The Arc philosophy
Our aim is to be the antidote to the increasing number of corporate vet groups and franchises that are set to make up a large part of the UK veterinary market. Many vets that appear independent are often owned by a large group.
We're an independent practice, owned by Will and Rich, combining traditional values with modern techniques and facilities. We put your pet's health at the heart of everything we do and take great pride in providing expert, compassionate care to all our patients.
We try to make sure that you always see either Will or Rich and we promise we won't ever pressure you into performing unnecessary tests or treatments. We sell all medications at cost price with no mark-up and help out the local charities All Dogs Matter & Cats Protection with pro-bono consultations and surgeries.
Word of mouth reccomendations from happy customers has been our best marketing tool and helped us grow to the size we are today. For more facts about the practice click here.
Dr Richard Harper & Dr Will Woodley
Dr Richard Harper
Rich graduated from the Royal Vet College and has also undertaken a Masters Degree in Clinical Oncology so he can provide a greater level of expertise particularly to animals suffering from cancer.
Richard has recently returned from sabbatical in Latvia where his wife Sarah was busy running the Embassy. They welcomed their daughter Evie into the family this March who joins big brothers Billy (Human), Joey (Canine) and Duke (Feline).
Dr Will Woodley
Will is a graduate of the prestigious Royal Veterinary College and joined the partnership in early 2015 to help Rich out as the practice became busier. Will has worked in various practices throughout the UK including mixed practice (cows/horses/sheep/cats/ dogs) and small animal hospitals.
Will's interest is in all aspects of veterinary medicine as well as being one of the few vets currently performing veterinary key-hole surgery.
Our visiting advanced practitioner Dr James Creasey is a Small Animal Surgery certificate holder.
and can offer advanced surgical techniques on site with out the need for referral to distant hospitals. This also helps to keep the costs down.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY
SIOBHAIN & CHAOS
For the first time we have found a truly wonderful vet in Richard...he looks after our Black Lab ,"Chaos" beautifully. He came highly recommended by our dog walkers, he is very patient ( with us!!)...and has a fantastic way with the dog. We have never felt rushed when we are in there..he gives honest, straightforward advice, prices are very reasonable for a North London vet...he doesn't patronise. He is not at all pushy , unlike a number of vets , and doesn't push expensive medication , procedures or treatment. He is a real find and we hope that he does very well.he deserves it.
BECKY & HENRY
"I highly recommend Richard and his team to any pet owner seeking an independent vet to care for their animal. Professional, practical advice without an outrageous bill at the end of it all and no hard sell on products or services. Just brilliant, old-fashioned, quality service!”
KAT & ZENO
My precious 2 year old French bulldog Zeno was run over by a van about 30 metres from Arc Vet. By an absolute miracle, Will from Arc had witnessed the incident and instantly ran to Zeno, scooped him up and provided him immediately with oxygen and a drip. All his injuries were to his face and head which made it unclear on the internal damage that Zeno may have suffered. I know that Will and the teams immediate action and care had absolutely saved Zeno's life and prevented him from anything more serious than a split chin, and cuts to his head and mouth. I have had pets all my life and have visited plenty of veterinary practices. Since the incident, I now take Zeno to Arc Vet because they DID save his life and are by far the most friendly, caring, professional and highly skilled veterinary team I have ever come across.
I cannot thank Will and the Arc team enough!
