Veterinary Surgeon

Aiz, MRCVS

Aiz Baig, a veterinary surgeon with over two decades of experience in companion animal medicine, is deeply committed to delivering exceptional veterinary care. Through compassionate consultations, Aiz ensures that every pet receives personalized attention and the highest standard of care. As a fervent advocate for proactive pet healthcare, Aiz empowers pet owners with valuable insights into disease prevention and long-term management strategies, fostering a collaborative approach to pet wellness.

Our services include often extended consultations for check-ups and advice, dentistry to keep your pet’s teeth healthy, and an in-house laboratory for swift and accurate diagnostics. We also offer keyhole surgery for minimally invasive procedures, microchipping for identification, and online appointment booking for your convenience. With parasite care, pet neutering, ultrasound, vaccinations, and x-rays all available under one roof, you can trust our experienced team to keep your pets in optimal health.

Aiz’s dedication to animal welfare extends beyond his professional duties; alongside his wife, he rescued a Boxer X Staffie named Sticky Toffee Pudding, who has been a cherished member of their family for the past decade. This enduring bond exemplifies Aiz’s profound appreciation for the role of companion animals in our lives. In addition to his veterinary work, Aiz has generously volunteered his time with the Sea Cadets, demonstrating his commitment to serving both animals and the community.
