About us

We are a very progressive practice based over 5 sites, Frome, Melksham, Trowbridge, Warminster, and Westbury. All sites are well equipped and supported to offer a high-quality service for all our clients and patients. In 2024 we will be acquiring a CT scanner at our hospital site in Frome providing 24-hour care.

Our team have decades of experience with three Lead Vets supporting our clinicians and Clinical Directors overseeing the running of the practices. Interests within the team include orthopaedics, dermatology, ECC, exotics, cardiology, dentistry, internal medicine, ultrasound imaging & laparoscopic key-hole solutions to surgery with several certificates held in Cardiology, Medicine, Surgery and ISFM Medicine in cats.

We are a very social team and enjoy nothing more than celebrating someone’s birthday which of course, includes cake! Every year, a few of us lucky enough to get tickets, make the 10-mile pilgrimage to the Glastonbury Festival.

We work very closely with our local communities from raising money with our clients to sponsorship for players. We have recently provided football kits for the Frome U9’s team and support local and national charities such as Cats Protection, Guide Dogs and Friends of Animals Wales.

We have our own 'Garston green team' who have recently achieved the IIE Silver accreditation. They are always looking for new members to join their very proactive and sociable meetings, which often involved food.

At Linnaeus, we are committed to supporting the physical and mental health of all our Associates. We have an amazing team of Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) across our practices and central support office in addition to a confidential Employee Assistance Programme which is available for everyone.
