Our practice is located in a large period property that has been re-modelled internally and refurbished to meet the needs of a busy 21st century veterinary practice.
On arrival, you enter our large private car park, which has marked bays for disabled drivers and also offers full disabled access to reception and client facilities.
Inside, the practice is light and airy with a pleasant welcoming atmosphere. All our clinical areas have been designed to minimize stress for our patients by using non-slip flooring and the best use of natural lighting.

The client car park gives you direct access to our open plan reception area and spacious waiting room, where you will find a member of our friendly team to greet you.
In the reception we have a retail area and stock a range of pet food and prescription diets. Weighing scales are available and we offer free weight checks to all our patients.
The practice has two consulting rooms, supported by our well stocked pharmacy offering dispensing of prescription medications. Consultations are by appointment and a 24-hour emergency service is also available.

All of our wards are centrally located within the practice so that our team can provide constant attention and nursing care to all of our patients. We have separate cat, dog and isolation wards that have been designed to accommodate patients' specific needs.
Park House Veterinary Centre is well equipped with modern surgical facilities including a large patient preparation area, dental suite and a dedicated sterile operating theatre.
Our veterinary surgeons are highly trained and experienced to perform a range of surgical procedures including soft tissue and orthopaedic work. Every patient is constantly monitored by a nurse while under anaesthetic and in recovery.
We offer an extensive range of diagnostic equipment to assist us in treating your pet, and in many cases we can provide immediate or same day results.
In 2013 we purchased a state-of-the-art, high resolution digital x-ray machine. The radiographic images are processed within seconds therefore keeping patient anaesthetic times to a minimum. The digital software can optimise the pictures giving our veterinary surgeon the best possible images.
Our ultrasound scanner uses high frequency sound waves to visualize the internal soft tissue structures of the body. We can use ultrasound images to confirm and monitor pregnancy and to produce images of other internal organs. As scanning is a safe and painless procedure it can normally be performed on conscious patients thereby giving us real time pictures.
We also have a flexible, fibre-optic endoscope that we can use to look inside otherwise inaccessible areas of the body such as the lungs or stomach. In many cases a diagnosis can be made through clinical observation, but we can also take cell and tissue samples by endoscopy thus avoiding the need for invasive surgery.
Our own in-house laboratory is fully staffed and equipped to analyse a wide range of samples giving our team access to immediate or same day results. For samples requiring further analysis we have a daily courier service to an external, specialist veterinary laboratory.
