We love Guinea Pigs

There are half a million pet guinea pigs in the UK and until now no guinea pig specific vet. 

Guinea pigs deserve veterinary care that treats them as the lovable, individual pets they are and not just a replaceable small furry.

The Guinea Pig Vet has over 13 years of experience and knowledge treating guinea pigs. We will provide a friendly, tailored service from a vet who is passionate about guinea pigs.

We are an independent consultancy working in partnership with Derwent Valley Vets who are one of the few remaining private practices in the area. Keeping the customer and their pets at the heart of our services.
