Caring, efficient practice.

My little Star went in yesterday to be spayed. Fran met me outside, such a kind caring vet. My little dog growls at most humans but when I went to collect her she was snuggled into Fran. Very efficient, caring practice and I had a call this morning to check if everything was ok with Star.
Many thanks to Fran and the ladies in reception.

Excellent neighbourhood vets! Julian was very helpful and caring for our Jack Russell, Holly, who suffered a traumatic emergency. Holly is fully recovered thanks to their capable hands. I fully recommend them for your furry loved one!

Lovely Open Minded Vets

So refreshing to meet open minded Vets. Sadly one of my first experiences was losing my Collie Y-Y but Julian was amazing. Told the situation to me straight. Nor am I made to feel bad for feeding a balanced raw food diet. Impressed they do Titer tests, a much needed option. Helpful Nurses for advice on those small issues. After 47 years training dogs I have to say I am impressed. Very good prices which helps hugely . My latest Service/Support/Medical Assistance Dog is complex and so glad they listened to me on how to deal with her very high drive . I can't thank them enough. I feel better knowing I'm not going to get frowned on for what I feed or anything else. Thank you all so much .
