Cowbridge is an affluent market town with a traditional high street full of independent shops and has once been voted the best place to live in Wales by the Sunday Times.
Llantwit Major is a pretty seaside town 5 minutes’ drive away from the beach and both practices are only a short drive away from Cardiff and its Airport.
Our small animal practices have a supportive team of two experienced and knowledgeable Vets one of whom does Orthopaedics, a friendly nursing team of four and a receptionist - both the practices have well-equipped facilities and see a varied caseload.
