We are open for essential care only
In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.
We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:
- If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
- Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
- Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
- We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
- If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.
We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

After qualifying from Bristol Vet School in 1994, I spent over 5 years in a mixed practice in Suffolk dealing with small animals and horses. During this time I gained my certificate in Veterinary Radiology. I then moved to a small animal hospital practice in the New Forest where I developed my interests in imaging, internal medicine and dentistry before joining Companion Care in 2008 and opening the Southampton surgery.
I have 4 dogs called, Mopsy, Polly, Phoebe and Hazel, a horse called Alfie and one husband called David. When not working I like to relax by horse riding and walking in the New Forest.
Becca joined us in July 2018 after 5 years hard work and passing her final exams. When not at work Becca spends her time riding her horse Walter and walking her dog Murphy.
