Shannon Lodge Veterinary Surgery is a single site small animal veterinary practice based in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.
We treat companion animals and provide preventative health care and a wide range of medical and surgical investigations and treatments.
At Shannon Lodge we aim to provide a professional, friendly and caring veterinary service. Our dedicated veterinary team strive to promote and maintain the highest standard of veterinary care for our clients and their pets.
The practice was founded in 1999 by the current principal veterinary surgeon, Francis Flynn MVB MRCVS. Shannon Lodge was initially established in a small premises nearby in Outram Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, but within a couple of years the practice’s success required that a larger premises was needed.
The practice moved to Kirkby Folly Road in Sutton-in-Ashfield in 2002. These premises required extensive internal renovation from a car-spraying retail outlet to the modern, spacious well equipped veterinary practice found today. Further extensions were completed in 2008 due to continual growth of the practice. The building now provides:
- Large reception area
- Four consulting rooms
- Modern and well equipped theatre
- Separate X-ray and ultrasound room
- Large prep area for undertaking clinical procedures
- In-house laboratory
- Kennels and separate isolation unit
The practice team has grown from a sole veterinary practitioner to a well-qualified and experienced veterinary team consisting of veterinary surgeons, qualified veterinary nurses, nursing assistants, receptionists and a practice manager.
The practice has achieved Small Animal General Practice status in the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme in recognition of the standard of veterinary care and facilities provided at Shannon Lodge.
