We offer a number of valuable online services to our clients

Welcome to Penrose Veterinary Group

While COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease across the UK, Penrose Vets wants to continue to provide dedicated care to our clients and their pets.
For the protection of our staff, and to enable them to continue to provide their essential service, we ask that when visiting our surgeries, you continue to wear masks and use the provided hand sanitizer on arrival and departure.
We recognise that the wearing of face coverings will no longer be mandatory after the 19 July, but we have only one ask – please continue to wear your masks when visiting the surgery.
However, we do hope you will support our ongoing commitment to caring for your pets.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

When it comes to your pet, we know as well as you do that they are very much a part of your family.

They deserve the best treatment, lots of love and attention, and the chance to remain happy and healthy for as long as possible.

We have all the facilities required to ensure that your pet can be well cared for on-site. So, whether your pet just requires routine check-ups and preventative treatment, or might need some more complex or investigative work at some point in their life, you can rest assured you’ve come to the right place at Penrose Veterinary Group.
