Optivet Referrals is Europe's leader in small animal and equine specialist-led veterinary ophthalmology referrals - we have a large hospital in Hampshire and satellite services in five locations around the U.K. - more to emerge over the coming years.

At our Hampshire hospital, we also provide high level small animal specialist-led surgery (orthopaedic / soft tissue), internal medicine, cardiology, pain management and behavioural referrals supported by specialist-led anaesthesia.

We remain independent, aligned around a set of strong core values which enable us to deliver personalised care, flexible scheduling, and strong client / patient relationships - in our view, creating a better experience for both you and your beloved pet. 

We do not set any financial targets or pay commission to any of our clinicians - we truly treat patients as if they are our own pets and do not carry out any unnecessary diagnostics or treatments.

We have no ownership or reward system involving your vet. They choose us based on the quality of our service and not due to any financial or management pressure.  

We are transparent about our fees, allowing you to make informed decisions about your pet's care. You will receive detailed cost breakdowns, so you know exactly what you're paying for and can budget accordingly. Our aim is to create tailored treatment plans for your pet's specific conditions and concerns. 

If you are insured, we offer direct claims which will help your cash flow.

We would love to help you and your pet - please feel free to contact us at any time.
