pomeranianSpring Lodge Veterinary Hospital has been caring for animals in Witham for more than forty years, evolving from a chicken farm to a veterinary surgery in the 1950′s.

Since that time the practice has had three owners with the current owner Neil Hodson taking charge in 1992.

The main surgery at Witham gained hospital status in 1998 and has recently been re inspected and passed to ensure it still fulfils this title.

The practice has grown since 1992, from an existing staff of five to over 45 experienced members of staff. The Tiptree centre opened in 1997 and in 1999 the surgery in Great Notley Garden Village opened its doors.

Spring Lodge took over the running of Mintern And Hill Vets, located in Chelmsford, in 2009. Ingatestone Veterinary Centre is also part of the Spring Lodge Team and its purpose built centre opened in 2008.

Consultations take place at all branches. All surgical & medical cases requiring further treatment are either dealt with on site or transferred to the main hospital in Witham via one of our veterinary ambulances.

We also provide veterinary nurse consultations for nail clipping, microchipping, behaviour advice and general health checks.

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive service for all clients in a friendly and efficient manner. If you would like further information on the services on offer please contact 01376 513247, or use the Contact Us link.

Our ‘out of hours’ care is provided by Vets Now Ltd.

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.
