We are proud to be an RCVS accredited small animal hospital at our Penkridge practice, holding four awards as part of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme, and provide a fully equipped branch in Rugeley for your convenience. Supported by our experienced, registered, qualified nursing team, E.C. Straiton & Partners offer a 24 hour care service with Out of Hours Emergency Care provided by our own vets at Penkridge – offering you peace of mind when you need it the most. We are available for routine and referral small animal procedures and are comprehensively equipped for equine treatment with hospitalisation facilities.

Established in 1942 by the late Eddie Straiton, the veterinary practice has progressed and built on Eddie’s legacy. The original ‘TV Vet’, Eddie is renowned for his broadcast and writing career; offering advice and educating the public on TV, Radio and via his numerous books. He also acted as an advisor when the novels of his great friend, J.A.Wight – better known as James Herriot – were brought to life in the much-loved series ‘All Creatures Great & Small’.
