Ian McConnell Veterinary Practice

Local, Independent, Value for money, Common sense approach to pet care


Unlike many veterinary practices today, we are truly a 100% local, independent, family owned veterinary practice.  We do not have multiple branches across the country so we can concentrate on providing the best care in the locality.

 We have been serving the surrounding areas since 2000, formerly on Stamford Street in  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 high quality and value for money veterinary care for  your pet.  

We’re here seven days a week and when the practice is closed, you have the added peace of mind that if your pet becomes ill during this time, you will be seen on-site by Pet999 Limited They provide dedicated night vets and nurses that are available here in Mossley when we are closed.  No need for travelling long distances with a sick pet.

When the practice was originally started, the idea was that I wanted somewhere I would be happy to bring my own pet; this idea still carries on to this day.

Our Client Service Charter is simple: local, independent, value for money, common-sense approach to pet care.

The links above will direct you to specific services as well as news and blog pages. You can also register as a new client or request a repeat prescription.  Also check our news page for any important information or why not have a look at our Facebook and Twitter Pages for the most up to date information.  These can be found at the bottom of this page.

Thanks for visiting our website, Ian.
