47 Station Road,
Please park clear of neighbours driveways!
Note: If you are coming from Bristol you are best to come over by Hinton Charterhouse and then on to the A36. Look for the Dilton Marsh turn off on the left shortly after you see the sign for Standerwick and after the going under the railway bridge. It is the B3099, and unfortunately the sign which was on the junction has been knocked down by a car so at the moment the actual turn-off is poorly signed. Follow the road all the way through Dilton Marsh, then you will come to a series of 3 roundabouts, turn left at each one, even the one that says Westbury to the right. You will then come to a couple of painted mini roundabouts (go straight across) and then a proper one at a crossroads, Turn right as this is Station Road (the sign says Rosefield Way but don't worry about that). We are about 100 yards further up on the right hand side.
If coming from the Filton side of Bristol, it is best to go on the M4 and take the turn off for Chippenham. Then follow the A350 until you come into Westbury itself. Keep to the A350, especially at the roundabout at The Hungry Horse where you should turn left and continue following the signs for the A350. After about 5 minutes you will come right into Westbury and will approach a roundabout opposite a church, turn right and go past the Police Station (on the left, you are at this stage following the signs for the West Wilts Trading Estate and the Railway Station). Go straight across the double mini roundabout, and we are about 100 yards further down on the left hand side.

Important: If you would like to send a photo by email you will need to contact me first so I can supply you with the full email address. It is "hidden" to stop spam. Also, occasionally the email system fails to work properly, so if you don't get a response within 24 hours, use the telephone number instead as it is possible I have not received your email.
The answerphone will take messages 24 hours a day, and is downloaded regularly, but please don't leave a message unless you are prepared to wait for my response (usually within 24 hours).
Rabbits for Re-homing - if you have an appointment to bring in an unwanted rabbit, please be aware that our vets thoroughly examine all the rabbits that come in to us, and a small number are sadly found to have significant dental disease. In such cases the vets usually make the decision to have the animal put to sleep. Otherwise, all the rabbits that are brought to us are neutered, vaccinated, matched into pairs (if not already matched), and are found suitable new homes. Single male guinea pigs are neutered and matched with females, and all other guinea pigs are rehomed in pairs or as match-ups for lonely other guinea pigs.
