About us


Mildmay Veterinary Hospital is a premier practice in a convenient location on the edge of Winchester. Established over 40 years ago, Mildmay was initially a mixed animal practice based in the centre of the city. It was acquired by CVS (UK) Limited in 2006 and operates as part of this larger group of veterinary practices and veterinary service providers. The practice now specialises in the treatment of companion animals from a purpose built surgery. We also have a friendly branch surgery in Overton.

The team

Our team of 27 is led by Clinical Directors Nikki Hoad and Melanie Norris. Our experienced vets have special interests and additional qualifications, holding certificates in cardiology, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery and internal medicine. Our dedicated team of nurses pride themselves on looking after our patients as if they were their own pets. We are also proud to be a nurse training practice.


We are unique in Winchester in having a hydrotherapy pool within the practice. This allows us to offer rehabilitation of animals following orthopaedic or spinal surgery. Hydrotherapy is also used to help animals lose weight or for exercise. We are able to take referrals from other practices for this service.

Our facilities

The practice has a fully equipped preparation room, operating theatre, modern anaesthetic and monitoring equipment and our in-house laboratory allows us to run blood and urine samples for rapid results.

We have up-to-date diagnostic equipment such as X-ray, ultrasound scanner and endoscopy allowing us to quickly recognise and treat your pet’s condition.

With separate dog and cat wards and a separate isolation ward our nurses are able to give the best possible nursing care whilst your pets are hospitalised within the practice.

We work alongside the emergency veterinary service providers Vets Now. They work at Mildmay to see urgent cases outside normal hours and look after our patients that need to be hospitalised overnight. This means sick animals do not need to be moved at the end of the working day but have round the clock veterinary care on site, giving peace of mind to worried owners.
