Almondbury – Somerset Road

Our Somerset Road 24-hour hospital opened in August 2019, replacing our Maple Street Surgery, Aspley which had been the home of Donaldson’s Vets since the early 1960s.

The Somerset Road clinic offers world-class facilities for patient care and has been designed with the comfort of both animal and owner in mind. With extensive car parking and a large comfortable Waiting Room, our friendly team of Vets, Nurses and Receptionists are on hand to help

The 24-hour, 365 days a year clinic is the home to our Emergency Service which is dedicated to providing round-the-clock care for Donaldson’s patients. A dedicated team of Vets and Nurses manage the most critically ill patients from across the Donaldson’s group in our Intensive Care Ward where each animal’s temperature, ventilation, lighting and oxygen concentration can be controlled.

With separate cat and dog waiting areas, we strive to ensure that your pet’s visit is as stress-free as possible.

The separate cat and dog wards are specifically designed to ensure your pet’s stay with us is as comfortable as possible.

With a large prep room and 5 High Sterility Operating theatres with heap-filtered air supply, our facilities are suitable to carry out some of the most complex surgical procedures.

A state of the art Diagnostic Imaging suite contains advanced digital X-ray and ultrasound equipment and a 64 slice human-grade CT scanner. The advanced diagnostic capabilities of the CT scanner are backed up by a visiting MRI scanner enabling complex brain and spinal imaging to be undertaken.

Our on-site dental suite has equipment for descaling, polishing or extracting your pet’s teeth. A specialist dental X-ray machine allows us to accurately assess the roots of the teeth.
