Cibyn Veterinary Clinic, based in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, is a North Wales vets clinic established since 1978, moving to our current custom built surgery in 1997. 

Since 2014 we have been taken over by Independent Vet Care, enabling us to take advantage of the positives of the bigger companies but still run as an independent practice.

We have high standard pet grooming facilities on site.

We provide veterinary services for companion animals (pets); dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals, as well as the more exotic pets routinely presented to us.

We have ten highly qualified vets and 8 qualified nurses who uphold high nursing standards for our hospitalized cases. We take an on-going approach to professional development and all members of staff regularly attend training courses.

We have clients from all areas of Gwynedd, including Caernarfon, Bangor and Pwllheli - and further afield from Anglesey - and we are very well equipped to cope with a large mixture of cases.

Our aim is to work with our clients to provide our patients with as long, healthy and active a life as possible.
