History of the Practice

A well-established veterinary practice

A little practice with a lot of heart

The history of Brookmead Veterinary Surgery in Cranleigh goes back over 50 years. During and after the Second World War, it was operating from Pittance Farm on Smithwood Common and was an agricultural and equine practice run by Mr J Craft.
Later the veterinary practice was relocated to Broadoak, and in 1973, it moved across the road to the present site. By then, it was trading as A.G. Berry & W. Miller, Veterinary Surgeons.
During the 1970s and 1980s, the small animal side of the practice expanded. In 1980, Mr Miller retired, Mike Harrison took over and the practice continued to go from strength to strength as Berry and Harrison, with Mr Berry as consultant.
The practice changed its name to Brookmead Veterinary Surgery in the early 1990s. Neil Coode joined the team in 1989 and became a partner in 1996. In 2007, Neil Horton became a partner and then in 2010 Mike Harrison and his wife Christine (who was Office Manager) retired.
The present building dates from the late 1880s when it was built as the doctor's house and surgery with stables to house his pony and trap. It includes a number of old features such as a bread oven in the kitchen and oak panelling in the waiting room.
Our long history gives our practice well-established roots in the local community, and we still believe in the same ‘old fashioned’ customer service values on which the practice was founded, adding the latest in modern veterinary medical science to provide a complete package of care for your pets.
