Shuttleworth Veterinary Group – Welcome to our website

We are independent small animal veterinary practice proud to have been supporting pets and their owners in the Rossendale Valley and surrounding area for over 40 years.

Being an independent practice means that we have the freedom to make sure our clinical protocols and processes offer the best service to our clients and also the wellbeing of our team.

Our mission statement from when Mrs Shuttleworth owned the practice is still what we strive to work towards – “working with you for the health of your pet”

In house services

We have a fully equipped operating theatre, preparation area and radiography zone on the premises. These are maintained to a very high standard.

Behaviour Consultations

Pets can develop a range of behaviour problems, such as aggression, destructiveness, inappropriate toileting, self-mutilation, inappropriate vocal behaviour, nervousness, and phobias.

Nurse Consultations

For a nominal fee our nurses can offer help and advice on pet care. We have a team of qualified and student nurses who can help you to do your best for your pet. Advice can be given on flea and worm control, feeding, microchipping, vaccinations, dental care, neutering, grooming, exercise, pet insurance, training and much, much more.

Puppy and Kitten Pet Care Plans

On top of the normal pet care plan saving we offer further discounts for puppies and kittens By joining a plan with your pet you can save on your pet's preventative healthcare with the added benefit of being able to spread the cost through monthly direct debit payments. As a pet health care client you will also be eligible for further discounts on other products and services within the practice.
