There has been a veterinary practice on our Knowle and Bishopsworth sites since 1980! Since 1999 the practice has been owned by Paul Vokes MRCVS who is our clinical director (who qualified as a vet in 1990) and known as Avon Lodge. In recent years the addition of a major extension to our Knowle site enabled us to provide a large airy waiting and reception area, plus two large consulting rooms and a dedicated nurse clinic consulting room. As well as an in-house laboratory which enables us to rapidly diagnose your pet's condition, we also now have a digital x-ray machine so we can be thorough and prompt with treating your pet. You can even see the pictures if you'd like to!  

Our vets have a minimum of two years experience since qualifying, with 32 years being the longest! We also have a high proportion of qualified and very experienced nurses who have undergone a stringent college course for two years. This gives you peace of mind that your pet is in the best possible hands! Have a look at http://avonlodgevets.morphserve.net/team for details of all our clinical staff. 

Is your pet insured?  We are happy to consider direct claims if the treatment is £500 or more.

Bring your pet to join our happy, dedicated vet practice. You won't regret it!
