Patient transport service

Free* transport service

Did you know at VSOS – Advanced Treatment Centre, we offer a pick-up and drop-off service for your pet from your local vet hospital?

This means that we will pick up your pet from your local vet and drop them off when they have recovered, or are continuing treatment with your vet.

This patient service is led by our wonderful VSOS team member Claudine La Cava who will drive our customised patient transport vehicle.
