About Us

Hunt’s Veterinary Clinics first opened its doors in 1966 & although we were originally mixed practice we converted our clinics to cover small animal only in November 1997 and we’ve been caring for small animals ever since. We are an RCVS accredited small animal practice with three branches: Poynton (main branch- currently acting as our diagnostic and surgical hub), Woodley and Cheadle Hulme. Each site is furnished to a high specification so that our high standards of care are uniform across all three sites. Here at Hunt's Vets we have a fantastic working environment which is credit to our wonderful, friendly team. We have an experienced team which means we are able to offer some fantastic support. Our current team is made up of 5 vets, 6 RVN’s, an SVN, Receptionist and VCA and 2 support staff.

We are really lucky to be based in a fantastic location! All three of our sites are just a short distance from the centre of Manchester for those of you that like the hustle and bustle of the City, but also just a short journey out to the beautiful Peak District National Park. Geographically, a perfect location to lay down roots! Want to know more about working for IVC? Check out our benefits!
