History of BVH

Bryanston Veterinary Hospital is a purpose built veterinary facility that opened its doors in November 1970. Dr’s Bruce and Craig Irvine-Smith were the founding veterinarians in a building designed by their father Charles Irvine-Smith.

Over the years the practice grew steadily with many veterinarians joining the practice gaining valuable experience before moving on after variable periods of time.

As the business grew exponentially we moved to be an 24-hour emergency facility, we pride ourselves on offering the best possible veterinary care available.

At present BVH has 12 veterinarians of whom three are specialist surgeons, one internal medicine specialist and twelve veterinary nurses, nine kennel assistants, we also have a specialist anesthetist present three days per week.
