On-Site Vets

CASVet Logo


CASVet is extending its opening times from Monday 15th June 2020.

Appointments are available for all cases and vaccinations.

From Monday 15th June 2020 we will also be carrying out routine surgery, including dog, cat, rabbit spays/castrates and routine dentistry.

In order to minimise risk to staff at CASVet and Cheltenham Animal Shelter, we will be maintaining social distancing so all visitors must remain in the car park as only members of staff are allowed into the building.

This significantly affects the amount of time that each appointment takes (15-20 minutes rather than 5-10 minutes) and consequently during this time we are unable to offer our 5-10 minute subsidised price appointments. Our fee for a 15 minute appointment slot remains at £30 with most appointments (including vaccinations) costing £30. Please see our price list for further information.

Please do not turn up at the Shelter without an appointment as reception is closed to the public. Please phone on arrival – reception is closed to visitors

Our phone lines will be open from 8:30am – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday

Dragon Vet Centre will provide emergency cover from 6pm to 7pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturday 01242 580324.
Chelvets continue to provide emergency cover outside of these times 01242 522022.

On arrival for your appointment, please telephone CASVet and we will collect/return your pet in the car park.


You are now able to order your usual Advocate or Nexgard Spectra prescription flea and worm treatments from CASVet to be posted to you.  Postage will be FREE for orders of 3+ months supply or just £2 postage for smaller orders.

You can also order non-urgent repeat prescription medications and prescription diet foods.

Please email your name and telephone number with any further detail to casvet@gawa.org.uk and one of our team will call you back within 2 working days to confirm your order, take payment and arrange postage.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

About Us

We are part of Cheltenham Animal Shelter

Every working day our vets and nurses provide free appointments for unowned pets staying in the shelter. Every year we provide thousands of free appointments for these pets.

We are local and independent

More and more vet practices keep their names yet are part owned by big national companies backed by shareholders and private equity, investing for profit.

Our prices are nearly always the lowest in town

We exist to support the Animal Shelter and provide affordable veterinary services to the public.

By using CASVet, you also help other charities

CASVet not only funds Cheltenham Animal Shelter but also helps breed rescue associations by providing discounted vet treatment. CASVet has also joined with the UK’s biggest vet charity – PDSA – to offer their new PetCare service to pet owners in need.

Our fantastic nursing team

CASVet has a large nursing team who offer free nurse appointments and provide fantastic care for any pets that are admitted to the clinic.

Our vet strength prescription flea and worm treatments are second to none and will treat many other parasites as well as fleas. We also keep the costs affordable by allowing owners to buy the doses individually, on a month by month basis.

By purchasing a 3 month supply of prescription flea treatment, we reward you by giving you a free dose of worming treatment.
