What we offer to pet owners

We provide help and support to owners whose pets have been diagnosed with a tumour or cancer. Providing expert advice and helping you work out the best option for your pet and their family.

At our online referral consultations, we will find out more about your pet, explain what the diagnosis means, establish the impact the disease has on your pet’s life and explain the various treatment options available.

We remain 100% committed to placing your pet’s quality of life as our number one priority and can also provide support and advice should you decide that the treatment options will not be suitable for whatever reason.

Clare Knottenbelt, an RCVS Specialist in Small Animal Medicine who previously worked at the University of Glasgow Small Animal Hospital as a Professor of Small Animal Medicine and Oncology has many years of experience in supporting owners and vets to deliver cancer treatments.

An initial 60-minute online consultation costs £174 and is run through Zoom.

Prior to the consultation we will need access to your pet’s medical records and we will need the consent of your own vet.

After the consultation your vet will be sent a full report on the options discussed with you and details of any treatment required.

If you would like to arrange a consultation with Clare please request a referral from your vet using the following template.

Dear ……

I would like to request an online referral consultation with Clare Knottenbelt at Hawk and Dove Vets to discuss my pet’s treatment options. This can be requested at the following link

With kindest regards


I have Clare to thank for providing such compassionate, gold standard treatment within days of diagnosis for my two dogs.

After being in the unfortunate position of having two of my dogs diagnosed within two days of each other.

One with Lymphoma
One with liver mass

Clare had arranged both an online consult and in practice consult with both of them the next day.

She clearly explained our options, discussed scan results and co-ordinated their treatment plans with the soft tissue surgeon. Just what was required as a client when faced with the challenge of finding the best options for your pet.

To have Clare take the lead in providing such integrative healthcare has been fantastic for myself, my dogs but also as a great point of contact for the vets and specialists treating them.

Fantastic help and advice at a difficult time.
