Our Facilities

At Blake Vets, we invest heavily in our staff and surgeries to provide facilities which provide your pet with a very high standard of veterinary care.

Our premises at Bridgwater are purpose built, modern and equipiped to a very high standard. We have an ongoing redecorating schedule to maintain the practice hygiene and are installing air conditioning in stages over the next few years for the comfort of our clients, patients and staff.

We do not attempt to replicate all of our services at our smaller surgery in Burnham on Sea but this is still a  modern surgery with two consulting rooms, prep room and separate operating room is the envy of many other practices.   By centralising our more specialised services in Bridgwater, we have been able to invest in high quality equipment whilst avoiding duplication and, in turn, enabling us to keep the charges affordable for all our clients. However, we employ a full-time qualified veterinary nurse to offer all the nursing clinics that we provide in Bridgwater and the surgery is attended by one, if not, two vets each day.

 
Both Bridgwater and Burnham surgeries are equipped with laboratory equipment enabling us to provide you with lab results quickly, in most cases the same day.

In addition, the Bridgwater surgery has separate dog and cat wards to make your pet's stay more comfortable. We have a large grass area at the rear to exercise the dogs on.

Out of Hours Service

Our out of hours service, with 24 hours on site nursing, is located at our Bridgwater site. Being conveniently located just 2 minutes from J24 of the M5, it is central to the practice catchment area with most clients no more than a 20 minute drive away. We have a rota that ensures that there is always a nurse on the premises to provide whatever level of care is required at any time, day or night.

Practice Tours

We are very proud of our surgeries and welcome you to have a look around. Please feel free to call us to arrange a visit. Please note that as we can be very busy at times, we may not be able to give you a guided tour without prior notice.
