David and Carole Clarke started the practice in King Street, King’s Lynn in 1984. By 1990, the practice had moved to a newly-built centre here at Mill House. We see cats, dogs and other small animals only, and provide a high level of service at reasonable cost, with staff all committed to excellent pet care. Not all Vet Surgeries are Hospitals. Our multi-award winning Veterinary Hospital is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) . This means our staff, buildings, equipment, service and hygiene are of the highest standard and are staffed 24 hours a day for emergency cases.  To find out more about the benefits to our clients of the RCVS accreditation scheme you can view their video by clicking here.

Keeping pets healthy is a priority, and our Vet Health Advisors (VHAs) offer free health care advice throughout the day, and help individually with weight loss programmes, special diets, dental and diabetic care, and well pet checks. They also hold early puppy training sessions at Puppy Socialisation classes. As well as our normal work, we see referral cases from other vets in Radiology, Ultrasound, Endoscopy and General Medicine and Surgery, Laparoscopy, Dermatology (skin problems) and Acupuncture.

Plenty of car parking is available in the surgery grounds.
