About us 

Since 2006, we’ve been one of the country’s leading veterinary specialist referral hospitals with vets and their teams caring for small animals every day. 

Our dedicated vets, nurses and nursing assistants, supported by the administrative teams, are committed to providing the highest quality surgical and medical care for pets. Many of our clinicians are nationally or internationally recognised specialists in their field and bring unique experiences to care for pets.  

We accept referrals for Orthopaedic Surgery, Soft Tissue Surgery, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Internal Medicine, Dentistry, Cardiology, Anaesthesia, Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging, Oncology, Physiotherapy as well as Emergency and Critical Care (ECC) and a Pain Clinic. 

We have comprehensive and established clinical and non-clinical programmes for training, development and CPD. 

You can find us in Hampshire, just south of Winchester, close to the M3 and national and international transport links. We are in a serene countryside setting with state-of-the-art facilities and are available to look after pets 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Our vision is to be the south of England’s multidisciplinary veterinary referral hospital of choice, where referring vets, clients and their pets receive the best possible care.  

Our mission is to create an inspiring, inclusive, professional environment where the team are empowered to work together to consistently deliver exceptional care and service.
