Weedon Vets

Weedon VetsWelcome to Weedon Vets!

Due to increasing demand Towcester Veterinary Centre Group opened a new small animal clinic in Weedon in the Spring of 2014. Towcester Veterinary Centre has been providing veterinary services to all creatures great and small in the area for over 100 years.

About us
We pride ourselves on being an extremely friendly and approachable team at Weedon. We believe that every animal deserves the highest standard of veterinary care and that every client should receive exceptional customer service.

Facilities
Our purpose built Weedon practice is equipped with a state-of-the-art operating theatre, digital x-ray, dental facilities and lab. If you would like a tour of Weedon Vets then just call our reception team and they will arrange this for you.

Providing our own emergency service
We are one of the few practices in the area still providing our own out-of-hours emergency service. This is run from the Towcester Veterinary Centre hospital by our own vets and nurses (so if you are seen in an emergency you may well have the reassurance of seeing a familiar face).

All the latest news
We aim to keep you updated on topical issues through regular posts on our Blog, Facebook page and Twitter. We also hold occasional informal client talks at venues in the area.

We look forward to welcoming you and your pets to our community!

            Whilst growing up, Becci had many different pets including an iguana, a ferret, 2 German shepherds and a working Labrador. She also attended a lot of shooting days and really enjoyed taking part in clay pigeon shooting regularly.In her spare time she enjoys being outdoors and walking, and has walked to the top of Snowdon (but sadly took the train back to the bottom). One of her fondest memories is being fortunate enough to have canoed along the river in the Florida quays.

Growing up she was surrounded by pets which included dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, budgerigars, fish and tortoises.Earlier in the year she decided to use her previous medical experience and combine it with her love of animals to work in a Veterinary practice. Meeting pets and their owners, she has quickly realised that this is her perfect job and thoroughly enjoys her role within the practice team.Alison currently has one re-homed cat called Sammy, however I don’t think it will be too long before she is joined by a little brother or sister!
