Welcome to Parker And Crowther Veterinary Surgeons
At Parker and Crowther we believe we offer the very best in veterinary care and customer service.
Like you, we are pet owners and understand the need to make your pet feel as relaxed and comfortable as we can whilst they are in our care.
We are a privately run practice (not owned by a large corporate company) with surgeries in Birkdale, Churchtown, Formby and Maghull. We acquired the Formby and Maghull practices in 2011 when George Petchey retired.
2015 Give a Meal For Christmas Appeal
Our annual event for 2015 is now up and running.
Our Four Surgeries have a dontation box in their waiting rooms for clients and non clients to pop in to put a dontation in the box.
This can be anything from food, toys, treats, bedding (blankets, towels).
These donations will then be distributed to our local animal charities around our area to help them during this time of year.
Every year is a great success and we are hopeful that this year will be the same.
Speak to one of our reception or nursing staff for any information.
Final date for drop off is Monday 21st December.

We recognise that keeping customers happy and pets healthy is a team effort from the receptionist and support staff right through to the vets and nurses themselves. These awards provide an opportunity for pet owners to recognise the hard work and dedication of veterinary staff and say 'thank you'.
What are the award categories?
The 5 award categories are:
- Practice of the Year
- Practice Manager of the Year
- Practice Support Staff of the Year
- Vet Nurse of the Year
- Vet of the Year
When is the nomination period?
Nominations for the Veterinary Awards open in September and close on the 31st January 2016.
What should I say in my nomination?
Each pet owner will have their own individual reasons for why they think their practice or someone in the team deserves an award. Try to provide specific examples of what the practice or members of the team did to go above and beyond your expectations. What specifically did they do or say? How did they make you feel? What was it that made a difficult experience much more bearable for you or your pet?
How are these awards judged?
Nominations are judged by an independent panel of leading people from the veterinary industry including presidents of the veterinary and nursing associations and previous winners of these awards. These judges have first-hand experience of life in practice and are able to use their veterinary expertise to judge who the truly outstanding teams and individuals are from the thousands of nominations received each year. Petplan are not part of the judging panel.

Flea and Tick Prevention Season 2015
A time bomb that's ticking - Dealing with ticks.
Ticks are benefiting from climate change, posing a threat to both human and animal health. We are informing all of our clients what you can do to protect both your dog and yourself.
It is widely reported that tick numbers are increasing. The apparent changes in seasons are also favouring the spread of ticks that were previously only found in warmer parts of the continent towards northern Europe and the UK. As well as being unpleasant for you and your dog they can also be involved in the transmission of some diseases.
Please click on the Services & Products button above to learn more about Flea and Ticks and our products to help prevent them.
We are very proud to announce that all four of our Practices have freshly received accreditation under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's Practice Standards Scheme.
Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care
So, this means that you can be even more sure that we are committed to providing the absolute best care for your Pets
