We are a small animal practice in the heart of the Peak District. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to our own 24-hour emergency care that our own vets are responsible for at the practice.
