Our 25th Anniversary Year!

2018 marks AlphaPet's 25th anniversary! Can you believe it? We can't! It only seems like yesterday that we started up in a disused video shop in the West Meads shopping precinct just outside Bognor Regis, and a converted chicken shed at Birdham!

Starting with just Richard Edwards, Sandra Leatherdale, Katie Rook and Andrea Hogg, 25 years later we employ over 50 staff including 13 vets and 15 qualified nurses across three surgeries. We are a full RCVS Accredited Hospital practice - the only one locally.

It's been a lot of hard work getting to this point but it's definitely been worthwhile. We've been instrumental in raising the standards of pet healthcare and wildlife care locally - something we are very proud of. In a profession which is becoming increasingly dominated by profitdriven corporate-owned practices, we intend to continue as an independent practice, offering the very best value for money pet healthcare to our clients
