The Branch

Skeldale Veterinary Centre Medivet Ripon is a compact practice which values client relationships and pet bonds at its core. The practice consists of one consult room, a small kennels area, and a small lab area to enable the work up of first opinion cases well. The practice is continuing to successfully grow within Ripon and is very quickly becoming a valued source of veterinary care within the local area.

We work closely with our main 24 Hour hospital in Thirsk, sharing support staff, equipment, and vets to provide comprehensive care for our patients in Ripon. Cases requiring further diagnostics or hospitalisation are referred to our linked larger 24 hour Hospital in Thirsk, an easy 20 minute drive away, where it is possible to either work up cases yourself or work as part of the Thirsk team to provide the best care possible.

Ripon is an unspoilt cathedral city with a thriving market, interesting museums, fun racecourse, and amazing nature all around. A journey 10 miles in any direction will bring you to the surrounding beautiful Dales countryside, where first class visitor attractions including castles, abbeys, and nature are easily accessible.
