Three types of life-changing veterinary care

From vets and nurses to care assistants and surgeons, everyone who works at our animal hospitals is dedicated to making sure that animals in need get the best possible care - whether that's life-saving surgery or a simple vaccination.

Emergency care

When animals' lives are at risk, there's not a moment to spare. Staff at our RSPCA animal hospitals have to be ready to act fast to save the lives of injured or abandoned animals, who are often brought in with very little warning.

Basic care

Vets at our RSPCA animal hospitals also carry out basic procedures such as neutering, microchipping and vaccinations. These can help make sure every animal we rescue has the healthiest and happiest life possible.

Low-cost care

For pet owners in need, we also offer low-cost veterinary care. We can't help everyone though, so we try to provide for pet owners who need our help the most.
