My 3 year old cat Dexter has just spent the past 8 days at LVC (Birch Tree Carnforth over the weekend) being treated for a urinary blockage. He has had outstanding treatment and the utmost care taken. He is well on his way to recovery - all thanks to their swift treatment. James and his team are an excellent veterinary team - would definitely recommend them.

I moved to LVC about 10 years ago after being very unhappy with the treatment my dog was receiving at my previous vet. From my very first appointment I was overwhelmed with the kindness and understanding we got. I have been taking my dogs to LVC ever since and can't recommend them highly enough.

My animals have been registered with James and his team since I moved here in 2002 when other people recommended him to me. Over the past 13 years I have always found the practice to be professional and courteous, always explaining terms in words I can understand and always showing respect for my animals. My dog and cat have no hesitation in visiting and neither do I. Well done to everyone

LVC have been absolutely excellent in the care of our cat, Alice. When we first got Alice in Sept 14 she had a bad virus so it was a bit touch and go. LVC were very thorough, took an interest, always caring, and made sure Alice got the best treatment. We also had Alice neutered recently and the staff explained to us exactly how we should look after her whilst she recovered. All of the practice staff have been great and are always willing to answer questions and explain any treatments thoroughly, providing the best advice. We would like to thank all the staff and would have no hesitation in recommending LVC.

My two cats have been registered with this vet centre since they were rescue cats at Animal Care. The LVC team have all been wonderful, steering us first time cat owners through checkups, vaccinations, spaying and treatments. All of the staff have been friendly, professional and caring and the weekend/evening opening times make it MUCH easier for us to get our pusses booked in for timely appointments. Top marks LVC!

I have used LVC for many years and would recommend them for the outstanding service they provide. James, Helen and all the staff have been wonderful over the last nine months caring for my beloved Evie, and when it was time for us to say 'goodbye' they showed such compassion and sympathy, giving us all the time we needed with her.

With 2 elderly 'rescue cats' Insurance was not an option so we accepted the 'Risk'! Two years ago both cats had Thyroid operations and were successfully operated on. A year later poor Mishca's second thyroid had to be treated with medication. When we took her to LVC she was at deaths door but because of the care she received she is now back to her 'Perky self' At this harrowing time we were treated with sensitivity and kindness by all the staff! In times of trouble we are grateful to know that LVC would care for our 'Girls'!

I first went to LVC when I had an ill pet rat, having visited numerous local vets with rats and found they did not know the animals' needs at all. At LVC I saw a vet who had the expertise to know how to help. Since then, I've taken cats and dogs there and never been less than completely satisfied. I currently have a rescue dog who is petrified of strangers and who shakes as soon as she enters the waiting area. However, the vets and nurses I've seen with her do their absolute utmost to make the situation as stress-free as it's possible to be. As well as quality care, the vets I see always know my pets and their history, which always helps if there are ongoing problems. I've been to LVC for everything from emergencies (one dog tore her leg on barbed wire and they fitted me in immediately) to long-term conditions and always been happy, because my pets got the care they deserved. End-of-life care is also excellent, and my experience of saying goodbye to an elderly cat at LVC was as positive as it could possibly be made. In all, there is nowhere else I would take my pets. I admit I am incredibly fussy as they are my family, so the fact that I would recommend LVC to anyone is testament to how wonderful I think the staff are. I have a lot of experience with vets, both locally and when I have lived elsewhere, and I've never found one practice I've been this happy with.
