The Specialists The Specialists London’s pet owners now have Europe’s largest private specialist veterinary practice right on their doorstep. Davies Veterinary Specialists (DVS) has brought its top vets to the heart of the town with the launch of Davies London, at the premises of the centrally located Hyde Park Veterinary Centre on Connaught St W2. Despite the highest density of companion animal ownership in the UK, Londoners have until now had to travel long distances for specialist veterinary care. Davies London now provides convenient access to internationally renowned veterinary specialists, right in the centre of London. Davies Veterinary Specialists employs 40 veterinary surgeons, 23 of them RCVS Recognised Specialists and more than 50 nurses. The main hospital, based in Bedfordshire, has sophisticated diagnostic, surgical and treatment facilities and offers integrated multi-disciplinary care. Clive Elwood, Managing Director of DVS, explains: “We believe that pet owners should have easy access to the top veterinary specialists in the country. We are now bringing a team of specialists offering consultations in medicine, cardiology, ultrasonography, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery to Davies London. This will make it much easier for London vets to offer their clients a convenient referral service, with full access to state-of-the-art facilities.” Carol Madeley, from Belgravia, is one of many London pet owners who is thrilled that she now has easy access to a top veterinary referral centre in central London. When her Welsh Springer Spaniel Rascal contracted meningitis last year and needed life-saving treatment, she initially needed to travel more than 50 miles to see a specialist. She said: “Rascal is still on vet-administered medication and regular check-ups from her specialist but from now on it’s no longer going to be a three hour round trip. Instead it’ll be a short walk away for her to receive the best possible treatment from some of the most highly qualified vets in Europe.” The Hyde Park Veterinary Centre is a well-known and long-established central London veterinary clinic. Recently expanded and completely refurbished, the clinic has invested heavily in the latest diagnostic and treatment facilities for the clinical care and treatment of London's pets. Head vet Andrew Prentis said: "We are all very excited about the collaboration with Davies: this new local access to top level specialists is really going to help London's vets offer their clients the very best in veterinary care at all times." Davies London is at the Hyde Park Veterinary Centre, 61-63 Connaught St, London W2 2AE. To find out more call 0207 535 0444 or visit
