Traditional Values and High-Quality Service from your Locally Based Vets


House & Jackson have been caring for animals in Essex for over 30 years, investing in people, equipment and facilties. We provide you and your animal with the service you deserve.


We are a locally based partnership. All five partners are qualified vets and work in the clinics on a daily basis. They share the management of the practice to ensure that we provide the highest standards of care for our patients. There are 7 other veterinary surgeons and around 30 other staff members.


Some of our vets work with both horse and small animal species, while others specialise in their chosen area. We feel we are small enough to care personally for your animals and get to know your needs, while we are large enough to cope with the wide range of medical and surgical problems that are brought under our care.


Small Animal veterinary practices, in particular, are increasingly owned and operated by large corporate businesses. This is not how we work.


Your animals are important to you and to us. Whether a guinea pig, a dog or a horse, our dedication and skill will provide the best treatment using cutting-edge methods, but not forgetting patience and a genuine love of animals so that your animal recovers quickly.

Emergency Service

We are proud to say that at House & Jackson we still provide OUR OWN EMERGENCY SERVICE. Unlike many practices in our area we do not pass our emergency work on to outside providers.


Read our EMERGENCY CHARTER and find out what House & Jackson care really means. Does your current vet provide all this? If not, perhaps it is time you register with House & Jackson for peace of mind and reliable care for your animals.


If your animal needs help urgently out of hours, please phone our normal daytime telephone numbers to be put in contact with one of our vets.
