About the Practice:

They are a busy, 4 site practice located in the beautiful Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty and located within commuting distance of London.

They also believe that advanced training for nurses is important and have a number of Registered Veterinary Nurses undergoing certificates. They have their own rehab team, with a qualified physiotherapist and 2 class IV lasers.
