It’s official. We’re the only independent vets in West Sussex accredited with combined Hospital and Emergency and Critical Care status by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since we opened our state of the art veterinary hospital in Storrington and brought in South Downs Emergency Vets (SDEV) to deliver gold standard out of hours and emergency care. Of course, we know Arun Vet Group supported by SDEV is a dream team, and we’re thrilled to announce that the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) agrees.

The tireless commitment demonstrated by both teams has resulted in an incredible recognition by the RCVS and we could not have asked for a better first anniversary gift for our Storrington hospital, and by association, our local practices in Pulborough, Westergate and Ashington.

“You don’t compromise on your pet’s health and neither will we”

Here at Arun Vet Group, clinical excellence is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we fully participate in the voluntary industry programme that is the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme. Just as Ofsted inspects schools, the RCVS recognises excellence in veterinary practice and we’re proud to confirm we now have the most comprehensive accreditations in West Sussex.

In addition to our two vets accredited with Advanced Practitioner status – Matt and Edric are officially recognised within their different fields of Small Animal Surgery – we’ve recently achieved combined Hospital and Emergency and Critical Care accreditation.

Participation in the scheme is just one of the many ways we demonstrate our accountability to you and dedication to your pet’s health.  Remaining expertly qualified, annually trained and committed to upholding the standards regularly inspected by the RCVS, our trusted team remains focused on your piece of mind alongside continuity of care for your pet. Our state of the art equipment is regularly serviced, our medicines are sourced from the most reputable suppliers, we operate under the highest levels of hygiene and full provisions are made for 24 hour on site emergency cover.

As we’re an independent practice, we have the freedom to tailor the most appropriate treatments, adapt quickly, and always strive for the highest possible outcome. You don’t compromise on your pet’s health and neither will we.
