Archenfield Veterinary Surgery is located close to the town centre of Ross-on-Wye and provides veterinary care for both small and large animals - from hamsters to cattle. The surgery's dedicated team of three vets, two nurses, a trainee veterinary nurse and receptionists are keen to provide help and assistance to you and your pet.

Staff at the surgery pride themselves on being able to offer their own twenty-four hour emergency service so that you can be certain to see one of the vets immediately.

Surgery times are from 9:00 am to 10:00 am, 2:00 pm to 3:00 PM and 5.30 PM to 6:30 PM on weekdays with a Saturday surgery from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. There is no appointment system so simply turn up with your pet during surgery hours to see a vet or nurse. We close between 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM weekdays. Please feel free to call in at any other time to weigh your pet or just to socialize them! It is important for the animals to feel happy going to the vets so if they can visit and just receive treat or some fuss, they may be less likely to be stressed when they have to visit for any other reason.

The receptionists are happy to answer any queries and also sell flea and worming products, prescription diets, dental supplies and other gifts for your pet. Please be aware that particular products are unable to be sold if there is no vet or suitably qualified person present. To be certain, please telephone first so that the product can be put ready for you.

If you are unable to take your pet to the surgery, the vets are happy to arrange home visits to suit you. Please ring reception and arrange a convenient time.

For large animal clients, Archenfield Vets offer a wide range of services including a collection service for prescription drugs. In 2008, a series of Farmers' Meetings' are being planned to discuss recent changes in the industry and how vets can help farmers to cut disease risks and costs.
