About Heathside Vets

Heathside Veterinary Surgery

Vet in Locks Heath

Heathside Veterinary Surgery is managed by Jeremy Giles along with five experienced colleagues and a dedicated nursing team. The practice strives to provide excellent clinical care and a friendly personal service for the local community and their pets.

Heathside was established in 1998 and has recently extended the premises to accommodate the increased demands and services we provide. We have been an approved nurse training practice since 1999 and have successfully trained many veterinary nurses over the years, all passing their exams the first time around.

We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and to this end, we provide a high standard of preventative health care and advice, as well as the very best medical and surgical care.

We are ideally located in Locks Heath and have clients utilising our services from Whiteley, Park Gate, Titchfield, Warsash, Sarisbury Green, Fareham, Stubbington, Lee On Solent and Gosport. Some even travel from as far afield as Bournemouth and London, who we have known for many years.

This Practice is so professional, caring and friendly. The Reception staff are so knowledgeable and attentive. Mario was excellent with my rescue dog, made us both feel at ease, explained everything that I needed to know in detail. I cannot recommend this Veterinary practice enough. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nice friendly staff. One owner allowed in with their pet/s due to Covid restrictions which is sensible. Parking for at least 4 cars on site. Very happy with care and services provided so far. I recommend them!

Really lovely Vet service and very professional and friendly. We started using them 7 years ago when we had an emergency accident with “Harmony” and have never looked back, after receiving great emergency care with honest advice, although we are slightly out of area, have stayed with Heathside.

What a wonderful place! You can not ask for anymore than what they deliver. very professional and very high standards. And I reckon they are the most reliable around for prices. Would definitely recommend and ill definitely use again. I had a c section on my French bulldog and we paid under £900.00 I was quoted £2000.00 to £4000.00. Tristan was our vet id say he's absolutely superb. Thank you Heath side.

Very professional veterinary practice with really good staff. We attend 6 monthly with two cats for routine check up and injections.It would be nice if there was a covered outdoor area for customers waiting for their animals during Covid since we are not allowed inside.

Thank you so much to Heathside Vets and their amazing staff, who looked after our much loved terrier. Over night, Red couldn't put weight on one of his paws and appeared to be in pain. The staff quickly made an appointment for us and we were seen within an hour of making the call. After some investigation, it was discovered that he had an infection from stepping on something in the garden.The staff and service from the practice was fantastic, especially from Vet Tris and Nurse Sophie Lumb. They both stood out for their amazing team work and bedside manner. Tris gave honest advice on how to treat Red and we felt we could call on him should we have any worries. Sophie was empathetic and eased our nerves with regards to administering medicine and his after care. We even received a follow up call from her on a Sunday. They are a credit to your great team. Thank you Heathside for taking care of our beloved pet.

Thursday was the hardest day for me and my family. We had to say goodbye to our baby Jet, after 13 years. I can’t recommend Heathside enough. Our family decided to have this done at home, it wasn’t a simple visit Jeramy. He was with us for over an hour and a half. They had to much care and compassion for us and Jet and our other animals. Thank you!

I can not thank Heathside and all the team enough - not only for the outstanding care to my dog throughout but to me as a concerned dog mum. I have had the pleasure of having David the vet throughout most of the care and treatments - he is caring, thorough in what he explains, and patient with any questions I have. All the nurses and receptionists are so caring and friendly too. I had Candice greet my dog and I before surgery yesterday morning and she really put my dog and I at ease. Thank you all so much for everything x

I would just like to say a big thank you for taking good care of my darling 16 yr old Toby, I have just collected his ashes and he’s in the sweetest casket, back home where he belongs. You made the whole process as easy as it can be, and I’m happy my boy went peacefully at home. Thanks again Faye. 💔🌈💕
