Ian McConnell Veterinary Practice Ltd - Mossley

The Old Library
Wyre Street


When the practice was originally started, the idea was that I wanted somewhere I would be happy to bring my own pet; this idea still carries on to this day.

Unlike many veterinary practices today, we are a 100% independent family owned, serving the Greater Manchester area since 2000.

Our friendly team of highly-trained, dedicated staff are here to provide excellent veterinary care for you and your pet. We’re here seven days a week and when the practice is closed, you have the added peace of mind that if your pet becomes ill during this time, you will be seen on-site by Pet999 Limited who provide dedicated night vets and nurses that are available here in Mossley when we are closed. There’s no need to travel long distances or visit an unfamiliar practice when you need us the most.

Our Client Service Charter is simple: friendly, local, affordable, common-sense approach to pet care.

I look forward to meeting you and your pet soon

Shiko and Luna have been with Ian’s practice since last year following our vet leaving their last veterinary practice. I went to this practice off a recommendation from a friend and I haven’t regretted the move. We are very grateful to Ian for helping Shiko with her fear based aggression and her newly diagnosed multi joint arthritis. I was very concerned about Shiko meeting another vet as she had developed a good bond with the previous vet. I needn’t have worried. Ian has dealt with her on numerous occasions with no problems whatsoever. Our other Lab Luna hasn’t needed much veterinary attention except yearly immunisations and the other vets and admin staff have always been very friendly and caring. Can’t recommend this practice enough. Thank you for providing such a good and friendly practice Tammy, Jim, Shiko and Luna Bear

Always had my 3 cats register here. Cannot fault their professionalism and respect to all clients/animals. I cannot recommend them enough. They may not be the cheapest vets around but you pay for what you get, and when you trust them to look after 'a member of your family' money doesn't matter.

Yet again Ian and his team have looked after my beautiful girl as she became more and more sick. Molly deteriorated in the last 7 days and Ian made her comfortable so I was able to take her home, where she died 24 hours later. Thank you for showing care and compassion to Molly and myself. Having been on Ian McConnell books since day one I would recommend his practise to anyone.

Used this practice for many years, for many types of pet, large and small. Always excellent. Tonight my 17 year old dog was sadly pts. The staff were so kind with me at the saddest of times, and very gentle with poor Ruby. They made a terrible situation into a bearable experience. I am grateful for their care.

Your amazing. I brought my poppy in (shar pei) when she suddenly became very poorly very quickly with possible shar pei fever and your team did an amazing job nursing her back to perfect health you couldn’t have been more helpful and caring when I was an emotional wreck. You also cared for my previous shar pei Alfie unfortunately despite your best efforts he couldn’t be saved but all the team did everything they could in a caring and compassionate manner and I couldn’t be more grateful
