We, Mary and Paula, have set up this veterinary practice between Warwick and Leamington Spa so that we can look after pets and their owners the way we would like to be looked after. It is important to us that you feel comfortable leaving your pets in our care. We will strive to treat your animals with the high care they deserve and the service you would like. Our aim is to be open and approachable, and give you the options on your pet’s treatment. Every case is individual and deserves to be treated as such. We pride ourselves on being an independent practice that allows us the freedom to choose the best choices for your pet, whether that be the drugs we choose or the specialist we refer to.
We are experienced practitioners with many years behind us. This is invaluable in helping us diagnose problems and being able to discuss treatment options. We are keen surgeons and take pride in our daily work, whilst enjoying the relationships we build up with pets over the years. So if you are looking for a vets in Warwick or Leamington Spa please get in touch with us.
We aim to be fair, competitive and open in our pricing. Please feel free to ask us for estimates for any procedure.
We are conveniently situated on the Emscote Road A445, the main road between Warwick and Leamington Spa and with easy access from Kenilworth, Leek Wootton and the A46 via the A429 Coventry Road and Montague Road onto Charles Street.
Our front entrance is between the Lord Nelson and the Barber shop, not far from Tesco and there is a lay by with some parking on the main road.
We also have a dedicated car park behind our building and an entrance from there. There are no steps, which allows easy access. To get to our car park turn into Charles Road at the traffic lights in front of the Lord Nelson, right if coming from Leamington Spa, left if coming from Warwick town centre, drive past the pub car park and turn left into the private road with our sign on the immediately after the brick wall. Our car park is off to the left and our spaces are signed.
We feel a visit to the vets should be a pleasant experience, so we have an open bright reception with two comfy waiting areas so that dogs and cats/small pets can be seated separately.
Consulting Rooms We are very lucky to have found a building that has allowed us to design a veterinary surgery from scratch. This allows us to have 3 consulting rooms to allow us flexibility, including a dedicated nurse consulting room, which allows us to offer you greater range of clinics and advice from our qualified nurses.
Wards Our practice is unusual in that we have been able to fit in 4 separate wards: dog, cat and rabbit/small furry and also a small isolation ward to allow us to nurse infectious cases away from other inpatients. This was very important to us as it helps to minimise stress for our patients.
Theatre, Prep Room and Imaging Our prep room is well equipped with a hydraulic table to make smooth, stress free lifting of the larger dogs. We have a tub table that is perfect for dental procedures and for bathing pets. Minor procedures such as blood sampling may be performed here, but importantly this is where are patients are anaesthetised and operations sites clipped and prepared aseptically. They are then transferred into our new theatre which has minimal fittings, and piped oxygen to allow it to be easy to keep sterile. The walls are coved and we have a viewing window so other staff can watch without having to enter.
Our imaging room houses our x-ray generator and digital system and our ultrasound machine. Our x-ray images being digital can then be attached to each patients records.
Rabbit/Small furry work
Rabbits and small pets are sadly neglected on most veterinary degrees, yet they are a rewarding pets, with great individuality. Over the last 12 years Paula has been seeing increasing numbers. This was triggered by a local rabbit rescue, who insisted all rabbits were neutered and deserved good veterinary care. This has lead to hundreds of routine neutering operations and many non routine. Difficult cases have lead to extra research and attending specific rabbit veterinary updates, enabling us to keep at the cutting edge of knowledge, and finding more drugs that we can use in rabbits, and knowing the best doses.
Rabbit medicine is moving very quickly as we learn more, so it is vital to make sure your rabbit is seen by an vet interested in these lovely animals. It is important to note that there are very few licensed drugs in small pets, so we may ask you to sign a consent form acknowledging that where appropriate we have permission to use unlicensed drugs.
