Brighton Veterinary Hospital

Home/ Brighton Veterinary Hospital

Providing the highest standard of veterinary care

Whether you need a routine vet appointment for your cat’s annual booster vaccine, or an emergency vet at 3am for a poorly pet, our Brighton veterinary hospital can help. We opened our first surgery in Kemp Town in 1976 with just one vet. Today Brighton is our largest surgery and is also home to our exotic veterinary team, emergency out-of-hours vets and referral services. Our extensive hospital has separate cat, dog and exotics wards to care for the individual needs of all our patients and is open 24 hours a day every day of the year. We also have our own on-site laboratory, which saves us time waiting on test results and enables us to get on with treating your pet quickly.

We’re sorry, but we are unable to accept any new clients at this, or any of our other surgeries at this time.

Covid-19: Service for our Brighton Clinic

We have now welcomed clients back into the surgery following the relaxation of lockdown restrictions. Please be aware that the continuation of social distancing means we’re only able to offer limited appointments, so it’s really important for all clients to check in on time at the surgery. If you are more than five minutes late you will be asked to reschedule your appointment for another day. To minimise the numbers of people in our building at any time we are asking for only one person to accompany the pet for its appointment. During the appointment, please maintain social distancing and wear a face mask. Appointments are available for vaccinations, neutering and most routine issues. Our Nurses and Laser Clinics are also open and our Referral Clinics for Dermatology and Physiotherapy.

Requests for repeat prescriptions, parasite control and food, can be emailed to [email protected]. For all other enquiries, email [email protected].

Building work

There will be building work commencing Wednesday 28th for improvements to the practice.  Our entrance to the surgery will now be through the main doors with a one-way system in place. 

We apologise for any possible inconvenience caused.

“We’ve used Coastway Vets in Kemp Town for a few years with our elderly rescue bearded dragon first and now a baby. The exotic vet Celine has been amazing the whole way through. She was great during the last month’s of our old boy’s life, providing us with much more care and advice than we paid for, and the same now with the baby. The reception staff are also very helpful, so definitely recommend them.”
