Alternatively, the nearest tube station is Upton Park. If you are coming on the bus, the No. 5, 115, 147 and 330 all make stops very close to the practice. 

What to do in the event of an Emergency 

In the event of an emergency, or if your pet is unwell outside the practice hours, then we have an emergency vet hospital that can provide urgent assistance. Our veterinary hospitals are open 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day. The closest hospital to our Plaistow practice is the Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital. They can be contacted on 020 8946. For your peace of mind, and continuity of care, your pet’s medical history is accessible from all of our branches, at any time. 

Highest Standards of Veterinary Care 

Our Plaistow practice is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Following a diligent assessment, the RCVS is satisfied that we maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. 

In light of our work in reducing the stress cats experience when attending veterinary practices, we have been awarded the internationally recognised Cat-Friendly Clinic status.
