For the past 6 months we have been trying to recruit a farm vet to replace one of the vets that left the Practice last year, however despite all our efforts we have not been able to do so. We are now losing two more key members of our farm animal team and therefore we feel that we will no longer be able to offer the full farm animal service that our clients deserve. It is with a heavy heart that, as from 1st May 2018 and after 66 years, the Chine House Partners have had to make the agonising decision to no longer offer a farm animal service.
We want to make sure that our farm clients continue to receive the best service and good value for money, so we have taken time to consider alternatives. After discussions with The Park Veterinary Group (Leicester), we believe that they will be able to offer a prompt, friendly and expert service. They have a team of 6 dedicated farm animal vets. They are based in Leicester but already cover most of the same geographical area as ourselves, we are recommending Peter Orpin, Tracy Bainbridge and the rest of the Park Vets based on the level of experience, expertise and service we expect that they can offer.
Our Equine and Small Animal business is by no way affected by these changes and we continue to provide our usual service for these animals.
Please note we will not be able to provide an ongoing service for camelids and we are recommending Scarsdale Veterinary Group
Finally, at what is a very sad time for us, The Partners at Chine House would like to thank all of our farm clients for their custom over the years and wish them all the very best for the future.
