We have two branches in Gosport and Stubbington, so you are never far from an Alver Veterinary Group branch. We offer a caring and compassionate service to the furry members of your family. We will greet you with a smile and do our best to understand your needs as well as those of your pet. We offer appointments from 8.30am to 8pm on weekdays, and also have appointments on Saturdays.

Our practice was founded in 1965 in Gosport, Hampshire, by veterinary surgeon Nick Bray MRCVS, who retired in January 2000.

Over the years the practice has expanded, and today we have many dedicated veterinary surgeons within our hardworking team.

Alver Veterinary Group was acquired by CVS (UK) Limited on 18 March 2013 and now operates as part of this larger group of veterinary practices and veterinary service providers.
