Over 65 years of caring for your animals

Axe Valley Veterinary Practice was founded in the Wedmore area in the 1950's moving to its present location in Blackford within the 1970's. We pride ourselves on our dedication to serving the local community in a friendly, personal and flexible way. Over the years we have expanded to cover a wide area of Somerset from Blagdon to Bridgwater with branch surgeries at Cheddar, Wells and Woolavington.

High quality services and facilities

Our Veterinary Practice provides a guaranteed high level of service with surgical and imaging facilities, complementary medicine and a full out-of-hours service covered by our own veterinary surgeons. All domestic species are treated - dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and more exotic species. 


Friendly, experienced staff

A quality service needs quality staff, to this end we place great emphasis on training and education, with all staff attending regular courses, tutorials, and conferences.

We also feel it is important to invest in the future. We encourage all our staff to attend various courses to continue their professional development. Our nursing staff are encouraged to study the Level 3 Diploma Veterinary Nurse Training, or Veterinary Care Assistants qualifications. In addition to this we are a foster practice for the University of Bristol Veterinary School, passing on our vast experience to the next generation of veterinary surgeons.

“We offer a friendly and personal service to our customers that some other veterinary practices lack. But with all of the professionalism they offer”
