Our Practice

S.P.A. Vets was established in 1969 by Bill Stewart and has grown into a 5 vet, companion animal practice.  We have two premises; our main surgery on Painswick Road, and our branch surgery in Quedgeley. We are a friendly, caring practice and we offer a first-class service to our clients and their pets.

We have 5 full-time vets- the three Directors, Cliff Alderman,  Clare Morrison and Becky O'Dowd. Our associate, Steve Parker has been with us since 1997 and our other associate, Klara Taylor, joined in 2010. We are fortunate to have the help of part-time vets Bill Pigott, Tania Ball and Liz Tillott. If you have a preference as to which vet you would like to see, we will try our best to arrange this for you. If there is a problem that is beyond our expertise then we will be happy to refer your pet to a specialist veterinary surgeon.

We have a team of 12 able and dedicated nurses, all of whom look after for your pets whilst they with us; caring for hospitalised patients, monitoring anaesthetics and generally keeping the place clean and tidy. We also have one receptionist working alongside our nurses, meaning any calls can be dealt with by trained and experienced staff. In order to offer the best care, our practice is a Training Practice for veterinary nurses. We are able to train and obtain the best from our nurses. Nurse consults are available on subjects such as, weight checks, dental checks, flea and worm advice, problem behaviour and much more. If you are interested in any of the above please phone and speak to a nurse.
