Our methodology

PetGP was set up in 2003 as a new way for pet owners to get veterinary advice and peace of mind when they need it most.

We’re now the UK’s largest, most trusted helpline, with highly-trained Vets and Vet Nurses across the UK, and we work with a number of the country’s leading charities and insurers. It is worth checking your pet insurance policy to see if you can already access our services.

PetGP isn’t here to replace your Vet, who is essential to your pet’s health. But we can help you avoid unnecessary visits: in general, two out of every three cases we speak to don’t require an immediate trip to the vet. Speaking to us first can save you time, stress and money.

About our Vets and Nurses

All our Vets and Nurses are registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and you can get in touch with them at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year.

When you call, you’ll be answered in seconds. Our qualified Veterinary Nurses will talk you through a quick series of questions in order to understand your worries and identify any life-threatening symptoms for your pet. After that, they’ll be able to advise you about what you should do next.
