About Us

Between our two branches in Wavertree and Fazakerley we have 5 RVNs with varying experience. We also have a very hard working SVN, 3 superb VCA's and 3 amazing dedicated receptionists. We have 8 fantastic vets with experience ranging from new graduate to 34 years in basic orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, emergency inpatient care and acupuncture to name a few. We often have visiting specialists who perform cardiac work ups, ultrasonography and soft tissue surgeries. We are aiming to bring some of these skills in practice by investing in new equipment and staff training such as endoscopy. We are passionate about preventative health and our RVN's play a vital role in promoting this and educating our clients to provide the best care for their pets in the form of nursing consultations to include 2nd Vaccines, Puppy and Kitten Development Clinics, Weight Clinics, Geriatric Clinics and much more!

We have numerous loyal clients who still remember the days of John and Rita Adams! We have General Practice accreditation with RCVS Practice Standards and wish to become ISFM Cat Friendly accredited in the near future. We as a group have a passion for making our patients’ visits as positive and free from stress as much as possible. We have 3 consulting rooms including a dedicated Nurses Room along with Digital X rays, Multiparameter, ECG, Ultrasound, Idexx Lab Machines and Tonometry.

During the pandemic it has been difficult to get together and spend time with each other outside of work, however, we recently did a Virtual Escape Room activity which was a lot of fun! Last summer we walked 1 million steps together to raise money for Vetlife! We feel it is important to help support and promote the resources and organisations who work hard to help and support the wellbeing of the veterinary Industry.
