Valentine Vets Are RCVS Accredited

Why Choose Our Veterinary Practice 

Our veterinary practice was opened in 1987 by Gerald Valentine (having moved from his previous surgery in Heywood to the more spacious facilities here in Castleton). He was joined in 1993 by Simon Cogan and, 10 years later by Adam Deavin) Together the partnership offers you over 60 years of veterinary experience with the emphasis on good communication and a caring attitude.

The practice deals with all aspects of  small animal veterinary medicine and surgery at a well equipped, convenient site.
