ABOUT THE SURGERY
We opened as a branch practice of Spring Lodge Veterinary Hospital in 1997, and are situated in the village centre.
Our main veterinary surgeons are Ira Williams, Lydia Bull, Katie Wilder and Ana Dias. They are assisted by our experienced reception staff Sally, Coral and Jacqui (and Jacqui’s dog Teddy!) who are there to answer any questions, provide advice and book appointments.
Sophie, our practice nurse, offers regular nursing clinics for microchipping, nail clipping, health advice and preventative health treatments.
Any animals requiring hospitalisation or operations are transported in our ambulance to our Witham Hospital for the team of vets and qualified nurses to care for.
They are an independent company who provide the equivalent of a pet A&E department for local practices during the night and weekends.
We are lucky, as this service is run from our Witham Hospital so your animal can receive care 24 hours a day once it has been admitted to our Hospital.
