Our practice has been caring for pets for over 100 years and we pride ourselves on providing gold standard veterinary medicine. Our tier 3 hospital has excellent facilities and equipment and hosts our dedicated out of hours service.

We have a fantastic, experienced and friendly clinical team with many certificate holders and we support and encourage CPD (including certificate study). We have all the equipment available to enable full work up of cases in house – digital radiography including dental radiography, advanced ultrasound machine with an extensive range of probes, video-endoscopy (gastroscope, bronchoscope and small rigid endoscopes), multi-parameter anaesthetic monitoring, tonometry, etc. We have just opened a new wing at our hospital with a state-of-the-art operating theatre, treatment rooms and a calm and spacious cat ward. We are also very proud of The Cromwell ARC – a purpose-built physiotherapy and hydrotherapy unit with aquatic treadmill and K-Laser, run by our two qualified physiotherapists.

We are very fortunate that many of our staff have been part of ‘The Cromwell Family’ for many years and as a team, we are very caring and supportive of one another. Wellbeing is top of the agenda and important to us all – we encourage a better work life balance and have a fantastic team of wellbeing champions.

We enjoy being part of our communities and attending local events to run fun dog shows raising money each year for our chosen charity and encouraging team members to take part. Cromwell Vets also holds regular social events, including summer events, impromptu lunchtime barbeques, and the famous annual Christmas party.
