We would like to warmly welcome you as a client to Downes Veterinary Surgeons.

Our practice….. Downes is a high quality, caring, independent veterinary practice established by James Downes in 1972.

Our friendly, dedicated teams of veterinary surgeons, nurses and support staff work in partnership with you, the client, to provide the very best level of care for your pets. This is underpinned by regular, ongoing, investment in equipment, treatments and staff training, keeping up to date with developments in the veterinary field.

Each of our 3 surgeries have fully equipped operating theatres and hospitalisation facilities. To help us rapidly diagnose your pet’s problems we have digital Xray machines, ultrasonography and on-site laboratory equipment for analyzing blood and urine samples.

It is important to us that our clients can build a longterm relationship of trust with the practice and see the vet of their choice where possible. Our computer system is linked between all three of our surgeries, enabling our vets to access your pets notes from any of the surgeries and enabling our receptionists to book appointments that are convenient for you.

At Downes we aim:

  • To provide the very best veterinary service to our clients.
  • To provide high quality veterinary care in every circumstance.
  • To help our patients live longer, happier and healthier lives,
  • and at all times to treat our clients, our patients, and our colleagues with respect.

We do our very best to do this statement for all our clients.
