Our hospital is brand new, purpose built and designed to keep pets comfortable and happy during their time with us. We have separate dog and cat wards, to give them peace and quiet whilst they are resting. Every patient is provided with fluffy bedding and blankets to keep them warm, litter trays, food and water where appropriate. The hospitals are air conditioned or heated to maintain a comfortable temperature and air is circulated to keep it fresh. We have the latest in x-ray, dental and in-house blood testing equipment. Feel free to ask your Petstock Vet nurse for a tour of the hospital, we would love to show you around!
Our hospital is staffed with experienced veterinarians and veterinary nurses who genuinely care about their patients and their pet parents. We know that a visit to the vet can sometimes cause anxiety for your pet (especially when they're already unwell). So we work hard to help them feel calm and comfortable during their examination. We strive to provide every customer with excellent service at each and every visit, so that you and your pet go home with a smile.
