CHARNOCK Shepherd veterinary practice is, of course, the longest established vet practice in Kidderminster.

It combines traditional values of the highest level of service, care and compassion with very modern, state-of-the-art equipment and practice protocols.

Head vet Graeme Shepherd commented: “We’ve noticed a sharp increase in new puppies and kittens joining the practice recently, complimenting our long-established relationship with many of our regular clients.

“I think clients are starting to really see the value of our commitment to comprehensive veterinary care ranging, for example, from our 24-hour on- site care (with on-site night vet) to our digital x-ray unit giving instant extremely high quality images aiding rapid diagnosis.

“With us top quality pet care can be really affordable – it’s a great time to consider a new pet.”

He added: “Most of the staff (receptionists, vets, fully qualified registered veterinary nurses) have been with us a really long time and understand client needs.

“Just phone and ask – we are only too happy to help.”

The practice is at Comberton Hill, Kidderminster DY10 1QH and the number to call is 01562 822986.
