Don't just take our word for it. Here’s a selection of recent testimonials from referring vets and pet owners who have entrusted their animals to our care.  Over 90% of pet owners who have had cases referred say they would recommend us to family and friends.

  • Ralph Bailey - Director, East Barnet Veterinary Surgery

    "We have used the RVC for referrals and out-of-hours emergency provision at weekends for many years. The feedback we receive from our clients is excellent regarding both services. All are delighted by the excellent facilities and professional service they receive. For our part we get rapid reporting of cases and excellent case management. Urgent referrals get seen quickly.

    "Over the years we have built good working relationships with many of the clinicians, who are always willing to help us out with advice regarding our patients – even when we don’t intend to refer them to the hospital. It’s good to know that we have the back-up and support of the RVC for challenging cases."

  • Melanie Taylor - Practice Principal, Halian Veterinary Centre, Frogmore

    "Having a world-class referral centre on our doorstep is good for both me and my clients. They get access to first class specialists and, having been a student there, I know that when I refer a case my patient will get excellent care. The Queen Mother Hospital also provides my out-of-hours emergency service. It is reassuring to know my patients will get the best care possible at all times of the day."

    Physiotherapy and rehabilitation, following ligament surgery

    "The service and the staff at the RVC are simply brilliant - following ligament surgery, Lily, my Golden Retriever, came to the hospital a number of times as part of her rehabilitation programme.  The staff are always incredibly accommodating, professional and caring and helped Lily to overcome her nerves.  We will be back!"
