Local and special vets

Bandage dogThe majority of us use whichever vet is closest and most convenient, unless at some point some more specialist service is required. The nearest Veterinary Clinic is Goddards on Kennington Road, part of a group which has clinics throughout London. Out of hours service is provided by  Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital in Wimbledon.

Only slightly further away is Andrew Kirby Vets on Grange Road, which is also open on Sunday mornings. In an emergency they advise that you call the surgery first to let staff know you are coming. Emma Styles runs a clinic from 10am to 2pm each Tuesday and on some Thursday evenings offering acupuncture, Tui Na massage and Chinese herbal medicine. It’s best to contact her directly for information or an appointment.

Visiting the vet is often a highly stressful event for both pet and owner. TV vet Bruce Fogle comes highly recommended by a number of dog owners who needed a more tailored approach to annual vaccinations. His manner in dealing with people and pets is warm and he is responsive to individual requirements. Bruce works from The London Vet Clinic in W1 which boasts a number of specialists in areas such as Dermatology and Diagnostic Imaging.

For those who would like to try a herbal approach to pet care Barrier Animal Care Clinic in Charlton SE7 offer a monthly clinic with Veerle Dejonckheere who is qualified to treat animals using Acupuncture or Herbal Medicine.
