Swadlincote Veterinary Centre is a privately owned 1st opinion veterinary surgery who’s primary aim is to provide the very best of veterinary care for your pets.

Swadlincote Veterinary Centre (formally Waterloo House Vets) has been in its current location at the entrance to The Pipeworks Retail Park and Morrisons Supermarket since June 2013. Since that time we have seen the business grow significantly, resulting in additional staff and additional services to our clients.

Our current premises started out life as the headquarters for the old Wraggs and Hepworth pipe makers. After laying derelict for many years, the property was purchased along with acres of land which is now the Pipeworks Retail Park. The building has undergone a full exterior renovation – new roof, re-pointing the brickwork, new windows and doors, and a full internal fit-out to a modern and highly functional Veterinary Surgery.

We have a highly experienced Veterinary team to look after your pets from puppy/kittenhood right through to their senior years. Our vets are experienced in a comprehensive range of diagnostics, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeries, eye problems, cancer treatments etc as well as the day to day preventative care such as vaccinations, neuters and speys, dentistries etc.

Our highly experienced nursing team ensure your pets visit to Swadlincote Veterinary Centre is as comfortable as possible, and work along side the vets in surgical procedures, x-rays etc as well as tending to your pets every need when they have to stay for a few days.

We are open 7 days a week (excluding bank holidays) to cater to your pets veterinary needs. Should your pet need veterinary attention outside of our normal hours the phone number for Pride Park Veterinary Hospital, who provide our out-of-hours cover, is stated on our answer machine message.
