I (Faye) qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2002. I have been proud to work to a high standard ever since, and love my job. I have been lucky enough to work alongside Specialists in most disciplines, particularly dentistry, dermatology and internal medicine, and have been trained by Soft Tissue Specialists to perform assorted advanced procedures.

Rui, my husband, is from Santarém and lived in the UK for 20 years. He has a background in management and pharmacy. As receptionist, nurse, and manager, he mans front-of-house.

124 Vet is purpose-built, with spacious rooms, natural light, and finishes that are easy to clean to hospital standard. We boast a large car park and are really easy to find - literally on the EN124 main road between Silves and São Bartolomeu de Messines.

We offer an appointment-only service, to ensure a non-rushed consultation – especially important for the complex case or nervous pet. We also provide emrgency cover for our clients. As well as looking after your cat or dog, we cater for pigeon fanciers via performing crop and dropping analysis. Checking parasite burdens maximises the birds’ health and performance, and reduces unnecessary medicating. Samples can be sent by post if not based locally.

With modern facilities that include separate dental and operating areas for superior hygiene control, imaging suite (digital x-ray/ultrasound), kenneling, and in-house laboratory, we are set up for just about all eventualities.

Give us a call – come and look around – see why we have clients from Aljezur to Setúbal to Castelo Branco
