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.


Following the huge success of previous dog shows, at each of which we raised over £800 for local animal charities, we are holding this year's  Fun Dog Show on Sunday 7th August

We held a very successful Blood Donor Session on 12th June.  Our next Blood Donor Session is already arranged for Sunday 18th September 2016.  If you would like to see if your dog is suitable to be a blood donor and potentially help other dogs, click HERE


New legislation states that by APRIL 2016 ALL dogs MUST be microchipped.  Microchipping your pet is ONLY £10.  Please phone to book an appointment.


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.
