About us

We are an independent veterinary practice with RCVS Accredited Hospital Status. We believe in treating your pets as if they were our own. We take pride in everything we do and offer the highest quality of care and treatment to your pets.

RCVS Veterinary Hospital

To be accredited as a hospital a veterinary practice must meet Core Standards, plus those of the relevant General Practice. In addition, we had to:

  • Ensure nursing staff are present on the premises round the clock, and a veterinary surgeon available 24 hours a day to attend to in-patients, if required
  • Maintain and improve clinical standards by monitoring performance and the outcome of treatments 
  • Provide a range of specialist equipment, such as specific diagnostic equipment (ECG and ultrasound)
  • Submit to rigorous examination of its premises and facilities, with emphasis on cleanliness and sterility

We believe in giving a personal and professional service to all our clients and pets. We treat you and your pets with respect and dignity at all times.

Our dedication and strong commitment to your pets has driven us to provide 24 hours a day care for our patients and we are the only practice in the surrounding area that offer emergency out of hours service using our own team in our own practice. 

We are very proud of our practice from our calm, light and airy reception areas to our state-of-the-art dog and cat operating theatres. We are a highly experienced and caring team with our vets having over a 100 years’ experience between them. We offer an individual approach to your pets’ healthcare, including tailor made preventative treatment, feeding, lifestyle and exercise plans. We are committed to you and your family from the very beginning all the way through to saying goodbye and bereavement aftercare. This ensures that we can offer the best service for all your pets. 

We have separate dog and cat waiting areas, wards, prep areas and surgical theatres. We hold the ISFM Gold Standard Cat Friendly Clinic and we also work closely with a number of charities.

Cat Friendly – We recognise that because of their unique nature and needs, taking cats to visit a veterinary clinic can be very stressful, both for cats and their caregivers. We hold the ISFM Gold Standard Cat Friendly Clinic and we also work closely with a number of feline charities. 

The Cat Friendly Clinic programme is designed to help address these issues by creating more cat friendly veterinary clinics and so reducing the stress for cats and making veterinary visits easier for caregivers as well.

To obtain Cat Friendly Status we have had to meet a large number of criteria including cat friendly handling techniques, cat specific protocols and facilities. We have separate cat waiting areas, cat only wards, cat only prep areas and a cat only surgical theatre and nurses dedicate to upholding these standards.

Nurse Training practice

We are a College of Animal Welfare (CAW) nurse training practice and we have an adaptive learning style, which allows our students to work closely with their clinical coach. Working in the practice allows the student nurses to get everyday experience with an opportunity to have a hands-on approach. Student nurses attend college for formal learning on a day release basis. If you are interested in becoming a registered veterinary nurse, see CAW for more details.
