Kingfisher Veterinary practice (KVP) celebrated it’s centenary in 2006. It originally started as a one-man horse practice and expanded over the years into a multi vet mixed practice covering areas as far afield as Maiden Newton in Dorset and Cotford St. Luke in Somerset.

In 2009 KVP divided its large animal and small animal sides of the business to run as independent units. The small animal side remained as Kingfisher Vets and the large animal side became part of Synergy Farm Health based in Evershot, Dorset.

Kingfisher Veterinary Practice as it stands today is a progressive 4 centre practice. We have vets from many different backgrounds contributing a wealth of experience and expertise. Many of our nursing and reception staff have lived locally for many years and have been connected with the practice for much of this time.

Veterinary support in the local community: 

We are a traditional privately-run practice that has excellent links within the local community. We visit local schools and clubs to talk about our work and encourage people to see what goes on ‘behind the scenes’. We also have strong ties with St. Margarets Hospice, a charity that we support every year with donations generated from activities in and out of work hours.
