Owner Referrals



Anita is one of the foremost skin specialists for pets in private practice in the UK. She is one of only 25 dermatologists recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a specialist in this field. Her 18 years of general practice, before becoming a specialist in 2003, give her enormous breadth of knowledge of and sympathy for, your pet's problems.

Anita is a referral vet, so If you have a sick pet, with a skin problem, and would like to consult Anita, please ask your vet to refer you.

You can ask your vet to make an appointment for you at either of the following clinics:
