If a vet is operating out of premises which has employees or is accessed by members of the public, you do need to PAT Test. You should also ensure that any appliances that you use on other peoples premises are maintained and inspected. Most vets find the easiest way of complying is by doing their own PAT Testing. It is easy to do and you do not need to be an electrician.
