Things have changed recently, and so have we.
Here at Village Vets, we’ve had to quickly adapt in order to continue offering our amazing community our gold-standard veterinary care.
Restrictions have been – and continue to be – hard on all of us in different ways. We usually have such busy lives with families, work, chores, and regular commitments all vying for our time. Every day is a rush to the finish. But during lockdown, we found that:
- It IS possible to still serve our clients – and for us to be served by businesses we rely on too – without having to rush around
- Life CAN be easier, less fraught, and more considered
- SUBSCRIPTION based services make everything easier and more predictable – budgeting, knowing what services are available to you and consistent reassurance that you have what you need, when you need it
We still want to be who we are and what we feel makes us great…
A community-focussed vet practice who’s aim is to keep your pet well through regular contact, and a solid preventative healthcare approach to life
… and don’t want to lose sight of that even when things are hard.
By paying small equal monthly amounts throughout the year, you and your pet will benefit from an easier, more financially predictable life that gives you total reassurance that your pet will stay as healthy and happy as possible. You can come in and see us whenever you need to with UNLIMITED consults with a vet included.
It’s as important to us as it is to you that we know your pet well and can pick up on potentially tricky conditions early. Regular consults can save your pet pain from undetected conditions, and lead to a longer and happier pain-free life. Long-term health conditions aren’t always fully covered by your insurance either, so nipping it in the bud is definitely the best way forward.
As a VIP, you will benefit from:
VIDEO VET CONSULTS
As well as all the other benefits including unlimited anal gland expression for your dog, unlimited nail clips, discounts on other key preventative healthcare services and 20% discount on pet food.
We’d do anything for our pets, wouldn’t we?
Whether it’s the fun of watching a young pet playfully exploring the world around them or the comfort of an old friend constantly by your side or asleep on your lap – the companionship our pets give us is priceless.
But because your faithful friends can’t tell you when they’re feeling unwell – and sometimes you can’t see when there’s anything wrong either – you want reassurance…
✔︎ Reassurance that, as a responsible pet owner, you’re making the right choices to give you and your pet a long and happy life together,
✔︎ Reassurance that regular check-ups and early detection of any potential problems give the best chance of a positive outcome,
✔︎ Reassurance that if something doesn’t seem quite right (maybe your pet seems a little under the weather?) that you can see a vet any time, just to be sure that it’s nothing more serious.
We’re pet owners too – so we understand how this feels.
That’s why, when we re-designed our healthcare plan, we decided that complete peace-of-mind was the most important priority.
For that reason, as well as receiving a wide range of benefits, regular checks and protection against parasites when you join our VIP Club – you’ll also benefit from unlimited consultations* with a vet or a veterinary nurse. You can see one of our experts, as often as you need throughout the year, at no extra charge.
What better way to give your pet the very best opportunity

The difference between VIP Club membership and pet insurance, and why you need both.
Our VIP Club focuses on preventative healthcare and has been carefully designed to help your pet have a healthy, happy life.
Pet insurance, on the other hand, provides financial cover for unforeseen illness and accidents – although it is important to note that the level of cover provided by different insurers / policies can vary enormously.
Preventative healthcare includes vaccinations, parasite prevention, regular health checks and other services intended to prevent illness or to detect potential issues before your pet suffers any discomfort.
Pet insurance covers unexpected events, similar to a car insurance policy.
Unlike car insurance, however, 90% of pet insurance claims are for illness as opposed to accident†. Data also shows you are more likely to claim on your pet insurance than your car or household insurance††.
As a VIP Club member, your pet will be regularly examined by one of our vets or veterinary nurses.
This is why we strongly recommend that responsible pet owners combine VIP Club membership with a pet insurance policy.
