Mimram Veterinary Centre can be found at 31 Church Street in the heart of picturesque Old Welwyn Village. The building itself is about 150 years old and has a somewhat interesting past during which time it has served as, amongst other things, a police station and a butchers.
Stephanie Writer-Davies, our practice founder, acquired the building (as offices) in December 1998. We have sympathetically refurbished the building in keeping with the ambience of the village.
To this end, we have retained many of the original features, including the cooking range which has been restored.
Look out for it in the consulting room during your next visit.
By April 1999, Mimram Veterinary Centre was open and committed to providing the best possible care for pets and their owners.
At the Practice
You will experience a warm, welcoming atmosphere in a clean and professional environment.
On the premises we have temporary overnight accommodation for staff to use should we be treating any animals requiring intensive care.
Please see our Services and Facilities page and you can see the surgery before you visit.
How the Practice has developed
Since opening, the practice has grown from one vet, one nurse and one receptionist to six vets, five nurses and eight receptionists. Between them, the staff have a wealth of knowledge, not only on the health and welfare of animals but also on general animal matters, training and behavioural problems.
They all regularly attend courses to keep up with the latest techniques and treatments.
All members of staff have their own pets, at the last count these numbered 17 dogs, 13 cats, 12 guinea pigs, 9 chickens, 8 rabbits, 2 horses, 1 tortoise and numerous assorted exotics and fish! Being owners themselves means our staff have first-hand experience of how difficult and upsetting it can be when your pet becomes ill. As such, we treat all animals under our care as if they were our own and have joined forces with the Royal Veterinary College who provide a compassionate out of hours and emergency service. Please visit our Out of Hours page to find out more about how this service is unique to Mimram Veterinary Centre.
