Out and about – going mobile in Manchester and Cheshire

An enterprising vet has transformed ‘an ordinary van’ into a fully-equipped veterinary surgery, now operating in and around Manchester and Cheshire.



My Visit Vet, the brainchild of vet Luke Ainsworth, provides 90% of the provisions available at traditional practices, from consultations and vaccinations to operations and end-of-life care and is fully equipped with anaesthesia, x-ray, ultrasound, and lab equipment. This service, Luke said, is unique because no other mobile vet in Manchester has the capability to offer operations, x-rays, and such extensive services in the same way.

Having worked as a vet since 2005, in the UK and Australia, Luke decided to set up his own mobile vet surgery after observing the demand for home visits.

Working alongside experienced vet nurse Mel Evans and receptionist Amy Lee, the surgery (the converted Fiat Ducato cost £30,000) has been on the road for the past few months.

Luke said: “I’ve been wanting to open a mobile vet clinic for quite a few years, so it feels amazing to finally be making it a reality. I’ve seen first-hand the benefits this type of veterinary care can bring when it comes to reducing stress in patients and providing a more personal service. We put our love for pets and owners right at the heart of everything we do.”

My Visit Vet has also partnered with the out-of-hours service Vidivet to give clients free access to the app. This means pet owners can have access to a vet at any time of day or night.
