Over 22,000 pet owners have trusted AlphaPet with their animals and we're here to help you too!
Hello there! My name is Richard Edwards and I am one of the principle vets here at AlphaPet. There are loads of reasons why you should come and visit us and I really hope I get to meet you soon.
After watching my uncle perform a sheep caesarian during an interrupted Christmas lunch in 1971, I was hooked! From that day on, I always knew I wanted to be a vet.
I qualified in 1989 and ever since, my goals have been to help keep your cherished companions fit and healthy, whilst caring for sick pets (and wildlife) until they are better.
In 1993, I decided to set up my own practice, AlphaPet Veterinary Clinics, establishing an AlphaPet vets in Chichester and an AlphaPet vets in Bognor Regis. The original AlphaPet Bognor vets remains at West Meads and our AlphaPet Chichester vets is in Birdham. In 2002, we took over another Chichester vets practice at Lavant to form the current group of three closely linked practices. Over the last 23 years, we have cared for over 70,000 pets in the Chichester, Bognor Regis, Selsey, Witterings and Bracklesham areas.
Every pet we have seen during this time, and that we will see in the future, has been treated as if they were our own. All of our staff have pets, so we know how important they are as members of the family! Me personally, I currently have 3 dogs, 6 cats, 16 goats & 3 Soay sheep (all pets - my family is pescetarian!), a pony, 4 peacocks and a lot of Indian stick insects!
You want your pet to be provided with exceptional care and I passionately believe that this can only come from an independent group of veterinary practices - that are not driven by shareholders and profits - but purely by quality of care, value and clinical excellence.
That is exactly what AlphaPet Veterinary Clinics offer you.
In an emergency, especially when your pet is seriously sick or injured, you want to visit your local practice and to see your normal vet as quickly as possible. That is why AlphaPet is continuing to offer its own in-house out of hours emergency service at our Bognor vets surgery in West Meads; to ensure that, in these situations, your pet is offered the same exceptional level of veterinary care.
So that's something about me and the background to why over 22,000 pet owners have trusted AlphaPet with their pets in our first 23 years. But if you want to know some more about us or to register your pet, why not visit us today?
