Veterinary Hospital Status

In addition, a number of Veterinary Hospitals are approved by the BSAVA. The name “Veterinary Hospital” can be used only by those practices that conform to standards that are the same as those used by the BSAVA, but with additional requirements such as the provision of high quality hospitalisation facilities and on-site 24 hour nursing care. All Veterinary Hospitals are inspected by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to ensure that they meet these standards. These Veterinary Hospitals may then apply to be included under the BSAVA Practice Standards Scheme.
