Pound Corner • Wangford • NR34 8RS
… your award winning, independent small animal practice

We welcome every visitor equally regardless of their physical, sensory or mental capacity. We are, however, honest about our rural location and the limitation that this can impose.

We aim to provide a quality service within these limitations and continually strive to improve so that as many people as possible can access veterinary care for their pets.

This access statement does not contain personal opinions as to our suitability for those with disabilities, but aims to accurately describe the facilities and services that we offer all our clients and visitors.

We currently offer:

  • We have a comprehensive and wide ranging website.
  • Any questions please feel free to contact us by email, phone or in person.
