The Veterinary Centre was established in 1945 and is currently owned by the partners Mr Leslie Snadden and Ms Audrey Adams.

Mr Snadden and Ms Adams are graduates from the University of Glasgow Veterinary School and have been practicing as veterinary surgeons for over 30 years.

Mr Snadden joined The Veterinary Centre in the early 1980’s after gaining experience in veterinary practices across Scotland and Lancashire.

Ms Adams spent some years working in Yorkshire and as a locum, before joining The Veterinary Centre in the mid 1990’s.

Together, Mr Snadden and Ms Adams have worked tirelessly to build The Veterinary Centre into the reputable practice that it is today. They work alongside 3 other Veterinary Surgeons and 6 qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses.

Our veterinary and nursing staff are assisted by a team of friendly receptionists and animal care assistants who are dedicated to caring for your pets needs.

All of our staff are devout animal lovers, so we understand how important and loved your pets are. We are also enthusiastic, professional and 100% committed to providing the very best standards of care for you and your pet.

The Veterinary Centre is proud to be approved and accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme, an honour that we are driven to maintain.

The Veterinary Centre is also recognised by the RCVS as a training practice for students in veterinary science and veterinary nursing.

We primarily treat cats and dogs, but we also see small furry animals (e.g. guinea pigs, rabbits and hamsters). We offer a wide range of services and in-house procedures. It is practice policy that every one of our registered pets is to be treated as if they were our own.

Extreme measures were taken by Mr Snadden to remove a cat’s nails today…. 😬

Rest assured the cat remains intact and the nails beautifully trimmed, but the jammed padlock on the crate is now kaput!
