Since being opened in 1996 we've invested heavily in state of art facilities to better serve our patients and their owners. We've gone from strength to strength thanks to the support of the local pet owning community. Within the practice we carry out all the services that you'd expect from a RCVS accredited small animal practice and support neighbouring practices with referral cases. We also have the facilities for visiting specialists in dermatology and ophthalmology.

We have practices in Risca and Langstone which together provide veterinary care for pets all over the Newport and Gwent area. Pet owners choose us because of our individual attention to their pet, and because we take the time to make sure that wherever possible every experience for their best friend is a positive one. Our consultations are longer than average which means that our vets and nurses can be more thorough. Alphavet is owned and run by a vet, fewer and fewer practices these days are able to say that.
