Welcome to Crouch Vale Veterinary Practice.

Ais Sumner of Crouch Vale Vets

We are an independently run veterinary practice; owned and managed by a local vet and her family who have lived in the South Woodham Ferrers area for nearly twenty years.

Aisling is a Local Veterinary Inspector and is able to carry out the requirements for the Pet Passport Scheme and other small animal exports. We have digital x-rays, a state of the art laboratory and theatre.

We now have a second vet on board, but to make sure we can still accommodate everyone we will be booking certain appointments in with the nurses.

These consults will include 2nd vaccines, flea and worm checks, nail clips, allergy vaccines, post op checks, weight checks, admits, re-see appointments that don’t require a vet, and small routine consults.

Also, please chat to the nurses on the phone about queries and problems; Ais often ends up with huge lists of people to phone back at the end of every day and sometimes they are things easily solved by the nurses

Veterinary nurses are qualified to do more than people may realise, they often get mistaken for receptionists or just people who sit and answer the phones. They work hard for their qualifications. Here’s a little list of some of the tasks nurses are more than capable of doing here at Crouch Vale:

Blood tests
Putting patients on fluids
Lab testing
Monitoring anaesthesia and assisting with surgery
Giving medications and injections
Nurse consults
Nail clipping
Dental procedures
Caring for in-patients
Triaging emergencies
Advice and support over the phone
Recovering patients from anaesthesia and monitoring them post op
