With the animals and animal owners in focus, we work together to constantly improve ourselves and our way of working. Always with our feet on the ground and our hearts in the right place.

Welcome to Distriktsveterinärerna! Our clinics are located in about 80 locations in Sweden, from Tomelilla in the south to Kiruna in the north.
