At NuVet, we aim to combine the latest equipment, drugs and techniques with experience, care and dedication, to always provide your pet with the best possible care. All members of staff devote a lot of time to keeping up to date with the latest medical thinking, and learning how to use all our state-of-the-art equipment. Technology is a great asset to us at NuVet, but, just as important, are the people using the technology. We pride ourselves on the quality of our facilities and equipment, and we have been accredited by several professional organisations. Our facilities include:

  • Keyhole surgery including keyhole bitch spays
  • Cutting edge technology – K-laser therapy, digital x-ray, dental x-ray, ultrasonography, digital otoscopy…
  • Spacious ward facilities including cat ward, walk-in kennels and isolation facilities
  • Separate dog and cat waiting areas

Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Accreditation

We are part of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme, a voluntary system by which practices are monitored to ensure they are reaching the best standard. Only half of UK vet practices are accredited. To become a member of the Practice Standards Scheme, each vet practice must be regularly inspected to make sure they are up to date with equipment, training, health and safety and legislation. For more information, please see the Royal College information page.

Cat Friendly Clinic

NuVet is also accredited as a “Cat Friendly Clinic” as awarded by International Cat Care, part of the International Society of Feline Medicine. This is a rigorous accreditation scheme designed to demonstrate that certified clinics:

  • Understand the unique needs of cats and have made veterinary visits more cat-friendly
  • Understand how to approach and handle cats in a gentle, empathetic and caring manner
  • Have good standards of equipment needed to investigate and treat feline diseases
  • Have a good standard of facilities and care for hospitalised cats

We have worked hard to achieve this status. All our clinical areas (hospital wards, theatres and consultation rooms) are designed to minimise stress for our feline patients, and we have a designated cat waiting area in reception. We ask clients with dogs to avoid this area, to avoid cats becoming more stressed than necessary. Here at NuVet we have:

  • A cat friendly waiting room
  • A separate cat ward for hospitalised patients
  • A Cat Advocate to answer any questions you have
  • Cat scales available in every consultation room
