Welcome Silva House Vets

As you may already be aware, at the end of 2014 Silva House Veterinary Group became part of the Highcroft family due to the retirement of the practice owner, Chris Cawood.

Silva House Vets is a long established three practice veterinary group, with branches in Midsomer Norton, Frome and Haycombe. The practice has a fantastic history so it is a great honour to now have them as part of the Highcroft group.

“Silva House has been part of the community for nearly 80 years, and having grown up on a farm in Ston Easton, I knew the Silva House team very well” says Richard Killen, Chief Executive Officer and owner of Highcroft Veterinary Group. “I even did some of my own veterinary training as a student there. Chris took me under his wing and really looked after me. We’ve stayed in touch ever since.”

For existing Silva House clients it will be business as usual, as they will continue to see the same vets, nurses and other familiar faces.  They will also now have access to the additional services that Highcroft Veterinary Group have to offer including our 24 hour hospital and specialist referral centre in Whitchurch.

“When Chris mentioned he was thinking of retiring, we could think of nothing better than joining our practices. We wanted to make sure that the Silva House name carried on successfully, whilst still maintaining the practice's values, its loyal and wonderful staff, and continuing to be independently-owned by vets, unlike so many other practices nowadays.”

Each of the Silva House branches is undergoing refurbishment, with Silva House Veterinary Centre in Midsomer Norton having just been completed. Have you had a chance to have a look around yet? If not pop in to say hello, we’d love to see you!
