We are a small animal practice in Halesworth, first established in 1950. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. For your added convenience, there’s free on-site parking for clients at the surgery.
Lucy graduated from Cambridge University in the summer of 2020 and started at Fromus shortly afterwards. She really enjoys working with all species but is especially partial to ducks. In her free time Lucy enjoys exploring the countryside on her bike, visiting the amazing local bakeries and doing a bit of baking herself which luckily for us she enjoys sharing with her colleagues. Lucy doesn’t currently have any pets but her parents are looking after five ducks at home whom Lucy hatched out during the first lockdown.

Imogen Elliot BVetMed MRCVS
Imogen is our newest member of the veterinary team and qualified as a vet from the University of Nottingham in 2021. She grew up locally and is very glad to be back in this beautiful region. In her spare time she enjoys baking, doing Parkruns (albeit slowly) and spending time outdoors; walking and taking pictures of wildlife, cycling and tending to her chickens and soon to be rescue guinea pigs. She is very much looking forward to meeting more of you and your wonderful pets as time goes on.
