About Us

Budget Vets started life over 10 years ago on Malpas Road in Newport and in that time we have grown from one to seven branches.

Our aim is to provide veterinary care at a fair and reasonable price to all animals, at all times, regardless of their owner’s income, background or circumstances.

We offer all the same services and facilities you would expect to find in any other veterinary practice and in some cases, more.  From in-house laboratories to digital x-ray machines, our equipment ensures that your pet gets the right treatment as soon as possible.

Testimonials

  • Risca practice was brilliant when we sadly had to have our elderly pet dog pts last Thursday. Very sympathetic and supportive. Helped make a heartbreaking event a lot more bearable for both ourselves and our poor doggy. Lots of thanks to them.

  • Took my hyper choccie lab Chelsea to your Blackwood branch yesterday, poor little thing was petrified and widdled three times lol but your staff had no probs cleaning up after her and gave her nothing but fuss....faultless :-) good job she was only there for her annual booster !lol

  • I am just writing to say thank you and pass on my thoughts on your staff at the surgery. Everyone from the receptionist to the vetting staff were top class and a great help to myself and Elvis. Pass on my thanks to your 1st class staff.

  • Used both the Blackwood & Risca practices & found all staff extremely helpful & knowledgeable, to the extent where Peter's knowledge & advice cured my bearded dragon within a week of her becoming ill which reading on the internet what she had was potentially fatal. Will & have already recommended to family & friends with all pet types especially Risca for the reptile help.

  • My border collie aptly named Ollie went into the Porth vets last week for the snip (sorry can't think of a more subtle way to put it) and the staff were nothing short of superb. Will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

  • I went to Newport Branch this morning for my puppies final jab and also my other dogs annual booster. My older dog is scared of vets due to 2 previous bad experiences, hence me travelling from Cardiff to Newport to try out Budget Vets! I am sooooo pleased with how patient Alexa was with my Bailey and she finally made a visit to the vets a positive experience for her......I am more than pleased and so is Bailey...........THANK YOU
