Continuity of care

One of the biggest concerns for pet owners is wanting to be able to see the same vet when they visit the clinic. At Maltman Cosham we encourage continuty of care for our patients so we can provide the best possible care for you and your pets. If you would like to see a specific vet who has been taking care of your pet we will do everything we can to arrange this for you. We do encourage having two vets that you like to see so that if one of those vets is on holiday you have a second choice.
