In order to catch up, we will be holding vaccination only clinics on Saturday and Sunday throughout April. Please book online

However, for the time being. it will not be a return to pre-Covid ‘business as usual’. 

We usually have a total of 21 full and part time staff working . From March 29th we will be working with 6 staff at any one time within the building – so be patient and bear with us whilst we phase back our normal veterinary services over the next few months

What our customers say about us

“I have been seeing Mr Leedham since I was a pup. I have spent quite a lot of time in the consulting room over recent years due to multiple health problems! However, I have such respect for Mr Leedham as I know he always does best by me! I consider all the ladies on reception and nurses as my friends, I love to see their smiling faces and have a quick cuddle! Mr Leedham has always made me better, I have caused him a lot of hurdles to overcome along with a lot of surprises as I never do anything classed as the ‘norm’ ! All the staff have such patience with us as my owner worries very much, They always show her kindness, understanding along with time and empathy! (she even wants us to move in there!) I must admit I am not that keen on that idea. I prefer to just visit them all (you can have too much of a good thing! ). Anyway, the best part of all is a smile and a treat! I know I am in good hands and that what ever decision will be made with regards to my failing health will be in the best interest for me! You are the BEST! Thank you all for being so lovely!” Sarah (on behalf of Macy)

“We moved to Truro 3 years ago and immediately registered our 3 cats at City road vets. It proved to be a great move when recently, Frankie one of our Maine coons, suffered a burst stomach ulcer and was gravely ill. Simon Tai operated on Frankie after a quick diagnosis and saved his life. Frankie remained in care for a couple of weeks and the aftercare from Simon and all the staff was exemplary. You treat our cats as part of the family and its very reassuring to know that City road vets are there to care for them. Thank you.” Kevin

“This is a lovely vets. They have seen us through the loss of our Jack Russell and welcomed Rosy in March. Everyone in the practice has been so friendly and kind, both to us and Rosy and the care has been excellent. It is the first time any of our dogs have been happy to go back into a vets, even after surgery. I would and do recommend this practice to everyone.” Hester Hitchins

“We brought Sasha here on recommendation for a skin disorder and found the staff and Mr Tai really helpful and friendly. I feel confident after Mr Tai’s diagnosis that we can get to grips with my dog’s problem. We took about an hour to get here but it was well worth it, and it is the first time ever that we have been offered a lovely cup of tea by any veterinary practice Thanks to everyone at City Vet’s as Arnie says, “I’ll be back!” Sheila Whitfield

“In 25 years of owning cocker spaniels we have been fortunate to have had our much-loved pets looked after by some great vets. For the past 5 years, since moving to Cornwall, we have found the best of the best at CityRoad vets in Lewes. All the staff are great, but in Simon Tai we have discovered the most wonderful vet of all. Our dogs, Minnie and Taffy, have been lucky to be tended by Simon; he cured Taffy’s skin condition when other vets (in other practices) had failed, he cared for Minnie with great compassion in her last months, and he saved Taffy’s life earlier this year when serious cancer was discovered following a seizure. We visited Taffy after his operation, and actually witnessed a bed being delivered to the surgery so that Simon could stay overnight to tend for Taff (and your pets in the future!) We were staggered to see how far Mr Tai would go to in order to care for our pet, and will always be grateful for his care, skill and commitment. Taff is happy, and well, due entirely to Simon. Thank you so much.” Andy and Debbie Hulks (on behalf of Taffy and Minnie)
