Providing veterinary services to the Coalville, Ashby, Shepshed, Ibstock, Market Bosworth and Markfield areas, our in-house 24/7 service is manned by our own vets and nurses who still do ‘on call’. This means that, if your pet needs help from a vet outside our normal opening hours you will be able to see one of our vets at our surgery on London Road, Coalville. This is different to many practices which out-source their emergency calls to other practices, meaning that their clients have to travel to their designated out-of-hours provider.
We passionately believe in keeping our knowledge current so that we can give you the most up-to-date advice and your pet the best treatment. Recently Diane completed her post-graduate Diploma in Veterinary Professional Studies equivalent to 1200 hours of study completed over a 4 year period, while Maxine holds a Veterinary Nursing Certificate in Anaesthesia and Kostas and Laura are currently studying for a Certificate in Advance Veterinary Practice in Orthopaedics and a Veterinary Nursing Certificate in Emergency Care respectively.

We realise that taking care of your pet can be expensive. That’s why we’re launching our pet health plan Cockburn Pet Group on 01st January 2019, where not only can you take advantage of reduced prices for preventative treatments to protect your pet, but will also benefit from unlimited consultations at no extra charge so that you can access veterinary expertise whenever you need it. Simply pay for any tests, medication or operations required. FIND OUT MORE
We are an independent veterinary practice and a long-standing, family business with extensive local knowledge and connections. Moreover our caring and compassionate team are regularly nominated for the prestigious Pet Plan Awards.
15 minute appointment slots – While many practices have 10 minute appointment slots we feel it is important not to be rushed in caring for your pet so we have 15 minute appointment slots so that we can take the time to understand your concerns.
This voluntary scheme, which is participated in by approximately 50% of UK practices, ensures that high standards of care are in place. We are proud to have passed our most recent Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons inspection with the inspector commenting in particular on “the bright welcoming waiting room” and the robust systems in place for looking after our patients.
Gold Cat Friendly Clinic
We know that visiting the surgery can be particularly stressful for cats. As a gold friendly cat clinic we have put special measure in place to help with this such as our cat only waiting area.
Accessibility at our Coalville Vets
Our practice is located in a central location and has a large car park at the rear. We understand that some dogs get anxious in the waiting room and are happy to come and fetch you from the car park if this helps.
Specialist Techniques & Equipment
We invest heavily in equipment and expertise so that we can provide modern surgery such as laparoscopic (keyhole) neutering; complex orthopaedic surgery; digital dental and other radiography; and ultrasonography.
With our website you can ask advice via live chat, manage your profile, book appointments and order repeat prescriptions on-line. We can also send you reminder texts to allow you to time your flea and worming treatments and to remind you about vaccine boosters and appointments.
