What can we do for your pet?


If your pet needs to see the vet please call your local branch & the receptionist will make an apppointment for your. All consultations with the vet are by appointment except in a genuine emergency. A normal initial consultation is for 20 minutes. If you have more than one pet that needs to be seen please inform the receptionist at the time of making the appointment so that they can schedule an adequate amount of time for you.

In most cases treatment can be given at the time of the consultation. If tests or an operation is needed the vet will be able to discuss this with you along with the possible costs.


At Fivelands we have some of the most comprehensive and up to date equipment in a non-referral veterinary practice in the West Midlands, along with the expertise to match.

We are able to perform a wide range of surgical procedures from routine neutering, suturing wounds to more complicated surgery such as fracture repair, lung lobe removal, ear surgery (TECA), cruciate ligament repair, MMP surgery, portosystemic shunt (PSS) diagnosis & surgery, eyelid correction (entropion & ectropion), corneal ulcer surgery, facelifts, dental extractions, thyroid gland removal, laparoscopic biopsy and many more. Please make an appointment to discuss with one of the vets if you think your pet needs surgery.

Occasionally we may feel it is appropriate for your pet’s surgery to be performed by a specialist and will recommend referral. If you are not able to afford specialist fees, we may still be able to perform the surgery ourselves.

In all cases we aim to give an accurate estimate of the likely costs, and the nature of the operation along with potential complications.

Medical Conditions

We are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions, including thyroid disease, kidney problems, difficult skin cases, allergies (including allergy testing) and even provide cancer treatment with chemotherapy at the practice. For those patients who require more intensive treatment we have facilities to keep pets in the main surgery at Moseley overnight.

One of the vets, Christian Hughes, has an interest in behaviour, eye problems and in acupuncture and will see patients either current patients or on a referral basis from other practices for acupunture.

Kate Ballard has a particular interest in feline medicine and is an advanced veterinary practitioner in this area. She enjoys managing chronic conditions in our feline patients such as kidney disease, hyperthyroidism and high blood pressure.

We also can provide behaviour advice and recommendations to suitably qualified and experienced pet behaviourists.

In-Patient Care

If your pet needs tests, more involved treatment or an operation  you may need to leave him/her with us. Most pets are perfectly happy in our care, despite many owners concerns at leaving them in a strange place. Our nurses do a great job of looking after the in-patients & caring for them in our dog & cat wards, making sure they are comfortable and well-looked after. Special diets/ food requests can normally be catered for.

Our hospitalisation facilities are clean, bright, air conditioned, with separate dog & cat wards. The dog ward has roomy walk-in cages with comfy padded beds, and cat friendly cages in the cat ward with vetbed bedding.

A dedicated nurse is in charge of the hospitalised patients each day, where care and treatment of in-patients is supervised by one of our experienced vets, Angharad Thomas. We keep owners updated with a daily phone call at the very least if their pet is being kept in our practice overnight.

We are happy for you to come and visit your pet in our hospital at Moseley if they are kept in for longer than 24 hours- please telephone the hospital nurse to arrange this on 0121 449 3716.
