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, all easily accessible with free parking. We aim to provide a flexible personal service, we have a pet ambulance for home visits, transport of patients and supplies and being independently run means we are able to accommodate all our clients’ needs. 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, Tetbury and South Cerney, we can care for pets across the South Cotswolds.
Natasha has been with the practice over 5 years and currently works as practice manager/head nurse. She has a foundation degree in veterinary medicine and gained her BSc Hons in Animal Behaviour and Welfare in 2012, gaining her provisional membership of the APBC. She has a keen interest in all aspects of animal behaviour, her main focus being on feline issues.
In 2012 she adopted two extremely opinionated rescue cats, ‘Moka’ and ‘Orio’.
Natasha is now back from maternity leave in May so hopefully we will not be quite so disorganised!
