Normally excellent but not today

On 6 April I arranged for a repeat prescription for my cat and was told by a receptionist that it would be ready by Saturday 8 April. When I turned up to collect it the surgery was closed though I could see 2 people behind the reception desk. I rang to explain, and was told it was closed at it closes at 1:30 p.m. According to my watch it was not yet 1.30 p.m. I pointed this out but was still told it was closed. I was informed it would next be open on Tuesday but I said I could not come on Tuesday (tooth extraction) or Wednesday (hospital treatment). The reaction was indifference. I'll have to hope the cat's medicine lasts long enough for when I can next attend.

Trusted veterinary practice - the best !!

I took my my Dachshund Lucie into the surgery last week - I was dreading going in since Mrs Hills sad passing (Carol Hill has been my vet for many years - such an amazing vet and a lovely person) I was booked in to see Mark, I was totally satisfied with the consultation with Mark, he was thorough, and explained everything- a really nice guy. I will be requesting Mark for future visits.

Distressing experience

Our rabbit had to be put down. This was very distressing for us in the first place but it was made worse by the vet talking all the way through our last minutes with our pet. Instead of hearing our familiar voices to reassure him during the process, he had to hear a stranger's voice which must have added to his fear. On top of that, we couldn't concentrate on saying goodbye properly because the vet was talking incessantly and, to make it worse, she was talking about all the different ways there are to euthanize an animal - how insensitive. I didn't want to cause a fuss at the time for fear of increasing my daughter's distress but I deeply regret having our beloved rabbit euthanized there and wish we had just taken him home. To improve, please respect a family's last moments with their pet and have the decency to keep quiet while they say goodbye.

Hills has lost its touch

Hills used to be very good but now Mrs Hill is there less you never see the same vet twice. This sounds ok but actually can have devastating consequences. Because as you bounce between different inexperienced locums you don’t get one vet to focus on your case and work towards a diagnosis.

I’ve been with Hills years but have decided to move to another vet who has a policy of not using locums. I’m hoping for more consistent, joined up & dedicated care from one vet

Fabulous, lovely and warm practice. Mrs Hill is so nice and so are the other vets. Took very good care of my dog in all aspects for 16 years. Would highly recommend.

I've been taking my pets to Hills for over 30 years and they've always had great care there.
