Meet the Team

Meet our team of vets, nurses and support staff

At Portland House Vets in Retford and Ollerton, we firmly believe in an honest, sympathetic and direct approach with no hidden costs. Because we respect the emotional bond between a pet and its owner, and the commitment of every livestock owner to provide the best, every vet in our practice is committed, not only to the health, but also to the happiness of every animal in its care.

Our aim is to provide you with the best possible health care for all your animals. For pets and companion animals we provide our services in a pleasant, comfortable and friendly environment. For farm animals we provide a prompt and efficient service, wherever we have to go.
