SMART Specialist Veterinary Referrals is the only independent pain management and sports medicine rehabilitation centre in Europe.

The clinics have gained a world wide reputation in the field of veterinary rehabilitation and sports medicine. Our staff are regularly called upon to lecture internationally at specialist conferences, not only in Europe but as far afield as Australia. Our veterinary surgeons and chartered physiotherapists will develop a tailored programme designed to address each patient’s individual requirements and return them to an active life as quickly as possible. Whether your pet is recovering from surgery; underperforming in sporting disciplines such as agility, obedience or sheep dog trialling; or unable to exercise due to conditions such as arthritis, hip and elbow dysplasia or spinal disease, we can develop a program to improve their mobility and reduce their pain. Our nurses and support staff also provide a free consultation service on nutrition and weight management. Just as importantly they will advise on how to keep your pet happy and entertained during periods of reduced activity. Both clinics are easily accessible from the M4 motorway affording easy access to our clients from the whole of the UK.
