VVS was founded by cardiology specialist Dr Nuala Summerfield.
During her time in clinical practice, she saw first-hand the importance of collaboration between first-opinion vets and specialists as the key to improved patient outcomes. She also identified the strong desire of vets in practice to improve their skills and knowledge to optimise their patient care.
Recognising the need to make specialist veterinary healthcare more easily accessible and available Virtual Veterinary Specialists was created in 2017; introducing to the veterinary world a real-time, collaborative, digital platform. This ground-breaking service enables vets in practice to work up their own cases in-house with live-guided virtual support from one of our team of veterinary specialists.

Our goal is to support veterinary colleagues to achieve clinical excellence by bringing world-class, multidisciplinary specialists into first-opinion practices via groundbreaking technology.
