Experience the support of our five, highly skilled RVNs, who independently run nurse consults and Schedule 3 procedures.

If you have an interest in surgery, our theatre is kitted out for major, minor, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery. 

Here’s what the team have to say 

“I joined Crown House Vets following a locum stint almost 8years ago. I knew before my contract ended that I wanted to work here permanently – and luckily I was given that opportunity! We have a fabulous team, who work well together, and a lovely client base. The benefits IVC provide excel any other company I have worked for and I look forward to coming to work each day.” – Louise Farricker, RVN Practice Director
