Welcome to The London Vet Clinic
In the heart of London, we provide primary and specialist care for companion animals and their people. We opened forty one years ago near Portman Square as the Portman Veterinary Clinic, to care for pets in Marylebone, Mayfair and Lisson Grove. Twenty-nine years ago we moved to our present premises on York Street. Today most people and pets who visit us come from St John’s Wood, Hampstead, Highgate, Camden, Kensington, Chelsea and Hammersmith. To reflect that change in 2011 the clinic name was changed to the London Veterinary Clinic.
FLEAS ARE ENJOYING THE WONDERFULLY WARM WEATHER
Fleas are now at their most numerous. If your outdoor cat or your dog is itchy, fleas are the most likely cause. Use an effective flea control product on your pet but remember to spring clean your home too, to rid it of flea eggs and nymphs. Exposure to fleas will drop markedly once we've had a hard frost.
Bruce Fogle, the principal vet, is also a writer and broadcaster. With over ten million books sold, Bruce is the world’s best selling practicing vet. For services to pets, pet owners and the veterinary profession, the British Small Animal Veterinary Association awarded Bruce Honorary Life Membership. He is co-founder and vice-chairman of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People (www.hearingdogs.org.uk) the largest charity of its kind in the world. For services to disabled people Bruce was appointed an MBE. He is the Chair of HSI, an international charity that celebrates animals and confronts cruelty worldwide (www.HSI.org).
