Our story

Our story began in 2017, when Southfields Veterinary Specialists became part of the Linnaeus Group. Since then, we have grown to 14 multi-disciplinary services, still maintaining focus on the advanced cancer care treatments for which we have a widely acknowledged first-class reputation.

Today, our team encompasses more than 100 Specialist Veterinary clinicians, registered veterinary nurses and veterinary professionals and provides care for over 3,000 patients every year.

Our story continues with our new hospital that opened in 2022; an exciting phase in our ongoing commitment to improving the depth and breadth of what we do to serve patients and pet owners – providing the best and most advanced veterinary care and technology worldwide.

Our dog Ruby has been under their care for several years on and off with an immune disorder that has been life-threatening at times.
