    Organisational background

    Drove began in Swindon as a Farm practice in 1839! Since then it changed site a few times and changed ownership even more! The current business exists as two separate entities – Drove Veterinary Hospital and Drove Farm Vets but it remains an independent practice. The current owners have exactly the same ethos as previous generations in providing the people & pets of Swindon and Wiltshire with a caring & trusted service.

    Drove Veterinary Hospital is now a state-of-the-art hospital (in Old Town, Swindon) that supports the surrounding branches of Marlborough, Wootton Bassett, Stratton, Abbey Meads, and Ridgeway Farm. Our hospital is the base for the Vets Now emergency service in Swindon and the surrounding area. The owners continue to be passionate that they are building the future of excellence in veterinary care and pass to the next generation!

We are passionate about ongoing training and professional development and we aim to achieve growth to be able to re-invest and provide the best possible care and service to our clients and their animals.

    These are consciously woven into all that happens at Drove – from our development reviews to our Thriving In Practice scheme to our expectations of colleagues. The values are visually displayed in every branch and, we hope, have become part of our culture over the past several years.

  • What makes your organization a great place to work?

    We appreciate that our people are the cornerstone of all we aspire to achieve and we go the extra mile to adapt to those wanting to achieve the right work life balance. We were winners of the SPVS/VMG Wellbeing award 2019 and are committed to treating our staff as family.
