What are you searching for?


Every veterinary practice is under pressure to compete more effectively and profitably at a time of growing competition.

Whether you are a veterinary practice on the high street, practising in the country or specialising in large or exotic animals, our team of veterinary accountants and advisers have the knowledge of the veterinary sector that can help you.

Understanding you

To give you the best accountancy advice, we have over 25 years' experience in the veterinary sector and an understanding of every type of practice. 

Practice valuations, sales and purchases are where we excel and can offer you a quality service. In the past three years we have advised on the sale and purchase of veterinary practices in excess of £250m.

Where many vets accountancy firms offer conventional compliance based services, we go far beyond and can help you get to grips with:
  • Fundamental issues of practice management
  • Improving your service
  • Increasing your profits
  • Reducing your costs

Making a difference

To ensure you are getting the most up-to-date service and advice, we have regular contact with veterinary associations to enable us to anticipate developments in veterinary practice. 

In order to give you access to our wealth of information, we hold seminars on topical issues. We are also members of SPVS and VMG.

    We are very happy with the advice that we have always received which is extremely valuable to us in the running of our business.

    Walpole & Bingham Ltd
  • " "

    Just a quick note to thank you very much for a thoroughly professional and constructive meeting. It was just the service we had hoped to receive.

  • " "

    All of the staff I have dealt with have been friendly, approachable and professional.

  • " "

    Pro-active, knowledgeable and quietly supportive would be my summary of Hazlewoods. We first joined the Hazlewoods family 4 years ago, on the back of a personal recommendation, primarily for audit purposes, but they soon turned out to be so much more...their staff are personable, comfortingly knowledgeable and always willing to help. Their straight, no nonsense approach to all matters be they personal, audit or corporate makes dealing with them easy and never a chore.

  • " "

    The professionalism of their team, their knowledge of the industry, the ease of accessibility to any of the team on a day to day basis and the continuity of Hazlewoods personnel during the many projects we have undertaken together have been invaluable to us over the last six years.

  • " "

    As an independent Practioner, making a decision to sell one’s Practice is a big enough decision in its own right. I am very pleased that I appointed Hazlewoods to act as my sales advisor as the service I received was exceptional. They went beyond what is expected.

    Mr Haydn Sharratt

    They have also undertaken benchmarking and given us advice on our prices and pay scale.
