First class care for pets and their owners


The Rowe Veterinary Group was founded in 1948 by Mr John Rowe, father of Richard, one of our partners who has recently retired from small animal practice. The practice has grown rapidly and now has four branches. 

Three are in North Bristol with easy access from many areas of Bristol at Yate, Thornbury and Bradley Stoke so within South Gloucestershire.  People living in Rangeworthy, Winterbourne or Frampton Cotterell can quickly reach the Yate surgery or the 24 hour Hospital at Bradley Stoke.

There is also a Veterinary Hospital at Wotton-under-Edge, easy to get to from Hillesley, Hawkesbury Upton, Charfield, Wickwar, Cromhall and Dursley areas.

As well as providing a high quality first opinion practice for dogs, cats, small furries, birds and exotics animals we are home to a referral service, Rowe Referrals.

We are always there to take care of your pet, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Ellie Cliff is a Veterinary Surgeon who has a lot of success in our practice with acupuncture.  Whilst she is on maternity leave Nelson Rowe will treat any cases that we feel can be helped with acupuncture.  Please feel free to discuss this with any of our Veterinary Surgeons, especially if you feel we can help your pet.

Acupuncture has been used for many centuries and is the painless positioning of very fine needles to specific points of the body with good effect.  Most used for it's pain killing effect, with animals there can be no placebo effect.   The needles act on the nerve impulses at the affected site.
 
Acupuncture can be used to alleviate pain caused by:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle spasm
  • Back pain

We regularly give acupuncture to several dogs and horses, both of which tolerate the acupuncture well. It is usually performed in a normal consultation appointment, by a qualified vet, who will place the needles in the animal and leave them in for 5-15 minutes. The acupuncture is normally performed weekly for a period of 3-6 weeks. The most common side effect of acupuncture is sle
epiness.
 
One example of success is a horse which can be worked well, comfortably and with no sign of lameness with regular acupuncture treatment yet is in pain at other times and too stiff to be worked at all.
