Small Animal Veterinary Nurse – We offer a caring environment!

Cockburn Vets may be a small, family-run, independent practice, but our hearts are large. We believe that pet care is more than just about caring. Truly caring for pets is more than just making sure they are fit and health. Caring is about being connected and strengthening the bond between the patient, their owner and you…… their veterinary nurse. We believe caring is about being available when they need us – night or day – that is why we continue to provide emergency in-house on call. We believe it’s that bond that led our clients to vote us ‘The Best UK Vet 2021’.
