Welcome to Wanstead Veterinary Hospital

The Wanstead Veterinary Hospital was opened on this site in 1972 and was the original headquarters for the rapidly expanding practice at the time. Our hospital offers many different services under one roof, from vaccinations and health-checks to consultations, diagnostic tests, and a range of medical and surgical treatments. We are open 24hrs a day, 365 days per year, with experienced vets and nurses always on hand to care for your pet. In addition to our comprehensive general practice services, we are also proud to offer a range of referral services. Our state of the art CT scanner quickly generates thousands of images that can be of great benefit for the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases. We are one of only a few practices in Greater London to be able to offer this service.

We are dedicated to offering a friendly and compassionate service to our clients and providing the highest quality healthcare for your pet. Our veterinary surgeons are assisted by knowledgeable and experienced staff helping us set the standards for excellence in veterinary care. We offer separate cat and dog waiting areas in our spacious air-conditioned reception area to ensure your pets remain calm and comfortable. We also provide complimentary coffee and tea and video information screens. The reception area offers a wide range of pet accessories and high-quality complete pet foods and our reception team will be happy to advise on your pet’s nutritional and health needs.

We have excellent facilities including consultation rooms, dedicated operating suites, separate dog and cat hospitalisation wards, isolation areas where strict barrier nursing techniques are observed. We pride ourselves on our intensive care facilities with fluid infusion pumps, oxygen therapy kennels, heating incubators and advanced monitoring equipment.

All of our hospital veterinary surgeons have their own areas of particular interest and are available to provide further advice and experienced veterinary opinion for referrals in many of the following disciplines:

  • Emergency and critical care
  • Orthopaedic surgery
  • Keyhole surgery
  • Soft tissue surgery
  • Ophthalmology
  • Internal medicine
