About White Cross Vets

At White Cross Vets, we have 21 clinics across the UK. All of our clinics have teams with different interests, with team members undergoing or having undergone further training by certificate. Being part of a bigger group offers a fantastic level of support and allows us to grow and develop a higher quality first opinion pet care, whilst providing internal career progression opportunities.

Our Clinic Director has an internal medicine certificate and loves to tackle all aspect of soft tissue surgery.

The Hyde practice has a close link with our Walkden clinic with the Clinic Director at Hyde also being the Clinic Director at Walkden and this increases the services we can offer even further. At Walkden we have a vet currently undertaking a surgical certificate and also an Advanced Practitioner with an interest in Dermatology.

Further to this the Hyde practice has a strong nursing team with anaesthetic certificate holders, surgical certificate holders and a nurse with a keen interest in diagnostic imaging.

The Hyde practice has great facilities including 4 consult rooms, cat ward, dog ward, operating theatre, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, full in-house laboratory, ultrasound and access to endoscope if needed.
