A farm vet-focused practice is to open up to meet “growing demand” in Somerset.

FarmVets SouthWest took the decision to open what will be its fourth practice in the Shepton Mallet area.

Six-month build

The practice office will be located near Glastonbury initially and move to be incorporated within the new building in Shepton Mallet when it is ready in about six months’ time.

Vets David Jackson and Candido Rodriguez will be at the helm of the practice.

Meeting demand

Mr Jackson said: “We have practices at Ilminster and North Petherton in Somerset, as well as Honiton in Devon, and the Shepton Mallet practice will help us meet the demands of farmers in the eastern area of Somerset.

“Our vet teams are renowned for working closely with local farmers, providing practical, hands-on solutions to them across the south-west.

“All our vets work closely together to ensure the best service and knowledge is available for our clients to access.”
