What absolutely lovely people! My partner and I took our beloved cat in because she had an abcess. The vet treated her initally then the nurse treated her for the next three days. We were kept informed every day about the treatment and medication she had received. We were also advised very early on that she might need an operation but they were using medicine and cleaning to try to prevent this. They spoke to us about what was best for our cat and the financial implications because they are aware that not everybody is financially well off.
On the fourth day, after discussions with the vet, we decided that it would be kinder to put our gorgeous cat to sleep, as she was in a lot of pain and because of her age the chance of the operation being a success was not good. Saying goodbye was awful because I had her from an 8 week kitten but the vet gave us as long as we needed to sit with her before she gave the injection and was supportive throughout.
The fees at this vets are the lowest we have paid which must help a lot of people and we spoke to three vets, a trainee vet, a nurse, the practice manager and two receptionists during our visits, who were all really friendly and helpful.

We had an appontment for a pet pass port the vet didn't turn up for that appointment so we rescheduled for the next week. No apology from the vet for missing the first appointment . He failed to tell us that we could not travel for 21 days after the rabies jab we have now had to cancel our holiday because of the lack of proffessionlism

My dog received an excellent standard of quality of care from the moment we entered the practice. Senior Vet Robert handled Brynn who was seriously ill, with confidence and extreme kindness which gave me immediate reassurance and explained every step of his diagnosis and treatment in a way I could understand. The whole team that were involved in Brynns care were both professional and compassionate. A wonderful practice.

I had to rush my sulfer crested cockatoo to the vet because his foot was bleeding so badly, the minute we went through the door the vet was with us knowing a bird cannot afford to loose much blood... he was given some drops that the vet put on his foot that stopped the bleeding instantly... i was so upset about his injury and the vet was so nice to my bird to the extent that he could have indeed had his finger bitten badly... my cockatoo loved the vet and the vet trusted my bird which made the bad situation so calming... alls well with my bird and i would take him there again without doubt.. i would recommend this vets surgery to anyone with any type of animal, for their understanding and the devotion they showed to us .

We had to take our cat to the vet today. Unfortunately she is no longer with us. The vet and all the staff were very professional and very understanding. The sympathy that everyone had at the practice was out of this world. Thank you. You all made a traumatic time more bearable for us.
