I have a Syberian Huskie who's over weight at 46kilos, who damaged his cruciate ligament, after contacting Paul he was brilliant he talked us through what he was going to do and how long it would take, l did not think my dog would be the same after this, but what a difference in Repairing his leg and Not having to cut his bones which is what we was told by other vets. My dog is now 100% his old self that is all thanks to the staff and vets. Also l would like to mention l did have my dog insured and yes they paid the bill, however l recently got a renewal notice and find that l was going to pay the price for claiming as it had doubled, so l went to astonlee's and asked for details on there own insurance and amazed l was going to be saving at least £20.00 per month, so please contact them they are there for your pets and you not just after your money.

The surgery offered at Astonlee was half the price of the bone sawing/metal implant offered by my own vet (and without the risks involved if it went wrong). I decided for myself to go to Astonlee because I couldn't bear the thought of the TPLO surgery. Its 18 months since the op and my dog is brilliant - took a bit of time for the limp to completely disappear but now back to normal with no bones sawed and no metal implants!

The most worthy 80 miles I have driven. We found astonlee when looking for a veterinary surgeon on the Internet, and I am so pleased we did. We looked at several types of surgery and this option was by far the best for all involved. The other choice included sawing the dogs bone and adding metal pins and double the recovery time. And this left the dog without a working knee! As I type this my 44 kilo American bulldog is asleep and healing well, 3 days after surgery with vet Paul, he is toe touching and able to get outside. I would recommend this veterinary hospital and procedure to anyone with a dog who has a cruciate rupture. They are very concise, informative, caring and helpful and best of all my dog is getting better and better!

My husband and I have been taking our cats to this practice for over 20 years and have always been pleased with the care and attention our cats have received whether just for routine vaccinations or out of hours emergencies (which we have had a few over the years). Highly recommend this practice and really pleased they have the International Cat Care Gold Standard as a Cat friendly clinic.

I've got to say during a very worrying time with my beloved dog, Tinkerbell',I can say we are both being treated with sensitivity. Tinkerbell is a very small King Charles who was a bit over weight. During the course of a few weeks she lost over half her body weight. She needed the toilet after every meal it was soft and yellow and she was always hungry. She has had many tests and treatments which has shown no fault and had no affect. However the senior vet has not given up and thanks to his vast experience has put her on steroids (as he has said he has seen this in the past with her breed and has had some good results with this method). So far, toilet still the same but not so often and Tink is slowly putting weight back on. So due to the vast and combined experience Astonlee have I 100% recommend them.
