Our History

Archway launched in our convenient location on High Street in Highworth, Swindon in 1982, and our mission has stayed the same ever since: to keep local pets healthy and their owners happy.

By doing that we’ve attracted like-minded people, and over the years our long-standing team members have become a family. 

​Simon Wolfensohn established Archway with his wife, and still lives locally and works with us part-time. Caroline Smith, our practice manager, first joined the practice in 1988. Other members of the team have been here for over a decade. 

​What that means is that we know our community, and we know our clients. We pride ourselves on being a small, welcoming and approachable team, and treat every patient and client as an individual.

​We have good facilities, and strive to provide a first-class general practice service for small animals. We have laboratory facilities for a range of diagnostic tests, digital x-ray equipment and ultrasound, and dentistry work.

​In the case of emergencies and overnight care we have a relationship with Vets Now in Swindon, who provide a super service, and we’re always happy to help you find any services that we don’t offer ourselves. 

​Introducing a pet into your family is a happy time, and we want to make sure that it is. Call in to meet the team and see for yourself how we do just that!
