Personal pet care

The importance of personal connections with vet Brad Cooper.


The veterinary profession has seen huge change since my family took over the original Folly Gardens’ clinic in Tewkesbury in 2006. Back then, most practices were small and traditional, owned and managed by a single vet who lived locally. Today, many clinics operate under the umbrella of a large group.


Our lovely team of vets, qualified veterinary nurses, animal nursing assistants and receptionists have been hand-picked. We are an independent family-owned practice and because of this our vets have clinical freedom when putting together treatment plans or choosing medication.


Our approach is a personal one. We encourage our clients at be involved in the decision making about their pets at every stage to ensure they receive a tailor-made service. It’s important to us that clients form a trusted relationship with their vet - we see every day how that connection can positively impact the health of the animals we care for.


We are proud of our loyal and friendly staff. Since 2006, their incredible support has enabled us to grow into a team of 37, with four clinics across Gloucestershire and a mobile consulting service. As a stable team, we offer continuity of care; pets and owners can see the same vet each time they visit. Clients coming to our clinics will see familiar faces and build up a rapport with the whole team.


The services we offer are practical and affordable. Joining our Folly Care Club gives you a simple, money-saving way to provide your pet with the best preventative care. It’s not pet insurance but a health plan covering regular items such as vaccinations, flea, worm and parasite treatments, health checks and discounts. Our plan is designed to adapt to your pet’s needs from birth through to their senior years. Please find full details on our website.


For help and advice on any pet issue please call our friendly team.
