We have used Vets 4 Pets for a number of years and have to say that all the staff, including receptionists, nurses and vets to be polite, friendly and professional. We have numerous rescue great danes and seem to be at the vets on a regular basis! We (both the dogs and ourselves!) have always been treat extremely well and always have total confidence in any advice and treatment given, over and above what would be expected. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vets 4 Pets to anyone. Keep up the good work!

“So caring at my worst moment”

I only moved my animals to Vets4Pets about 6 months ago after dissatisfaction with the way my old greyhound was being treated at my old vets.

Immediately I knew I had made the right choice for my animals and myself. The staff are superb, from reception to senior vets. My old boy had extensive dental surgery (which my previous vet had refused to do) and he was so well looked after. They gave him the opportunity to really enjoy his last summer.

Sadly, a couple of days ago my old boy suddenly went downhill. Within a matter of hours he was struggling to stand and panting dreadfully. I called and spoke with Aimee, who, despite my hysteria, managed to understand what I was saying and told me to bring him in. My neighbour carried him to the car and we were at the surgery as quick as we could. Immediately Aimee came over and we were shown into a private room. The vet (I'm so sorry I didn't even register which vet it was) came in and thoroughly examined my boy. He had heart failure, he was very sick and I had to make a decision. As Freddie was 13 and suffered badly with arthritis, we all felt it fairer to him to let him go. The vet and nurse were truly wonderful. Afterwards I was allowed to stay with Freddie as long as I wanted, giving me time to gather my thoughts and say goodbye,

Two days later a lovely card arrived in the post from the team at Vets for Pets and this will be treasured.

I know all my animals are in good hands with this practice and have no hesitation in recommending them,

Thank you to all the wonderful staff for your kindness and support, it really does mean a lot.

“Very unhappy customer”

I am absolutely disgusted in the way this team works. My partner and I bought a Siberian husky, who only needed his last jab, due to good comments about Peter the vet at the surgery from family, we decided to use vets for pets services. On arrival we were greeted by friendly reception staff, as we entered the room to see the vet, we quickly noticed it wasn't Peter as it was a woman. First visit was ok, after a week our puppy still had the runs so we rang the vet and the receptionist told us we'd need to book him an appointment as he's in need of anti-biotics, we made an appointment for the femail vet to tell us he didn't need anti-biotics he'd benefit by taking pro-Kolin plus, we paid the £26 fee plus the £12 for the treatment. Took our dog home and started to administer the initial treatment only to find 3 days later, our dogs stomach is 5x worse than when we took him, and now when going to the toilet my dog is now being sick mucus, rang the vets back to get the practice manager on the phone telling us we'd have to make another appointment for him to get anti-biotics but we'd still have to foot the bill which I think is disgusting seen as it was the vets initial analysis which caused my pet to be in prolonged pain! In my personal opinion the femail vet needs to re-sit her exams! The receptionist knew more than she did! I will be changing vets and will be recommending friends not to go there! Thank you very much vets for pets, you made my pet worse!!

Dr Peter Richards BVSc MRCVS

Dear Mr Thomas,

While we welcome constructive feedback, I do not feel your complaint is justified in this instance. The professionalism of the vets in this practice is without question. As an experienced professional the vet who saw your dog made the clinical decision to treat the condition in an appropriate manner, if the clinical signs worsen, the vet cannot be held responsible for that. Many injuries, illnesses and diseases may present with clinically worsening signs. Antibiotics have to be used with care to ensure their prolonged activity as well as safety in young dogs. It does seem as if your dog will need continued treatment as there may be a wide possibility of different diagnoses which could cause a worsening diarrhea and sickness.
However the practice does not tolerate abuse and threatening behaviour towards any member of staff. Due to your unreasonable and threatening attitude to my colleague, on the telephone earlier this morning, I will have to inform you that I will not be prepared to treat your pets at this practice, at this time or any future time. Please take the earliest opportunity to register your pet at another vet of your choice and I will provide them with the clinical history when requested.

“consultation costs”

I recently took my dog for treatment for his anal glands and he was given medication and i was told to return 24hrs later for another injection for him. Now i can appreciate the costs for consultation and treatment but what i find disgusting is being charged a further consutation fee for the second visit when it is for the same condition. I have been given an appointment to return in three days which i am very seriously thinking of cancelling a no doubt there will be another fee. I have been taking my dog to this practise since he was a puppy and he is now 10years old and they never used to charge for further consultations if it was for the same ailment. I know this may now be common practise but i hate to think that the once personal care as now become financially driven.

I'm sorry you feel you have cause to complain. We do make charges for the appointments and time spent consulting with the veterinary surgeon, this is the normal practice for veterinary surgeons. Our prices of consultations and repeat consultations are clearly displayed in every veterinary consulting room. We operate a healthcare system which is not funded by charity nor government, but paid for by the clients who use it. As far as we are aware our prices are fair and competitive. Unfortunately I do not have enough detail from your complaint to be able to discuss the individual circumstances with you, however if you can please get in touch with me directly, I can see more clearly if you have a valid reason to dispute the fees.

“Long standing client”

We have been going to Vet4Pets since it opened with Peter and Caroline. We are cat owners and had Jazzy and Lucy then. We had fantastic help from Peter when Jazzy became diabetic. Unfortunately these two cats had to be put to sleep at 12 and 18 and we were treated with sympathy and kindness. We now have Susie and Katy and we would never think of going anywhere else with them.
