Thorpe Vets are very compassionate, thourough, intelligent. They have great respect and care for the animals, they take good and thourough care of them. (They are also friendly and pleasent to the owners.) I really trust them to do the best for my pet who is very loved and important to me.
They are far and away the best vets I have known and I have kept cats for 40 years so I have some experience of different vets.
I strongly recommend them as giving pets truely exellent care.

Dr Gerard is an incredibly supportive, compassionate and understanding professional. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
How do we say thank you for the care he has shown to our beautiful 9 year old moggy Lunar. She is home after surgery, and things are looking good. His understanding and support towards my daughter has been above and beyond
I have now decided to change vets, on the basis of his care giving to my daughters cat.... And the surgery is on the other side of the city!
Thank you just doesn't seen to be enough.

We have used Thorpe vets for 3 years now for our 4 dogs. Gerrad is fantastic with our dogs and so caring. He is always there to help with any problems we have and we cannot thank him enough. We entrust him with our dogs. We have total faith in Gerrad. He is the god of vets in our opinion. The whole team is fantastic and We feel we are valued customers by all the staff. We wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else.
Best vets and team in Norfolk

Everyone is so friendly and caring. I feel like my cat is treated kindly and professionally. I've traveled around and in turn my animals have had 4 different vets and by far this one is the best.

We have to travel a long way to get to this practice since we moved house, but we will always come here as Gerhard and all the girls are lovely with Foster, our old Weimaraner. He gets very nervous and stressed but the team does everything they can to put him and us at ease
They all seem to be genuine animal lovers and this shows in how Foster is treated.
I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

It is rare indeed to meet a team of people all of whom are so good at what they do. This is not simply a commercial practice, charging for each and every visit, but a team that carries the welfare of your pet as the guiding principle of their approach and philosophy.
During my many visits, with my little Dachshund, Mickey, who had an eye problem, Gerhard Retief worked hard, patiently and sympathetically, always taking the time to explain carefully the situation to me in an understandable manner.
Following his own instinct Mickey always felt completely safe in his care.
When Mickey was run over I rushed him to the Thorp Surgery where Gerhard and his team simply exploded into action. After a fifteen minute battle to save his life, even Gerhard and his team of three others were unable to save him, such were the extent of his injuries, but my goodness... how they tried.
You may absolutely take my word for it that your pet will be cared for with the very highest level of care. How fortunate I feel to have chosen them in the first place. Gerhard has my permission to give my name to anybody who might wish to take contact with me directly for a personal reference.

I cannot praise everyone at this practice enough. Everyone is extremely friendly and professional. You get the feeling that everyone who works there is a genuine animal lover, which I feel always puts me at ease as a sometimes over anxious owner of 2 dogs and 1 cat.

I have been with Gerhard and Thorpe Vet's for 7/8 years since I have had my two rescue cats, through the years apart from the minor scrapes the cats have got into, Suzi has had a major accident and another time a dislocated leg and Milo has an ongoing eye infection. On all occasions the best treatment has been implemented swiftly and appointments have always been available quickly with clear explanations of the issue/s and treatments being given.
Neither cat are that excited about heading to the vets and Milo imparticular as a rescue kitten was very stressed in the first couple of years, he has become much calmer and easier at the vet's, and one of the reasons I put this change down to is that Gerhard and the team of nurses are very calming and affectionate, which I think both cats have become accustomed to and more trusting of the vets, so that even though a vet visit isn't top of the list of things to do for a cat, the relaxed and warm nature of the staff makes this a much better & friendly environment.
I would and have recommended Thorpe Vets to friends & family.

Gerard is an exceptional vet, very knowledgeable and skilled but he combines it with a gentle caring approach with the animals and he reassures people and pets alike! The front office staff are freindly and efficient. This practice offers a wonderful service and I highly recommend them
