Welcome To St Runwald's Veterinary Surgery 

 The passing of a friend and greatly respected professional colleague.

We are all saddened to hear of the passing of a valued colleague and eminent veterinary surgeon in Colchester. Marcus Harrington cared for many local pets during a professional career of over 30 years running The Ark Veterinary Surgery in Lexden. Whilst we only had opportunity for an occasional conversation we shared our respective views on several subjects and l will miss him greatly.

My deepest sympathy is extended to his family and friends at this time

Anita and team at St Runwalds.


We are very pleased to announce that we will be holding a vaccine amnesty in June.

As many of you will be aware sadly in past months we have encountered difficulty in obtaining a consistent supply of certain vaccines due to national shortages. During June therefore we will offer a full course of the routine cat and dog vaccines (excluding rabies and kennel cough) for the price of an annual booster.

This represents a significant saving for everyone and enables pets to be brought up to date with their vaccinations after a difficult past 2 years.

To take advantage of this offer please call the surgery on 01206 572173 to book your appointment.

Best wishes Anita, Medivet, Maldon Road (St Runwalds Vets)
