24th May – Rest assured we are here for you and your pet. We continue to offer most services by appointment only including medication collections. We will be prioritising the care of sick pets so non-urgent problems may be delayed. Please get in touch by phone or PetsApp to arrange an appointment. If possible please use PetsApp to order repeat medications, leaving phone lines free for the owners of sick pets. For now, you will be allowed in with your pet but will wait in the car. When you arrive please wear a mask (unless medically exempt) and come into reception to check-in without your pet. Click here for further information

NEW! Live chat and Vet video consultations
We are proud to announce that thanks to our various wonderful technology partners we have rolled out our text based chat app.
You can use the app to talk to our team about general enquiries, for making medication requests and for booking appointments. We also have the ability to provide video consultations when needed.
We think this will be an essential addition to our ongoing service through these difficult times and in the future.
