Our story

The little clinic with a big heart

For all of us at The Strand Veterinarian, our ambition is to create a care environment acceptable to the most discerning of clientele, our own precious four-legged familiars. A place to be nurtured and healed – a place where intuitively they feel the heart behind our service, trusting us to look after their best interests when it comes to their health.

When we talk about ‘heart’, for us that means a high standard of customer care, a commitment to increasing the skills and knowledge of our extraordinary team, and the creation of a space where love, respect and understanding of our client’s special relationship with their animal companion takes place.

"Animals are magic in our lives...
...they are tangible manifestations of love – they are the bringers of joy and happiness. What could be more important than that?”
