Our practice originally housed a human surgeon
Our London Road branch is located in a large, old Victorian house that was built in the 1850s. It is believed that the house was designed to cater for a human surgeon, who would also live there out of operating hours.
Previously to our ownership of the premises, a gentleman named Brian Potter ran a small animal practice from it single handedly. He lived above his practice in one of the many rooms of the house, and sold the business to us in 1982 when he retired after 20 years of service.
The size of the building provides us with a number of benefits, including a spacious operating theatre. Our theatre has some of the most advanced veterinary equipment and machines to enable us to conduct safe and beneficial operations for small animals. We have a range of diagnostic, surgical and dental equipment, as well as an X-ray, ECG, Ultrasound, Endoscopy, high speed dental machine and equipment to carry out Cryotherapy.
We appreciate that pets need somewhere calm and comfortable to rest when they’re in our care. We have separate wards for cats, dogs, rabbits and exotic animals to keep the peace, and ensure your pet is happy at all times.
Having an in-house laboratory is invaluable in cases that require medical results quickly. It often means that we can administer successful and effective treatment the same day conditions are diagnosed.
Our London Road branch is perfectly situated between our Wigston and Leicester Forest East branches. This means that should your pet need to be transferred between branches for any reason, they can be moved quickly and efficiently.
