ANIMALS WE TREAT  

We are a 100% small animal practice, so care primarily for dogs, cats and rabbits. In addition we treat ferrets, guinea pigs and small rodents. Our sister practice Wensum Valley Vets treats farm animals and horses.

 

OUR LOCATION  

We are close to Fakenham town centre on Queens road, near the Millennium park. The building is set back from the road, with signs to indicate our position. There is ample car parking alongside and behind the practice building.

 OUR HISTORY  

Jane and David Feneley set up Summerhill Veterinary Centre at its present site in 1993. Since then it has grown from a one-vet to a five-vet practice, with Lucy Rivett becoming a partner in 2008. We are the only privately owned practice in the town, so it is the partners who decide how the practice improves. This means constant reinvesting in state of the art equipment and staff training to provide the best possible service for your pets. 

As we are a single centred practice everything your pet requires is met on the one site, be this a particular diagnostic test or the expertise of one of our vets or nurses.  Despite all our extensive equipment we remain a small friendly practice. We try to ensure you always see the same vet or nurse to give a good continuity of care, yet as a team we regularly discuss cases to ensure your pet is receiving the best possible treatment.  

We provide our own ’out-of-hours’ emergency service, so that in times of crisis you see a familiar face and come to a familiar location.
