Haringey - Arc Vet [March 2019] (2).jpg


The Practice

Arc Vets is an independent veterinary practice established by Rich in 2011.  We are not part of a corporate group or franchise and this provides us the freedom to operate the practice with our patients as top priority.  We strongly believe that by placing the patient as top prioritiy, making a living will inevitably follow.


The premises have been converted to the highest standards with digital radiography, ultrasound, keyhole laparoscopy. Hygienic safety flooring, separate (walk-in) dog & cat kennels and dedicated sterile operating theatre.

Situated 50 yards from the steps to the Muswell Hill Parkland Walk - it's less like going to the vets and more like going for a nice walk! Plus we have free of charge private parking right in front of the practice door.

Arc Vets work closely with the charities All Dogs Matter & Cats Protection, providing them with veterinary care including neuterings and non-routine surgical operations.


Key Facts

  • We try to make it so you always see Dr Will or Dr Rich we try to make sure we only occasionally employ locum vets.

  • We're an independent practice, owned by Will & Rich, not part of a corporate chain or franchise.                                                       

  • We have plenty of free parking right in front of the practice.                                                                                              

  • We have invested in modern facilities and equipment to ensure we provide the highest quality care possible. There's not much we can't do here at the Arc but we have close links with nearby referral facilities If required.                                                      

  • Both Rich and Will qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London.                                                                                            

  • Our business model is based on charging appropriately for our professional time and expertise and not from selling products etc.

We sell them at the price we buy them from our wholesaler plus VAT and a prescription medicine dispensing fee. If you can find it cheaper elsewhere we'll happily write you a prescription.                                                                                      

  • We're one of the few practices in the UK to perform key-hole surgeries, a less invasive less painful way of neutering your pet.
