About Vetfix

Advanced Surgical Care

VetFix offer a mobile orthopaedic service providing advanced surgical care to animals. We work from individual practices across the south and west of Endland. Our commitment is to work with local vets to enhance the orthopaedic capabilities at a practice by providing the expertise and equipment that is required.

VetFix surgeons are RCVS recognized Advanced Practitioners in Small Animal Surgery

“The surgery he performs is always to a very high standard. Andy has excellent communication skills ensuring that our clients are fully informed and understand all the options available.”

“Our relationship with Vetfix allows us to offer a high quality referral othopaedic service, with the advantage of convenience and lower cost to the client.”

“As a vet with an interest in orthopaedics, it is great to have another vet to consult and confer with on challenging cases (digital radiographs have revolutionised our abilities to share images). It very much feels that Andy is part of our team.”

“I have used Andy as a visiting orthopaedic surgeon for the past 3 years and have been very impressed with his service. He is always available to offer advice, whether it is a second opinion on a set of radiographs or general advice on managing a case.”

“His advice, client care and surgical results have been great and he has always been quick to respond to our needs.”

“Most importantly of all we have seen uniformly excellent outcomes on our cases”

“VetFix and Natterjacks share a common philosophy, to provide exceptional value alongside the highest standard of care.”

“Professional and calm. A pleasure to work with and they are always there for advice when you need them”

“Megan had a problem with her front leg. Andy took time out to explain exactly what was up and what her options were, we are so grateful for his caring approach.”

“Clients don’t have to travel miles and pets are in a surgery they know being looked after by nurses they have known for years”

“It has been great having VetFix come in to do the orthopaedic work. They supply everything they need so we can concentrate on the patient.”

“Andy has enabled us to offer a far more comprehensive service ‘in house’ which has benefited us, our clients and the patients.”


As well as the Arthrex HD video-arthroscopy system with the tiny 1.9mm scope for joint arthroscopy we have recently invested in Fusion Implants LEAP and FLIP plating systems. The lateral epicondylar anatomic plate (LEAP) will prove useful for Spaniel and French Bulldog condylar fractures. For our feline friends the FLIP plates will improve our expertise in cat pelvic fracture treatments.
