Update to Booking Appointments Online

We have now reinstated online bookings for our Wayside (Chester) and Borras Park (Wrexham) branches ONLY

Due to the increased demand for appointments at our main Lavister branch, we have NOT enabled online booking at this time, and would encourage clients to book their pets' boosters (and other routine appointments) at the branch surgeries to keep appointments free for sick patients and emergencies

Here for domestic and exotic pets

Did you know, we see exotic pets on a first-opinion and referral basis! We also offer a dedicated exotics ward with vivariums, and experienced staff.
