TV Vets

We are proud to introduce our dedicated team of on-screen and off-screen qualified and experienced vets who play a crucial role in ensuring the health, welfare, and safety of animals involved in TV films and media productions.

Our experienced veterinarians are committed to upholding the highest standards of animal care and welfare throughout the entire production process. Allowing us to provide you with an overview of our comprehensive services and the importance we place on the well-being of the animals we work with.

Health Checks:

Our on-screen and off-screen vets conduct thorough health checks on all animals involved in TV films and media productions. Prior to any filming or on-screen appearance, our veterinarians carefully examine each animal to ensure they are in good physical condition. These health checks include assessing vital signs, monitoring for any signs of illness or distress, and verifying that the animals are fit to perform and appear on screen. Our vets work closely with the animal handlers and production team to address any health concerns and make informed decisions to safeguard the animals’ well-being.

Welfare Checks:

We are committed to providing the highest standards of animal welfare during filming and production. Our on-screen and off-screen vets conduct regular welfare checks to monitor the animals’ well-being throughout the process. These checks include assessing their living conditions, nutrition, hydration, and mental stimulation. Our veterinarians also ensure that appropriate rest periods are scheduled to prevent fatigue or stress. By prioritising animal welfare, we create a safe and comfortable environment that allows the animals to perform to the best of their abilities.

Risk Assessment:

The safety of both animals and human cast and crew members is paramount in every production. Our team of on-screen and off-screen vets collaborates with the production team to conduct comprehensive risk assessments. These assessments identify potential hazards and implement appropriate measures to mitigate any risks. Our vets are trained to identify potential issues and take proactive steps to minimise them, ensuring a safe and secure environment for everyone involved.

Written Follow-up Certification:

We understand the importance of documentation and accountability. After each production, our on-screen and off-screen vets provide written follow-up certification to confirm that the animals involved have received proper health checks, welfare checks, and any necessary veterinary treatments throughout the filming process. This documentation serves as a record of our commitment to animal care and can be shared with relevant authorities or organisations to demonstrate compliance with industry standards and regulations.

Our team of on-screen and off-screen vets brings a wealth of experience, expertise, and compassion to ensure the well-being of animals in TV films and media productions. By conducting thorough health checks, regular welfare checks, and comprehensive risk assessments, we create a safe and ethical environment for animals to shine on screen. Our commitment to providing written follow-up certification ensures transparency and accountability in all our productions.

Join us as we strive to create captivating and responsible content that showcases the beauty and wonder of animals while upholding their welfare at all times.
