Haven HedonHaven Veterinary Group

Here at Haven Veterinary Group, we have been able to trace our origins back to 1907. We are extremely proud of our heritage and place within the South Holderness and East hull communities.

It was Mr Dugdill who began practicing in this area from his base in Patrington and continued for many years. Indeed, some of our more mature clients can remember him travelling around in his pony and trap.

After the last war, the practice relocated to Hedon and then a branch was opened in Holderness Road, Hull. We were at the forefront of disease control in farm animals especially pigs with John Oldham and Bernard Swift was continually improving the care of our pet patients.

The practice has grown and evolved  from those days due to the rapid development of medicines, equipment and treatment procedures and we have seen many changes within our dedicated team and the premises from which we operate from,  to where we are today.

In April 2013, Jim Morris became sole owner and already as principal Vet is continuing to uphold the values and professionalism of our predecessors. Jim is fully committed to improving and developing our service to you.

We are looking forward to celebrating Jim being in practice at Haven for 25 years in 2016 and 110 years of Haven Veterinary Group in 2017.

We could not have achieved this without our loyal clients and we thank you for this. We also pledge to treat you and your animals with patience, kindness, dignity and understanding for many years to come – who knows, maybe another 100.  “Because we care too”


Our Practices

Haven Veterinary Group has a long history of specialising in pigs and this is still the main component of the farm animal work at our Hedon practice at 34 Ketwell Lane Hedon. The large animal section also treats horses, other farm animals and pet pigs. Hedon also sees small animals including exotics.

Our Hull practice at 684 Holderness Road undertakes all types of small animal veterinary work.

Haven Veterinary Group currently employs 32 people including 7 vets whose combined experience in small animals, large animals and exotics exceeds 100 years.
