We are a family run practice with a small close-knit team of five, so you can guarantee you will always see the same faces when you visit. Tony Everitt, the senior vet, has been running the practice for over 35 years and now runs it alongside his son Jonathan, a registered veterinary nurse and the practice manager.
Andrius and Lina are husband and wife and both qualified veterinary surgeons. They joined us in 2014 having previously seen practice at Bentley Road and will hopefully be with us for many more years to come. James also joined us early in 2014 and is now and indispensable part of the practice and will usually be your first port of call when you get to reception.
Willow is our three legged practice cat and is well known and loved (and sometimes feared) by many clients – she loves to say hello to other cats in carriers and to tease dogs in the waiting room when she can get away with it.

The front of our practice is formed from two terraced houses knocked together and the rear is purpose built to accommodate our kenneling, operating and radiography facilities.
We have a large, brightly lit waiting area where you can buy leads, toys, accessories etc. whilst you wait.
We also have a separate cat waiting area which is great for nervous cats who may not like to be too close to dogs whilst you wait.
We can usually offer you a private room if your pet isn’t good with other people or animals.
We have two spacious consulting rooms so you can bring your family or multiple pets.
We have two rooms in the back for kenneling patients so we can keep your cat or rabbit separate from noisy dogs if needs be.
We have a very spacious & well lit operating theater with a full range of anaesthetic circuits suitable for all sizes of pet.
We now have access to the next step in soft tissue surgery – the brand new Onemytis Airplasma device, click here to read about the benefits this brings to patients.
We have a comprehensive in-house laboratory – biochemistry and haematology can be run in less than 10 minutes to diagnose illnesses or just check everything is working well before giving certain drugs or undergoing anaesthesia. Urine, parasite and blood cell microscopy can be performed on site when needed.
We have a dedicated x-ray room with a mobile table that lets us move and position pets for x-rays safely and quickly. Our computed developing system that lets us transfer x-rays digitally from the x-ray plate straight to our computer so that we can show you the pictures easily or even send them to a specialist for assessment in complex or unusual cases.
Pictured below is our newest anaesthetic circuit, a modern Humphrey-ADE system, which allows for the most stable and accurate anaesthesia without dropping body temperatures with large volumes of cold gas. Alongside it is our capnograph which brings a number of safety benefits by allowing us to monitor the amount of carbon dioxide in a pet’s breaths during anaesthesia.
