Welcome to our website! Please have a look at the following pages to get an idea of our purpose built practice or even better, come in for a tour and meet the staff. Our practice is centrally located for easy access from most of Telford and there is plenty of safe, easy parking right outside the door.
Our veterinarian, Garth Tozer, is currently the only fulltime vet at the practice and this ensures continuity of care for your pet. We also use only a very limited number of locum vets when Garth is away. The aim of our vets and all our staff is for every owner and pet to feel at ease at all times and we believe we truly would be your pet's choice if he or she could decide where to be treated.
We are now the only non corporate owned practice in Telford and are very proud of our independant status and will continue to offer the personal care that has become synonymous with our veterinary centre.
Our first class facilities and equipment enable us to offer many professional services including consultations, vaccinations, microchips, surgery (routine neutering to more complex operations), radiography, laser therapy, laboratory testing, a grooming salon and much more. We also offer advice on correct nutrition and general care of your pet.
Winter is now upon us and provides the opportunity for lots of long walks with our dogs on brisk winter days. There are, however, some things to consider regarding our pets in the cold weather.
Both dogs and cats when spending time indoors with central heating on can start to develop dry skin and associated itchy conditions - there are some very effective skin supplements such as Nutramega which can help with these problems and some shampoos are also effective in calming dry, itchy skin.
Fleas do not seem to have reduced in number this year so effective ongoing flea control is also important.
When taking dogs out for walks in snowy weather, be aware that hidden sharp objects can cause damage to sensitive pads on dogs' feet- leather boots can help with this but still be careful where you go- ideally areas you were familiar with prior to the snow. Just as with people, icy weather can lead to sprains and ligament damage if animals slip so perhaps do not allow off lead running or ball chasing in these conditions.
Small furries (rabbits, Guinea pigs etc) that are kept outdoors must either be brought indoors or supplied with heating and plenty of bedding material during the winter months.
