Established over 20 years ago, The Village Veterinary Group’s main aim is to ensure our clients and their pets receive the highest level of care. Our veterinary team is headed by our clinical director, Priya Puranik, and we are dedicated to continued professional development and further study, allowing us to deliver up-to-date and professional service. All of our vets have areas of special clinical interests including ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery, emergency medicine and cardiology. Our enthusiastic nursing team is constantly striving to improve patient care and between them hold higher qualifications in anaesthesia, nutrition and critical care. For more information please visit the meet the team section.
The main hospital is based in Caterham and is well equipped with two surgical theatres, a dedicated imaging suite with digital radiography (X-ray), high quality ultrasound and endoscopes, dedicated dental suite and modern on-site laboratory. Over night hospitalisation is possible without the need to transfer your pet to another practice. Hospitalised patients are looked after in our on-site separate dog and cat wards where there are large and comfortable walk in kennels for our larger dogs and calm and peaceful kennels for our feline patients.
Alongside the hospital we have three fully functional branches at Smallfield, Merstham and Tanhouse staffed by dedicated vets and qualified veterinary nurses. We are proud to be able to offer consultations, investigations (laboratory, X-ray and ultrasound), routine surgeries and dentistry at the branches. Patients requiring hospitalisation or more advanced investigation or treatment are transferred to the main hospital in Caterham.
The practice was acquired by CVS (UK) Limited in 2008 and operates as part of this larger group of veterinary practices and veterinary service providers. This allows us to share skills and expertise with other nearby practices, helping us give your pet the high level of care our clients have come to expect. Our Healthy Pet Club loyalty scheme allows clients to access all this at discounted rates as well as receiving free-routine health care.
