Sherborne vet on the move after 138 years

A SHERBORNE vet is moving into new premises.

The Kingston Veterinary Group is leaving Long Street, moving the practice to Unit 5 at the Coldharbour Business Park.

Vets at the firm have provided care for livestock, equine and small animal patients for more than a century, based at Kingston House in Sherborne since its opening in 1886.

“Due to the high demand of our services and lack of space and car parking we are excited to announce that we are moving to a new premises, only five minutes away, at Coldharbour,” a spokesperson said.

They said the new site will provide room for growth, improve facilities and working conditions for our staff, “allowing us to exceed our clients’ expectations”.

“The new building will have four consultation rooms, a separate dog and cat waiting area in reception, an imaging suite, dental suite, modern theatre, separate kennels and cat ward, isolation units, purpose-built farm animal theatre, a new laboratory, store and dispensaries, alongside better office facilities for our teams,” they added.

Animals will be welcomed to the new premises in late March/early April, they said.

“We hope that you are all as excited as we are and look forward to you visiting the new premises very soon,” the spokesperson went on.

“Kingston Veterinary Group is investing in the future, making sure the welfare of patients is at the forefront of their plans.”

The company’s small animal practice in Yeovil and the equine practice in Buckhorn Weston will run as normal.
