5 Stars - 06-09-2016 - Isobel

My wife and I rescued a Mastiff cross ( Isobel ) from the RSPCA back in 2013. Unfortunately Isobel had, had a very bad start to life and somewhere had been abused both physically and we think mentally. When we adopted Isobel we knew she suffered with her rear right leg but it wasn't until eighteen months later and approximately £5000 pounds lighter we found Kydd and Kydd who identified the exact problem and promptly put it right. This practice is one of only two professional animal care centers we visited ( 16 in total ) over the eighteen months where from the first telephone call my wife and I were put at ease and believed it was genuinely all about our dogs welfare. David Kydd was available 24 hours a day after Isobels major surgery which we can confirm having had to call and receive calls regarding her welfare and current condition. David performed an operation for cruciate and lateral ligament repair and using the most up to date technology ( 3D printing ) a TTA to repair and replace her knee joint. This practice is second to none, all the staff are caring, considerate look after the animals like they are family. Questions are answered in a way that is easy to understand and puts you at ease, at no time did we feel under pressure to leave because there was someone else waiting with a booked appointment. Two weeks ago I needed to call David to discuss a problem we had with Isobel that may or may not have been a recurrence of the original operation. This call was after three visits to our own vet who could not diagnose the problem Isobel had. One telephone call to discuss the original names of various pain relief Isobel had been prescribed after the operation found us with an emergency appointment early the next morning for a look at Izzy. After an examination, X-ray, blood tests and a couple of other general checks Izzy was back at home and 48 hours later with prescribed medication was back to her crazy self the dog we love. I'm not sure what awards there are but all of the staff here deserve some recognition for thier devotion to the cause of animal welfare. Thank you all so very much and a massive thank you to Davids wife who must be a Saint to put up with his total dedication. Thank you all

We recently had two female rabbits spayed and we found the whole experience was dealt with so professionally. We had to separate our rabbits at 6 months as one of them was attacking and biting the other one and it became clear they needed to be spayed! The problem is now totally resolved and they are friendly towards each other again. The vets and nurses were excellent and we felt very well supported when we had concerns about their progress after the operation. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice.

To all the Staff at Kydd & Kydd Thank you for all your help and love with Tegan. Without your excellent care and attention she would never have made such good progress. Also to David Many thanks for all the care & attention you have given Tegan. I think she will make good progress from now on, which is all down to your skill. We are very grateful. From Fiona & Tegan (Rennie)

I cannot say enough about the wonderful care our two year old dalmatian, Elmo, has had under David and the superb team at Kydd & Kydd! He recently underwent cruciate surgery (his second operation in less than a year); not only was David extremely thorough and careful in explaining the details of the operation, but he has gone on to follow Elmo up extremely closely to ensure his recovery is as smooth as possible. I have been amazed at how quickly our spotty boy has gone from strength to strength, and now would not take him anywhere else for treatment. This superb team care for each animal that comes through the door as if it were their own! Thank you!!"

You could not have handled this better. Our dog had a serious injury, requiring considerable expense in time and money to fix. You handled this impeccably, making the right recommendations quickly, explaining everything in a way we can understand, emphasising important things that we MUST do, and assisting with the insurance claims. I simply cannot think of how, realistically, you could have done anything better. Top marks!

I seriously recommend this vet. I love them all!

5 Stars - 12-11-2013 - Karina & Kuro

From day 1 we have always felt treated professionally and at high standards. The vets are highly knowledgeable and have answers to all our questions. My dog Kuro-Scottish Terrier has had some incidents in the past, from eating a stone and needing surgery to a bee stung! Their reply has been always fast and assertive. This gives us peace of mind because we are sure our little doggie is always in good hands! Thank you!

My animals, past and present, are and were so lucky to have the best of care on their doorstep. I have been using Kydd and Kydd for 40 years and wouldn't go anywhere else.

I have been a client of Kydd & Kydd for over 20 years and would not entrust my dogs'care to anyone else. They are totally professional and have a friendly approach to their clients whilst giving any animal needing their help the very best care at all times.

I have got to know the vets and nurses at Kydd & Kydd very well as i had a very sick dog for many years who had bad elbow dysplasia. David Kydd and his staff were absolutely fantastic. Every time i would ring up with a problem i received immediate attention. It is the consistency of a family run practice, and seeing the same vet that is worth its weight in gold.
