Andrew Mellor Veterinary Surgery in Blackpool, LancashireExcellence, compassion and Involvement
Andrew Mellor Veterinary Surgeons in Thornton-Cleveleys strives to provide the best possible surgical, medical and diagnostic services for your pets.
David Wadsworth founded the practice on 1st Jan 1974 building up the practice and business priding himself on being the most advanced and best practice on the Fylde coast. After 38 years David retired in November 2012 and Andrew and family bought the practice. Andrew joined the surgery in 1997 and became lead vet around 2005.
This really is a family business with good family values. Wanting to expand on the excellent work and reputation David established and created and really drive forward a ‘team working’ approach.
As a team we are raising funds and awareness for Canine partners an amazing charity. The practice has been inspected, is of RCVS approved status and is also a Training Practice for Veterinary Nurses.

Behavioural problems may be discussed and referral to a specialist advised if it is deemed appropriate. Routine check ups will include vaccine advice and a chance to discuss your concerns about your pet.
Consultations are always carried out by qualified Veterinary surgeons to ensure the health and well being of your pet and provide the most up to date and relevant information to you the owner.
Should surgery be required, a veterinary surgeon will speak to you on both admission and discharge of your pet to ensure that you are kept fully in the picture. Our veterinary surgeons are on hand to discuss any concerns you may have and a veterinary nurse will routinely phone in the few days following surgery to ensure that all is going according to plan.
Dedicated nurses look after your pet during their stay with us and should hospitalisation be required for a number of days we encourage visits so that you can keep updated with progress.
Where ongoing treatment is required, the practice will dispense repeat medication provided that the veterinary surgeon is content that this is required. Patients receiving repeat medication will need their case reviewing and re-examining every six months or at an earlier interval if this is deemed necessary.
Both vets take referrals from other practices for surgical procedures. Andrew has vast knowledge and experience with orthopaedic, constructive and complex thoracic procedures. Carlos undertakes
