Our vet facilities at Cranborne

Our 17 strong team has been serving the community and animals in Dorset and the New Forest since 2004.

We’re a first opinion vet practice that offers exceptional standards of care to any species of animal. Based at two sites, Cranborne and Fordingbridge in the New Forest, we’re a 17 strong team of vets, nurses and receptionists dedicated to ensuring the health and welfare of your pet. Our ethos is to treat each and every animal we see as if it were our own. Nothing is too much trouble and our aim is to always go the extra mile to make sure the treatment your animal receives is the best available.

Both our practices are equipped with operating theatres, gas machines and dental equipment, but our main surgery in Fordingbridge has state-of-the-art digital X-Ray, M-Turbo ultrasound, a comprehensive laboratory comprising equipment for blood gas analysis as well as full haematological, biochemical and electrolyte analysis. We run our own faecal worm egg testing, do in-house cytology and have separate dog and cat wards for ultimate peace of mind. Our dedicated surgical suite is equipped with pulse oximetry and climate control.
