About us

Animal Doctor Veterinary Surgery in Ravenshead is a privately owned family run business. The surgery has been open since July 2017 and is fast building a reputation for being a caring and friendly surgery offering excellent care for your pets.

Animal Doctor’s ethos is very different to the many corporate Veterinary practices that are expanding everywhere.

The clinical director and Vet owner is Charlotte Hanson BVMS MRCVS Bsc Hons Biology.  A local girl through and through.  Charlotte graduated some 8 years ago from the prestigious Glasgow Veterinary School which also trained the world famous vet James Herriot!

Charlotte has a wealth of experience in the Veterinary World herself also looking after all creatures great and small.  After qualifying Charlotte has worked in local veterinary surgeries in and around Nottinghamshire, PDSA and the RSPCA to name a few.

More recently Charlotte has worked as a mobile vet covering hundreds of miles around Nottinghamshire in her trusty 4 x 4.  Her dream was to have her own practice and from last year this dream was realised here in Ravenshead.

The Surgery was a former Insurance brokers and has been completely redesigned as a modern state of the art Veterinary Surgery offering a wealth of services on site including X- ray, in-house blood testing and a fully equipped air conditioned operating theatre.

We are understandably very proud of our surgery and welcome anyone wishing to register their pet to come and see for yourself and meet our friendly and experienced team here at Animal Doctor.

“Lovely Vets, nice staff - small and simple surroundings, very local feel which I like - and above all have the sense that all the staff really care.."  ​
