About Us

St Francis Veterinary Hospital was opened in the late 90's. Dr Simon Rigby joined the St Francis family in 2003 and became a senior partner and owner in 2006. Dr Marlene Norton joined the family in 2007 where she joined in ownership in 2008 with Dr Simon Rigby.

St Francis Veterinary Hospital is named after the Paton Saint of Animals :
St Francis of Assisi

Our philosophy is quite simple: to provide the very best personal service to you and your pets. We place strong emphasis on communication because as pet owners ourselves, we understand the importance of honesty and sensitivity when dealing with the much loved members of our families. Every pet is unique and deserves our individual attention and compassionate care, whatever the problem. Our Hospital aims to create a calm, welcoming environment where it is our healthcare team's responsibility that your pets needs are met.



Scotty Valadao – Canine Behaviourist

In addition to St Francis being my own personal vet for the past 7 years, I have had extensive exposure to many of their clients over the past 8 years, to assist with dogs exhibiting behaviour concerns. In all this time the only report back I received from clients is the highest of praise for the practice - the dedication and caring shown not just to the animals but to the owners as well - the highest standard of veterinary care -  and constant comments that 'they would not change their vet for the world.'

Dealing with the practice from a professional point of view, every assistance required is more than willingly supplied and care and interest is shown towards their clients and the dogs I am working with.

This practice is called after the Patron Saint of Animals, St. Francis of Assisi and is well named, as the attributes of this Saint are shown and practised not just by the vets concerned, but by the vet nurses, the receptionists, the animal assistants etc, in fact, every member of the staff concerned.  I myself have only the highest regard for the practise and would not dream of taking my own animals anywhere else.
