Our Story

Ellie and Michael first met as colleagues working at RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital, treating and rehoming London's stray dogs and cats, exotics and wildlife. They immediately bonded over their shared values for animal welfare and passion for surgery.

 

Over time, they created a vision to one day have their own independent veterinary clinic, where they could provide an excellent level of care to their patients in a friendly and familiar environment. Their dream is now a reality, with Vets on the Common treating London's pets with love, compassion, trust and expertise.

 

We're here for your pets in their time of need and throughout their long, joyful lives.
