Your local Coalville vet in Leicestershire
Cockburn Vets was established by Bob Cockburn in the 1930s. Since then, the practice has been an integral part of the community, caring for animals in the Coalville, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Shepshed, Market Bosworth and Markfield areas. Today Cockburn Vets remains a small family-run business committed to providing the best comprehensive care for your pet. We aim to deliver the highest standard of medicine and treatment techniques backed by exceptional service. Our team has a high level of expertise, and we invest heavily to keep our equipment and our team knowledge base up-to-date.
In 2021 we won the Best UK Vet Awards. This prestigious national award recognises those vet practices delivering the highest levels of service to customers. The awards, organised by VetHelpDirect.com, are based on genuine pet owner reviews of veterinary practices around the United Kingdom. Despite being such a challenging year for vets and pet owners because of the coronavirus pandemic, there were 14,299 vet reviews received, increasing 22% on the previous year – and the highest ever! Thanks to the lovely reviews left by our valued customers, we were delighted to be voted Best Vets in Leicestershire and Best UK Vets 2021.
That’s why at our Coalville vet surgery, you’ll find a traditional and friendly welcome for you and your pets alike – backed by attentive, empathetic care and the latest equipment for swift diagnosis and treatment in even the most complex cases.
We're Cat Friendly
Cat-Friendly Vet in Coalville
Whilst all our furry visitors (and their owners) are important to us we’re especially proud to have been accredited as a Gold Level ISFM Cat Friendly Clinic. This means that we have taken steps to try to make your cat’s visit to our surgery less stressful. If you’d like to find out more about the ISFM award please visit www.catfriendlyclinic.org/. When you bring your cat along to meet us you will be able to wait in our dedicated cat waiting area, where we’re happy for the baskets to be placed on the seat next to you. If your cat would prefer some added privacy please just ask our receptionists to borrow a freshly laundered towels to cover their carrier!
To allow our vets to get to know your pet in a calm environment we allocate a 15 minute appointment time for all our patients. And because we believe it’s important for you to be able to rely on us no matter what time of day or night you need us our in-house 24/7 service is manned at all times by our own vets and nurses who still do ‘on call’
Compassion. Skill. Communication. These are the watchwords for our practice: we know how important your companion animals are to you and that understanding is reflected in the way we work.
