IMG_4578Although we have worked within the Chepstow area for over 50 years, we moved to our current Chepstow town centre practice in 1989. Since then we have grown to providing care for thousands of clients in the area.

We are very proud that the clinic in Chepstow has been officially recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as an accredited ‘General Practice Tier 2’. This means that we have passed a rigorous inspection and met a range of minimum standards including hygiene, 24 hour emergency cover, staff training, and medical equipment and procedures.

Our surgery is open for appointments 6 days a week.

As well as having local vets on duty 24 hours a day, the practice boasts the most up to date veterinary equipment. This ensures that we can diagnose and treat your pet quickly and efficiently.

Some of those facilities include:

 

IMG_4589Consulting Rooms

We have 2 spacious consulting rooms for vet and nurse appointments throughout the day.

Operating Theatres

The clinic in Chepstow has 2 fully equipped operating theatres. One is used for general surgery and one for dental work, for example routine cleaning as well as surgical tooth extractions. We also perform both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery as well as routine neutering. These facilities allow us to perform most surgery on-site, ensuring your pet is given the best possible care.

Laboratory

We have a full in-house laboratory and dedicated laboratory technician, which enables us to run blood, urine, faeces, hair and skin samples and for many things can get the results within a few hours. We can also assess cell samples looking for diseases such as cancer. The rapid diagnosis allows us to make the best decision for our patients without any delay.

Care Ward

All patients that are kept at the surgery at Chepstow, have large comfortable cages for all sizes of cats and dogs and a quiet area for smaller animals or those of a shy nature!

Ultrasound

The ultrasound machine allows us to investigate many medical conditions, including pregnancy! It is the imaging technique of choice for looking at soft structures such as the heart, liver and kidneys.

Digital Xray

This in-house facility again ensures we can quickly investigate injuries and illnesses. Xrays are most useful for looking at hard structures such as bones and teeth and for assessing the lungs.

Ophthalmic facilities

We have a range of specialist equipment to allow investigation of conditions such as glaucoma and retinal disease. We perform some eye surgery on site.

ECG

ECG equipment is used to assess heart rhythm disease and for monitoring our patients during surgery.

Bathing Facilities

We have bathing facilities available, big enough for even giant dogs! We also offer a de-matting and basic grooming service.

Car Park

There is a large, free car park.
