We are a small animal practice in Reading, first established as part of the Nine Mile Veterinary Group set up in 1985. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. For your added convenience, there’s free parking for clients at our surgeries.
Hannah has been working at Earls Hall since 2009. She completed her training here and is now one of our head nurses.

Hannah has three animals - two cute male husky rats and a Boxer cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Gunner.
