For Pet Owners

Your vet has referred your pet to us because they know we have the knowledge, skills and expertise to deliver the best possible treatment and care.  Your pet will be looked after by a team of specialist vets and nurses from around the world whose main focus is on making animals better.

Exceptional animal and client care for everyone

As well as being experts in their fields, our staff are first and foremost animal lovers. Most of us have pets and we appreciate the distress felt when animals are ill or injured. We strive to deliver exceptional client care as well as animal care. We will fully explain to you what is happening to your pet and share detailed medical and aftercare information with your local vet. 

Our clinical teams are supported by veterinary specialists-in-training, who are experienced vets undergoing advanced training in their chosen fields, just as NHS consultants will have done. Competition to become veterinary specialists-in-training is intense, with many highly qualified vets applying for each place. The veterinary nursing team is made up of some of the most experienced and best qualified nurses in the UK, many of whom have advanced qualifications in their chosen fields. They have expertise in caring for some of the most challenging cases seen in veterinary practice and nursing them back to health.

Visiting your pet in hospital

All pet owner visits are by appointment only. In order to book an appointment, please call us and ask to speak to the clinician treating your pet. We would appreciate as much notice as possible to avoid any disappointment.  This document provides information about visiting your pet at the hospital. 

Our vets and veterinary nurses have a genuine love of animals. The care received is second to none

The people and facilities at the RVC ensure all pets receive the best care
