We believe in offering the best for your pet. Conventional treatments are extremely effective for most diseases and conditions. However alternative therapies are increasingly being shown to offer extra benefits for pets with certain disorders, just as they can for people. At Broad Lane Vets we recognise the growing importance of complementary therapy, and work closely with local hydrotherapists and physiotherapists.

In addition, we are unique in offering Acupuncture for pets, being the only vets in the area providing such a service.

Richard Webb BVSc Cert AVP MRCVS qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon from Bristol University.

Richard is a member of the Association of British Veterinary Acupuncturists.
