The veterinary surgeons will see you in the surgery by appointment, which can be made with reception. However, urgent cases can still be seen on the same day. We aim to offer a continuity of care, so where possible your pet can be seen by the veterinary surgeon that has been treating them.
We are happy to visit owner’s premises and make house calls for all species. We do however recommend where possible that you bring patients to the surgery where extensive facilities and trained staff are available. When visits are required we would ask, except in the case of emergencies, that you telephone the surgery before 9.30am for a visit the same day.

A commercial pathological laboratory is used as necessary, as is referral to specialist centres.
