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.

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon
BVetMed MBiochem CertAVP(SAM) MRCVS
Jonathan graduated from the University of Oxford and the Royal Veterinary College, London and has always worked in small animal practice, most recently in small animal hospitals in South Wales and Cambridge. He gained the RCVS certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2015 and since 2016 is an RCVS recognised Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Medicine. He is currently completing the RCVS certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia. Jonathan wants to offer the best quality care and latest techniques in medicine and surgery to all his patients and their owners. His main interests are cardiology and oncology but he enjoys to work up any complex medical case. Outside of work, Jonathan has a busy family life with two young children and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. He enjoys baking, running and cycling when time permits! He is very excited to be able to offer a first class veterinary service to Haverhill's pets and their owners.
Gloria graduated in Italy in 1996 where she worked in a small animal practice while starting her PhD in Infectious Diseases, which she completed in the year 2. She has been working with companion animals in the UK for the last 16 years, the last 9 of which as Head Veterinary Surgeon for a big hospital with a busy out of hours service. Gloria’s main fields of interest are internal medicine and dermatology and she thrives in creating that rapport of mutual trust with the client and their pets which she believes is the very essence of the high standard of care she strives to provide. In her spare time - whatever that means! - she enjoys running, dancing, cooking and spending time with her daughter and her cats. Over the last 3 years she has also gained qualification as a hypnotherapist and a counsellor (for human beings, not pets!)
After successfully caring for thousands of pets at Vets4Pets Haverhill, Veterinary Surgeons Gloria De Palma and Jonathan Grey are delighted to be bringing their expertise to Saffron Walden!
They’ll be offering the best quality care in a brand new, purpose built surgery to look after your pet's every need including a lab, pharmacy, x-ray and ultrasound machine.
