A very warm welcome is extended to everybody from Elizabeth Smith Veterinary Practice. We are an independently owned small animal and equine practice located on the road between the villages of Ickwell and Upper Caldecote, near Biggleswade.
The practice was established in 1982 by Mrs Helen Papworth, but a constant expansion meant that we moved from the original premises in Ickwell Green to Shuttleworth College in April 1998.
Elizabeth Smith joined the practice in 1994 and bought it from Helen in May 2002. Her goal was to design and build a permanaent, purpose built practice and we finally moved into our current premises on 3rd March 2011.
Our vision is to provide the best, first opinion small animal and equine veterinary care for your pets. We strive to give excellent customer care by providing a sympathetic, flexible and efficient service as we offer the personal touch and do our best to encourage case continuity. As most of us are pet owners ourselves we understand the hugely important role our pets have as a member of our families.
We are also very proud to be one of the only practices in the local area to offer our own out of hours service. If you need emergency treatment outside of our normal hours then one of the practice's veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses will be available to help your pet so you will be assured you will see one of our regular staff at our own building on Ickwell Road. Please call our landline number and follow the instructions.
