We are a small animal practice in Rotherham and Sheffield, first established in the 1980’s. Your pets are our priority and our skilled team of veterinarians and vet nurses are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals. Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care. We also offer free parking for clients at both surgeries.
Grant qualified in 1987 from Onderstepoort in Pretoria, South Africa, and served in the South African Cavalry for two years as a vet shortly after. He decided to come to the UK in 1989 and started working at A. Crooks & Partners Veterinary Surgery in 1993, where he became a partner in 1995. Grant is married and the proud dad of two daughters. His extended family include Molly and Nelly the Border Terriers, Milo the Whippet and Panda, the Shetland pony. In his spare time Grant enjoys horse riding, dog walking and hiking in Derbyshire with the family (if he’s not carrying their bags in shopping malls).
