A bit about Taverham Vets
Taverham Veterinary Practice was founded in March 1994 by local boy Roger Bannock at our old site on Fakenham Road (where he was born!) with a staff of just 3. Roger was joined by his friend from University and fellow partner Guy Pitcher 18 months later. Rapid expansion led to two extensions being added on to the surgery before it was again too small to fit us all in. In January 2007 the practice moved to our new “state of the art” purpose-built veterinary surgery on Fir Covert Road opposite the Taverham Garden Centre. The practice now boasts facilities that rival any in East Anglia: an attractive, light and airy architect-designed building of over 600 square metres, with extensive car parking and sympathetic landscaping.
The practice is purpose built and winner of the BVHA 2007 “best design” award.The further academic qualifications achieved by our vets are backed up by constant investment in new facilities and equipment at Taverham Vets. Taverham Vets are also proud to be the first veterinary practice in the area to offer laparoscopic procedures for routine operations such as spays.
“A modern and well equipped facility with more post-graduate “RCVS Certificate” vets than any other practice in the region”
At Taverham Vets we have a large team of Staff that are dedicated to the care of Animals. From our highly qualified directors and associate vets through to our reception and nursing staff the Taverham Teams’ individual skills combine to form a cohesive, productive and caring unit. Every one of our team has a vital role to play in the smooth operation of a busy veterinary practice.
Hydrotherapy for Dogs
Our trained hydrotherapists (who are also qualified Veterinary Nurses), work alongside our fully qualified PHYSIOTHERAPIST and OSTEOPATH to provide the very best rehabilitation care possible. Our hydrotherapy treadmill is the only one in the Norwich region.
The Cat Hotel – Luxury Norwich Cattery
Norfolk’s only luxury cattery led by Veterinary Nurses. The Cat Hotel is a fully licensed boarding cattery near Norwich for healthy cats to stay whenever their owners need a hand, and is located at the Taverham Vets Longwater Lane surgery. As the Cat Hotel is run by caring and experienced professionals, we give you peace of mind that your cat will be left in the very best of hands when you go away.
We have been taking our dogs to Taverham Vets since moving to the area 9 years ago. In that time they have compassionately helped us say goodbye to two of our beloved girls, after doing everything they could for them of course. They have also saved two of our pups from (separate) life-threatening illnesses. Of course we are much happier when visits are just for routine boosters and such, but we know that they will go above and beyond when needed. We’ve witnessed first hand, more than once, their dedication, skill, compassion and care – not only for our animals, but for us too. We especially miss Ollie, but we know we can trust Roger, Tom and the whole team to always provide the best care.
I have used Taverham vets for the last 25 years. Always friendly, caring and efficient staff, who have our dogs best interest at heart. Thank you.
Front Desk staff always polite and friendly. Veterinary team the same ; they always explain clearly what problems are if any and give options, extremely caring about the pets they treat and offer empathy and understanding at difficult times. I always recommend Taverham Vets when people inquire.
Taverham Vets is a big practice however, I feel it offers a very warm, friendly & professional service. I never hesitate to recommend you to friends and family.
I have been with Taverham Vets for a lot of years and have always been extremely satisfied by the service and professionalism of the staff and Vets. I have always received excellent support and reassurance when my dog was recovering from a recent operation and whenever I need advice. I would highly recommend them.
Everyone at Taverham vets are amazing. I know my dogs will always be treated with great care and trust their skills 100 percent.
Friendly professional staff, fantastic facility with veterinarians who clearly know what they are doing! Whilst my visit was not due to illness in my pets, I would have absolutely no hesitation trusting them to the care of this professional team in the event that they were unwell. As a vet nurse myself, I am ordinarily a difficult customer to convince! The complexed nature of preparation, admin and blood work that my dogs require to be exported overseas was given excellent thought and the time that is essential to get their overseas travel plans started. I am now relieved and confident that my dogs are in great hands as we undergo the long and tricky process of getting them to New Zealand.
Pets are like family and it’s nice that you all care so much when our pets are sick and in need some tlc.
