Loving and caring for your pets as if they are our own.
We understand just how important pets are
We know every individual animal has become an integral part of our family life. That’s why we strive to provide the best veterinary care possible.
We take pride in every aspect of our work. Whether it’s a routine treatment of a minor ailment or an emergency life saving operation.
Since 1992 our Veterinary Centres in Bolsover and Totley have continued to serve Chesterfield, Sheffield and the surrounding areas.
Our team are highly trained, skilful and passionate individuals who, as a group, devote their lives to patient care.
Born in Bolsover, I returned to my hometown after qualifying as a veterinary surgeon and set up Croft Veterinary Centre in 1992. We continue to serve Bolsover and the surrounding areas, dedicated to ensuring the health and wellbeing of your pets.
With the advancement in veterinary equipment, care and diagnostics we are moving to exciting new premises in Bolsover to continue providing you with the best service possible.
We remain, family owned and independent with an exceptional veterinary team, loving and caring for your pets as if they are our own.
We look forward to welcoming you.
After graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2017, I moved back home to the East Midlands and have worked in small animal practice in the East Midlands ever since. I moved to Croft in 2021, and have loved meeting your furry friends and helping them stay healthy. I enjoy surgery, and like to keep busy learning new skills to give the best care I can.
In my spare time, I love to take my Cocker Spaniel, Bertie, on long walks in the countryside.
My name is Bob and I’m the Accounts & Data Analyst here at Croft
A True Yorkshireman, I live in Leeds, and I’ve been associated with Croft Veterinary Centre for the past 14 years. When the opportunity came in May 2022 to join them full-time there was no hesitation and being no stranger to Bolsover it made the decision easier.
I find the whole process of Veterinary care fascinating, and the level of professionalism that goes into the treatment and care of pets here at Croft is of upmost importance and I feel proud to be a part of the team
Outside of work and back up North, I live a typical family life, unfortunately I don’t have a Whippet but up until recently we had two house rabbits. I have a keen interest in sport, still playing some football, a bit of cycling and I’m a student in the Martial Art of Taekwondo.
