Our newly refurbished practices
We have 3 branches which have all been recently refurbished. Our main branch is in Charlton, Andover and we have 2 further branches; our Ludgershall branch runs consults and operations, and finally, our Whitchurch branch is consult-only. All 3 branches sit within a stone's throw from the countryside, with fast links to London (car and rail) and the coast within 1hr 30mins. You also have easy access to the West Country and Wales (both within 2hrs drive).
Charlton practice comprises of 5 consulting rooms, separate dog and cat waiting area, dedicated ultrasound room, prep room, x-ray room, 2 theatres, dog kennels, cat ward and an isolation ward. Charlton houses the usual equipment including new ultrasound, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, endoscopy and in-house lab.

Find a supportive team and a world of opportunity
Our team has a real family feel to it. We have had a stable team for a few years now which we really pride ourselves on. The team consists of 11 Veterinary Surgeons, 10 RVNs, 2 SVNs and 2 ACAs and 11 members in the support team. The Vet team has a vast amount of experience across all fields. We have multiple certificate holders including dermatology, small animal medicine and acupuncture and Western Herbal Medicine. Many of our Nurses have trained at Foxcotte as we are proud to be a training practice for RVNs. We are also very fortunate to have a cardiologist hold clinics with us once a month, and also work alongside a wonderful physiotherapist who has clinics at our branch surgeries 3-4 times a week.
We hope the ideal candidate will bring with them their own personality and area of interest to help expand the Foxcotte range of services. We are keen to support any future development in the form of CPDs and certificates.
As a practice we like to promote good mental well-being, holding practice gatherings 3-4 times a year including summer BBQs, Christmas parties, Easter egg hunts and even theatre trips!
We also like to support both local and national charities, for example, MacMillan Cake Morning, Christmas Jumper Day, and food bank donations to mention a few.
