About Us

Learn more about us

There has been a veterinary practice on our Knowle and Bishopsworth sites since 1980! Since 1999 and until recently the practice has been owned by Paul Vokes MRCVS, who is our clinical director.

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 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!  We also have a state of the art ultrasound machine and operating theatre with equipment similar to that of a human hospital. 

Our vets have a minimum of two years experience since qualifying, with 30 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! Learn more about our team.

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!
