Welcome to Roden Grove Veterinary centre. We are a friendly family practice in Shropshire, catering for farm animals, and all small animal pets, including Exotics and Birds. Being a small close team, we have a good one to one relationship with our clients and therefore a good continuity of care to the patients.
We are not part of any large Veterinary group and have a 24 hour emergency service, always with someone at the end of the phone 24/7 for any help or advise. Please contact us for any information 01939 232446
