Grove Lodge Veterinary Hospital, built in Worthing, West Sussex in 1958, was one of the first private veterinary hospitals in the country and is still one of only a small number on the South Coast, with branches across East and West Sussex in Brighton, Portslade, Southwick, Lancing, Tarring and Durrington.
The wealth of expertise offered by our vets ensures we are one of the best first opinion and referral hospitals in the South East. We are also very pleased to be able to offer laparoscopic spaying at our Brighton and Worthing surgeries. We provide veterinary referrals to clients from all over the country, not just East and West Sussex, for specialities as follows:
- acupuncture (cases seen by Suzannah Stacey at our Durrington branch, Palatine Road)
- dermatology (cases seen by Anita Patel at our West Worthing branch, Tarring Road)
- internal medicine
- ophthalmology (including cataract surgery)
- small animal surgery (including laparoscopic spaying at our Brighton branch & Hospital in Worthing)
Grove Lodge Vets has always been a pioneering veterinary practice and we now have more than 100 members of staff working at 7 locations across Sussex, from Brighton to Durrington. We are extremely proud of the qualifications and commitment of all our staff.
Our philosophy is to be the best possible first-call practice with 24 hour cover at all times, with continuing investment in our Hospital and branch surgeries. The maintenance of such high standards enables us to diagnose and treat all the common complaints that pets are likely to suffer, effectively, efficiently and economically, as well as rare and serious conditions requiring specialised knowledge and equipment.
As a Practice, Grove Lodge Vets enjoys being involved in our local community. We are delighted to work alongside many local charities, including the RSPCA at Patcham, nr Brighton, East Sussex. Every year, the team at our Brighton branch joins in with their annual Open Day at Patcham with a stall and Grand Dog Show held at the Centre in Patcham, near Brighton.
We are very proud that in March 2013 we won the award for Best Veterinary Surgery at the prestigious annual Burgess Wetnose Animal Rescue Awards in recognition of our work with local charities and our community in general. We are delighted to work closely with Worthing and District Animal Rescue Service (WADARS), Dogs Trust Shoreham, Cats Protection and Lumpy Lodge and love taking part in local events for these charities, including the WADARS Wagathon, Dogs Trust Open Day, Worthing Carnival and the Worthing Cats Protection Quiz to name but a few!
