‘Treating your pets like our own’

Welcome to our practice


Southill Vets is a long established independent veterinary practice serving Wincanton, Gillingham, Milborne Port, Mere and the surrounding villages on the Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire border.Our main surgery at Wincanton has an extensive range of facilities to cater for all routine medical and surgical needs of your househould pets.  We offer in-house 24 hour emergency veterinary care using our own staff.  Our laboratory is well equipped to cater for blood and urine analysis with results available within minutes.  Digital Xray facilities and ultrasound imaging is available at both our Wincanton and Gillingham sites.


Unfortunately, there is a national supply issue with cat vaccines. We have been allocated a very limited supply from our vaccine manufacturer so we will need to strictly ration our vaccines. We will be prioritising the most vulnerable cases first – so we will offer kitten vaccines and first year boosters only. If your booster vaccines are due, we are asking that all clients wait another 3 months before contacting us to book in – it is safe to go up to 15 months between vaccinations in adult cats. If you are not sure what your cat need then please email: admin@southillvets.couk or call 01963 33226

September Covid-19 Update

Welcome back!

We are super happy to say that this week we are letting clients back into all of our branches.

We are still asking that you respect each other’s space as much as possible, wear a mask and use the hand sanitiser provided upon entry.

During busy times you may still be asked to wait outside until we call you in with your pet, and would prefer if only one or two people accompanied each pet to their appointment.

We are still more than happy to see you and your pets outside, and may still advise ‘al fresco’ appointments in certain cases – this is at the discretion of the vet or nurse you will be seeing, or also at your request.

Appointments are open at all of our branches, although opening hours at Mere and Milborne Port are still slightly restricted.
Call us to book an appointment at your nearest branch, or request an appointment online via the ‘Request an appointment page’ on this website.
