Welcome To Head & Head Vets In Helston 

Head and Head Veterinary Practice Ltd. is a long established mixed Veterinary Practice, located in the picturesque market town of Helston in Cornwall.

We treat a variety of species including dogs, cats, rabbits, dairy and beef cows, sheep, pigs, horses, chickens, camelids and seals. We can also provide basic care and advice for birds and reptiles.

We provide our own 24 hour emergency service for our clients, 365 days of the year. Out of hours, you will see one of our usual vets at the Helston surgery - you will not have to travel to another practice! Our nurses are also on call out of hours, to help with emergency operations and intensive medical cases.
 We have plenty of on site parking spaces and spaces are also available on the road outside.

Consultations are seen by appointment only and please phone reception on 01326 572216 to book. We will endeavour to try and offer you an appointment with your preferred vet for continuity of care, but sometimes this may not be possible.

In the case of an emergency outside of these hours please contact us as usual and the on duty vet will be in touch.

For our Farm and Equine clients, we have a totally separate department at the practice. Having its own entrance, reception area and dispensary helps to minimise waiting times and maximise efficiency. If you would like a Vet to visit your farm, or to examine your horse - please phone our Large Animal Department on 01326 572215


We have a Head Start Vaccination Package for young pets and a Head and Head Loyalty Club (with automatic membership for all pets up to date with their vaccines done by us).
