A veterinary practice situated in Ellesmere, North Shropshire, we provide veterinary services to animals large and small between Shrewsbury and Wrexham. Also Maelor Veterinary Centre brach surgery, located in Overton-On-Dee, Wrexham.
Senior Partner Ryan Hartley established the Loop Veterinary Centre in 1990 on the outskirts of Ellesmere after moving from the practice in Talbot Street. Having grown in size, in 1998 the practice moved back to purpose-built premises in Talbot Street and was renamed Blakemere Veterinary Centre. The practice now employs three full-time and two part-time veterinary surgeons.
In December 2005, the practice opened its first branch surgery in Overton-on-Dee, Wrexham, which was named Maelor Veterinary Centre.
The practice successfully applied for registration on the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme. Tier 2 Status (the highest possible level for General Practice) was achieved in all the areas covered by the practice, i.e. small animal, equine and farm practice
We are committed to providing a high quality veterinary service to our clients. This includes a 24-hour emergency service. We believe in providing continuous care to our patients, therefore all out-of-hours work is done by our own vets.
We are happy to see your dog, cat, rabbit or other small pet at the surgery for routine check-ups and vaccinations, as well as to investigate and treat any illnesses. The surgery is well equipped with two consulting rooms, a large
operating theatre, digital x-ray equipment and in-house laboratory. Further specialist laboratory tests are done by an external lab with most results returned within 24 hours. Two separate kennel rooms allow cats to be housed separately from dogs.
We provide an ambulatory service for our equine clients, our services include vaccinations, worming advice, tooth rasping, lameness work-ups, ultrasound pregnancy diagnosis, pre-purchase examinations, export certification, emergency treatment, microchipping and passport applications. We are lucky to have close links with the University of Liverpool Veterinary Hospital on the Wirral and so are able to arrange referral for horses requiring hospitalisation or surgical facilities. We run regular evening equine client meetings.
Blakemere Veterinary Centre started life as a large animal practice. Although the small animal and equine sectors have grown dramatically in recent years, we maintain a strong interest in the livestock sector, servicing numerous dairy herds, pedigree beef and sheep units, as well as small-holdings. We are committed to providing a high quality veterinary service to our clients both
at herd/flock level down to the individual animalâ€™s needs. Services we provide include herd/flock health planning, fertility visits (ultrasound/manual), disease investigation and treatment, DEFRA work (TB testing, export, etc), advice on vaccination, feeding, worming programmes and emergency treatment .
