seriously ill. Our cat was cared for by Douglas Hall and we had the opportunity to talk to him daily, he also went above and beyond to help us out of hours which we will never forget. Coronavirus restrictions made the situation much harder but this was managed in an excellent way and didn’t diminish the ability to contact the clinic or for them to show real care and empathy on the phone. I couldn’t wish for a better veterinary clinic as the whole team, from the vets, to the nurses, to the reception team, all care so much about the animals but also the family at the other end. We would always recommend using Cape Vets - thank you.
Highly recommend. AMAZING vets and staff. We can’t thank enough you for all that you have done for our
The kindness and generosity of strangers. Douglas Hall did an emergency op on our dog Bella to extract a fractured tooth that is causing an abcess. We don't have a car so the Vet brought her home after the operation, keeping us safe by helping us avoid public transport during the time of COVID - 19.
Very kind and generous of you. Thank-you! You can count on our continued support.
I’ve not been registered with Cape Vets for long, but I’m so glad I am! Both my dogs have been seen there recently for two different issues and the services had been impeccable. I wanted a personal service, rather than the ‘bigger brands ‘ and you certainly get this here. Vets, nurses, and reception staff are all friendly and kind. This vets practice is more forward thinking to different aspects of animal care which is a huge plus for me, My dogs actually like going there to see the staff, thank you all for looking after Elsie and Stanley so well
They are amazing! Can't recommend the Cape Vets team highly enough after our crazy canine (Storm) upset an entire hive of bees who inflicted their angry, worst on him (20-25 stings).
I know he got the best love, care and attention because he now drags me into the surgery with a wonderful enthusiasm! They were super with me too and answered all my queries and concerns patiently allowing me to fully understand his predicament and recovery.
Storm is now fully recovered (though still has a fondness for buzzy things!)😉
I joined the Cape Veterinary Clinic 14 years ago when I rescued our first two cats and have since rescued two more. Throughout the highs and lows of pet ownership Douglas and his team have been nothing short of superb. I had no doubt I was receiving the best advice, but more than that I knew they all understood my cat's character because they had spent time getting to know her and tuning into her personality. She celebrated her 16th birthday last week and is back in the best of health. I have no hesitation in recommending this practise.
Fantastic vet clinic with the kindest staff. We sadly lost one of our pets recently and we had so much comfort and support. Sam (the Head vet nurse) was amazing and I’d definitely recommend this vet clinic to all pet owners.
