Small Animal & Equine Veterinary Practice

We pride ourselves in providing first class veterinary care in a relaxed and friendly environment

About Us

The Barn Veterinary Practice was established by Robert and Lorna Hill in 1986, since then, we have taken great pride in providing first class veterinary care to our clients in a relaxed and friendly environment.

The Copdock surgery was designed and purpose-built within a converted Suffolk barn, to offer a very highly equipped, modern facility benefiting from a tranquil location only a few minutes from the centre of Ipswich.

As the practice grew, we expanded with the acquisition of the Ashcroft Road Surgery in 1989. From a team of two back in 1986 we have now grown to a team of over 25. To find out more about our staff, go to ’our staff’ pages.

Our policy is of continuous investment in modern equipment and ongoing training to keep abreast of changes in the rapidly advancing field of veterinary medicine.

Approved under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons ’Practice Standards Scheme’ as a small animal practice, equine practice and veterinary nurse training centre, our clients can have confidence they will receive high quality veterinary care.
