Facilities & Services
Our laboratory offers a rapid and efficient service with fast turnaround of results. Many branches have state-of-the-art in-house equipment for an even faster service. In addition to testing for the disease in an unwell patient, we also offer screening tests before your pet undergoes an anaesthetic to ensure that we identify any previously unknown problems, helping us to ensure the anaesthetic is as safe as possible.
A friendly welcome awaits you at our long-established kennels and cattery in Chingford, East London. We offer short and long-term boarding in a friendly and comfortable environment for your pets. Our Chingford veterinary practice is on-site to ensure that your pet’s medical needs will be well cared for.
We offer 15-minute appointments as a standard for all consultations, giving you plenty of time to discuss your pet’s healthcare and ask any questions you may have. We are able to provide a range of services during the consultation and are always on hand to see your pet in an emergency if necessary.
80% of dogs and cats over three years of age suffer some form of dental disease. Thankfully, the majority of dental problems are treatable and most are preventable. Speak to your local team for more information. Our practices are well equipped to perform routine dental procedures, and many of them benefit from dental X-rays to help diagnose and guide treatment.
We offer a referral service for diagnosis and treatment with CT scans, advanced x-rays and ultrasound. These imaging tests can be offered as an outpatient service, or as part of the treatment for patients hospitalised with us. We employ a number of specialists and certificate holders who are able to provide an expert opinion in interpreting these tests.
Free pet insurance
We are able to issue four weeks’ Petplan® insurance free of charge. Petplan® is the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider and we are proud to recommend them for your pet. We think it is important that all pets are covered by pet insurance, offering you peace of mind that you will not need to cover the costs of unexpected bills if your pet becomes unwell.

Budget monthly and save money on all your pet’s preventative healthcare needs. Our affordable plan allows you to pay a monthly direct debit to spread the cost of your pet’s vaccinations and parasite control products throughout the year.
