About Us

We are an independent veterinary practice, operating out of four branches in Newtown, Llanidloes, Crossgates and Knighton. We have been established for over 100 years and are still proud to be owned and managed internally by members of the team. Currently, we have in excess of 20 veterinary surgeons and about 30 support staff to ensure the best quality of service. As a mixed practice, we treat all species of animal. Some of our team members have specialist interests and have achieved extra qualifications in specific areas of veterinary care. We are also registered with the RCVS as Veterinary Nurse Training Centre and provide regular placements for Veterinary Students throughout their training.

We are proud to be one of the very few practices in the area to provide our own emergency out of hours cover. This means that, in the stressful situation of an emergency, a duty vet from our own practice will be on hand to provide you with the treatment and advice you need. Our telephone line is always personally answered 24 hours a day.
