At Castle Veterinary Practice our goal is to build lasting relationships with our patients so that we can come to know their individual needs, and they can come to know us, and trust us in our care and handling. We build these relationships by offering: 24/7 service, in a new purpose built, well equipped facility, with well trained and dedicated staff.
We are proud to be a small practice offering continuity of care to you and you’re much loved companion. You will see the same vet, and if needed and appropriate have an informed and affordable treatment. There will not be any surprises, we provide estimates for treatment, before we go ahead and treat your pet.
Based in Bridgwater for over 12 years, we have evolved from a small and large animal practice based in Castle Street, Bridgwater to a purpose built facility we work from today. Our practice was planned with your pets comfort in mind. We are happy to show you around, so you too can feel comfortable leaving your pet in our care.
The practice is run by husband and wife team, Jaan and Kate Bartels. Jaan is the principal vet at the practice, and clinical director. He has a keen interest in all things bony (orthopaedic surgery), and avian/ exotic pets.
Kate is the managing director, and has been veterinary nursing for over 27 years. Kate also joins a team of clinical coaches at the practice, in training and mentoring student nurses for the veterinary nursing qualification.
