Small World Vet Centre
We are a progressive and ethical veterinary practice caring for the pets and wildlife of Liphook, just a couple of miles from where I grew up.
As the only independent vets in the area, we aim to provide a friendly and personal service tailored to each patient and their owner.
While your pet is always our first priority, we want our practice to make a genuinely positive impact on our community and the wider world.

New and exclusive:
Wellness plans with unlimited
Every pet is different – what they eat, where they go, what they do – so why should they be treated the same way?
Through our innovative wellness plans, we can use the latest diagnostic advances to assess your pet as an individual, providing tailored preventative healthcare.
All this while giving you BIG savings and making our corner of the planet a little healthier too.
Our standard consultations are 20 minutes, allowing plenty of time for a thorough ‘nose to tail’ clinical examination and a good chat about your pet.
We are always pleased to see the more unusual pets, with many birds, lizards, tortoises, snakes and small mammals as regular visitors.
If you find an injured wild animal, give us a call and we will always make arrangements to examine them – no charge.
Our pledge: Greener veterinary practice
We believe that the health of people, animals and the environment are all linked and must be considered as one. That’s why we hold our work on sustainability and preserving local ecosystems as central to our ethos as a veterinary practice.
Be sustainable in our operation
Every aspect of the practice is continually scrutinised to find new ways to improve our 'green' performance including insulation and low-energy lighting, using a renewable energy supplier, reducing waste, and offering specialist recycling of items we cannot avoid such as medicine blister packs.
Support local conservation
We are passionate about making a positive impact within our community and beyond, supporting a number of conservation projects both locally and globally such as the British Trust for Ornithology’s ground breaking radio-tracking to reveal the mystery of the migration of cuckoos.
Use medicines responsibly
We will only prescribe medication when necessary, and never without considering other forms of treatment, such as weight loss to alleviate arthritis and taking lifestyle into account before recommending parasite treatments.
Discover more about our birdsong
This magnificent dawn chorus was recorded by Phill at 5am on the 5th of May 2013 in Pond Copse, Chiddingfold. Prominent among the many calls are those of the cuckoo and chiff chaff, birds that fly thousands of miles to breed in the UK, but return in fewer numbers every year. Find out why, and how you can help by visiting the British Trust for Ornithology.
