At Blythman & Partners we provide you and your pet with the highest standards of care and service; 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

All patients in need of special treatment and hospitalisation are cared for at our Gosforth surgery, where experienced and dedicated nursing staff work throughout the day and night to care for your pet and monitor its progress. Your pet will never be left alone in the surgery overnight.

Should you need to telephone the surgery outside normal working hours, your call will be answered in person by one of our nurses.

We are one of the few remaining veterinary practices who continue to provide their own out of hours emergency service. If your pet requires emergency treatment you will always be seen by one of our own veterinary surgeons, whatever the time, day or night.


Every branch of Blythman & Partners offers a wide range of services including vaccinations, flea and worm treatment, free puppy and kitten checks, dietary advice and weight clinics, dental clinics, elderly pet checks, behaviour clinics and pet passports.

We also routinely have puppy parties where you will be given healthcare and training advice as well as the opportunity to socialise your puppy with others of a similar age.

Some of the diagnostic and surgical services available to our clients include fully-equipped operating theatres at every branch, dental equipment, radiography, ultrasonography, endoscopy, ECG and in-house laboratories.


We are proud to announce that our Gosforth practice has been awarded hospital status by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and all of our other surgeries are RCVS-accredited.

To obtain this accreditation, the standards of the staff, the training, the equipment and the premises must be exceedingly high in order to pass the numerous inspections and satisfy the RCVS.

As clients of Blythman & Partners, you can rest assured that your pet is in very capable hands and being treated in the best possible environment, day or night.
