Company

Our new clinic opened on the 25th January 2016. We acquired the building and site nearly a year earlier when we realised that it would make an ideal veterinary clinic, especially as it has nearly an acre of parking! We then worked for the year completely changing the building from an empty shell to the amazing facility that it is today.

We are really proud of what we have achieved at the new clinic as we have lots of added extras which we hope make you and your pet’s experience with us more enjoyable.

Within the clinic we have the following: 3 consult rooms, pharmacy, separate cat and dog waiting rooms, 3 theatres, diagnostic suite, large separate cat and dog wards, exotic ward, isolation ward, laboratory, laundry and even staff accommodation.

One of the consulting rooms is “Cats Only” so that we can keep things as stress-less as possible for our feline friends. We also have 2 dog booths within the waiting room for our canine patients who prefer their own company to that of other dogs!

We also have a small child friendly area within reception so that children can be kept happy while waiting to see the vet!

Last but not least we have (from end of February 2016) outdoor kennels and runs for our clients to use if they would like to leave their dog while going for a trip around the garden centre. This operates on a first-come-first-served basis and is time restricted so that everyone can use them! We hope that all of these extras plus the amazing facilities we have will allow us to offer the best caring and professional veterinary service possible.
