Practice Ownership at Vets for Pets Chippenham

About the practice

Chippenham Vets for Pets opened in 2013 and is based inside a large and successful Pets At Home store. The store is situated on Chippenham Retail Park, with neighbouring businesses on the retail park including B&M and Wickes. The location of the practice is ideal, being close to a residential area, as well as the junction of the A350 and A420, making commuting easy. 

The practice is in good condition, having recently undergone refurbishment, and includes a spacious prep area, theatre and 3 consult rooms, and a dental X-ray machine. The practice has Practice Standards, RWAF Silver, and Compassion Understood Platinum accreditation. 

Chippenham Vets for Pets has established itself as a well-respected practice since it opened its doors in 2013, and is currently performing well. It has a dedicated long-standing team and a strong client base, 65% of whom are on a care plan. 

Although the practice has a strong average transaction value and a high number of new client registrations per week, these numbers have the potential to be even higher. With a new practice owner(s), there is real opportunity to quickly grow and realise the practice's full potential. Some additional growth opportunities include:

- Increasing targeted client marketing 

- Expanding the clinical team, which currently comprises:

  • 2 Vets 
  • 1 Head Nurse, 2 RVNs, 1 SVN, 2 VCAs
  • 4 CCAs
  • 1 Practice Manager

What our clients are saying

Client satisfaction results are good for Vets for Pets Chippenham, with a feedback rating of 4.4 on Google!

"I rang for an emergency appointment and was given one for an hour later - which was great. Staff from reception to consultation room were friendly and knowledgeable. Vet was reassuring and thorough and put my mind at rest giving my much loved moggy a thorough examination and explaining the treatment needed. Happy to say he's well on the way to recovery now thanks to the excellent work of your lovely vet."

"First visit with new kittens. Reception staff were polite and friendly. Vet came out asked about kittens and took them for treatment. Reception staff helped setup plans and insurance which came through before we left. Have already recommended to friend who has just got a puppy!"

"The staff and vets are the best I've ever used and I wouldn't go anywhere else. They care about you and the animals they treat. They understand how stressful bit can be for my dogs and myself. They always show kindness and compassion"

"Everyone was really friendly, and genuinely interested in my dogs health and well being not like some previous vets we’ve visited which have felt like they just want to make the next £1. It was easy to sign up and make an appointment."

About Chippenham

Chippenham is a market town located at the southern tip of the Cotswolds, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and only 14 miles east of the historic city of Bath, which is a World Heritage Site.

The town was established on a crossing of the River Avon and has a long and rich history. A settlement is believed to have existed here since before Roman times, and it was also a royal hunting lodge of Alfred the Great.

Being on the M4 corridor (junction 17) and the Great Western Main Line, the town is perfectly positioned for easy commuting to the South East and Wales. You can get the train directly to London Paddington in just over an hour, Bath in 10 minutes, and Bristol in 25 minutes. 

Chippenham's population is constantly growing, thanks to its proximity to London and new housing projects. There is therefore an opportunity for significant growth in client numbers for the practice. Outside of the town centre, Chippenham is surrounded by sparsely populated countryside and woodland, such as Bird's Marsh, which is a popular place for walkers.
