The Bilton Veterinary Centre has been at the present location for over 50 years.  For many years it was known by its former name of “Furber and Lloyd-Griffiths” and became The Bilton Veterinary Centre after the retirement of Mr Frank Lloyd Griffiths in 2001. 

The current directors are Mrs Claire Gardner and Miss Rose Bolan who took over the reins when Mark Furber returned in 2005.

Up until 2009 we were a mixed practice involved with all aspects of pets, farm animals and horses but once senior farm vet Mr Hipkins retired we have decided to concentrate on providing a first class ”small animal” service. 

We currently have 5 full time veterinary surgeons and 7 fully qualified veterinary nurses.
