Continuity of Care

One of the biggest concerns for pet owners is wanting to be able to see the same vet when they visit the clinic. At Maltman Cosham we encourage continuty of care for our patients so we can provide the best possible care for you and your pets.

If you would like to see a specific vet who has been taking care of your pet we will do everything we can to arrange this for you. We do encourage having two vets that you like to see so that if one of those vets is on holiday you have a second choice.

Our Aim

Our team of Veterinary Surgeons, Veterinary Nurses and Receptionists work extremely hard to make every visit to Maltman Cosham Veterinary Clinic as easy as possible for you and your pet. We want both you and your pet to feel relaxed and welcome when you visit so please let us know if we can do anything to ensure this is the case for you and your pet.
