Our Ilkeston branch offers first class care and exceptional exotic animal services

Our Ilkeston branch is the most recent addition to the Ambivet family. However, despite technically being established in 2013, our owner John actually acquired the location on a whim more than 25 years ago.


John finally decided to completely demolish the building he had purchased after it was vandalised and falling to ruin, and purpose build a brand new surgery from the ground up.

At our Ilkeston branch your pet will receive the same unrivalled care you would expect to find in all our branches. Additionally, if you have an exotic animal you are recommended to visit our Ilkeston branch. One of our veterinary surgeons takes a strong personal interest in the health of unusual creatures, and is often referred to by other veterinary practices in the area.

Our Ilkeston team consists of 2 vets and a team of dedicated nurses and receptionists. For that reason you can look forward to being greeted by a familiar, friendly face on each visit.

Some of the services and facilities at our Ilkeston branch include:
  • A separate waiting area for felines
  • Separate cat, dog and exotic animal wards for post-surgery recovery
  • Fully equipped surgical suites
  • A digital radiography suite, endoscopy equipment, ultrasonography and dental facilities
  • Nurse clinics offering advice regarding animal health
  • Exotic animal care

AmbivetWP_013If your pet ever requires blood or urine analysis, their samples will be sent to the laboratory at our Heanor branch. Additionally, should your pet need to stay with us overnight, we will make the necessary arrangements to safely transport them to our main hospital.
