We’re dedicated to the care of your pets

About Woodcroft Veterinary Group

We’ve been around a long time and bring a wealth of experience across our growing team. We love your pets like they’re our own, and are here to help you care for them, every step of the way.

Woodcroft Vets is a nurse training practice and so student veterinary nurses will be involved in the care of your pet. Our students are always fully supervised and supported by a qualified nurse or vet.

Our Mission

“We are here to help improve and extend the quality of life of each and every pet we treat – treating them as if they were our own”


Our Vision

Our vision is to be the veterinary practice of choice for clients in the Stockport area and for referring vets in the wider North-West region.

We aim to achieve this by providing outstanding care for our patients, by providing an excellent experience for our clients and by being a great place for our colleagues to work.

Outstanding care at Woodcroft means always offering the very best options available for our patients with engaged client consent. This will utilise the full range of knowledge, expertise and equipment we have throughout the group.
