About Penmellyn Vets
Our practice has over a hundred years of history but with our flagship St Columb Major Hospital, referral centre and network of local practices we’ve ensured we remain at the forefront of veterinary practice in Cornwall.
Our practice motto is ‘Best of Care: Modern Medicine, Traditional Values’. Care that encompasses welcoming our clients and rewarding their loyalty with discounted Pet Health Plans. Care for our patients, ensuring not just that our clinical standards remain optimal, but that each pet presented to the practice is treated by all staff just as we treat our own. Care for our staff, encouraging and funding training courses for constant professional development.
In our Newquay, Pool and Padstow & St Merryn local practices, we have established clinical and reception teams so you can be sure friendly and familiar faces will greet you and your pet at each visit.
Our St Columb Major Hospital, with clinical staff on-site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is equipped as a local clinic, referral centre and emergency clinic. It is the home of A30 Referrals, offering advanced expertise to practices throughout Cornwall and South Devon in disciplines including Orthopaedic, Spinal and Soft Tissue Surgery, Cardiology, Ophthalmology and hospitalised case management. As an emergency centre, we are equipped to provide urgent support for pets needs ranging from Caesarians and Road Traffic Accidents to Spinal Surgery and Rehabilitation.
We encourage our clients to take out Pet Insurance, and are all our clinics are able to provide registration with PetPlan. A sound insurance policy not only offers peace of mind to our clients, but ensures that advanced health care is available in NHS-style ‘Free at the point of use’ and removes financial concerns from the treatment options you select for your pets. We always provide clients with a range of treatment options for you to choose the care you want for your pet. By explaining in detail any processes involved, we aim to bring you in to treatment plan as much as possible, with all the guidance you want.
At Penmellyn Vets, we believe successful health care for your pet can best be served by a partnership between owners and your veterinary practice team. We look forward to working with you towards a long and healthy relationship between you and your pet.
