Cogges Veterinary Surgery was established in 1993. It is a strongly independent practice with a firm commitment to the local community.

Karen Kappen first opened Cogges Veterinary Surgery in May 1993.

We have been growing ever since and have built a reputation for being friendly and professional, whilst working hard to form an integral part of the community. In addition we  reach out to other communities (Botswana, Egypt) to help those who live under difficult circumstances.
We have also succeeded in remaining completely independent.

Everyone who works here loves animals and has pets of their own.
