Pet Doctors Rustington

Welcome to Pet Doctors Rustington, your local community vets. We are committed to caring for your pets and making sure your pets receive the best possible veterinary health care.


Our Vets, Vet Nurses and support staff are all specially selected to work as a team to care for your pets. Here at Rustington we have a dedicated operating theatre and kennels for cats and dogs which can be closely monitored by our staff throughout the day. We also have a garden at the back of the clinic so the dogs can be walked regulary.


Here at Pet Doctors in Rustington, we work with many charities, but one close to all of our hearts is a local charity called Worthing Cat welfare. Their care and hard work towards the rescue cat they take in is next to none. They can only do the great work they do by donations made by the public. Please visit their website for fund raising events and animal rehoming.
