The Wimborne practice has been at the site on Station Road since the 1920s. It was located in Lynwood House, the Victorian townhouse found at the entrance to our driveway, giving the practice its name.
The current building was built in the early 90s, and at the time was a state of the art Veterinary Hospital catering for all species of domestic animals: dogs and cats, horses, cows, sheep and pigs! It was not uncommon for horses to be unloaded for xrays in the car park early in the morning and even the odd farm animal sharing the ward with people's pets!
Times had changed and the building was showing its age. Throughout the last ten years the practice had seen great leaps forward in the care of dogs and cats, and our increase from three to six full time small animal Vets had meant the building was always busy and sometimes nearly full to bursting!
Lynwood wanted to deliver the best quality care possible and so it was time for a major refit, to make the practice fit for the next generation. We engaged the services of Peter Goolden Designs, a specialist Veterinary Architect firm, and Hammond Builders who have built veterinary practices in the past.
