We offer a low-cost veterinary clinic for individuals in receipt of a means tested benefit within our Gloucestershire and South Cotswolds community.
We offer weekly 10-minute appointments at our centre clinic in Cam, Dursley to help with minor conditions.
We also run free drop-in welfare sessions in local communities. These outreach clinics are held intermittently at local community centres, food banks, churches and the like.
Unlike our regular low-cost clinic, there is no need to register or make an appointment for our drop-in sessions. Simply come along with your pets for free health checks, flea and worming treatments, microchipping, and medication.
Please get in touch with our Reception team to enquire about the date and location of our next drop-in clinic.
In order to comply with RCVS standards, we must declare any veterinary treatment administered to our clients’ pets with their registered veterinary practice and ensure that they have access to an out-of-hours/emergency veterinary provision.
CDCH do not provide an out-of-hours/emergency service, so if your animal is not registered with a veterinary practice, you will be referred to Vale Vets in Dursley for any out-of-hours/emergency treatment you should require as a result of the treatment given by our Vet.
Please note that the emergency/out-of-hours service is chargeable at the rate set by Vale Vets and all fees must be paid at the time of your appointment. Vale Vets can be contacted on 01453 542 092 for their emergency/out-of-hours service.
As well as our clinics, we also offer support through neutering and help voucher schemes, further details on these have been provided below.

Our Help Vouchers are designed to support your pet when they are most in need or if you are facing an unexpected vet cost. These vouchers are intended for emergency or for unforeseen but necessary veterinary treatment. We are able to provide a contribution of 25% of the vets estimate, provided the cost exceeds £150. Help vouchers can provide a maximum contribution of £150 towards the cost of the treatment. The quote must be communicated to CDCH prior to any treatment being carried out.
CDCH offers a fixed contribution towards the neutering of your animal, this contribution is highlighted below:
If you don’t see your pet in the list above, please talk to one of our team for more information.
As long as you live in our catchment area and are in receipt of one of the means tested benefits listed below, you are eligible for our help:
The CDCH clinics offer preventative treatment to eligible clients. We are not a low-cost veterinary care provider and do not offer the full range of veterinary care traditionally available at a veterinary practice. For these reasons, clients registering with CDCH clinics will also be encouraged to register with a veterinary practice that offers a full range of treatments.
Appointments are 15 minutes long and must be made in advance by calling the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home on – 01453 890014.
Please note that we are not a veterinary practice and your pet may be referred to a vets to receive treatment. In this instance we may be able to assist by providing a ‘help’ voucher.
To access our voucher schemes, please contact us at the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home via email or calling the centre:
