COVID update – although we have relaxed our requirements with regard to face coverings and occupancy levels, if you are demonstrating any COVID signs please do not come in to the surgery.  Instead, give us a call on 01458 832972 and we can help assess your pet’s needs.

For repeat medication requests, please order at least 24 hours in advance by emailing us at or by telephoning 01458 832972. You will be requested to pay prior to collection.

Our current opening times can be found here

Each month we introduce you a pet of the month which we think you’ll find interesting. Maybe for its condition, its bravery or perhaps just for its character.

Do you think your pet deserves to be recognised as Orchard Vets pet of the month?

To be considered please email us at explaining why you think he or she is deserving, a recent photo (max 5mb in .jpg or .png format), a short biography and your pet’s favourite activity or place. Sadly, we won’t be able to publish all requests and there aren’t any prizes, only bragging rights should your pet be chosen!
