Client Information Evenings and Events

Our team of vets and vet nurses often run special information evenings and events for our clients. Check out our upcoming events here.

Pre-Hibernation Tortoise Evening

Saffron Walden Surgery

Tuesday 9th October at 7.30pm

Our pre-hibernation tortoise evening includes a fun tortoise quiz and lots of information for tortoise owners and those looking to get a tortoise as a pet.

This year we would like to invite you to bring your tortoises along! All tortoises MUST be brought in a suitable carrier or box (unfortunately we cannot allow the tortoises to mix due to the potential for disease spread).

More details to follow.

Spaces are strictly limited and attendance is by confirmed bookings only.

Please contact reception to book your place.
