Symptom Checker

If you’re not sure whether your pet needs to see a vet, our quick and easy Symptom Checker can help. Answer a few simple questions about the signs of illness your pet is displaying and the checker will advise whether a trip to the vet is necessary and how urgently that specialist care should be given.

  • Your vet in Alder

    As Liverpool's only dedicated 24-hour veterinary hospital, we provide expert, friendly care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Benefit from our well-equipped, modern facilities and wide range of services, including minor and advanced surgery, dentistry, and same-day lab results.

  • Cat-friendly facilities

    At Medivet, we understand that cats have unique needs and natures, which can often make visits to the vet very stressful both for cats and owners. That's why we provide separate cat waiting areas and operating theatres, to ensure you and your cat's visits are stress-free.

    Our practice is equipped with a full video endoscopy system to enable us to perform cutting-edge keyhole surgery. Our surgeons have a depth of experience using this advanced equipment for minimally invasive surgeries.

Sadly we had to let our dearly loved family pet go to sleep forever as she lost the ability to walk as old age caught up with her . Can’t thank the female vet who helped she was amazing and had so much empathy. We said our goodbyes and Beth our cat fell asleep peacefully . Heartbreaking but the best thing for her. We received a sympathy card in the post today from the staff . What a beautiful thought to send a card and lovely handwritten note expressing their sympathy for the loss of our lovely pet. Thanks again xxx

Cara was so lovely last night when we had to make the hardest decision of our lives. Thank you so much for looking after our precious little boy in the last moments of his life. You made the most difficult moment, a little more bearable with your compassion. You were not just doing your job, you really care about the animals that you are looking after. Again, thank you so so much 💗

My fur baby Tyson has just spent the last two days of his life with Cara the vet at Medivets. Cara was amazing and such a beautiful and kind person and I am so glad my dog’s last two days were being looked after by her . In all the 14 years of owning dogs I have never met a vet like her . She spent time out of her mad busy day to keep me updated on his condition and tried everything she could to save my baby. I have much comfort that he was loved and had lots of cuddles in his last days off Cara and her team . Sammy the vetinary nurse was also amazing and nothing was ever too much . Both these members of the Medivet team are such a credit to this vetinary hospital. Thank you Cara and Sammy from the bottom of my broken heart

I'm new to the area and we needed to rush our 4 month old puppy in after hours due to him getting into contact with mouse pellets on a walk. The receptionist on the phone was very calming and polite and explained everything including the cost before we came in which personally I believe reasonable dispite other reviews. Due to Covid the ladys who collected him and the vets who called us were so so lovely and gave us multiple options. I don't know what we would have done without this 24 hour service and so we're so grateful to the staff, thank you again

Absolutely superb treatment for my Shar Pei Bruno, he had bloat , Geoff and the team treated him and probably saved his life. They even took time out to tell us he was out of surgery and doing well. Huge thanks to everyone who works at Alder vets in Liverpool, you are all fabulous.
