About Us

Bridge Street Vets was established in 2013 but in a relatively short time has become a very well respected and most recommended practice in the town largely due to our people orientated approach. We occupy a former doctor’s surgery, within which we knocked down a few walls and moved a few doorways and, hey presto, a spacious, sunny environment to work in. (As you'll see from the pictures on our web page we also did quite a lot more.) We are proud to show new clients around and everybody is impressed on the standards of the premises and the cleanliness and space.

Facilities include;

  • Two consulting rooms with height adjustable tables (with a third planned),
  • Two waiting areas,
  • Separate dog and cat inpatient wards,
  • Isolation ward,
  • Imaging room, with digital x ray processor and ultrasound scanner
  • In house IDEXX haematology and biochemistry analysers,
  • Dedicated operating theatre
  • Large preparation area
  • Dental station with nitrogen powered air tools and ultrasonic scaler.

In addition we have our own fully equipped ‘Sunshine Groomers’ salon with two full time groomers employed by the practice. The south facing gardens to the rear provide us with the ideal place for a quiet and relaxing sunny summertime lunch breaks.

As a VN training practice we are proud of our first trainee who qualified in 2017, with a second due to qualify this year and a third looking to start training in Autumn. Together they form the backbone of a well-run and organised practice.

Driffield, a former market town at the foot of the East Yorkshire Wolds, lies between the historic city of York to the west and the picturesque East Coast sandy beaches, firmly in the heart of David Hockney country. It is ideally placed for a broad range of pastimes and outdoor pursuits. There are local schools from infant through to sixth form within the town, and a good stock of new and traditional houses. It has its own sports centre and swimming pool, a variety of pubs and restaurants as well as many local sports clubs and societies. There is a direct railway links to Bridlington, Scarborough, Beverley, Hull, Doncaster and Sheffield with onward connections to wherever you choose to go.

As a Disability Confident Employer we are keen to hear from candidates with disabilities and long term health conditions, and would be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments needed during the recruitment process.
