*Covid 19 Advice*
The government has requested that people begin to avoid non- essential contact with others and to stop unnecessary travel.
The surgery is open as usual. However, we are doing our best to limit contact.
We politely request that only one person accompanies the animal into the practice and that they telephone us when they arrive at the surgery, before waiting in the car until a member of staff calls them in for their appointment.
In addition, to prevent elderly or at risk clients having to come into the practice we are happy to take any medication outside and/or bring their animal inside for treatment as appropriate.
Please can all clients with both pets and farm animals phone ahead with any requests for medication so we can prepare them and reduce the amount of time spent in the practice. Payments can be taken over the phone to further limit contact.
If you have coronavirus and your pet is sick then please do not come to the surgery but phone for advice.
We are totally committed to providing our best care to your pets. We treat patients as we would want our own pets to be treated, and we have a professional, friendly team of staff.
Sarah Kendall-Taylor BSc Zoo Med MRCVS
I started my career as training as a veterinary nurse at the Royal Veterinary College. After qualifying I continued to work in practice enjoying a fulfilling career caring for various animals.
I accumulated two dogs, Elsa who had a mangled paw from being trapped in an escalator on the tube. I also had Trotsky who survived distemper but was no longer wanted by his family.
I went to night school and studied Pharmacology for 4 years whilst continuing to work as a veterinary nurse. This gave me the qualification to pursue a Zoology degree which led to me studying macaque monkeys in Japan.
On completion of this degree I worked in pharmacology but missed the animals. Then browsing one of the veterinary magazines I saw a vacancy in Llanfyllin which sounded perfect and so I arrived in Wales.
In 2003 I set up Aran Vet Centre with a committed staff all working voluntarily.
I have some lovely regular locums who I would happily have treat my own special pets.
I now have a rescued noisy Bengal cat called, Asha; a Golden Retriever x Border Collie called Jiro. Jiro is my practice manager since he never answers back and he regularly writes in the local paper.
I also have a small Terrier x Cocker Spaniel rescued from a sack that had been thrown in the river.
Last but not least are my twins, my little girl is an avid cat lover and my son a dog lover. Perhaps I shouldn’t forget my long suffering husband.
Wonderful, friendly practice, with an excellent vet who puts you at ease.
