Looking for the best vets for your pet?
Blythwood Vets has been established since 1978. A local, independent, business, which strives to offer the best care for your pet.
I have been with Blythwood for 17 years, over the last four my elderly cat, Rum, has gone from one complaint to the next, and Bushey surgery has become our second home. I can't thank Barry, Carly, Lisa and all the staff at Bushey enough, for all their skills, patience, kindness and support. Rum says thank you too - really! You are a first class veterinary practice operated by first class staff.
- Miss Klein with Rum
Best practice anywhere, thank you for caring for my gorgeous boxer babies over the last 10 years and for many more!
- Mrs Lucas with Amelie and William
We love visiting Blythwood Bushey as the staff are always pleased to see us. The vets know us well and keep us in very good health. We get all the time we need and nothing is too much trouble.
- Mrs Cockerill with Maggie & Orla
Blythwood Vets are very caring, professional and committed to ensuring all pets have the love and attention they need to live a long healthy and happy life.
- Mrs Mugridge with Gaea the Samoyed
Our new puppy Murdoch became extremely ill early in life and consulted Blythwood Vets on a friend's recommendation. Murdoch started his four day stay with you immediately and, while it was touch and go for a while, he made a complete recovery. We are so grateful to Graham and all of your wonderful team for bringing him back from the brink of death. The Sachon puppies will become a permanent fixture from now on, thank you all so very much for your help.
- Mrs Sachon with Murdoch the Basset Hound
