Our Practice

    

Our site at Gillingham was started in 1972. It has undergone numerous enlargements and improvements over the years and now boasts a car park for a dozen cars, large air-conditioned waiting room and three consult rooms. We have a pharmacy, laboratory, isolation area, cat ward, dog ward, preparation area, dedicated sterile operating theatre, a second operating theatre and a dedicated diagnostic imaging room.

We have invested heavily in the most up-to-date equipment and we have tried to make it a one stop shop where pretty well all of your pet's health requirements can be found under one roof- just like a BUPA hospital!

Our veterinarians are all experienced general practitioners with a broad knowledge and understanding of animal health, illnesses and injuries.
