About Us

Riversmeet Veterinary Centre was established over 100 years ago and is a small animal, primary care practice in Staffordshire and Warwickshire, with sites in Tamworth and Atherstone. Both of our sites are based in lovely market towns just a 15-minute drive from the city of Birmingham. We have easy access to the city or the more peaceful countryside surroundings, and Birmingham airport is just a 30-minute drive away. If you are considering relocating, please do speak to us about our relocation package.

As a practice, we are proud of our closely-knit, supportive team. The majority of whom have 20 years of service! We are all motivated individuals who are passionate about high standards and the pets in our care. We are a 9 Veterinary Surgeon team with a certificate holder in Ophthalmology with three further Vets also working towards certificates including surgery and emergency and critical care (ECC). Investing in our associates and professional development is important to us and is actively encouraged here at Riversmeet Vets.

We see a varied caseload of routine and more advanced primary care services including orthopedic surgery, laparoscopic spay and laparoscopic biopsy, soft tissue surgery, eye, heart and skin treatments, arthritis management and cancer treatment. We also offer referral services in ophthalmology. Our two practices are light and spacious and have a great range of equipment available including; Digital X-ray, ultrasound at both sites, large and small endoscope, electrocautery, cryotherapy, ophthalmic loops, dental equipment, orthopaedic air-powered tools, slit lamp, tono pens and more.

We predominantly care for cats and dogs across the Staffordshire area, but we occasionally see small furries and even the odd chicken! (No two days are the same here at Riversmeet Veterinary Centre).

At Linnaeus, we are committed to supporting the physical and mental health of all our Associates. We have an amazing team of Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) across our practices and central support office in addition to a confidential Employee Assistance Programme which is available for everyone.
