“High standard of care”

I've been taking my pets to Braids for over 25 years and have always had confidence that they were receiving a high standard of care from knowledgeable professional staff. In addition the vets and nurses do their best to put the animal at ease as much as possible and my dogs don't mind going to the vets at all. This is really important as most pets will have to visit the vet many times in their lifetime and without this care it could be a stressful and unpleasant experience for the animal. I would recommend this practice to family and friends.

“Friendly and helpful”

The first impression at Braid Vets is good - ample car parking, spacious reception area inside - and the staff at reception are always friendly.
There is a great choice of consulting time at Braid Vets - morning, early afternoon and late afternoon so there has always been a time to suit me.
I gave 3 Stars for value - a city centre vet will never be the cheapest option but I guess I pay a little more for its proximity to my home - especially when I'm driving and I've an angry cat wailing away in its basket beside me!
For things like weight management (my dog) I've had useful and FREE consultations with a vet nurse.

“Fantastic Practice”

I have been visiting this practice for almost 3years now, with various puppies who have been in my care. I have nothing but praise for each member of staff I have met....their professionalism, their manner and their level of care is unbeatable. I would recommend Braid Vets to everyone!

“8 years and counting.......”

Registered when I first got my puppy, had lots of help in the first year with regular visits and puppy party too. Every 6 months we go for a free check up and always find the staff friendly and helpful.

“My dog likes going to the vets!”

I would never have thought it was possible but there it is! We have been attending Braids since she was 8 weeks old, she is now 8 and every time she goes she can't wait to get in the door. The staff are really friendly and helpful and always make a fuss of her. I tell everyone I meet, whilst out walking, about my great vets!

“I love my Vet”

My name is Daisy, I'm a fabulous Dalmatian, I love going to see Mike (The Vet), he always pays me lots of attention, gets down beside me - I hate the wobbly table thing, and I get a treat at the end.
My Humans likes them because they know their stuff and treat me like I really matter.

“Over 30 years and counting”

I was introduced to Braid Vets (then called Hall, Johnson and Ross) over 30 years ago, when my dog was taken there by the police having been scared off by fireworks and injured. Since then they have tended to a further four of my dogs. All have been traeted sympathetically both during perods of illness and when they eventually passed. In fact Mike Hall who treated one dog throughout his 17 years, was almost as upset as me when he passed.

My latest dog, a lovely Staffie, has also been under Mike's care, until recently when Peter took over, to monitor her heart condition.

All the vets and staff, at Mayfied, are friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone with a pet.

“Very empathetic”

The vet was very empathetic when my hamster was ill and needed euthanised. He talked us through the procedure so that we knew she would go peacefully. he made us feel comfortable with our decision and I am so grateful!

“Friendly vet”

In February I brought my cat Judy in to braids. She had a gastric virus. The care and attention she received was fantastic. Judy had to stay in over night and they kept me updated frequently about her condition. I can't thank Chris Ross and the other staff at braids enough!

“Where to go for Doggy woes!”

My two beagles have been in the care of Braid
Vets for 9 years! They have provided excellent
service and amazing advice from bad beagle
behaviour, to ligament injuries, to accidental
pheasant food overdose and epileptic episodes.
Totally invaluable and the out of hours
service has come to the rescue once!
Have never hesitated to recommend Braid
Vets. One very happy customer and two
happy dogs (depending on treatment of course)

“Great Team”

I currently have 4 rabbits registered with the practice; and they have looked after 5 others before them.
This practice provides excellent care and good facilities. My rabbits have had both surgical and medical care from the vets and vet nurses, and I cannot give anything but 100% praise to both. My rabbits are all members of the health plan, and they are insured; so I have confidence that they are getting the best possible treatment that is required and available. All the staff are great. The reception staff are very friendly; and the vets and nurses are very patient and are happy to explain treatments and procedures to an owner who is renowned for asking lots of questions.
They are also very sympathetic when it comes to making difficult decisions relating to pets.

Would definitely recommend.

“Would recommend”

I've been going to Braid Vets for about 10 years with my house rabbits, have had quite a few surgical procedures done and think the facilities are care are excellent. Being a member of the Health Plan helps me spread the cost of routine care and gives a 10% discount on other services. Rabbits are not always easy to diagnose and treat but Braid Vets are up to date on current knowledge and are always friendly and sympathetic. Would definitely recommend.
