Training and Work Placement schemes

City Vet contributes to the development of veterinary pet health care by being involved in veterinary education.

We provide informative and practical training experience to veterinary medical, veterinary nurses and animal care students. We also facilitate work experience programmes for secondary school students. This means that we may have students observing consults during your visit.
