We accept referrals from other vets in:

Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics and Soft Tissue Surgery.


To make a referral, please have your own vet contact our Newbury hospital and e-mail your pet’s clinical records to us and we can take it from there.

Please contact Mark Ames, Shaun Ferneley or Will Hodge directly for a price. Our costs are usually significantly lower than a specialist referral practice.
