A Glimpse at Our Practice…

We're a well-established RCVS training practice with a good reputation looking after the veterinary needs of a large and loyal client base since 1989. Our team's invaluable experience allows us to confidently manage a wide range of medical and surgical cases providing not only a robust in-house first opinion service to our clients but also a very attractive learning platform whether that be for new graduates starting their career, more experienced vets wanting to take their skills to the next level or any vet looking to become part of a friendly team delivering meaningful veterinary care.
We are a modern, well-equipped practice with Bio-Chemistry and Haematology Idexx machines, Digital x-ray processors, Ultrasound, dental machines and multiparameter monitors.
The cities of Bristol, Newport and Cardiff are all within a reasonable commute of the practice, along with the beautiful South Wales coastline, the Forest of Dean and Brecon Beacons.

Our team consists of 2 full-time Vets, 2 part-time Vets, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 Student Nurses, 1 International Vet preparing for his RCVS membership exam and a Practice Manager who is also a Registered Veterinary Nurse, so understands the pressures a clinical role has on veterinary employees. 
Our reception team and VCA are also on hand to help.

The original practice at New Inn was opened in August 1989 by Richard Smith as a solo practitioner.  A year later, he was joined by Valerie Clare who later went on to become a partner in the practice.  In 1997, we established the Fairwater surgery, which had much-needed space to expand our service.
