Long established in the local area, Donnington Grove Veterinary Group (as we have come to be called) is thought to have originated in the early 1900s. Initially a mixed practice dealing primarily with farm animals and horses and with all vets working with all species, the practice has evolved, particularly over the last 30 years, to become one of the largest independent veterinary practices in the country.

Nowadays our veterinary surgeons are dedicated to either pets - Donnington Grove Small Animal Vets - or horses - Donnington Grove Equine Vets. Within that species specialization each division of the practice has vets with their own expertise and specialization in various fields.

Over time, we have expanded from our Newbury site to provide the same high level services and facilities at our Thatcham and Tadley clinics. 


As a fundamental part of our mission, we continuously work to provide the best facilities for our patients and clients. Work was recently completed on a brand new fourth consulting room at our central clinic in Donnington, Newbury. This allows a dedicated consulting room for cats and their owners. 

Future plans involve our Equine division which will vacate our Newbury facility, enabling the Small Animal division to further expand and develop.


Donnington Grove Small Animal Vets is a team of 12 vets supported by over 30 nurses and support staff who work together creating a passionate and caring environment for your pet. Our team will always go the extra mile, and always have your animal's best interests at heart.


If you enjoy working in a busy, compassionate and team spirited environment then Donnington Grove may be just the place for you!

A career in the veterinary profession might be for you if you like the idea of working with animals and being part of a dynamic team. Becoming a registered veterinary nurse can lead to a rewarding career. As an approved veterinary nurse training establishment we can help you achieve this goal.
