Carla and Mel


Just to remind you all that at Border Vets we try our best to provide you with a good personal veterinary service.

You will be seen by either Mel or myself and we try our best to be accessible by phone if we are not operating.

Most of our furry friends appreciate a familiar friendly face when they come in.
