About us

We have a small team of dedicated farm animal vets who between them hold a huge range of experience including European college diplomas and further qualifications in reproduction, lameness and infectious disease management. 

All our vets are Official Veterinarians (O.V.) so can TB test all species as well as carry out disease surveillance on other diseases on behalf of the A.P.H.A. Our on-site laboratory and post-mortem facilities enable us to make quick diagnoses, which is vital during a disease outbreak.

We are proud to be part of the University of Bristol Vet School and play our part in educating the vets of the future. This enables us to offer unique services to improve the level of care and expertise we can provide to your animals. This includes our specialist led referral service for small ruminants, camelids, pigs and poultry. Cases will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and we are always happy to discuss cases and give advice although in general we cannot accept emergency referral cases.
