Donnachie and Townley Veterinary surgeons originally practiced in Church Street, Rugeley, there having been a veterinary practice on that site since 1923.

Due to the continual expansion of the companion animal side of the practice, a move became inevitable, and in 1992 the Veterinary Centre was opened in Market Street, Rugeley.

The Centre is a purpose-built premise, designed to provide the most comprehensive veterinary care for your pet. The practice has a new purpose-built branch surgery in Stafford which also provides consultation, surgical, imaging, and diagnostic facilities for companion animals.
