Priory Vets in Cardigan was founded in 1935 and has been at the present premises in Gwalia Gardens, Pwllhai since 1976.

Following the relocation of the Farm Animal and Equine Department to Unit 11, Parc Teifi in August 2011, the small animal surgery underwent a major refurbishment and now offers state of the art hospital facilities.

There is also a branch surgery in Dark Gate Street, Aberaeron.


To ensure continuity of care for all our patients, so they can be seen by vets that know them and who are able to offer the best and most appropriate treatment.


A visit to the vets can be a stressful experience for any pet, so to minimise this discomfort the surgery provides separate waiting zones for cats and dogs.

The hospital boasts two operating theatres, an ergonomically designed double prep room, a bespoke digital x-ray room, an isolation room, a high-capacity cattery and walk-in kennels complete with heated flooring. 

Priory Vets is committed to continued investment in its facilities and equipment, to ensure high standards of care at all times.


Morning, afternoon and evening surgeries are offered during the week at the Cardigan surgery. Please phone for an appointment; these can be made in advance, or on the day for genuine emergencies.

At Cardigan there are facilities to carry out many routine and emergency surgical procedures.

They also offer diagnostic facilities including:

  • Ultrasound scanning
  • Endoscopy
  • Xrays
