Oxford Kitten

Welcome to Oxford’s Hilltop Vets!

Oxford Vets - SurgeryThe latest Oxford Vets is now open.

Julie and Anna are over the moon to be able to welcome Oxford’s pets and their families to our brand new, purpose built, veterinary centre. Avoid the city centre traffic, park easily and enjoy beautiful views at our super convenient site on top of Hinksey Hill!

Both local mums with a menagerie of their own animals, Julie and Anna have over 30 years combined experience in veterinary medicine; Julie as a Veterinary Surgeon and Anna as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.  Hilltop is a joint vision where each patient and their family will be treated as individuals and where you can expect to see the same friendly faces at every visit.  At Hilltop we are committed to providing gold standard treatment alongside supporting our patients’ wellbeing at every life stage.

Our whole team has been handpicked to provide the kind of compassionate care that your four-legged (or three-legged, finned or feathered) friends deserve.  After all, state-of-the-art equipment, luxury accommodation and veterinary know-how might provide peace of mind, but are nothing without a smile and a kind pair of hands!

With our resident Specialist Surgeon, you can rest assured that even the most complex orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery is in expert hands, with no need to travel long distances to access world leading care when you need it most.

As one of the newest Oxford Vets our brand new hospitalisation facilities cater for all our patients, large and small. With three ‘walk-in’ kennels for larger dogs, as well as units for small and medium sized dogs, there is room for all our canine patients. The nearby Nature Trail offers a scenic place to stretch their legs before or after their visit to the vets.

We understand our feline patients have different needs to our canine friends.  Our cat friendly surgery features our unique ‘cat house’ in which your cat can relax on arrival, a dedicated cat-only consulting room, luxury cat-only accommodation and all the cat-specific equipment and medication you would expect.

Rabbits and smaller pets are not forgotten here at Hilltop, we even have a healthcare plan just for them!

Of course we will always be here for you when your pet is injured or unwell, with qualified vets and nurses providing appointments (including evenings and weekends), inpatient care or on the end of the phone when you just need a bit of advice.  But we believe that preventing health and behaviour problems is just as important as fixing them.  Our aim is to keep Oxford’s pets in tip top condition so they can enjoy happy, healthy lives.  Please talk to us about our PAW and VIP plans, which provide for all your pet’s routine health needs while saving you money.

Join us for a coffee!

Owner of Morrissey

Thank you very much for your excellent care of Morrissey. I think you have a wonderful rapport with animals and an excellent way of explaining their illnesses to anxious humans. The care and attention that Morrissey has received has been outstanding.

Terry and Vicki
Owners of Poppy & Tallulah

On the occasions we have needed veterinary care, Julie has impressed us with level of care, expertise and attention given, not only to our pets but ourselves. We would have no hesitation to recommend her to any owner – and have done so!

Miss Humphrey
Owner of Lexi

As a vet I believe you were like my doctor, someone who not only treated your illness but took the time to get to know the patient and then to be able to diagnose treatments more applicable to your illness […] Made it feel more personal an experience

Julie has taken brilliant care of our two cats and new puppy. Our eldest cat, Teddy, was very poorly for an extended period of time and Julie was so helpful in weaning him off some very vile (to Teddy’s taste!) medicine. Teddy is fine now as is our puppy – who had a fab holiday on the continent last summer after Julie’s help with her passport.

What an amazing place – state of the art, purpose built veterinary surgery on a hill top and with such skilled, empathetic and kind staff. Thank you all so much!!

our team

The staff at Hilltop Veterinary centre welcome you and your pet to our purpose built surgery in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. We are all proud to be members of the Hilltop Team, and the veterinary profession as a whole, and are privileged to get to spend our days with the patients we love.

We’ll get to know lots about you and your pets over your time with us, but we thought it would be nice if you knew a little about us too.

Our Promise

We are dedicated to providing your pet with the best veterinary care we possibly can.  We believe that each and every pet and owner, deserve to be treated with kindness and respect.

We aim to fulfil this promise just as well at 6pm on a Friday as we do at 9am on a Monday.  We know having a sick pet can be frightening.  Even a routine vet visit can be stressful and, let’s face it, inconvenient when you have plenty of other things you would rather be doing instead!

So let’s work together to keep your pet well and see how many wags, purrs and smiles we can find along the way!

Oxford Vets - Animals


We always love to know how we’re doing!

Tuesday 8.30am – 6.30pm

As we expand we hope be able to offer a 24/7 service at some time in the future – watch this space!


Hilltop Vets Labrador

We have taken great care to ensure that our hospital accommodation will meet your pet’s needs and make them feel at home.  Our holistic approach prioritises the comfort and wellbeing of our inpatients throughout their stay.  With separate air conditioned rooms for dogs and cats, three dedicated areas to house particularly large dogs, a separate insolation unit and a shower room, whatever the shape or size of your pet we have the perfect spot for them!

In our dog ward, each kennel is lined with soft padded bedding. Gentle music (or even the television!) can be played in the background, creating that home from home feeling for our canine companions.

Our feline friends are not left out.  Each cat ‘condo’ is made of a scratch resistant, antibacterial polymer (which is much nicer for little paws than traditional metal flooring) and contains cat ‘furniture’ so your cat has somewhere to relax.  A Feliway diffuser in the cat ward also helps our feline patients feel safe and secure in their temporary home.

Treatment restrictions allowing, we may ask you to bring in some of your pet’s favourite toys, bedding or food.  A range of non-prescription and prescription foods are available, and are offered as appropriate to each patient.  Please let us know which type of food your pet enjoys at home.

Supporting Charities

At Hilltop Veterinary Centre we are passionate about helping animals from all backgrounds and circumstance. We are currently working hard to establish relationships with charities both near and far and will be running lots of fundraising activities in the future.
