Welcome To Our Practice

Welcome to Arvonia Vets, Your Friendly Independant Vets in Cheltenham and Churchdown. Here at Arvonia we pride ourselves in being the friendliest vets in Cheltenham and Churchdown. We are also independently owned and run so we control our own practices to provide the best possible care for your pets. Our staff are pet owners too so we understand how important pets are to our lives and wellbeing, that's why we treat your pets as if they were our own. We have plenty of free parking at both of our practices so please be assured of easy access to us.

Our team of vets includes Richard Hillam, a highly qualified and accomplished surgeon, he specialises in the more complex procedures needed to keep your pet in tip top health, from life saving emergencies to the latest knee reconstructions to keep your dog running around the park at full speed! The whole team is very proud of our practice and we are constantly striving to develop and improve it raising standards of client and patient care. We encourage our medical staff to continue their education in specialist fields in order to expand their knowledge and keep it up to date. Our aim is to discuss all aspects of your pet’s health with you, offering you all the options that are available in treatment and prevention. We understand and respect the fact that not all clients have the ability to fund the most advanced treatments.

We look forward to welcoming you, did you know you can now book appointments online here.

Pandemic Update July 2021

We are very excited to be able to accomodate you back into our practice building. It's been a hard year trying to provide our services to you efficiently outside in our carpark so we are especially pleased to be able to have you back into the waiting room and consultation rooms to provide a more private and personal service. It will be much drier too!
