Welcome to our Battersea practice, located in the town centre, on the Wandsworth Road, opposite Tesco Express and adjacent to Sainsbury’s Local. Local clients often walk to the practice, parking is available on most of the side roads, and bus stops are just a short walk away.
The Battersea practice has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment, to support a busy primary care service. It boasts an operating theatre, consult rooms, the latest diagnostic equipment, comfortable kennels, and a hydrotherapy suite, with pool and water walker, to support tailored exercise, physiotherapy and rehabilitation programs. Our Battersea practice also has a a large, comfortable waiting area and a lift, suitable for people and pets, to easily access our facilities.
Continuous investment is made to better support our highly experienced team, to enable us to offer world-class general, primary, consultation, diagnostic, surgical, specialist services and the very best of care for you and your pets. For more complex cases, surgeries, specialist and 24hr emergency care, we may treat your pet in our near-by hospital in Surbiton. Complimentary transport is available, if needed.
We also have a boutique pet shop. We are a Lily's Kitchen stockist, we sell natural food and treats, including Dog Iced Treats from Billy + Margot in the warmer months, as well as a great range of toys and accessories. A percentage of all our sales goes to charity, so you help us to support very worthy causes.
We look forward to welcoming you to our open dates at the beginning of July, (please see our Battersea Facebook Page for more details), and to hearing your feedback about our services and newly refurbished facilities.

Meet The Team
Senior Veterinary Surgeon
I completed my Veterinary degree at Cambridge University in 2010, and in 2012 I joined Voo in the London Practices, after working in a mixed practice in Northumberland for a year.
I grew up in South West London and returned to the area, to work in an exclusively companion animal practice. I really enjoy being part of the community - meeting the people and their pets who make up the family. Wandsworth is particularly special, it has a real village feel, in spite of being in London and I like that people wave and stop for a chat when I’m outside of work.
As a team, we have a strong emphasis on continuity of care, so I know my patients will get the right treatment for their condition and the best possible care, irrespective of whether I do all of the treatment or refer a patient to our hospital, for specialist, 24hr emergency or hospital care.
As a senior veterinary surgeon, I ensure quality standards across the team, and train and develop each member of the team, encouraging and supporting them to reach their highest potential. I am also responsible for the more complicated cases and love seeing second opinions. I like all areas of primary care practice, as the variety of the role attracted me to the profession. My special interests are with exotic species, especially rabbits and general surgery. I really enjoy surgery and am looking forward to continuing to progress my keyhole surgery techniques.
Since qualifying as a veterinary surgeon, I have worked in private practice in Suffolk and Wiltshire, as well as gaining invaluable experience at the Blue Cross Hospital in London. I have a particular interest in internal medicine and soft tissue surgery, and I really enjoy establishing a good rapport with patients and clients, knowing that I am improving the lives of the animals I treat.
At Voo, our approach is a little different to other practices. We offer an integrated approach to veterinary medicine and pet health care, which includes, primary, specialist and 24hr emergency care. Continuity of care is really important and all our practices are supported by our nearby hospital in Surbiton, should we need to work with our specialist team, or should our patients need round the clock care, until they are well enough to return home.
At home I have a lovely cat called Esme.
Associate Veterinary Surgeon
I completed my Veterinary Medicine Degree in 2015, at Glasgow University. Prior to that I obtained a degree in Agriculture and Animal Production Science. I enjoy all aspects of general small animal practice, with a particular interest in dentistry.
The best thing about my role is being able to work with animals and people, to help patients and clients. I grew up on a farm with 2 Swiss Mountain Dogs, 2 cats, 2 donkeys and 5 horses. Having pets myself, I know how important they are to people. This is another reason why it is so important that we always aspire to give the highest level of care. This means following gold standards and a commitment to continuous learning, as well as showing the utmost understanding, love and care to all our patients.
Junior Associate Veterinary Surgeon
I am originally from the North-East and made the move to London in 2017, after graduating from the University of Cambridge. My favourite aspect of being a vet is building a bond with the animals we treat and their owners, and following their progress across their visits to the practice.
At Voo, we provide great care for the pets we treat. We place a strong focus on trying to find a specific diagnosis when an animal presents as unwell, which enables us to decide on the most effective treatment plan possible. I am interested in all areas of small animal practice, but particularly enjoy surgery, as well as meeting some of the more exotic pets we have visiting our practices.
I have a 13 year old Yorkshire Terrier named Tilly, however, as she still lives up north with my parents, I really look forward to the weekends, when I can go home to visit her for cuddles.
Svetlana Volodoko Registered Veterinary Nurse
Senior Veterinary Nurse
I qualified with a veterinary nursing diploma from Vilniaus College, Lithuania, qualified and registered with the RCVS in 2016. I have been part of the Voo team for six years now, prior to that I worked in a small animal hospital for three years.
I really enjoy the challenges and variety of my role, and the reward of seeing our patients getting better. As a Senior Veterinary Nurse, I am also responsible for quality assurance, training and development of the nursing team, to the highest of standards. I am particularly skilled in dermatologic nursing and clinical cytology, which involves a lot of microscopy work.
Voo is a family owned and run group, with a friendly team, who are always happy to see clients and are passionate in providing the very best of care for all our patients. Our primary care team works very closely with our experienced specialist team, in fields such as imaging, surgery and dermatology, so we can ensure our patients get the very best treatment, to recover as quickly as possible.
Veterinary Care Assistant
I joined Voo as a receptionist at our Surbiton Hospital at in 2015, and then took the opportunity at our Battersea Clinic, to become a Veterinary Care Assistant. The group has been so supportive of me regarding studying to further my career. I enjoy working within a fast paced environment, where the team’s priority is the health and welfare of the animals. We always provide TLC, including treats and cuddles!
I am passionate about the Battersea clinic, as-well as assisting the vets clinically on a daily basis, I support the practice in partnering with local events and charities. I am also involved with the development of the practice and pet-shop. Our clinic is unique and I appreciate client’s ideas and recommendations. I enjoy introducing new clients and pets, big or small, to our clinic.
I have a rescued Rottweiler, Ronnie, who gives excellent cuddles and is thoroughly spoiled! I also have a rabbit, Bambi, two dwarf hamsters, two budgies, two Australian White Tree Frogs, and a Yemen Chameleon called Clarence.
Customer Care Receptionist
I started working with Voo Veterinary Group in June 2017, as a Customer Services Manager. I love learning all about our patients, their various conditions and wide range of treatments.
We provide a very personal service, which focuses on getting to the root of a problem and ensuring our patients get the best possible care, to live a full and happy life. It's always amazing to see our patients getting better and watching new puppies and kittens grow into adulthood.
I have a Bichon Frise called Fizz, two tortoises and a hedgehog, who are also visitors to our Wandsworth practice! I look forward to continuing to grow with the practice and hope to welcome you and your pets at Wandsworth soon.
Customer Services Manager
I started my career in nursing and have now been in the veterinary industry for twenty two years, and in a customer service management role for the last seven. I enjoy working with animals and people, and love being able to offer clients all the help and support they need to care for their pets.
As a family run Group, we believe in providing great care for all the pets we treat. Having our own 24hr hospital and emergency team means that should our patients ever need care out of hours, we have instant access to all their notes, history, treatments and medications, to ensure they receive the care they need, without the need to refer to unfamiliar, external clinics.
I love all animals, and have a particular interest in feline health and behaviour. I have an amazing cat called Nush, who has been part of the family for many years, since she was rescued at only a day old. A kind passer-by found her in a skip, in a cardboard box and brought her into the practice. I adopted and hand reared her, and she now runs the household!
