Northwest Surgeons has rebranded as Northwest Veterinary Specialists (NWVS), following significant investment into facilities and people.

The referral centre, which joined the Pets at Home Specialist Division in April 2015, recently extended the floor space at its base in Cheshire, to support the major expansion of the services being offered.


logoNWVS hospital manager Liz Cousins said: “The success of NWVS is down to the dedication of our highly skilled clinical, nursing and support teams.

“Our clinicians are well respected specialists in their chosen disciplines and it’s fantastic to be able to offer new services to pets and first opinion vets.

“The hospital is home to 88 colleagues and the change of name now reflects the growth and dedication by everyone here at NWVS since opening in 2002.”
