The Lawrence Veterinary Centre


Based in Eastwood, which is 10 miles from Nottingham City Centre, we have been a veterinary practice for 100 years, with an excellent reputation for client care.

We also have an extensively stocked pet shop for all your pet foods, treats and toys and a fully equipped grooming parlour with experienced qualified groomers on hand to discuss your pet's grooming needs.

Our website aims to provide clients with an insight into the running of the practice. It contains details about our services, introduces the staff, has news & events information and contains lots of useful pet factsheets.


**************WE DID IT******************

FIVE members of our staff, Fran, Rich, Ian, Louise and Paige took on the Coniston Challenge to raise money for Guide Dogs for the Blind on 13th September.  The Challenge  consisted of a 10km hike, a 12km  bike ride and a 2km kayak race in the Coniston area of the Lake District. We have raised almost £4000 for Guide Dogs so far and our 'just giving' page will be open until December.


We held a very successful Blood Donor Session on 4th January.  Our next Blood Donor Session is Sunday  19th April 2015. If you would like to see if your dog is suitable to be a blood donor and potentially help other dogs, click HERE


We are pleased to be welcoming Tom Chalkley to our team of Veterinary Surgeons. Tom graduated from Bristol in 2008 and has been working in Nottingham since then.  He has a particular interest in small animal medicine and in particular cardiology.  Whilst at Bristol Tom spent his elective sessions in small animal surgery. We are enjoying having him on the team.


From 1st April 2014, for one year, we are able to offer Microchipping of dogs FREE of charge in association with The Dogs Trust.  New legislation states that by 2016 ALL dogs MUST be microchipped.  To take advantage of this offer please contact reception to book an appointment, stating that it is for a microchip.  Microchipping of cats and other pets is also available for only £10.


This year we have seen an increase in confirmed cases of Parvovirus. This disease can often be fatal. There is no specific treatment for canine Parvovirus, so it is important to ensure that your dog is fully vaccinated.

Please ask at reception or phone us on 01773 769298 if you are unsure when your dog's booster vaccination is due.

New puppy & kitten packages available

Our First Steps Package offers everything your new arrival needs for their first 4 months for a one-off payment of just £60 for puppies (as from 1st April 2014 we are  able to offer FREE Microchips for Dogs in association with The Dogs Trust) & £80 for kittens. Ask at Reception for details or to register.

Laser therapy at Lawrence Vet Centre

We are now fully equipped to offer K-Laser therapy as a treatment option, which can be beneficial for a number of different conditions, from osteoarthritis and joint pain to burns and chronic wounds.

Save money with our Loyalty Scheme

To enable pet owners to spread the cost of routine treatment, we have designed our own practice membership scheme: The LVC Partnership Loyalty Scheme.
