At O’Connor Julian Vets we have developed a busy small animal practice over many years. This growing part of our practice culminated in us moving into our new state-of-the-art purpose built veterinary hospital in 2016 which achieved hospital status on the VCI Practice Accreditation Scheme. Our new premises and facilities have allowed us to further enhance the level of care we provide.
We have a dedicated team of specialised small animal vets and nurses who are focused on providing a premium veterinary service to our clients and their pets. The health, welfare and comfort of your pet is our primary concern.
