Veterinary care like the building it’s delivered in:
Top quality, impressive and a little bit different!

Hi, I’m Dr Vanessa Waite – welcome to The Vet Station!

 

We’re a young team who provide a service that’s a little bit different to your usual veterinary practice. We’re just as skilled, just as compassionate – but also lots of fun.

 

I’m originally from a small mining valley in south Wales but I’ve been taking care of pets across London for a long time and I’m now proud to lead my fantastic team as part of the Molesey community. 

 

We aim to create an atmosphere where you and your family feel at home, where you want to pop in for a chat, a cuppa and a gossip, while being safe in the knowledge that we’ll do everything we can to help your pet to remain happy and healthy for as long as possible.

 

Our focus is on preventing illness, not putting out fires – which is why we’re proud of our Fire Plan, which includes unlimited free vet visits throughout the year so you can pop in to see an expert whenever you’re worried.

 

We’re an independent practice and we’re dedicated to being 100% honest and transparent with our clients, and if you follow us on social media you’ll know we really have nothing to hide!

Why I chose to join the Molesey community

I know the area really well. When I was setting up on my own, I cycled around south west London looking for that perfect spot. 

 

And that perfect spot was The Fire Station.

 

I’ve fallen in love with both our building – which is quirky and a bit different, just like me! – and our community.

 

If my home in Wales has one thing it’s community spirit. It’s the kind of place you can get a cuppa with your neighbours and you know everyone’s name. 

 

I’ve struggled to find somewhere that replicates that over the years – until I found Molesey. 

 

Our local shop owners are an amazing and supportive extended family. 

 

I know local pet owners are looking for the same – and it’s my promise to look after your pets with the care and compassion I would want for my own.

I’ve created a practice my nana would be proud of

My approach to veterinary work is really very simple – I aim for me and my team to be kind and to be flexible. 

 

I want to create a practice where my nana would feel comfortable, somewhere that would offer her a cuppa and a kind ear.

 

I want to build relationships with our clients where they know me and the team as friends. I’m not strict on consult times, I message my clients directly to let them know how their pets are getting on, if they want to see behind the scenes they just need to ask.

 

At the same time we provide an excellent service. 

 

I am an advanced practitioner in small animal surgery and I have a certificate in diagnostic imaging – I accept referral cases from other vets from all over London. I think it’s important to keep learning and excelling, and I expect the same from my team. 

 

I bought brand new top-of-the-range equipment so we have what we need to do our jobs to the highest standards. 

 

When a pet stays overnight, we pull up a camp bed and sleep on the floor next to them.

 

Check out our social media for insights behind the scenes at our clinic and a taste of daily life at the Vet Station – where we hope to see you and your pet soon.

Community spirit: To us it’s personal

We know our community is full of families, and we love to encourage curiosity in local children: we’re happy to answer any questions any time, and we write a fact of the day on our chalkboard outside the practice. We find that adults often learn something too!

 

For our four-legged neighbours we make sure there’s a plentiful supply of gravy bones in our treat dispenser – hand made by my dad from a table in his caravan!

 

We do everything we can to support local charities, including Broken Biscuits, with whom I had lots of fun on the Channel 4 show, The Dog Fixers!

 

If you have a local cause you think we should know about, get in touch and we’ll see how we can help.
