Emergency cases are seen whenever possible. Please contact the practice on 01932 220768 who will arrange for Charlie to discuss the case with you.

We only take cases arranged from Veterinary Surgeons, not directly from clients, and will always refer back to the primary veterinary practice for all other treatment.

Pet Owners

Please bring your animal starved on the day of the consulation in case we need to perform sedation or anaesthesia.

We regret that we can not offer advice on particular conditions over the phone without prior referral from your primary veterinary surgery. Please contact them if you would like a second opinion consultation.
