Welcome to

Rutland House Vets

The team would like to welcome you and thank you for visiting the Rutland House Veterinary Hospital website and for giving us the opportunity to care for your pets. 

Based in St.Helens, Merseyside we have been serving the community's pets for over 50years. We are a Veterinary Hospital offering care to patients not only locally as our Referral Service treats patients nationally

We are happy to help you locally with any queries, advice or support on veterinary services that you may require. Our fully qualified veterinary and nursing staff offer the highest level of medical and surgical skills from our Veterinary Hospital and Referral Centre in St.Helens so you can be assured that your pet will always be well cared for.

We have local branch surgeries for your convenience and late night/weekend opening times to help accommodate your busy lives.

Our appointments are for 15 minutes as standard (50% more than other vets), as we believe this provides better quality of care & understanding

Yours sincerely
The Team at Rutland House
