Rhodes Veterinary Surgery Northampton, was established in 1958 by John Rhodes. He foresaw the importance of a veterinary practice that would provide the highest level of pet care, and worked ceaselessly to achieve this.

His son, Alan, joined the practice in 1976 and together they continued to work towards providing the highest possible standards.

The branch surgery at Towcester Road was established in 1970,providing services to the south of the town.All the staff at Rhodes Vets are proud to work for such a long standing, family focussed practice that's been looking after Northampton's pets and their owners for over 50 years. A lot can happen in 50 years. Fashions change and businesses come and go. Rhodes has stood the test of time. Fifty years ago we were caring for your grandparents and their pets. We've moved with the times, adopted more sophisticated technology and improved medicines, fully embraced ongoing training and education for our staff, but one thing hasn't changed at all; our relationship with you and your pet. We always strive to deliver the best possible care and continue to do so at an affordable price. We look forward to being here, looking after your grandchildren's pets, in another fifty years.

The practice became RCVS  approved and has recently undergone inspection to update this.
