Established in the 1920s
The house was built in the 1860s and has a long and interesting history. In the early 1920s a young Dr. Rolston came down from London to Haslemere to set up practice and was the only Doctor in Haslemere for the next twenty years. He called his practice Crofts and the name has been retained ever since.
The first veterinary practice in Haslemere
On his retirement in 1948 a lady veterinary surgeon bought the house and the first veterinary practice in Haslemere was established. She was succeeded by two more veterinary surgeons before Michael and Ann Sealey bought the house and practice in 1991.
A new era
In 2015 Michael decided to hand over the reins of Crofts and retire to his work shop and garage. Chris and Lucy Gray took over the task of maintaining the quality and continuity of care that the practice is renowned for. They are fully committed to continuing to run the practice in the same way as Michael, with dedication and hard work.
Lucy and Chris have pledged to continue to cultivate the traditional ethos whilst still driving the business forward technologically and aesthetically. An extensive improvement programme is underway to offer you and your pet even better facilities, shorter waiting times, more appointments and up-to-date technology to improve diagnosis.
Chris comes from a sheep farming background in Northumberland. He qualified from Edinburgh, achieving a First Class with Distinction and winning the William Dick Prize for the most distinguished graduate. He has worked for almost twenty years at busy small animal practices which has equipped him with the experience and skills needed to look after your pet.
