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.

Your dog will be lost without a chip!


Having your pet microchipped is one of the best ways to increase your pet’s chances of getting home. Unlike dog tags and collars, which can fall off or be removed, microchipping is a more permanent form of identifying your dog. But don’t forget the law says all dogs must wear a collar and tag, with their owners name, address and telephone number on it.


Dogs Trust are currently offering FREE microchipping across the country - which is now available at all of our surgeries.






How does it work?

A tiny microchip about the size of a grain of rice is inserted under your dog’s loose skin, on the back of the neck. This gives the dog their own unique code. If your dog becomes lost or stolen and is picked up by the dog warden or turns up at a shelter or vet’s office, the microchip can be scanned and matched to your contact details, which are kept on a database.


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
