Welcome To Our Website!
We are a small animal veterinary practice situated in a rural location on the Eynsham Park Estate, Freeland near Witney. The practice is in a converted 18th Century Coach House and has an ambience of tranquillity with plenty of parking. We care for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and other small furries.
We pride ourselves in being able to offer our clients a modern yet traditional, friendly and affordable service, where your pet's healthcare is paramount to us, as well as looking after you, the owner.
We have fifteen minute consultations which can be extended if needed. We are a small practice so we can offer you and your pets a very personal service. Despite our size we have a full range of services, including in-house blood testing, digital X rays, dental Xrays, ultrasound, operating theatre and a range of other diagnostic tests.
Please look at our "What we do" page below to see our range of services.
COVID-19 UPDATE- updated 5th January 2021
New Year, New Lock Down! Covid-19 Update and Pet Travel.
Following last nights National Lockdown announcement we would like to reassure clients that the practice will remain open, as before. Our opening times will remain the same, 8 am to 6.30 pm Monday to Friday, closed on Saturdays apart from emergencies from 9-noon.
We are waiting to hear from our governing bodies to see if there will be any changes to the way we are allowed to operate.
For the time being we will be continuing with appointments and if there are any changes we will contact you.
Please do not come to the practice if you or a household member have symptoms of Covid-19 or have been asked to self isolate. If you have and your pet requires treatment please phone us and we can discuss the situation and how to handle it going forward.
• Unfortunately we still cannot allow clients into the building. Please arrive at the correct time for your appointment. This will help us to keep the number of people in the car park to a minimum.
• Please continue to park in the allocated ‘client parking’ spaces, on the right hand side of the yard. The left hand side is for use by the stables’ clients.
•On arrival we ask that you REMAIN IN YOUR CAR. A member of staff will come out to you as soon as they are available.
• Your dog should be kept on a lead AT ALL TIMES, with a collar or harness that cannot slip off. This is particularly important as vehicles will be entering the yard and horses may be around. All other animals should be kept in a secure carrier/cage.
• When asked to do so please attach your dog by their lead to the parking station or put your pet carrier on the table. A member of staff will then take them inside for their consultation. Please return to your car and the vet will come outside to discuss the case with you after the consultation.
• Payment will be taken via card, either contactless or entered manually like a telephone payment. We are not accepting cash or cheques at this time unless absolutely necessary.
• We require 48 hours notice for all prescription and food supply requests.
• All of the above operating procedures will be in place for the foreseeable future.
• Thank you again for bearing with us during these difficult times. It is our aim to provide a safe environment for all our clients and their pets, the neighbouring businesses and our staff, while still providing all necessary treatment and medicines for your pets.
Those of you who travel abroad with your pets will be aware of the post Brexit changes. Please check the gov.uk website for the latest information. The main conditions/changes are:
• Your pet must have a microchip.
• Your pet must have an up-to-date rabies vaccination.
• You must wait 3 weeks before you can leave the UK after a rabies vaccination.
• Blood tests are no longer required.
• You must have an Animal Health Certificate (AHC) issued by a vet within 10 days of travel to the EU. This is valid for 4 months for onward travel in the EU.
• The blue EU passport is no longer a valid document to enter the EU but we do recommend keeping it together with your AHC.
• You will need a new AHC every time you leave the UK for the EU.
• You will still require a tapeworm treatment to be given by a vet in Europe between 1 and 5 days before return to the UK.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or worries either by email - [email protected] or telephone on 01993 880551
Happy New Year to all our clients.
