We are a well-established, local small animal practice, located in the heart of South Derbyshire. We have two sites in the villages of Willington and Etwall. We have a loyal client base from the local areas of Mickleover, Littleover, Sinfin, Stenson Fields, Melbourne, Newton Solney, Repton, Willington, Eggington, Burton, Hilton, Rolleston-on-Dove, Hatton and Etwall.

Both Beech and Etwall practices have ample on-site parking and we are able to perform home visits upon request.

We provide a range of services including vaccinations, dentistry, consultations, routine and non-routine surgeries. The practice has excellent facilities including digital radiography, ultrasonography, echocardiography, endoscopy, and bronchoscopy. We also have in-house blood machines (that enable rapid results), a centrifuge, ECG, 24hour ECG monitors and specialist anaesthesia equipment. We can perform radiography for the Kennel Club hip and elbow dysplasia schemes.

We pride ourselves in being a highly trained team with some of our nurses having further qualifications in anaesthesia and our vets having completed post-graduate training in particular subject areas.

Why choose us?

Our practice ethos is one of traditional values with modern facilities and a forward-thinking team. We pride ourselves in treating every patient as an individual and, being a small friendly team, we like that our patients get to know us well! We have a varied range of expertise from skin care to surgery and our sister practice, Sarah Smith Cardiology, has two highly trained cardiologists (heart specialists). 

We have a well-established, highly qualified nursing team who are involved in all aspects of our work and help ensure your pets have a good experience at the vets. We are able to cater for all your pet’s needs, and if your animal is particularly anxious about coming to see the vet, we will happily arrange an appointment at quieter times. We also now have separate cat and dog waiting areas and kennels at our new Etwall branch. 

We aim to provide a high standard of care at affordable prices.  Whilst formulating a treatment plan for your pet and before any surgery we will discuss the likely costs involved. 

Being very approachable we are more than happy to talk and discuss matters with you on the phone if you are unsure if your pet needs to see a vet or nurse. We would also happily welcome you if you wanted to come and look around the practice to get a feel of what we can offer your pets.

We are independently owned by Sarah Smith Cardiology in Etwall.
