About Us
Located in Pembrokeshire, surrounded by stunning beaches and countryside, we are a rural practice who prides ourselves on a first class small animal service, practising excellent medicine with great clients.

We do all of our own surgery including orthopaedics (including TTA), and have aquatic treadmill therapy for post-op rehabilitation and care of our ‘oldies’.

We are a friendly and experienced team of vets and colleagues who can provide support to develop your skills, whilst working in a busy practice, with encouragement and flexibility to find your clinical pathway. Our vet and nursing teams span all ages and experiences, and we are very lucky to have several highly experienced members of the team, many of whom have been with us long-term.
