We’re joining TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham and the University of Bristol’s Big Tick Project this summer to look at rising tick numbers and the risk to our dogs and ourselves from tick-borne diseases such as Lyme Disease. As one of the vet practices across the UK taking part, we will be carrying out tick checks on dogs coming into the surgery and sending any ticks found to the University of Bristol for analysis. Anyone whose dog takes part in this ground-breaking research will receive a Big Tick Project certificate and help progress veterinary and human medicine.

Our clients regularly send us letters, cards and emails thanking us for the care taken with their pets. It's now possible to review us online too through Google+, Yahoo and our own website on our "contact us" page.
Fleas and Ticks - What a nuisance. Longer evenings, longer walks and more likely your pets will pick up some unwelcome parasites. Treatments are available in both a palatable tablet and in "spot-on" form to deal effectively with fleas and ticks simultaneously. Ask your vet how to tackle this nuisance and prevent the spread of fleas to other pets in your home.
We are a modern, purpose-built veterinary surgery providing preventative and emergency pet care with a dedicated small animal team, We also have 3 other practices which cover specific ambulatory requirements for equine, farm animals and pigs. Visit our website for more information.
