As the longest established independent practice in Cwmbran, your pet will be treated by experienced local vets


Our journey began in 1989, when dedicated vet Richard Smith founded the New Inn practice.

Starting off as a solo vet in the New Inn practice, Richard’s aim was to deliver outstanding care to the animals of the Pontypool area. Within a short time, the business was supporting 3 vets and had outgrown its original premises. With growing demand, a second surgery was opened in Fairwater, Cwmbran in 1997. This gave the space for continued growth, with the busines now supporting 4 vets, 5 nurses, 4 receptionists and a practice manager.

26 years on from New Inn’s opening, we have registered over 34,000 local pets, and now have four full-time vets and five veterinary nurses dedicated to caring for our patients.
