Our clinics, first established in 1986 at Blackhorse Road in Kingswood have now become a well recognised provider of quality veterinary care to the local Bristol pet population.

We have fully equipped operating theatres at both Hanham and Kingswood. We believe patient safety to be a priority and thus we use the most up to date inhalation anaesthetic equipment. During anaesthesia all patients are monitored throughout their operation with our modern Airway Gas and Pulsoximeter monitors. These constantly measure oxygen, carbon dioxide levels, and pulse rate. Blood pressure is also monitored where applicable. All sterile procedures ranging from neuterings to orthopaedic and abdominal surgery are carried out at both our clinics. Minor procedures, such as dentistry are undertaken in separate dedicated clinical areas.
