About Us

Ashcroft Veterinary Surgery is an independent, friendly, family run practice based in the Cotswolds providing the full range of medical and surgical facilities in a relaxed and caring environment. Our surgeries are fully equipped and all easily accessible with free parking.  We have a pet ambulance for home visits and the safe transportation of patients and supplies. Being independently run means we are able to accommodate all our clients’ needs, and allows us to provide a personal and flexible service.  A dedicated 24hr emergency service ensures that help is only ever a phone call away. Following our recent inspection by the Royal College our accreditation to Small Animal Practice Standards has been renewed. This means you can be sure that your pets are receiving the highest quality care.  With surgeries in Cirencester  and Tetbury we can care for pets across the South Cotswolds.
