Rosslyn Veterinary Centre’s original practice was based at 464 Linthorpe Road and was established around 1955, moving to “Eglantine Villa” on The Crescent around four to five years later. Permission was granted to use a downstairs room of the villa for consultations only, so the old coach house and stable block at the back of the villa had to be transformed to create a working practice and allow 24-hour provision for patients, from this Rosslyn Veterinary Centre became one of the first practices to gain recognised hospital status from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). After many years Eglantine Villa and part of its ground were sold to make way for a nursing home, and sadly the villa was demolished in the late 1980’s. Then around 1990 we became an Accredited Small Animal Practice instead, retaining that status to this day.
Rosslyn Vets is also a member of the International Cat Care organisation and has achieved the Cat Friendly Clinic Silver Award; this is awarded to practices that are committed to creating a stress free environment for our feline friends.
Rosslyn Vets is a Tier 2 training practice encouraging student nurses to reach their goal of becoming qualified veterinary nurses.
