Haven Hedon

The Historic Town of Hedon has been home to the Haven Veterinary Group for over fifty years. We can be found on Ketwell Lane, just by Hedon Primary School and we are fortunate to have ample car parking available.  This part of the practice houses the offices where the Farm Animal and Equine side of the practice is based as well as one of our small animal practices.

At our Hedon small animal surgery we are happy to see all your pets – from dogs to dragons (bearded or otherwise), from cats to chinchillas and the whole range in between, be they feathered, furred or scaly.

You will be greeted by our friendly and experienced Client Care Team, led by Carol Burnham and with many years of experience between the team, they can offer advice, appointments or just be someone sympathetic to talk to.

Hedon Small Animal Client Care Team

We have three modern consulting rooms where you and your pet can be seen by one of our team of vets.

Our veterinary team at Hedon consists of  Jim Morris, the principal of the practice, Mike Geary, Kim Barrow and Elisabeth Pocock.  Our vets are assisted by an able and experience staff of animal nurses.

Over the last few years improvements at Hedon mean that we can now perform many of the services previously only done at Holderness Road.  We now perform most surgical procedures at Hedon and have a modern theatre suite for this purpose. We have x-ray facilities and an in-house laboratory for many diagnostic procedures.  We can also carry out ultrasound scanning and ECG’s if needed. We have a hospital area where your pet is monitored post-operatively or if admitted as a medical emergency.

In common with the rest of the practice, we use Sevoflurane as our gaseous anaesthetic.  This is the safest agent available – we know how precious your pet is to you and how stressful the thought of an anaesthetic can be.

We run on an all-appointment system as we feel that this minimises waiting times for you and your pet. We perform non-emergency surgery in the morning allowing your pet to be recovered enough to go home in the late afternoon.

The whole of our team are here to help, so if you have any questions or concerns about your pet, please ring us.

This includes preventative medicine advice,   vaccinations, surgical intervention, general farm work and health monitoring schemes.  The in-house laboratory at Hedon  also allows the vets to perform various tests, including necropsies, micro-biology and blood biochemistry.

 The farm animal team is also heavily involved with the British Pig Health Scheme (BPHS) which is helping to improve the  health of the national pig herd.
