Headed up by Chris, who started at Henley House on his own, the team has grown over the years and now consists of a solid core of skilled individuals with varied experience and backgrounds, culminating in an impressive collection of veterinary experts.

We understand that you want your pet’s visit to be a positive one, which is why we have taken great lengths to minimise stress in the practice. We have separate cat and dog waiting areas and instil a calm environment in our reception area.
