Ian McConnell Veterinary Practice

Friendly, local, affordable, common-sense approach to pet care


Unlike many veterinary practices today, we are a 100% independent family owned veterinary practice.  We have been serving the local area since 2000, formerly on Stamford Street in Top Mossley. From October 2014 the former library on Wyre Street became our new home and now provides one of the most spacious and welcoming veterinary practices in Greater Manchester. Our friendly team of highly-trained, dedicated staff are here to provide excellent veterinary care for you and your pet.  

We’re here seven days a week and when the practice is closed, you have the added peace of mind that in the event of emergency, your pet will be seen by our preferred partner out-of-hours centre A&E Vets until 8 am on Monday 1st May 2017  THEN from 8 am Monday 1st May 2017 Pet999 will be offering this service within our premises here at Mossley. See our News page for more information

Our Client Service Charter is simple: friendly, local, affordable, common-sense approach to pet care. We aim to maintain a high quality of care throughout the whole practice but crucially, we know that you don’t care how much we know, until you know how much we care.

The links above will direct you to specific services as well as social media, video and news blog pages and are the most up-to-date way of keeping in touch with us. You can also register as a new client or request a repeat prescription.  Also check our news page for any important information.
