Dr John Rosie

  • B.V.Sc
  • M.R.C.V.S
  • Founder & Director

I was born in Liverpool and grew up on the Wirral surrounded by pets, at home. I adore animals and have done since a very small child. I obtained my B.V.Sc, Veterinary Medicine, Honours Degree from the University of Liverpool in 2004. Since qualifying as a vet I have worked in both Australia and the UK in both small animal private practice and for an internet pharmacy company.

I understand the need to provide great clinical care as well as being able to source medication competitively. I truly believe animals should be routinely seen in the home environment, and only referred to a practice for those times that treatment in the home is not suitable. I’m also married with three children.

Why did you become a vet? I have a real love of animals as well as a passion for science and technology. Growing up with a variety of pets at home allowed me to see the best – and unfortunately the worst – of vet care available to animals today.
What was your first pet? Goldie the goldfish and a ginger cat called Tom.
Favourite sport? Formula One.
Guilty pleasure? Takeaway food, especially curry and kebabs.
What’s your best advice for pet owners? Phone a vet surgery for advice if you are unsure about any aspect of your pet’s health. Trust your instinct if you feel something’s not right.
An interesting fact? I very nearly stepped on a brown snake whilst working around isolated cradle mountain in Tasmania.

Competent & friendly vet, professional, competitively priced & convenient for myself. I can highly recommend, especially if you don’t have transport or your pet doesn’t like the usual veterinary setting. 5 star! ⭐️

Mobile vet for everything that doesn't require a vet surgery. Brilliant idea and will come recommended by many ?

A very professional and friendly service, putting myself and my multi-cat household at ease. Having a house visit for 5 cats is stress free, time and energy saving for the cats and me... I am so glad I found John Rosie!
