We would like to apologise for the inconvenience currently being experienced at Ashgrove Vets which is due to major changes happening within the practice – this has been over Wednesday and Thursday 28/28 September 2018.
The changes are an upgrade of the current practice management system and new flooring being laid on the lower level which means we are unable to admit operations until tomorrow (Friday 29 September 2018) when we hope to return to normal.
Thank you for being patient with us.

It is that time of year again when we are having very warm weather and reminders need to be made about dogs being left in cars and exercised on hot pavements. Please note the attached poster to ensure you can walk your pets comfortably as we do not wish to have blistered paws.
**Please also remember about leaving dogs in cars during this very warm spell as cars can heat up in no time*:
Many people still believe that it’s ok to leave a dog in a car on a warm day if the windows are left open or they’re parked in the shade, but the truth is, it is still a very dangerous situation for the dog as cars increase the temperature to your dog.
If you see a dog in distress in a hot car, dial 999.
