McKinney Veterinary Practice is proud to remain an independent practice. This means that as a client and pet owner, the treatment and advice can be tailored to your needs. There is no pressure for our team to meet targets set by the distant owners like many corporate practices.
We are also proud to provide around the clock care to your animals, 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. If you require a vet in an emergency, you will always see one of our own dedicated vets at our own premises. Out of hours, the phone will be answered in person and the receptionist will then contact the duty vet for you, this means there is you will have no worries about whether the message has been received or not. If you are asked to leave a number for the duty vet to contact you, please leave a number where you will be available to answer to make the experience as smooth as possible.
We are a 2-branch practice, first established in Broughton-in-Furness in the 1950s. We then opened a 2nd branch in Millom in 1988 to provide more accessible veterinary treatment in the area. Consultations take place at both practices, with our main branch at Broughton, where we have our theatre, kennels and diagnostic facilities. The Millom branch is open every afternoon and Wednesday morning for consultations and prescription collections.
Out of Hours Emergencies
Veterinary advice and assistance is available 24 hours a day. During office hours please contact the surgery. Outside of these hours please continue to call 01229 716230 to speak to a receptionist.
