The County Veterinary Clinic was established in January 2005. Over the last ten years, we have grown into the premier small animal veterinary practice in the Taunton area, and we continue to provide an outstanding level of care and service for our clients and their pets, based around a friendly, approachable and highly professional team of vets and nurses who care about what they do. Over 90% of our new clients come to us as a result of recommendations from existing clients.

We have surgeries in Taunton and Ilminster. Both surgeries are easily accessible with plentiful on-site parking. Please contact us if you need any further information.

  • Appointments available seven days a week
  • Full 24-hour emergency service 
  • We are officially a "Cat-Friendly" Practice (approved by the International Society for Feline Medicine)
  • Guide Dog approved practice
  • Visiting specialists


Our colleagues at Animedics at Creech Castle will cover out-of-hours duties for both practices on Monday and Thursday nights each week, and we will do the same on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Friday nights and weekend “on-call” duties will alternate between each practice on a weekly basis. Do not worry if your pet is hospitalised over a night or weekend when we are not on duty – staff will still look after inpatients.

This service is only available to registered/regular clients of County Veterinary Clinic and Animedics Veterinary Centre.

All emergencies will be seen at the premises of whichever practice is on duty (either at County Veterinary Clinic, 137 Kingston Road, Taunton TA2 7SR or Animedics Veterinary Centre, Creech Castle, Bathpool Taunton TA1 2DX). If you have an emergency, call our usual practice number (01823 326222) and you will be given the number for the answering service (01209 823276), or call the answering service direct and they will contact the duty vet. Please note this is for genuine emergencies only!!
