Animates was established in 2005, and is dedicated to the care of companion animals. We
aim to provide an excellent service for your pet, within a caring and friendly atmosphere.
We have two practices, located in the village of Thurlby, and the town of Market Deeping,
both just off the A15, within easy reach of Bourne, the Deepings, Stamford, Peterborough
and surrounding villages. Both practices have ample off road parking.
Animates is a companion animal practice. We have a friendly team that are always ready to
help. Both practices are fully equipped with on site facilities including ‘in-house’ blood
analysis, digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, dental equipment, ultrasound, endoscope, ECG,
blood pressure monitoring and excellent theatre facilities. Dog and cat wards are separate,
and for larger dogs we have walk-in kennels. Animates staff provide an out of hours
emergency service based at the Thurlby practice.
In 2012, Animates welcomed our exotics vet Sarah Pellett BSc(Hons) MA VetMB Cert
AVP(ZooMed) MRCVS. Sarah is happy to see a wide range of exotic animals including small
mammals, reptiles, rabbits and birds including parrots, raptors and chickens. Sarah is based
at our Thurlby practice.
Consultations are by appointment only. We operate on this basis to try to avoid unnecessary
waiting for you and stress for your animals. We will always accommodate emergency cases,
but please phone first so that we can prepare for your arrival. For any ongoing illnesses we
prefer the same vet to complete any follow up consultations and will endeavour to ensure
this happens. If you would like to see a specific vet then please make reception aware upon
booking your appointment.

Animates 10th Birthday Open Day
We held our Open Day on Saturday 13th June to celebrate 10 years of practice at our Thurlby
branch, and to thank clients old and new for their support over this time with a fun and
interesting day. Despite the slightly damp conditions of a typical british summers day we had
many visitors, both current clients and pet owners viewing the premises for the first time.
Our newly opened Exotics Clinic was a massive hit. Visitors were able to mix with many different
exotic creatures such as tortoises (ranging from babies to the giant Aldabra!), snakes, lizards
and tarantulas. Our Vet Sarah Pellett was on hand to answer an curious questions.
Our Small Animal Clinic for cats and dogs was open to take a look around the premises. Many
visitors commented on how interesting it was to see "behind the scenes", and took comfort in
knowing where their pets would be treated or operated on. Staff and visitors alike had a
fantastic day enjoyed by all!
In celebration of 10 years of practice in Thurlby we are pleased to announce that we have raised £408.66 from our open day events
and raffle. This will be donated to the Peterborough & District Herpetological & Exotics Society, The Norfolk Tortoise Club, The Labrador
Rescue, Cats Protection League and The Cinque Ports Rescue. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this.
