RSPCA Rosewell Clinic
Thursdays: 1.00pm - 2.30pm Stroud
Fridays: 1.00 pm - 2.30 pm CDCH
Once a week on a Thursday we operate a clinic next to our Lansdown office in Stroud. Once a week on a Friday we operate a clinic at our rehoming centre in Cambridge. Appointments are no more than 15 minutes and must be made in advance. Please note not all cases can be diagnosed or treated at the clinic and your pet may be referred to another vet, in these cases the charity may only be able to offer a voucher to help with treatment costs.
In order to treat your animal, full terms and conditions can be found here

Postcode catchment area:
We cover parts of the GL5, GL6, GL7, GL8, GL10, GL11 and parts of GL2 & GL12.
To make an appointment please call 01453 890014 or pop into the clinic on the above days and times. Please remember to bring £15 cash (the fee of using our clinic) and proof of your benefits (a recent letter within the last 3 months).
The Voucher Scheme policy has been designed to ensure that as many animals as possible can benefit from our limited resources. As with our clinic the scheme exists to provide people on income support with a low cost solution to their animal health problems.
The RSPCA can cover a quarter of the total vet's bill up to a maximum of £40 assuming the bill exceeds £50 and the pet owner is in receipt of one of the following:
Severe Disability Benefit
A special case referral by a veterinary surgeon or approved by the committee
You must call into the office with proof of benefit and a copy of the vet's bill. We will then ask you to complete and sign an Almoning Form before we issue you with a voucher to take to your vet. Your vet will either refund the portion being paid by the RSPCA or credit your vet account. Please note that only one voucher can be issued in any 12 month period.
These vouchers are available to those people meeting the same criteria as above. When bringing your proof of benefit and vet's bill into the office, you should also pay your donation towards the cost of the operation. These are currently set as follows:
Bitch Spay: £75.00
Dog Castrate: £55.00
Cat Spay: £35.75
Cat Castrate: £22.00
Rabbit Spay: £45.00
Rabbit Castrate: £27.00
You will then be given an RSPCA Voucher to take to your vet to advise that we will cover the full cost of the neutering operation.
