The oldest practice in the country

The Blue Cross Veterinary Hospital is situated in the beautiful suburb of Newlands in Cape Town, Western Cape.

We offer the quality care that your pets deserve in all aspects of Veterinary Medicine. Our vets cover the full spectrum of species from horses, cattle, sheep, dogs, cats, rabbits to birds and all small exotics. Our patients not only come from surrounding areas, but as far afield as Yzerfontein, Stellenbosch, Hout Bay, Noordhoek, Simons Town and Cape Point.

We offer a full veterinary service at our hospital. This includes medicine, surgery, dentistry, physical rehabilitation, micro-chipping, exotic animal care and limited grooming and boarding services for your pet. Our emphasis is on preventative medicine, but we are staffed and equipped to provide for most any illness, injury, or concern. We will provide you with clear recommendations and then help you make the best decision for your pet’s healthcare needs by explaining each option.

The on-site staff will help you in our Veterinary Retail Shop with all your requirements. If we don't have it we will source it. All our staff are trained in the primary veterinary care for your beloved pets. We are here to serve you and your pet and provide you the quality of service you want and deserve.Our first priority is for the patient.

Our Motto is "Your Pet, Your Vet, Our Passion!"
