About Meadow Hall Veterinary Practice...

Our professional and friendly Veterinary Practice in Pulborough

About us

We’re a down-to-earth, friendly independent veterinary surgery owned by local vet Sophie Hall. Offering excellent veterinary care in Thakeham, Abingworth, Warminghurst, West Chiltington, Storrington, and Pulborough areas, with access to a wide range of specialist services if required.

Not only this, but by supporting us you are truly shopping local as the money stays in the community. You see, we aren’t accountable to a Head Office and tiers of management, we’re only accountable to YOU!

All of our team are genuinely passionate about the care we give to you and your pet throughout their life.

Every pet is different and no one knows their pet better than their owner, so we take the time to get to know you and your pet. Sophie works with you to design a tailor-made treatment plan for your pet.

Because we know coming to the vets can cause your pet anxiety Sophie has created a purpose-built surgery with separate cat and dog waiting rooms, consultation rooms and wards.

Our Healthy Paws Clubs

Healthy Paws Club PLUS

We believe in treating your pet when an ailment is minor, before it become something major. That’s why Sophie created our Healthy Paws Club PLUS which includes unlimited consultations with a vet or nurse as well as vaccinations, flea, tick and wormer preventative treatment, nail clips, expression of anal glands and 10% off the range of food called “Specific”.

Healthy Paws Club

Listening to our customers is important to us, and with your input we’ve also created a more basic Healthy Paws Club which is simply for vaccinations, flea, tick and wormer preventative treatment.
