“Sympathetic & Understanding”

We have been with the Berners Street practice for just over 12 years and they have always taken fantastic care of Gizmo. She took ill very suddenly and sadly died 2 days later. Zoe took great care of her in her final hours and could not have been more helpful and understanding

“Small furries say "Thank you"”

It's such a relief and surprise that moving out of London has brought us to a real animal hospital! When rabbits are unwell they can go downhill very quickly and whatever the time of day or night the Orwell practice is ready to help, whether with phone advice or an admission.
I'm always impressed by how ready the vets are to talk with each other and discuss a possible problem. To me, that is true professionalism
Receptionists, nurses and vets are involved, knowledgeable and friendly.
Finally, the night staff are the regular vet staff, not a locum practice,which means there is continuity and they know my animals already.

“Family cat put to sleep”

I brought my elderly cat to be put to sleep after a period of her being quite unwell and not wanting her to suffer. The vet was extremely understanding and made me feel at ease with what was a very difficult decision. If only humans had this option. The vet was heart felt and had a lot of time for me and my pet. Thank you so much.

“Grange Farm”

The staff at Grange Farm are always polite professional and caring towards my dog "Chester" mad boisterous chocolate lab & "Molly" my quiet moggy.
Always try there best to fit me in with a suitable appointment time, and have gone out there way to fit Chester in for his nail clipping. ( big thanks to Tracy, as she flys through the doors hanging on to him).
I would always recommend Grange Farm Orwell Vets to anyone, fantastic service.

“Worst case of bed side manner”

My dog had an accident and I rushed to Grange Farm after 9 pm. The vet at the Practice was unsympathetic, indifferent and aloof. He actually made us feel like we had disrupted his evening. At the high prices I have been charged up until then, I do expect more service from Orwell vets.
He "explained" to me what had happened to my dog in a pedantic way by describing the condition using medical latinised jargon. In reality, what I need in a moment of stress such as that one is a vet that can clearly describe the issues in plain English, whilst showing a sympathetic manner and reassurance, both of which I did not get. I would not recommend this practice as there are very good vets in the area nearby that charge half as much as Orwell do.

James Bagnall
Orwell Veterinary Group

We were extremely sorry to hear the feedback left by 'Mr XXX' and the issues he has raised. At Orwell Veterinary Group we are striving to provide a first class service to our clients, that includes excellent care of our clients as well as their pets. This customer care should obviously include things such as sympathy and effective communication so that the customer has confidence and trust in us to care for their pet clinically. Without engaging effectively and appropriately with a customer we cannot ensure full understanding of a problem, involve them fully in treatment decisions, or give them the reassurances they often want. It would appear in this instance that we have failed to meet the standards that we set ourselves and that our clients expect. We have spoken to MrXX on the telephone to get a more detailed description of the poor service he received and the matter has been discussed at some length with the member of staff concerned. The Veterinary Surgeon concerned fully understands the need for excellent client communication and up until this instance has had nothing but positive feedback from clients particularly in relation to the thorough and high standard of his work clinically.
We encourage and appreciate customer feedback whether negative or positive. In reality negative feedback is what drives improvement in our performance and I have no doubt that is what will happen in this instance. I would however like to assure all our current customers or any prospective new customers that this was an isolated incident and not a true reflection of the high standards we set at Orwell Vet Group.

“First Class Veterinary Care”

I could not sing praises enough for this very professional, caring and dedicated team at Orwell Vets. We are regular visitors at the vets with both our dog and cat having chronic conditions and they could not be in better care ranging from our brilliant vet, nurses and great receptionists. They put you at ease at each visit and call you when they say they will. Ive never come across such a caring veterinary practice and its very comforting having a vets thats a hospital too - first class!

“absolutely brilliant”

I love this vets.didnt think anyone could replace my vets from home town. But james at orwell has managed it. The staff are always friendly and james always has time for you. Receiving a hand written letter after loosing my cat tilly in a horrific collision with a car made me feel more at ease and a lot less embarrassed to go back after he had to deal with my hysterical crying when I brought her in on a Sunday. Highly recommend them to anyone and everyone

“Fantastic staff from vets to receptionists.”

I have been with Orwell Vets since they moved to Berners Street and I have never had a bad word to say about them.My first cat Oscar had a pyothorax when he was 8 which basically meant he was drowning in his own lungs which thankfully he survived. This left him with permanent lung problems for the rest of his life but I was never made to feel I was wasting their time whenever I was panicking over any little problem he had.

When my cats Barney & Archie were shot by someone with an air rifle in 2010 they could not have been more helpful.I was kept completely advised of the situation at all times and being allowed to visit them both each night really helped me cope with the situation.Archie was given a lot of fuss & love during the several weeks he was there. Even when sadly Archie had to be put to sleep their support was wonderful.

I really couldn't recommend them highly enough
