Why Choose Us?

We are a warm friendly practice who is committed to you, your pet and giving the highest standards of healthcare available.  We believe that quality is what counts for our pets and work hard to make sure this is achieved.  Perhaps that is why we have been trusted by the local community for over 100 years with the care of their pets.

We are a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Accredited Practice, having been inspected and approved as meeting the very strict criteria of standards in small animal veterinary practice and have awarded us the Small Animal rating to reflect this.

Our team are deeply committed to helping pets to experience as little anxiety as possible when they come to see us. We are proud that so many of our patients actually enjoy their visits to see us for their health checks. It is our priority to keep pets as calm and stress free as possible if they need to see us or spend any time in the hospital.

We actively encourage clients to seek to make appointments with the same veterinary surgeon for any particular ongoing case if at all possible. If this is not possible you can be reassured that the internal communication systems we have in place between our staff mean that each of the veterinary surgeons is well equipped to take on an ongoing case.

We want our clients to feel fully informed about their pet’s health, and it is our responsibility to inform you of all available options. As pet owners ourselves, we know we all have personal sentiments about what is best for our pets and we are there to guide and support you in making decisions so that we achieve a solution that you are comfortable with should your pet require treatment.  The correct decision for everyone does not mean the most expensive one.
