Hospital for Small Animals

Research and teaching

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


We are a teaching hospital and students will probably be present at your referral consultation. They are also likely to assist with the care of your pet during any stay at the hospital.

You can be reassured that any treatment or procedure is supervised by our service clinicians.


We undertake ethically-approved research in the hospital, in a highly transparent manner, with the aim of transforming patient care. We are determined to understand more about why animals become ill with the ultimate aim of developing novel diagnostic tests, superior treatments and better preventative health strategies.
