For pet owners

Experts in veterinary, specialists in caring

Over recent years there have been marked advances in veterinary medicine and surgery, and a structure mirroring that seen in the human field has developed. In order for your pet to have access to the latest diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, your primary care vet, where appropriate, may offer to refer you and your pet to a Specialist much like your GP might refer you to a consultant.

 

Why choose NiVS

NiVS is Northern Ireland’s first and only Specialist-led, multidisciplinary, small animal referral hospital. We have come together from the largest referral hospitals and academic institutions across the UK and Ireland and bring with us an unrivalled level of specialist experience.

When referred to NiVS, you can rest assured that your pet is in safe hands and will receive the very best veterinary care.
