Who We Are

 

Welcome to Barrmore Vets

Barrmore Vets is an established, family-owned veterinary practice in the heart of Llanharan. The practice is owned by Emma and Giles who purchased the practice in May 2014 when the previous owner retired. It is one of the few independently owned vets in the area.

Our practice is open for appointments throughout the day and provides a friendly and caring veterinary healthcare service for all small animals. We operate in a professional and accommodating environment and our dedicated, knowledgeable team are on hand to help in any way possible.
