Following on from the Prime Minister’s announcement on 21/2/2022 and so that we can continue to provide the essential services required for our clients and patients, we respectfully request that you continue to wear face coverings when you visit the practice. Due to the size of our consultation rooms we will continue to restrict occupancy levels in those areas. Thank you for your understanding.
For repeat medication requests, please order at least 24 hours in advance by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01458 832972. You will be requested to pay prior to collection.

Eagle eyed clients may have noticed a slight change at Orchard Vets recently. On our literature and letterheads a small “ltd” has appeared. Those three letters signify that, after eighty years of being a partnership (for so long the traditional model for veterinary businesses), we have now become a limited company.
You might be asking what this means for you and your pet. The answer is a reassuring “nothing”. You’ll be delighted to hear that Orchard Vets will be continuing to be a proudly independent, privately owned general veterinary practice. We will continue to be open for you seven days a week and to provide out of hours emergency care ourselves, operating out of our spacious, custom-built veterinary clinic at any hour, night or day. There will be no change in our high standards of service, our professionalism and our commitment to excellence in all things from clinical work to customer service to continuing training and development for all staff.
Our excellent Pet Health Scheme will continue to allow you to manage the costs of looking after your pet at a discount and in easy monthly payments and our nurses will still be doing free nursing clinics, offering advice on that new puppy or kitten or what to do about fleas, worms and other creepy-crawlies and our reception staff will be their same welcoming selves with biscuits at the ready to charm our animal visitors.
In short we are proud to announce it is definitely “business as usual” here at Orchard Vets!
