We are a small animal (pet) veterinary practice on the Fairfield Estate in Louth, Lincolnshire.

Professional Vets

Black Sheep Vets has a well-equipped surgery offering x-ray, endoscope, ultrasound and in-house laboratory facilities for prompt investigation and treatment.

House calls We do house calls by arrangement but will try to fit them in from 2pm to 4 pm or after surgery.

Black Sheep Vets is at 4 Meridian Centre, Belvoir Way, LN11 0LQ on the Fairfield Industrial Estate, Louth. The easiest approach is to turn onto the industrial estate at B&Q then take the turn off behind B&Q (Belvoir Way). Follow this road to the Meridian Centre (blue-green units) on the left side, Clockwork Removals on the right side. We are in the end unit on the left side in the Meridian Centre. 

Free parking Being on the industrial estate gives us free and ample parking close to the surgery with disabled access into the building.

By having an appointment system and a spacious waiting room allows clients and their pets to be seen promptly with minimal waiting times.
