Mobile Vets in Newcastle and North East

More convenient for owners, less stress for pets

We are a mobile vet practice, bringing the consulting room to your doorstep.

Many conditions and services can be successfully treated and managed at home. So why not save you and your pet the stress and time of visiting a practice and let us come to you?

Vet practices are busier than ever. Post pandemic many practices do not offer home visits; those that do often charge a lot.

Doorstep Vet offers a convenient, affordable service straight to your door.

We come to your home in a modern, custom-built van which functions as a mobile consulting room, reducing the stress and time associated with in-clinic appointments.

We offer a range of services including vaccinations, GP checks, senior health checks and end of life care. For anything that falls outside our scope we have a network of local practices that we actively work with to ensure the best possible care for your pet.

How is Doorstep Vet different?

Having worked in clinical practice over the past 20 years and witnessed a great deal of change, we understand clearly the challenges that both owners and vets face in today’s environment.

Longer appointments

We are fortunate to be able to offer appointments that are longer than usual, giving us plenty of time to get to know you and your pet and explain everything thoroughly.

Great continuity

We know how frustrating it is to keep seeing a different person every time you visit a practice. 

We are a small team, so continuity of care is excellent  – you see the same vet and we get to know your pet personally.

Convenient and modern service

Life is busy; getting round to ordering and collecting your pet’s medication is yet another thing to have to remember. 

Our service as simple and user-friendly as possible, from online prescription ordering (no more waiting on hold!) to (coming soon!) home delivery for medications. 

This, together with easy online payment options, means our service is well equipped for today’s digital age.

When you register with us you have the option of creating your own online “pet portal” via our website.

We provide you with access to your pet’s records, so you can see key info such as appointment summaries, medication and vaccination dates. 

This is especially useful in an emergency as it gives other vets access to key information about your pet, as well as helping you to keep track of your pet’s health.

Proudly independent

Being a small, independent mobile vet means that we have complete freedom to refer and seek specialist help from the amazing network of practices in our region and further afield, tailoring this to you and your pet’s needs.

I am thrilled with the service I get from Jo and Sarah. I get an in depth consultation which is much, much better than my former practice. They spend a lot of time with my cats finding out exactly where the problems are. They are thoroughly professional as well as kind and caring. Transporting my cats to a vetinary practice had become a real problem for me. Now I no longer have to worry. They really are the very best.

We used Doorstep Vet by default but it turned out to be what we would have wanted and wished for as we said goodbye to a very special member of our family….from my initial conversation with Sarah for making it possible at short notice to come to the house and Jo for giving up her time on a day when she wasn’t at work and making a very difficult day bearable….as a family we would like to thank Sarah and Jo for their professionalism empathy and compassion shown to our 13year old Black Labrador Bella and to us… I cannot recommend them highly enough….

I had to have my dear cat put to sleep. Sarah and Jo were fantastic and spent a long time explaining the process and giving me time to say goodbye. They were so caring and supportive.I cannot recommend Doorstep Vet highly enough. Thank you so much.

Sarah and Jo were absolutely fantastic. We had our cat peacefully put to sleep in his own bed. This is never easy, but the way they conducted it was impeccable and they were so sensitive, warm and kind. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Thank you so much to Jo and Sarah of Doorstep Vets who could not have been more accommodating of our short notice request to attend our house to euthanise our beloved family dog who declined quickly in the end with a terminal condition. They were absolutely compassionate and professional and made the whole sad event easier to bear and gave us the lovely, peaceful ending we had hoped for. I am quite certain having met them that they would be a perfect GP vet to establish a great long term relationship with too. Many thanks to them.
