We are so grateful to the Team at Medivet Flitwick, for saving the life of our beloved Dog Gemma. Given the unexpected severity of the situation and our Dogs age, we literally had to make a life or death decision. Coline {the Vet on Duty at the time} was excellent considering the highly emotional situation. She made all the options clear to us and warned us of the potential pitfalls given our Dogs age and the seriousness of her condition. With all things considered we asked her to proceed with the operation, which she did without hesitation, even though the odds were stacked against us. Gemma was transferred to the Medivet Hospital in Watford. Coline kept us updated throughout and this was followed up by Magda, at the Watford hospital. The complete process was seamless and very efficient. We were also kept fully informed of the costs so we could monitor and control the situation. Following major surgery {splenectomy} Gemma was returned to us within 4 days. The family were so relieved and pleased, that not only had she recovered but was now tearing around like a crazy teenager and once again eating us out of house and home! We believe Coline's quick diagnosis and action helped to save Gemma's life. Nic {Partner and Veterinary Surgeon} as always, was great and followed up with the after care. He was also able to give us the results of the tests earlier than expected and was able to confirm that there was no sign of cancer, which was amazing considering that there was a 75% chance that it was! We would also like to thank Jenny for her help and support during the process and to the complete Team at Medivet who saved our Dogs life.

“2 recent emergency appointments”

Just a few lines to thank Monsieur Caron, Teresa Burns & the team at Medivet Flitwick for their fantastic care of my cat & my neighbours cat who both recently needed emergency care. I could not have asked for better attention for either of the cats who had both suffered a traumatic event. Very impressed with both Monsieur Caron & Teresa's identification of the issues on both occasions, their willingness to explain everything fully, answer all questions & offer advice - all done with kindness, professionalism & a genuine love for animals. They also provide annual routine care for my 2 cats which is always completed professionally & with kind consideration to my nervous felines!

I am lucky to have 17yr old cat who I have had for most of her life. In recent years she has suffered from bowel and sickness problems and around two years ago a vet advised that it was probably bowel cancer and that due to her age it was not worth investigating further.
Her condition had been up and down since then but at the beginning of this year she seemed much worse and lost a lot of weight.
I took her to Medivet seriously expecting to have her put down.
However, the lovely vet, Nicholas Caron gave Rosie a thorough examination and said that it might be the feline version of IBS, which could be treatable and mean that Rosie could not only live, but have a better quality of life.
After some tests and treatment I am pleased and amazed to say that Rosie has put on weight, no longer has bowel or vomiting issues and continues to rule the roost over our younger, bigger, cats!
I cannot say enough how grateful I am to Nicholas for not writing Rosie off as just an old cat soon to pass like the previous vet I saw. He is a very genuine, kind and clever vet who looked after my Rosie and got her well when I though all hope was lost. I really did not think that she would still be with us now, and be so well! Thank you Nicholas!

“kind, caring staff”

I cannot praise highly enough the kind, caring team that work at Flitwick. We have mainly seen Teresa and she has always been professional, kind and caring particularly recently when we lost our little cat, Amber.

In my opinion the animal's welfare is always at the front of any decision that is made. This filters down from the nursing staff to the reception staff.

If I was a cat, I would want to be treated here.

“Praise for Medivet Flitwick Practice”

My wife and I cannot speak more highly of the diagnostics and treatment of our dog Vienna provided at Medivet Flitwick Practice. Veterinary Surgeon Nicolas and the Nursing Support Team were excellent. Nicolas clearly explained everything he was doing and why. There were no surprises with cost of diagnostics and treatment as clear estimates provided up front. There were no time constraints with visits, everyone took the time to thoroughly explain what was happening. Good follow-up communication by Team by phone whilst diagnostic tests were being carried out prior to Consultation Appointment. I would highly recommend this Vet Practice.

“Tilly Parsfield”

I noticed that my five month old puppy cocker spaniel, Tilly, refused her breakfast one morning and as this was so unusual and she was becoming more and more lethargic I took her to see Nicolas Caron as I was so worried. All her observations were normal but both Nicolas and I knew there was something very wrong. He booked her in the next morning for x-rays and scans and yes there was something lodged in her gut! Nicolas operated on her immediately and kept me informed all the way of her treatment and condition. She was a very poorly dog and she was very lucky to have her treatment so quickly! Just over a week after her surgery and now she is back to her bouncy self and thanks to Nicolas and his team I still have my gorgeous puppy Tilly. I can't thank them all enough! Nicolas had a genuine love for my dog and explained everything in detail. Thank you, thank you. X

“Thank you for you kindness”

My dog, Eddie was diagnosed with cancer at Medivet Flitwick in June and was sadly put to sleep this week. I am devastated at the loss of my best friend but I want to thank Medivet for their kindness, support and understanding. I trust Nick whole heartedly and he was so caring with Eddie. Jenny was also fantastic and showed us such kindness at an awful time. Thank you so much, with love from Mr and Mrs Fisher x

“Meeting the new Vets”

Always difficult after being with the same Vet for over 35 years, but we are very pleased to have Nick and Teresa looking after our latest, young Labrador.

“Have changed vets and would not recommend!!”

Receptionist no help and very rude. Seems like they have no care for the animals just want to make money. Would not recommend to anyone with animals


We take our responsibility to animal welfare very seriously and are committed to the well-being of our patients. We will never allow a patient to suffer, even if an owner cannot afford treatment, but unfortunately and regrettably this does not mean that we are in a position to carry out expensive surgical procedures if the owner cannot afford the costs. We also try to arrange for referral to Welfare organisations when owners cannot afford private care, but sadly this is not always possible and can be very frustrating both for our clients and us.

“Life Savers!”

My children and i are very grateful for the expertise and compassion shown by these vets and all other staff towards our rabbit. He was extremely poorly but got first class care and has now made a full recovery!

It is obvious to see that all staff genuinely care about the animals they treat. Everything was explained clearly, and even when the surgery was very busy our appointments were always thorough and never rushed. The care our pet received was superb and i would certainly recommend this vets.
