“Best Veterinary practice anywhere”

I have nothing but praise for this practice,i have taken my older dog here for some time,and when i purchased my new long awaited german shepherd on 16th October,he wasnt due to go for his first vaccination until 19th,but hadnt ate anything for 12 hours,so i phoned up and explained,the lovely receptionist Hannah, said it was better to bring him in to get him checked over,a lovely vet Nick checked him over thoroughly,then got a second opinion,i was told he had a blockage,but at that precise moment they wasnt sure,and they wanted to keep him in,the following day he was transferred over to the Willows animal hospital in northwich,where prue saved my little Prince,he had a stone in his uretha,and when she operated on 21st,she found his intestines had telescoped,they kept me updated without fail,everything was explained so as i understood properly,it was through their tireless efforts my beloved little pup,has a second chance,what amazing people,i can not express my million thanks enough for all involved,you really don't know what a brilliant veterinary practice is until you have visited these guys,they are professional at all times,but friendly,and how i don't know with how hard and the long hours these amazing people put in,anyone who disagrees,should ask themselves how well would they do in their shoes,and maybe work one shift,and see how well they do,well done Beech House and The Willows,love you guys xx

“Final Farewell”

We had to call the emergency vet out, Rachel, two weeks ago. My partner had found my cat unable to walk and in a lot of pain. Rachel speedily met us with a Veterinary Nurse at the surgery. She had made a diagnosis of a burst blood clot over the phone which she was able to confirm.

At all times Rachel showed compassion towards Tedney, myself and partner. She explained clearly that putting him to sleep was the only humane option. Both staff were empathetic in their approach and treated Tedney with respect and dignity.

This is the fourth cat I have had treated by Beech House and when I have my fifth. He or she will be going there too.

Thank you.

“highly would recommend and a big thank you to all the staff”

Hi love this practice and have recommended it to plenty of my family, friends and even strangers. If it was not for beech house I would not still have my bichon frise candy they have helped her so much over the last 11 years. Candy has had 4 operations on her legs 3 on her eyes many skin conditions, she is highly allergic to everything she has cushions and plenty more they have helped her out and never have never given up on her. Sean is amazing and she loves him and will run in to his room. She is well looked after when I have to leave her there. They have also helped out with a lot of the dog that come though bichon frise rescue if anything happened to this practice I don't no what I would do. Keep up the good work beech house.

I took my elderly cat for her routine annual injections, Thursday 26th February. We were kept waiting for over half an hour past our appointment time, and no apology was given. Once in with the vet, I wasn't happy with the rough way in which my cat was handled. The vet showed no respect to my elderly cat whatsoever.

I felt I needed to put this review on to make you aware, as normally my experience of Beech House is excellent.

Willows Veterinary Group

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that we have not met our usual 'excellent' standards of service. Occasionally there can be problems with appointment times if an animal needs urgent emergency care, or complications arise during surgery, etc. We should have informed you of what was happening and apologised for the wait. Your comments re the way our vet handled your comments have been passed on to the Practice Manager to be acted upon. Once again we apologise.

“Kind, caring, informative and supportive!”

When I knew I was getting a puppy (which was some months in advance of actually getting him), I rang a few of the vets in the local area. First port of call was the vets4pets chain; being money motivated they seemed to have a good vacs offer. Naively I assumed that all vets would display interest in my new puppy and share my excitement but I didn't get a good vibe about them. I rang a few others and then Beech House. Within moments of speaking with someone, I KNEW that I wanted these guys to look after my boy- deals and bargains aside.

When we first got Alan, he came with Giardia (a parasite), which was dealt with in an effective manner and always with a sympathetic and supportive ear and advice. Alan is our first puppy and the vets we saw on each occasion were always superb and really put our minds at rest. Despite being poorly over Christmas, they did everything within their power to deal with his tummy as soon as possible and kept us regularly updated.

It's only since this situation that I've evaluated the cost difference in vacs (vs the vets4pets vac4life offer) and in reality, over the duration of a dog's life, it's not a big difference and the care of my dog is way more important. I am a huge huge fan of this practice and everything they do; I wouldn't take Alan anywhere else!

As an aside, I have visited Holly House in Knutsford once and they're just as lovely. The group clearly work hard to hire the best people and they should take pride in the fact that they do.

Thank you so very much!

Ainsley, Chris and Alan

“great practice ”

Beech house was recommended to me and I changed from a vet's I wasnt very happy with. Beech house is so much better. Our cocker spaniel has her yearly boosters here and in the last year has had surgery on both knees.I have no complaints whatsoever,every thing went well and the staff were very caring and professional.They deal with your insurance claim on your behalf which takes the mither out of it.It also really helps that the hospital is on site. I will and do recommended Beech house to anyone that asks. Thanks

“Highly Recommended for Small Animal Practice”

The Exotic Vet at this practice Mr. Stuart Becker is one of the most knowledgeable surgeons I have encountered. He is very skilled and I have found him to be one of the best vets around for treating my guinea-pigs - I cannot recommend this vet highly enough. He listens to what you have to say and genuinely cares about the animals that he is treating and he really knows his stuff. I will not be taking my guinea-pigs to any other vet in the future.

I use lymm surgery and they are really good and understanding on reception i find beech house a little rude and abrupt my dog was having xrays yesterday i rang to ask if shed had them and was greated with " we told you the vet would ring " in a rude tone and i replyed and i told you that i has a christing and wouldnt b able to ans the phone so wouldnt recomend

Willows Veterinary Group

Hi Sarah. We are sorry that you found our staff a little rude and we have spoken to them. Although it is no excuse, Beech House is also a 24 hour emergency centre that is open 7 days a week. They are incredibly busy and see lots of patients needing emergency surgery and round the clock critical care, sent there by other local surgeries who can't offer this service. This does mean that at times the staff may experience difficulty when trying to ring somebody back at an arranged time or may appear abrupt simply due to the pressure they are under. I am glad to hear that you have a great experience at our Lymm Surgery and hope that between our two surgeries you can continue to receive a caring service for all your routine needs and an unrivalled emergency service if ever you are unfortunate enough to need it.
