Work Starts On New Extension

We are very excited that work started in August on our brand new extension which will provide new operating theatres & a diagnostic imaging suite.

We aim to keep any disruption to a minimum & apologise for any inconvenience during the period of the works but we are sure it will be worth it !

IMPORTANT - MICROCHIPPING NEW LEGAL REQUIREMENT

It is now compulsory for all owners to ensure their dog is microchipped.

The new legislation not only covers the microchipping of your dog but also the contact details held by the microchip company. 

Any owner found without their dog microchipped or out of date contact details could be fined up to £500 by the local authority.

New Saturday Opening Times from 14th June 2014

For the convenience of our customers we are now extending our Saturday opening times to include Saturday afternoons between 1pm and 4pm. Appointments can be made in the usual way by telephoning the Practice on 01509 212437. Outside the surgery hours the usual Emergency Service applies.

Jenny rescues trapped hedgehog

A five-week-old hedgehog had to be saved from a drainage pipe in a rescue effort which took over eight hours.

Jenny, one of our vets, had been hand-rearing the hedgehog since it was brought in to us, but it made an escape from her home.

Firemen arrived on the scene and were able to find the hedgehog in a drainage pipe using a special camera but, despite trying for over three hours, they were unable to coax it out.

Jenny and her family persevered and "Little Hog" was finally lifted to safety later that evening.
