About the practice
Our caseload is very varied and we often see a good mixture of routine but also more advanced cases. We are exclusively first-opinion small animal, although we do have visiting specialists. We are big on case continuity and where we can, we are always keen to encourage our vets to reach their full potential, but never hesitate to refer cases or call in an expert, if we think it is in the best interests of the animal.
Our team are wonderful, welcoming and never short of laughs. We all work really well together and often discuss clinical cases. Our team all have their own interests and this is something we are keen to encourage and nurture! So please do speak to us about any interests/certificate goals that you may have!
