About Blake Vets
We pride ourselves on our commitment to keeping our clients’ pets healthy. As a team, we endeavour to provide the very best in veterinary expertise.
We operate from sites in Bridgwater and Burnham-on-Sea, covering an area stretching from the Mendips to the Quantocks and from the Bristol Channel out across the Somerset Levels.
Blake Vets can trace its roots back to around 1895 and originally had its premises in Bridgwater town centre before moving to its current purpose-built surgery on Showground Road, just off Taunton Road in 2004.
RCVS accredited practice
We are very proud to be accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme is a voluntary initiative aimed at promoting the best possible standards of veterinary care. We are inspected every four years by an independent veterinary surgeon and we are subject to spot-checks in between. So as a client, this means you can be confident that our practice offers you and your pets the highest quality of care at all times.
RCVS Outstanding Client Service Award
Both our practices have an RCVS Outstanding in Client Service Award, which demonstrates that we go the extra mile to make our clients’ experiences the best they can be. Among the many positive comments the RCVS inspector gave us were – “There was a really nice welcoming feel to the practice,” and “There was a real positive culture of trying to do the best for the clients and their pets.”
Our out-of-hours service is located at our Bridgwater surgery. Being conveniently located just 2 minutes from Junction 24 of the M5, it is central to the practice catchment area with most clients no more than a 20 minute drive away. There is a nurse on the premises 24 hours a day to provide whatever level of care is required. Please telephone us first on 01278 451592 if your pet needs veterinary care out of normal hours.
