Welcome to

Dick White Referrals

Dick White Referrals (DWR) is one of the largest specialist multi-disciplinary veterinary referral centres in Europe, offering outstanding levels of clinical care in state-of-the-art facilities.

In 2003, DWR was one of the UK’s first veterinary referral hospitals, and our initial aim still remains; to provide the best possible care and treatment for pets and the highest levels of service to pet owners and referring veterinary practice teams.

We are proud to be home to a team of highly qualified colleagues across the widest range of clinical disciplines supported by incredible non-clinical teams.
