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

about-us

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.
