At our practice we consult using open surgeries. We find this beneficial to our clients as it conveniently fits into busy schedules. Come along to one of our open surgeries and we will be happy to examine your pet and offer any advice needed. We strive to keep waiting times to a minimum but occasionally emergencies do arise and will take priority. We offer an emergency service for out of hours calls.

We do not use a service in conjunction with any other surgeries so your pet will be seen by your normal vet and in surroundings that are familiar.

Our main priority is the well being of your pet and you. If you have any queries or would like advice please call the surgery.

We have recently refurbished our premises with the addition of a new hospitalisation ward, pre-surgery room, fully equipped operating theatre and laboratory. As well as expanding our premises we have refurbished our existing facilities with a new reception and waiting room to make your visit to us as pleasant as possible.

We are a registered Veterinary Nursing Training establishment and a tier 2 member of the Royal College Of Veterinary Surgeons accredited practice scheme.
