The surgery has been transformed with one aim in mind: to provide your pet with first class veterinary care
Twickenham Veterinary Surgery first opened in September 2002, as a branch surgery of P.G. Andre in Richmond. In December 2003, Christabel Moseley was made the manager and proceeded to run the surgery for the following years, until she bought it from Mr Andre in early 2008. In June 2007 a new premises became available three doors down from the existing practice at 64 Hampton Road.
The new premises afforded much more space and in November 2007, after a lengthy application process, planning permission was granted to convert the new premises into a veterinary surgery. The lease was finally signed in March 2008, when the mammoth project of converting the building into a veterinary surgery began. With the help of a great team, the whole building was transformed into a fresh and modern veterinary surgery, full of fantastic facilities.
The new surgery opened its doors on the 4th August 2008. Since then we have continued to provide the lovely pets of Twickenham and beyond with first class veterinary care.
The surgery is run by Christabel and her husband Kevin Franklin, who is the Accounts Manager. Both Christabel and Kevin believe that all pets should be entitled to a local, friendly veterinary service with outstanding care and customer service.
In September 2008, Wendy Stickells joined the surgery as a veterinary surgeon having worked at the RSPCA in Putney, for the previous ten years. Emma Littler was the next vet to join and in April 2016 Adam Bradley completed the team.
Part time vet, Helena, helps us out on Monday our busiest day and Emma works Thursdays and Fridays, to allow Wendy and Adam to have a day off.
Not only do we care about the health and welfare of our patients, but we care about all the animals in our local community
At Twickenham Veterinary Surgery we are proud to support many local animal charities.
These charities are run entirely by volunteers, the majority of whom also have full time jobs. They do an incredible job of promoting animal welfare and looking after the waifs and strays of Twickenham and beyond. These charities have a ‘no-kill’ policy, which means that they will do everything possible to treat the animals in their care and will never euthanise a healthy animal. They rely entirely on donations from the public to keep running.
The surgery offers its services at a heavily reduced rate to the charities, as well as participating in fund-raising events, helping to foster animals and accepting and passing on unwanted food and pet products from our clients for use by the charities
We have a notice board in reception dedicated to these worthwhile causes, which has a lot of information. When passing by, why not call in and browse? These charities are really worthwhile causes. Please visit their websites or give them a call for more information or to find out how to make a donation.
