About Us
We are a really friendly team of 4 Vets, 6 Nurses, 2 Receptionists and a Practice Manager. We have 2 surgeries, both with lovely clients. Our Shenley surgery is in the middle of a beautiful park, with an apple orchard opposite. Edgware is more urban; both have plenty of parking. We really value our nursing staff and encourage special interests, - nurses have their own consulting room at Shenley, plus a lovely 'quiet room' for delicate situations.
