We are a thriving and progressive two-vet practice set in an idyllic countryside location. We are blessed with the sorts of clients that most practices can only dream of, who come to us for our high standard of work-ups, treatment and customer service – which we pride ourselves on.

Despite being a small and peaceful team, as part of Medivet we also have access to all the collective wisdom, facilities and support that that brings, including quick and easy internal referrals for virtually anything our patients may need, such as fantastic surgeons, cardiologists, MRI, CT, laparoscopy, 24-hour vet care etc. (Of course, we will also refer externally whenever appropriate!). Our branch partner Joe is a surgery certificate-holder.
