The Pet Vet is a state-of-the-art veterinary practice, led by a team that is committed to providing the highest standards of patient care and customer service. The Pet Vet has some of the most advanced CT scanning equipment available in veterinary facilities in the UK. Combining a highly skilled in-house surgical team and a partnership with Vet-CT, global leaders in CT and MRI interpretation, makes for a high quality, and efficient diagnostic imaging service; and this enables us to provide better healthcare for the pets in our region.
The Pet Vet has a 128-slice CT scanner; this means that for every revolution of the x-ray tube head, up to 128 slices of imaging information are obtained. Each slice can be varied in thickness and can be as little as half a millimetre in width.
Using a 128-slice scanner with a fast rotation speed, a large amount of information can be obtained in just a few seconds. It also means that very detailed information about certain parts of the body can be obtained in a way that is unparalleled by any other imaging modality or with CT scanners that take less slices in the imaging process.

Hugo is assisted by our Lead Surgical Nurse, Holly Wheelhouse. Holly manages the preparation of our orthopaedic and soft tissue procedures, oversees the patient’s recovery until they are discharged, and acts as first point of contact for your customers whilst their pet is in our care.
We want to make this as easy as possible for you, your customer and your patient.
We will happily discuss your case with you before referral; we love to share our knowledge and experience and are available to discuss cases and provide assistance with your queries. You can also refer your patients directly.
Whatever your requirements, please contact our Rotherham surgery team:
with the clinical history and customer contact details.
Once we have received your referral request, we will contact your customer to provide an estimate for the referral and to book the appointment.
After the appointment, your patient will be transferred back to your care and a report will be provided to you and your customer.
If a follow-up appointment at The Pet Vet is required eg to assess the progress after surgery, an updated report will be provided.
