No longer exotic experts
They no longer have the expert vet which was recommended to me. Their treatment of one my exotic animals has led to it passing away and am following through with further action. If I could give then 0 stars I would.

Orchid friendly: no way; Orchid integrity: no way.... used to work at wickford with another vet... there is only one who is a true avian vet and he is up north. He left me in a car park with a dying bird saying he will not see me simply because I closed the door on one of his friends....

Very friendly and helpful
We have found the care and attention to be great with a friendly atmosphere. We cannot fault the surgery at all.

Daylight robbery
This is the worst vets I have ever been to. Do not take your animal there, they are money grabbers!. Only interested in taking your money.

Sent my cat there 2 weeks ago, they gave me him an injection of antibiotics and steroids in which they said should cure him. Went back 2 weeks later cat was still unwell and this time they asked me to do an x ray and remove one of his teeth as this may be the reason the cat is unwell. When my cat was left in their care for 5 hours he was not fed or given any water to drink. When I took him home he could not stand up and needed food and water. Shocked that he wasn't taken care of. 12 days later my cat was worse than what it was previously, took him back and was told to do another x ray or send to another specialist as they can't tell me what's wrong with him. Spent over £700 with them already and they still can't tell me what's wrong with him and now suggesting to see a specialist. Will not spend anymore money with them now taking him to diff vets

Very happy with Orchid vets
Very friendly and caring with my cat in her elder years, William has treated Molly with respect and dignity and I totally trust his judgment in what to do next. It is nice to be able to see the same vet and know that he understands me and my cat.

Excellent with rodents, as well as dogs and cats
I had to follow William Lewis to his new post even though it was a few more miles away. Over the years William helped with my elderly Working Trials Champion Border Collie, and my cat who developed struvite crystals but and after the diagnosis and operation is still going strong two years later. This vet always gives the right amount of technical information, advice and feedback.
That also applies to my long succession of pet rats. Other vets euthanase or refuse to treat. William doesn't .He is up-to-date and gives you the advice you need.
Thank goodness he didn't move miles away.
The staff are very welcoming and competent.
There is also parking at front!
