We are open for essential care only

In line with government guidelines, we are only offering medically essential appointments, so please contact the practice team before travelling. Our opening hours may also vary, so please monitor our webpage to keep up to date with the latest information.

We are taking steps to help keep you and our colleagues safe:

  • If you do need to visit, we ask that only one person per pet comes along, to help reduce the number of people in the waiting area at any one time.
  • Social distancing is crucial at this time. When arriving, you may be required to call ahead and wait to be invited in by a member of our team. You will be informed if this is necessary when you call us to make your appointment.
  • Once inside the practice, we ask that you please respect a two metre distance from our colleagues and other clients.
  • We are only accepting card payments to help minimise contact between you and our colleagues.
  • If you can’t visit the practice and are concerned about your pet’s health, please contact us to discuss available options.

We will continue to share regular updates here and on our Facebook page. We thank you for your patience at this time.

Hi I’m Richard, the senior veterinary surgeon and partner here at Banbury. Since opening the surgery in November 2013, I have had the privilege of working alongside a great team of colleagues, at the surgery, in the Pets at Home store and with my support office colleagues in Swindon. I qualified from Bristol University in 1995 and have gained a vast experience with all species of animals from farm and equine to wildlife and zoo animals. In the last 10 years I have concentrated on small animals, domestic and exotic, with an emphasis on preventative healthcare and medical management of conditions. I’m currently (2018) enrolled in training for veterinary acupuncture, a proven method in the relief of chronic pain in animals. Outside of work I’m an active member of a local community choir and enjoy relaxing at home with my 2 rescue cats Earl and Gabriella.
