About us

Our founder Andy Matthew knew from the offset that our practice needed to be different, and set out to establish a community practice that could deliver a personal service to all.

After opening our first branch in Bournemouth in 2012, an ambitious redevelopment of an art deco bank building, it soon became clear that our unique values and fabulous services were a winning combination!  

Our Poole surgery, converted from the iconic Darby’s Corner pub building, soon followed, and allowed us to introduce additional facilities and services.

Both sites offer cheerful, welcoming environments where you and your pet can feel truly at ease, alongside advanced hospital and surgical facilities that allow us to treat all manner of cases onsite. 

We aim to be modern and progressive, and provide unrivalled facilities and expertise, an ethical service and clinical excellence to local pets and charities.  

Great veterinary care shouldn’t cost the earth, and we aim to provide an accessible service for all by offering a range of treatments to suit all budgets.

We’ve gathered together a like minded group of talented vets, nurses and support team members that share this belief, and many of whom have qualifications and experience in areas such as orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery, medicine, rehabilitation and acupuncture.  

Not only can you make the most of fantastic consults and clinics, but we also offer support and advice to owners via email, to ensure that great veterinary care is never far away.

We also like to give back by helping local and international conservational and charitable initiatives, so you can be sure that you’re supporting a community facility that everyone can be proud of. 

None of our achievements would be possible without the incredible support of our clients, and we can’t wait to see you and your pet at your next appointment!
