About Us

Our Services

Hospitalisation facilities are provided for those unwell requiring nursing care and those recovering from operations. Our kennels are maintained to the highest standard of hygiene. We also have oxygen chamber kennels and pods

Repeat prescriptions.

We aim to fulfil requests for repeat prescriptions within 24 hours. Please do order as early as you can though! You can order online or call us.


We are fortunate to have very skilled surgeons in house who are confident in many surgical procedures. Surgery is performed on the premises. Two dedicated operating theatres are fully equipped to cope with a wide range of orthopaedic, soft tissue and dental surgery. We are also equipped with a modern laparoscope for modern keyhole surgery. Keyhole spays are now our norm, with less pain and faster recovery.


Anaesthesia is now a relatively safe procedure using modern equipment and drugs. Patients are closely watched by trained staff and continually assessed by a state of the art respiratory and ECG monitor.
