Priory Close Veterinary Practice

MORE INFORMATION

Introduction

We are an independent practice, in Taunton, that has been looking after local pets for over 35 years.

We care for dogs, cats and small furries in Taunton, North Petherton and Bishops Lydeard, providing traditional values with modern facilities and techniques.

We cover most aspects of veterinary surgery and medicine including vaccinations, routine and emergency services, medical investigations, dental work, dietary advice, etc.

We strongly believe in preventative care for your pet but if your pet becomes ill, we can offer you the most up to date treatments to find out the problem effectively and quickly.

We provide our own out of hours service, in familiar surroundings and with our own team of vets and nurses. If your pet falls ill or is injured, we will be there for you, whatever the time of day. We provide our emergency vet service to our clients in Taunton and the surrounding areas, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We are approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) as a practice that can train small animal nurses. We invest strongly in training and equipment to be able to continue our practice’s long tradition of high standards and to care for your pet as you would wish.
