About us

Learn a little more about Taverham Vets

Taverham Vets is committed to clinical excellence and all of our vets regularly attend further training courses all over the country. Some of our vets have undertaken many years of further training and we are proud to have RCVS Certificate holders in several disciplines:

  • Small Animal Orthopaedics
  • Small Animal Surgery
  • Veterinary Radiology
  • Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging
  • Veterinary Cardiology
  • Veterinary Ophthalmology
  • Veterinary Dermatology

A modern and well equipped facility with more post-graduate “RCVS Certificate” vets than any other practice in the region.

Of all the university degree courses in the UK, competition for places at veterinary school is the most intense. Applicants must academically excel at school to be offered a university place and then complete an arduous 5-6 year course. A degree is awarded by passing the final year exams, and this then entitles an individual to enrol with the veterinary governing body (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons) and become a Member of the RCVS (denoted by the letters “MRCVS” after their name). Only an MRCVS is allowed to work as a Veterinary Surgeon in the UK.
