Here at Wildbore Vetstop we are a Tier 3 RCVS veterinary hospital based in Worksop, and provide high standards of care and although our Out of Hours (OOH’s) service is covered by Vets Now, we offer fantastic 24-hour inpatient care. We’re also a friendly bunch of highly skilled professionals, who put the health and wellbeing of pets first.                                                                       
We are a well-equipped practice with ultrasound, in-house lab, CT scanner and more. We are recognised by International Cat Care as a Gold Level Cat-Friendly Clinic for the special care and consideration we give to our feline patients.

We have a large Vet team with a variety of service & experience levels including certificate holders in medicine, surgery, feline medicine and more. We are also supported by a wonderful nursing & front of house team. Retention and the well-being of our team is very important to us and we are delighted that some of our team members have been part of Wildbore Vetstop for over 25 years. We are a supportive team who like to share our knowledge and discuss clinical cases. We all have our own professional interests, and we are happy to support certificates where possible. We could also offer a fantastic role for an all-round GP vet who enjoys case continuity and building great rapport with clients. We have a fantastic client base some of whom have been returning to us for many years.

Here at Wildbore Vetstop we predominantly care for small animals and do have a growing rabbit caseload. We see a good mixture of routine and advance surgeries/consultations.

We are close to the peak district and Clumber park too. If you prefer to explore the local cities Sheffield is on our doorstep with lots to offer day and night and Nottingham & Doncaster are also easily accessible. Leeds/Bradford & Doncaster/Sheffield airport are both a short drive away.
