Seadown Vets are celebrating 95 years of caring for the animals of the New Forest.
Seadown is a very special place just like the beautiful New Forest that it serves. Bob Bentley, BVSC MRCVS, partner and vet who has been at Seadown for 34 years explains why:
“We are a close veterinary practice that operates like a family with local advanced practitioners, specialists and staff who are passionate about Seadown and our patients. Everyone here, works really hard to marry traditional values of compassion and care with modern veterinary medicine and customer service, treating every patient as if it were their own. We love what we do and consider ourselves so lucky to live in this area and work with a great team, wonderful clients and a huge breadth of special patients, from family dogs and cats, to exotics and all sorts of wildlife, and from farm livestock and forest donkeys and ponies to competition and pleasure horses. It certainly keeps us out of mischief.”
Not surprisingly Seadown is the veterinary practice of choice for Marchwood, the military dogs and the dockyard security dogs, but also the Pony Breeders and The Commoners. In every respect Seadown is deeply embedded in the forest ways and activities including the famous New Forest
Show, the New Forest pony sales, the welfare tours, Christmas point to point, breeder council meetings and AGM’s. Seadown also has a thriving eye referral service. This means that if your own family vet is presented with a particularly challenging eye case, or one which requires specialist equipment or attention, they may suggest you visit Seadown.
