Info for Pet Owners

Information for pet owners on hospital care, booking appointments, our facilities, fees, and our research and teaching.

Hospital care

We will do our best to look after your pet in hospital, keep you informed and advise on aftercare. We cannot, unfortunately, permit routine visits.


Consultations take an hour or less and we need you to make some preparations.

Visitor facilities

We have free parking and a canteen to make your visit more pleasant.


We will provide you with an estimate of any investigation and treatment. Please ensure that you bring an insurance claim form or payment to your appointment.

Research and teaching

We may ask for your help in advancing our understanding of animal diseases and training the vets of the future.

Find us

We are easily reached by public transport or by car.

Contact us

Our veterinary surgeons are unable to speak to pet owners directly. Owners can request that the veterinary surgeon who is responsible for the primary care of your animals can contact us for assistance.
