Where amazing animals meet amazing people

Everyone at The Animal Hospital loves animals. From the first person you see at reception to the highly qualified specialists.

They've dedicated their lives to animals. And it shows. No challenge is too big or too small for us. From the tiniest canary to the biggest elephant (true story, we have treated elephants). If it's an animal we'll give it 100% care and love.

The facts behind the furry feelings

Animals fill us with love and happiness. But when your beloved pet gets sick or injured, you'll want to know the facts behind your vet. Here are ours:

  • 85 qualified vets on staff including a number of veterinary specialists
  • Covering every major discipline such as Primary Care, Emergency and Farm Animals
  • The very latest facilities and equipment

What does this mean for you?

All of the above means we are well positioned to deliver the right diagnosis and the right treatment to ensure the recovery of your animal.
