Expert care from your village vet

We opened our Rottingdean village surgery in 1994. Positioned in the village centre, just minutes from the sea, it’s become a familiar landmark for local residents. It’s headed by Andreas Schemel who as well as being a busy vet, is also our cardiology specialist, an international pedigree judge and Crufts Head Vet.

Our Rottingdean staff all live nearby and offer a huge amount of experience and expertise from what is one of our smaller sites. Consultations, minor operations, Nurses Clinics and their clubs for elderly, overweight pets and those with mobility issues, all take place here. There’s a car park on Marine Drive, just two minutes from our door, the cost of which we refund when you have an appointment, up to the price of one hour’s parking.

“Really lovely reception staff. Nothing is too much trouble. Genuinely interested in your pet and happy to talk to the owners and get to know you. The Vet himself is friendly and kind and very patient. He explains everything clearly and seems pleased to meet your pet and remembers you when you return. Brilliant offer to pay a monthly amount and get free 6 monthly checkups and flea and worm treatments included.”
