Client satisfaction

A modern facility with advanced procedures spearheaded by 'supervet' who offer hope and skills within the Bournemouth area.

Mrs Quins

Always really friendly staff who clearly care a lot about the animals and the owners! They couldn't have been more helpful whenever my pet has been unwell or in an accident, treating them as if they were their own pet.

Mrs Hall

I can t recommend Stokewood Vets enough - the team are friendly and welcoming and there is no doubt at all that they have your pets best interests at heart - I love that they are an independent practice and not a corporate with targets to meet and a revolving door of vets - it's great that you know who you are going to be seeing and that your vet knows your pet - They are super compassionate and knowledgeable and they have have always fitted us in, quick appointments and you never feel rushed or ignored.

Mr Lambert

Phenomenal amazing caring staff. Couldn't and wouldn't go anywhere else. Been coming here for 27 years as I know they love my fur babies as much as i do. They go above and beyond their duties not only for the animals but for the carers too.

Mrs Lee

Meet our wonderful team

Our veterinary surgeons have undertaken advanced training and are able to treat more complicated cases. They are happy to receive referrals in areas such as internal medicine, cardiology, orthopaedic, and soft tissue surgery. We invest heavily in the ongoing training of all our staff, meaning you can rest assured that your pet will be in good hands.

Rosanna has a passion for veterinary education and has obtained post graduate certificates in surgery and dermatology.

From the age of two Rosanna knew beyond any doubt that she wanted to be a vet. The local doctor gave her a stethoscope and she began examining  the local animals. Her childhood home was always packed with pets as her family bred puppies for  charities ( eg  Guide Dogs, Blind association, Puppy walking )

Rossana  has more than 30 years of experience in the veterinary profession and we are very lucky to have her share her expertise at Stokewood Vets . This means that our  clients can benefit from more veterinary expertise!

Rosanna designs and sews her own scrubs for surgeries.

When not working she enjoys walking miles with her beloved Collie. In her spare time Rossana loves cycling and swimming , but most of all she loves her dog  and.. her children and husband !
