The Queen's Veterinary School Hospital


At The Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital, we are dedicated to delivering care that is as unique as each patient. We offer a bespoke approach, recognising that the ‘gold standard’ may not fit everyone’s needs or circumstances. Clinicians always discuss the range of treatment options available to ensure our clients can make an informed care choice.

Our Teaching Hospital prides itself on its not-for-profit approach, ensuring that all income is channelled back into the hospital to provide the highest quality care and state-of-the-art equipment.  Our multidisciplinary expertise is combined with the latest technology to ensure outstanding care. By offering common procedures at a fixed cost, we provide transparent pricing for our referring colleagues and their clients. Our tailored care plans are comprehensive, encompassing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that reflect the distinct situation of every patient and client. We enhance value with contextual care and fixed-price services, guaranteeing that your clients receive the very best care at the best possible price.
