Welcome to Riverside Vets Benfleet
We are an independent, local vet practice providing health care to dogs, cats, and small furries.
Our local vet surgery was founded in 1975 by, Mr Andrew Deans BVetMed, along with his colleague, Mr Robert Howell BVetMed when it was known as the Riverside Veterinary Group. A few of our team have been working in the practice for over 30 years and have acquired considerable experience tending to sick and injured pets. We have chosen to stay independent and small to provide a more personal service and ensure individual care for your pet.
You’ll find our local vet practice at the bottom of Bread and Cheese Hill in Benfleet, we are just a few doors along from the Maharaja Restaurant.
