Meet the Team

Our team

Every member of our team is dedicated to providing the best of care for you and your pet. They will be professional but also friendly and caring. Our staff are all well qualified and stay up to date with a full programme of Continuing Professional Development. We are also inspected and approved as a Veterinary Nurse Training Centre. And we are proud to be one of a small number of veterinary practices that have met the standards of Investors in People. We have been inspected and accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons since 2006.

Small enough to care

We aim to be efficient and professional without losing the essential compassion and empathy that bigger practices can lack.  We are a small team; we hope you will be on first name terms with Vets, Nurses and Reception Staff.

We think it is important that you can see the same Vet every time you visit; it builds friendship and trust, and it helps case continuity.

We will look after you and your pets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

And in an emergency you will see one of our Vets, in our practice – not a stranger in an emergency practice 25 miles away with none of your pet’s previous health records.
