Our practice was a derelict former art gallery before we made it what it is today.

When Amber and Suzanne looked around the premises in 2011, they saw something not a lot of others did. They were faced with a large, damp and derelict building that they believed they could turn into an impressive veterinary practice; they were right.

A considerable amount of planning, re-structuring, tender love and care went in to making our practice what it is today. 

Today our clients are surprised when they hear how our practice began its existence. With a comfortable and spacious waiting area, dedicated surgery, x-ray room, 3 consulting rooms and separate wards for dogs and cats, it’s hard to believe the building we’re all so proud of was once about to be condemned.

We decided upon our name (after much consideration!) because we want to be part of the neighbourhood and community. We think it is important that clients can feel they can drop in to talk to us. 

We understand that many people and their animals dislike the whole experience of going to the vet, however we think things can be different. At The Neighbourhood Vet, we want clients and pets to be happy and we have created a practice which we hope will ensure a positive experience.

Whilst we think our building is really lovely and an important part of practice, our staff are what makes The Neighbourhood Vet what it is. Without our team of passionate, experienced animal lovers, we wouldn’t be able to offer the unrivalled services we provide today.

We have a happy, stimulating work environment so our staff can work to the best of their abilities. We also ensure staff undertake regular courses and training to improve their knowledge and retain their interest in their work.

Our practice has a wonderful setting across the road from Peckham Rye Park; we also have ample parking for our guests. When you visit us, simply look out for our big yellow sign!
