The Practice

The Practice is a growing, non-corporate practice whose priority is to provide every client and pet with a personal service tailored to their needs.

The practice was originally a mixed practice in a pleasant semi-rural area, the workload is now almost 100% small animal.

They have the latest, up to date equipment, which includes surgical facilities, X-ray, ultrasound, ECG, endoscopes, and blood analysers in order to care for a varied case load.

Part of their excellent service is the ability to make house calls, although for some procedures done would need the patient to come to the surgery.

Their experienced nurses are happy to give general advice and are able to dispense flea and worm treatments, and will carry out weight checks without an appointment

This is a great chance to be involved in an independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
