Welcome to Hitchin Veterinary Surgery

Hello and welcome to my surgery Hitchin Veterinary Surgery at St Ibbs Farm!


My aim is to provide the best possible care for your pet using the most up-to-date equipment whilst maintaining a personal service in a small, independent practice. We hope the website will give you an insight into the practice and the services we offer with the help of my puppy Piper, we would like to give you a guided tour – Stuart de Wolf.

  • "Since Hitchin Veterinary Surgery opened on 1st February I have had to take four of my five pets to the surgery. I also attended the Open Day. The premises are stunning and I was particularly impressed with the fact that if Stuart is operating he can still observe in-patients because of his totally glass enclosed operating theatre. I have been seen promptly with all my pets’ needs. I know that when I take my pet to the vets it will be seen by Stuart and he knows me and my pet, hence building a relationship for us all. In addition to that his staff also know my pets and provide a warm and friendly welcome and relationship. Hitchin Veterinary Surgery is offering what every pet owner wants, a vet who knows you and your pet and knowledgeable and friendly staff"

I always feel confident he gives me the best treatment possible. I wish Stuart all best wishes and success with his bright new practice, Hitchin Veterinary Surgery. Welcome back Stuart."

  • "We are not the normal client for Hitchin Veterinary Surgery, as we are a rescue, but the level of service and friendliness of staff cannot be faulted. They are always happy to help, nothing is too much trouble and we wish we had met the team a long time ago. It is a pleasure to go in and see the team happy at work and their love for the animals that they care for. We would recommend them to anyone their knowledge is endless, and should they not know they are soon on the case to finding out. Fantastic practice with great generous staff, keep up the great work!"
