About Us

Welcome to the Kingston Veterinary Group. There are records of a veterinary practice at Kingston House in 1890. In those days the practice was mainly involved in treating horses and farm livestock, and in fact the buildings that stabled the vet’s horses that were used on their rounds of calls are still in use by the practice today.

The Kingston Veterinary group has a wide client base of small animal, farm and equine clients in both Somerset and Dorset. Over the years, the practice has expanded with a small animal surgery in Yeovil and equine branches located in Longburton and Buckhorn Weston. In October 2018 the practice started its daily running under the management of IVC Evidensia. The Kingston Veterinary Group has always strived for the highest in client and animal care, this move increases the resources available to the practice in order to keep achieving this.
