Coronavirus/Covid-19 Update

Updated 23rd November 2020:

We remain open to see clients on the basis of clinical need, and strictly by appointment only. Unless notified otherwise, appointments and operations already booked will go ahead as planned. If you have an appointment, please aim to arrive at the specified time to ensure we can keep to schedule.

We request that all clients visiting the practice wear a face covering, and maintain a 2 metre distance at all times.
Clients must please phone the practice before attending.

Please note: We remain very busy, so please bear in mind that we still have to prioritise the most urgent cases.
Where possible, we ask that clients avoid phoning the practice during consulting times (9-11am; 4:30-7pm weekdays).


We help you do what is best for your pet.

Our Telephone Number is 01727 854787 (24 Hours).

*As of December 2019, our on-site test offerings now include routine biochemistry, haematology, thyroid, kidney, urine and progesterone (pre-mating) tests. These can all be run during the consultation, meaning we can provide results before you leave.
Some more extensive and specialised tests are still sent to an independent laboratory, with results returned in a matter of days.
