Welcome to Arthurs Veterinary Specialists

We are an independently owned orthopaedic surgical referral practice, set-up and run by a friendly local specialist orthopaedic surgeon with over 20 years’ experience working in the largest specialist clinics and veterinary teaching hospitals in the UK.

Our aims are:

  • To offer the best quality orthopaedic service and surgery for dogs and cats
  • To always be friendly, compassionate and caring
  • To be honest and make recommendations on what your pet needs. We never recommend a procedure we do not believe in, or would not do for our own cat or dog.
  • To aim to have the lowest complication rate possible
  • To provide clear, concise and timely discharge paperwork to the owner and referring veterinary surgeon
  • To ensure colleagues are valued and treated in a professional and respectful manner.

Arthurs Veterinary Specialists is hosted at Towcester Veterinary Centre.

Towcester Veterinary Centre has a number of excellent features including:

  • A large and spacious operating theatre ideal for complex orthopaedic surgery
  • 24 hours on site care including overnight nursing care
  • Very easy access to major routes such as the M1, M40, A5, A43 and A45

We offer weekday appointments at Towcester Veterinary Centre. We see cases on a pre-agreed appointment basis only. All appointments are on a referral only basis i.e. your own veterinary surgeon needs to refer your pet to us for an orthopaedic assessment and treatment. Please ask your veterinary surgeon for a referral to Arthurs Veterinary Specialists.

WHat Our Clients Say

I really cannot praise Gareth Arthurs and his team at Arthurs Orthopaedics enough. After the cruciate ligament ruptured in my dog Molly's right leg (her left left ruptured about 18 months ago), I was distraught. As soon as I met Gareth I knew that she was in the best possible hands. He is obviously a top expert in his field. He explained in depth what he needed to do and I realised that with the type of surgery she required, the utmost precision was required for the surgery to be successful. Molly is now about 10 weeks into her post op period and is doing so well. I can't explain in words what a relief it has been to see Molly go from strength to strength. This is all down to Gareth. Thank you again so much.

Also need to praise Gareth's team-they were always so friendly, cheerful, helpful and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
Well done to you all! I would not hesitate to return to Gareth and his team if the need arose.

– Elaine Davies

We were first referred to Gareth several year ago when bilateral elbow dysplasia was diagnosed in my young Labrador. He was so kind & helpful to this first time dog owner who had no clue of the journey ahead and the difficulties we would face.

We've seen other consultants over the years on the recommendation of our vet but went straight back to Gareth once he became local to us again.

We've had a few appointments over the last 12 months. Gareth has taken the time to fully explain the options available and what he considers a realistic outcome would be. Prices are discussed in advance and estimates are realistic. Aftercare is good with comprehensive reports that are easy to understand and follow up phone calls + emails.

Fast forward to today when I have a senior Labrador who will never be cured but is happy & enjoying life. Thank you for helping us in our journey.

Massive thanks to Gareth and the team at Arthurs Orthopaedics and TVC for the care given to Bert for his recent TPLO procedure.

I’m a Registered Veterinary Nurse with particular interest in /experience of referral orthopaedics. I’ve known Gareth in a professional capacity for a number of years but I have never been on this side of the fence before, as an owner whose dog is needing a major orthopaedic procedure. I can 100% say that Gareth is the safest possible hands - so much so I chose to travel from Derbyshire to Northampton in order that Gareth be the one to do the surgery for Bert.

From initial contact when referral was looking likely, through to discharge of Bert after surgery, every aspect of communication and care has been completely professional and very easy, and conducted with an obvious genuine interest in, and care for, both the patient and the owner. Bert was not the easiest of patients while hospitalised, but every effort was made to keep him calm and make him feel safe. Hats off to the overnight nursing team in particular - I’m fully aware of how difficult he can be, so many thanks to you too!

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Gareth and his team to any owner needing to consider an orthopaedic referral for their pet. I worked in the field of veterinary orthopaedic referrals for more than 5 years and I can honestly say that Gareth is one of the kindest, most compassionate and straightforward specialists in his field. Huge thanks from Bert and from me.
