We have been in our purpose built practice in Horam for over 20 years  and have recently opened a branch surgery in Ringmer. We have full surgical and laboratory facilities at both sites.

We have over 32 years of experience. With our passion for helping animals and our commitment to customer care, we are the team to trust when your animal becomes unwell.

We've built our reputation in East Sussex (and surrounding areas) by hiring a passionate team who understand how important every pet is to its owner. And because we care, we will treat each animal with love and respect it deserves. Why expect anything less? 

Give us a call to book a consultation, or if you're a new customer please complete Client Registration form above.

If you are unable to find the information you require or need any of the information in a different format please contact the surgery.
