Our Facility

The team at The British Veterinary Centre is dedicated to providing pets in the United Arab Emirates with the very best of veterinary care and is the best-equipped companion animal practice in the Middle East. We specialise in companion animal medicine and surgery and have special interests in orthopaedics, diagnostic imaging and exotic species. A unique feature of the BVC is the 24 hour veterinary nursing – we feel when your pet is ill you want to have the peace of mind that someone is looking after them – even in the night.

Our transport section is part of IPATA, the International Pet and Animal Transportation Association and handles pet travel arrangements to and from the United Arab Emirates. We have been doing the import and export of pets for over 15 years and have a vast database of experience. If you are going to trust your pets transport to us you can be sure that you can have the peace of mind that comes from us having all those years of experience and literally thousands of happy successful pet shipments all over the world.

Dog training is available in conjunction with our special friend and client Sonja Gehlsen. Pet behaviour is sometimes of concern and Sonja offer professional behavioural assessments and treatment plans for a wide range of dog and cat behaviour problems. We give extra attention to new puppies to reduce the chances of behavioural problems developing in the first place, and Sonja is able to offer puppy-training classes with options for individual home sessions if desired.

Our cat boarding unit is small and personal but the condo boarding cages are spacious and multilevel. Individual attention is easily provided in this environment and boarders are treated as family pets. An outdoor run is a unique feature that at times of the year when the weather allows, can make a boarders life so much more pleasant to have the run of. Places are limited as so many of our boarders are regulars.

Our grooming room is fully equipped with the latest dryer technology from the USA. Our groomer is a professional full time pet groomer. He has been with us for more than four years and has an excellent reputation as supported by the returning regular customers for his services.

We offer dog boarding in house for elderly patients. For the fit, large and active we recommend the kennels owned by Shk Tahnoon’s Royal Group called the AVC boarding kennels in the industrial zone of Mussafa about 30minutes from the city. We can arrange both bookings and transport for you.

The range and quality of services offered at the British Veterinary Centre is second to none in the Middle East and ensures that your pet is properly cared for throughout his stay in the United Arab Emirates
