About Larkmead Vets

Larkmead Vets is a fiercely independent, Small Animal veterinary practice, with a dedicated team who go the extra mile whenever possible. We have been providing veterinary care and advice to pet owners as well as the local farming and equine community since the 1960s. You can rest assured that as an independent practice, we always put the needs of our patients first and provide the highest standards of care.

You and your pets will receive a very warm welcome from the friendly and caring staff at our five branches across South Oxfordshire.

  • Our main surgeries at Cholsey and Didcot have extensive modern hospitalisation facilities, and are well equipped to deal with a wide range of animal healthcare needs. We provide our own 24/7 emergency vet services from Didcot.
  • Our branch surgeries in Great Western Park, Benson, and Sutton Courtenay aim to provide convenient consultations locally, with surgical and hospitalisation facilities within easy reach at the main surgeries.
