We have surgeries in Newbury, Thatcham and Kingsclere. All are well equipped and professionally staffed to provide the best of care for our clients.

We understand how frightening it can be when a pet is sick or injured. We appreciate that this can be made worse if you have to travel to a strange place to see a vet you don't know. So we run our out of hours emergency service with our own vets in our Newbury Surgery. 

We are all pet owners ourselves and fully understand just what important members of a family they are.

Our aim is to give the best advice to keep pets healthy and we offer a comprehensive program of preventative care for a long and active life. And if a pet does fall ill or has an accident, they can be assured we are always there to provide a quality caring service.
