Over the years, the surgery has been extensively refurbished and remodelled so that behind the cottage façade there are up to date modern facilities. It has been awarded tier 2 status by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
The surgery is equipped to deal with all manner of cases, with its’ on site laboratory, X-ray and operating facilities.
