Facilities

Pilgrims Veterinary Service Cranborne Dorset
Pilgrims Veterinary Service Dorset & New Forest
Pilgrims Veterinary Service

Pilgrim’s modern practice facilities and mobile vet equipment complements our comprehensive range of services. This combination allows us to optimise the standard of care we are able to offer the pets, horses & farm animals of the New Forest.

Both our practices boast state-of-the-art operating theatres. In addition, our main surgery in Fordingbridge  also has a fully equipped laboratory.  Ongoing investment in these facilities means we can do more for the animals in our care without transporting them. This is an approach that has promoted much better healthcare outcomes in our patients.
