The practice was originally set up in 1984 as an ambulatory equine service with some large and small animals. Over the years it has developed into an equine and small animal practice.
In 2021 Station House Vets was bought out by three of the resident vets – Clare Brash, Lucy Nowell & Vicky Williams, forming a company called Great and Small Limited. They are experienced and dedicated vets who are passionate about providing a great service to our clients and high clinical standards for their pets and horses.
We are a now a well-established team of five vets, four RVNs (one is an ECC certificate holder), two student nurses and a fantastic support team.
Station House Vets offer a full range of small animal services to our clients including visiting orthopaedic and ultrasound specialists and acupuncture.
On the equine side we offer an ambulatory service and an on-site clinic with knockdown box, stables, CCTV monitoring, stocks, trot up lane and lunge ring. We have CR and DR x-ray, mobile ultrasound, a new portable video endoscope/gastroscope and motorised dental equipment. We care for equine clients ranging from pet ponies to competition horses.
We are working toward Investors in the Environment bronze accreditation and encourage team wellbeing (currently a weekly yoga session). We also have a set lunch hour and a 5.30/6 pm finish three days a week.
The continuity of care is at the heart of everything we do. Maintaining the traditional ‘family GP’ approach is one of our core values.
Offering our own out of hours emergency service and maintaining an independent small team ethos means we can focus and maintain the core values our clients have become accustomed to.
