The Highcliff Practice Surgeries   ~    Caring for all Your Pet's Needs   ~    A Wealth of Experience

In both our practices, we have many highly experienced veterinary surgeons who provide expertise across a wide range of species - from cats and dogs to more exotic reptiles and birds. We offer up-to-date services and a practical approach to preventative health care, general advice, emergency treatment and routine operations.

We can help with everything from microchipping, spaying/neutering, nail clipping and vaccination to life-saving surgery for your beloved family pets. We keep a range of popular brands of food and accessories for dogs, cats and birds etc. in our surgeries. Available online, we have a number of advice guides to help you look after your pets.

The Highcliff Veterinary Practice is a long-established reputable local practice serving south Suffolk and the Essex-border area. We offer many products and services to help domestic pets. Whether you have a hamster or a Great Dane, we are here to help!

You see our members of staff regularly in their veterinary role, have you wondered what they do in their spare time?  It might just surprise you!

Sue Perry has been at our Hadleigh Practice for 28 years, and has worked as a nurse through many changes at Highcliff, the most significant

one being the move from a mixed practice to wholly companion animals in 2012.  Since that time she moved to become a receptionist and

really likes this new position.  She can bring“behind the scenes experience” to our clients offering an added dimension to her advice. 

Sue enjoys the variety in her job, as well as meeting many people she has got to know over the years. 


What you may not be aware of is that she loves the world of art and has become an accomplished artist herself, specialising in painting

birds in acrylic.  She has been exhibiting in East Anglia for some 25 years, starting with a local gallery in Hadleigh and has since shown her

work annually at many local exhibitions.  One more recent one was in the ancient market town of Holt, Norfolk where there are many

prestigious art galleries.


After continued success last year, she has started 2015 very well at the Suffolk Show and our own long established Hadleigh Show,

where she is also Head Steward for the Art Exhibition.  Whilst she loves her veterinary job, you can see that she is pleased it is part time,

as she paints for the rest of the week!


She is now thrilled to have been asked to exhibit a selection of originals and prints at a new gallery which has just opened at Monks Eleigh.

Brett Gallery is part of Bridge Farms Barns, formally Corncraft.  To be part of this exciting new project with its fresh surroundings opens

up new horizons and gives Sue the opportunity to exhibit in a gallery.  It also enables her to continue to learn more about the fine art world.


Recently with her partner John, also working at Highcliff, they have created a website, why not take a look!  It is being developed to the high

professional standard warranted by her work and, although established only recently, it is already full of many examples of her talent. 

Sue has added personal comments to most of the paintings, explaining more about each bird, as well as interesting anecdotes here

and there, as to what appealed to her about the choice of subject.  


Sue’s website can be found at www.suzanneperryart.com  It is definitely worth a visit.
