Sadly my dog was wrongly diagnosed with kennel cough and treated for such despite showing other symptoms including a heart rate of 200 and resps in excess of 60. He was taken in as an emergency at 2am and by 9am at a different vet heart failure was picked up immediately and fast action to drain fluid from his lungs. Sadly despite trying this twice it was too late and he sadly died 2 days later. Although of course this may well of been the case anyway i feel the distress he was in and my own distress at describing this most unusual behaviour more questions /investigations should have taken place. I honestly feel that because it was the middle of the night the treatment recieved was rushed and most definitely not adequate
Vet ResponseDear Ms Davies-Sond Thank you for your review though, as you can imagine, we are somewhat disappointed with your conclusions. We believe the consultation was somewhat different to your review as follows: Our vet said that Kennel cough was a possibility only - Stanley was running a temperature which could have been consistent with an infection. She particularly noted there was no heart murmur at presentation and Stanley's colour and refill time were normal, all signs we check when examining coughing dogs in case of heart disease. At that time Stanley's heart rate was 148 per minute not 200. Our vet offered a full work up including xrays, which you declined and she warned that further investigation and long term treatment would be needed as soon as possible, the next morning, at your own practice. We think your review is unfair as our vet did not have the opportunity to do any more investigation to be able to come to a diagnosis. The vet gave antibiotics for the temperature and painkillers to help Stanley through till the next morning. In light of the above we think that you might withdraw your review. Many thanks

On Tuesday my puppy was taken seriously ill in immensense panic I called Julia's Flitwick branch and explained what was going on immediately Stephanie called Julia who asked me to bring my puppy in to Barton straight away. When I arrived I was taken through where he was examined the vet who examined my Marlo (Linda I think) decided it was best if Marlo was immediately admitted as he was in a very potentially serious condition. I was of course upset by this but Linda had so much compassion and empathy and talked me through every step and test Marlo would be going through. She comforted me massively. To cut a long story short Marlo was kept in for a few days but Julia and her team kept me up to speed every step of the way and got my pup back to health. THANKYOU JULIA AND CO!!!!! Ryan

Warm welcome, lovely staff. Penny my Westie does not like the injection in her nose, they kept notes from a previous visit, got a muzzle and were kind to us both when my laid back little westie got miffed and growley. Meds administered all went well.

Boness staff are caring, friendly and extremely helpful. They are knowledgeable in their fields. Have never had a problem with them.

Nurses clear in their explanation of what was going to happen (and what did happen), knowledgeable of how my dog might be when I got him home - and made just the right amount of fuss of him so he (and I) felt reassured. Fianlly, and perhaps most importantly, the operation seems to have been a total success with no unexpected problems!
