We are a small animal hospital in Gorleston and a small animal practice in Lowestoft, first established in 1984. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and provide our own 24-hour emergency care at our Gorleston Hospital.
