On the 11th October 2015 our family dog Bailey became ill with sickness. We took him to the vets as soon as they opened. Bailey was given a range of injections to stop illness and any pain and came home. By 12 that day he was not able to walk,crying and looked in pain so we rushed him back. We got told to call 10am the next day on the Monday. We called but got told Bailey needed an ultra sound and more test were needed but the vet was in consultation and would call us back. I fully understand this. However, we heard nothing and after 4 more calls throughout the day and being told the Same thing. Noone called us back to inform us why our dog had to have ultra sounds etc so we were fearing the worst all night. The next day my husband went up to the vets and the vet informed us that no one had passed any messages on!! Since then forms for insurance were not sent but we were told they had been by the receptionist. I got a call to say they had been misplaced. My concern is the lack of communication between department's and disregard for the stress it caused and is causing. We will be seeking alternative veterinary care.This is the second time this type of service has occurred.
Thank you for your review, we take all our comments seriously, if you could call us or arrange a suitable time to come in, we would be happy to discuss this matter further.

Today we had to say a heart breaking goodbye to our wonderful chocolate lab Winston.
Every one at the practice was supportive and understanding and made it possible to deal with this awful decision.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A lot of vets in Northampton are greedy and are often only interested in the money so service is rushed and pets are not looked after as well as they should be. Abington Park Vets is completely the opposite. My cat was recently taken in sick and I was very worried. The vets took good care of her and you could tell that they really cared for the animals and looked after them as if it were their own pet. I was very happy with the way they treated me and I will continue to use this vets for all my pets in future.

Having been to the wellingbough rd surgery for years with family pets when I lived at home (dogs, cats and rodents of various types) my partner and I now use them for all our own pets (dogs, cats, rats and a gecko). Not only are they friendly and love animals. They give advice and are really in it for the long haul for your life with the animal. Just pop in to see them is fine and not going to cost you, but helps get your pet used to the place and the people making it a place they like to be and not scary. They are 24hr and when you call on a Sunday night because your worried they will give you a full run through of symptoms and advice.
All in all they have got better over the years and with 2 more sites since our family started using them that can't be bad. Can't say enough about them.

Our dog Caillie, had an operation on her leg, and we were told how to check her toes up at the Moulton College Surgery. Later that evening her toes were cold, I called the emergency number and we took her straight in to the Northampton branch. Upon arrival, just after 10pm we were greeted and Caillie quickly assessed. We were told what was going to be done clearly and professionally. Caillie was taken off for sedation a few minutes after arrival. The staff we saw were great and their care of Caillie was exemplary, as with the staff up at Moulton. Thanks to all!

I had to make an emergency call this afternoon (a Sunday) for my dog who was screaming in pain. Even though we were not registered at this vets (we are now though!) they told us to come in straight away and we were seen within 8 mins of arriving. The vet was very professional and explained everything in detail in a language that a layperson could understand. She laid out all of the costs before I agreed to the treatment so that there wasn't any nasty surprise at the end of it and I felt that they genuinely cared for my dogs welfare. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this practice as although veterinary treatment is expensive wherever you go, the care and respect is priceless if you find the right surgery.

Every visit to a vet is a worry whether for a hamster, rabbit, parrot or chicken! All the vets I have seen at this practice have been excellent at explaining what my animals have needed and have provided fantastic levels of care to them all.
I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for a vet for their animal.
