About our Ipswich clinic

OPENING TIMES

The clinic is open every Tuesday and Friday from 11.30am – 1pm for walk-in appointments.

FACILITIES

There are no surgical facilities or a laboratory on site, so for operations, blood tests or X-rays you will need to visit a private veterinary practice.

BENEFITS

Please bring proof that you are in receipt of benefits when you visit the clinic.

MEDICATIONS

To order repeat prescriptions, including for flea and worm treatment, pets must have seen the vet in the last 6 months.

Any medication needs to be ordered 1 week in advance.
