About Us

Learn more about us

At Simply Pets, we are passionate about what we do, which is keeping pets happy and healthy and giving honest, straightforward advice about any treatment, costs and choices required.

Our veterinary clinic is based in Gloucester and we work in partnership with the Clockhouse Veterinary Hospital. That means that we can keep our costs down by dealing with the routine procedures and smaller operations, but if your pet comes to us needing more in-depth investigation or a more complication surgery or course of treatment, we can, with your permission, refer you to Clockhouse for further treatment.

We are accredited and approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the Clockhouse Veterinary Hospital provide our out of hours’ emergency service.

Careers

Working as a vet is a very rewarding career with great job satisfaction.

However you will need to be prepared for a lot of hard work, responsibility and stress. It is important to remember that, as well as treating the animal, the owner often needs a great deal of support, so good communication skills are essential. There are several avenues to pursue, from general practice, to the army, to laboratory work! Many vets choose to specialise in their career but most vets begin in general practice. There are many different routes to follow if you do choose to specialise.

Qualifications

GCSE: You will need good GCSE grades in Maths, English and Science, usually at A or A*.

A-Level: Most universities require at least 3 A Levels from a combination of Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. These will normally be expected to be A grade. Different universities have different rules so it is important to look into the exact course requirements.

BMAT: Certain courses require you to sit a BMAT test as they have so many good applications. This is an aptitude test and the questions are often different to the GCSE or A Level type.

Being a vet is just one of the careers in a veterinary practice and you might prefer working with vets as a veterinary nurse or receptionist.
