September 7, 2021
We’re delighted to announce that in July 2021 we retained the services of Roberto Diez a highly experienced Orthopaedic Veterinary Surgeon. Having an Orthopaedic Surgeon on site offers a number of benefits for clients whose pets require specialist surgical treatment. The most obvious advantage is that pets requiring these services no longer have to travel, this opens up many more treatment options for our clients and helps complete our range of in-house services.

How to access our Orthopaedic services
If you are not already a client at All Creatures, then you will need a referral from the Veterinary Surgeon in charge of your pet’s care to access Roberto’s services. This is a common and straightforward process.
Your Vet should:
- Give us a call to supply us with yours and your pet’s details.
- Send us a referral letter or full clinical history.
Once we get the referral, we will call you directly to arrange an appointment at your convenience.
If you need any more help, feel free to call us on 01603 898984 and one of our team will explain how referrals work. If appropriate they can advise you of estimated costs and make any appointments that are required.
