Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons' website for animal owners


We register veterinary surgeons to practise in the UK and investigate any complaints against them.

We can remove a veterinary surgeon from the Register, suspend them or close a case with advice.

From April 2011, the same powers extend to registered veterinary nurses.

This section explains how to make a complaint, and outlines our complaints and disciplinary system.
