Today we’d like to shine a spotlight on the fantastic work done by one of our Buysure partners, StreetVet.
StreetVet is an amazing, multi award winning RCVS registered practice who deliver completely free care and service to the homeless and their dogs on the streets of London, Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Cambridge, Plymouth, Cornwall and Glasgow to name just a few of their locations.
Homelessness is a growing problem in the UK, and we all know how strong the bond between an owner and their pet is, especially when, for some people, their pet is all they have.
Living on the streets makes it immensely difficult to access the necessary vet care these dogs desperately need and deserve. This is why StreetVet formed a team of dedicated vet professionals to provide health checks and vaccinations, preventative healthcare, surgery, daily essentials, prescriptions and follow up treatment for homeless owners and their dog. Not only this, they also educate and inform owners about key elements required to care for their pet.
There are many ways you can help support StreetVet. From donating some money, to purchasing items on their Amazon Wishlist, or notifying them of a dog and owner in need. Anything spared provides great support for this cause.
Here at Vetsure, we are fortunate to work closely with a wide variety of forward-thinking veterinary practices. We are particularly proud to support StreetVet and other independent practices in many areas of business through our Buysure for Vets Buying Group network. In line with our ethos we’re pleased to help charities financially and this service allows StreetVet to treat more animals in need. Buysure for Vets gives all our members significant buying power, which definitely comes in handy for incredible charities just like StreetVet.
If you are a qualified vet or veterinary nurse and want to become a part of StreetVet’s inspirational and growing team, you can apply here. You can also see if the StreetVet team is local to your area.
Cheesy but true, I love that I can email a query over and it is dealt with straight away (or as soon as the office is open if I have emailed over the weekend). Everyone I speak to (and email) is so cheerful – just a pleasure to deal with – this certainly makes you stand head and shoulders above the rest.

The Vetsure approach demonstrates a clear understanding of modern veterinary practice from both a business and clinical perspective… I believe that this model will shape the future of pet insurance in the UK.

Love that you can just pick up the phone and speak to and friendly, helpful and knowledgeable person! It’s great!

Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!

Great help with the new grad scheme — thanks to all staff.
