We are one of the largest providers of veterinary care locally and our principal site is on Pride Park, Derby, where we provide first opinion treatments plus referral services for our clients and other practices. We have our own dedicated night team. We have 12 local practices who provide quality care, with well-equipped on-site facilities and lots of returning customers who want that friendly team feel.

The Hilton Practice is set in a lovely rustic village location. It is a modern site able to provide a range of surgical procedures in addition to general pet care reviews and informative clinics. It is a modern, well equipped practice with theatre and lab facilities, as well as a bright and spacious consulting room.

We retain a family feel to our sites, and we very much want you to be part of our family.
