I have been a client for over twenty years with a number of cats and would recommend this practice to anyone.Reception staff/nurses are welcoming, helpful and efficient. Vetinary standards are high and time is given to discuss treatment and options. This personal/professional ethos has always been the case and I hope that it continues after the retirement of John Borragio. True it can be expensive (it does seem to have gone up more since the Medivet takeover) but that seems to be the case everywhere and I have always felt the vets are aware of this and keep the cost as low as possible. Thank you.

We use Medivet mainly due to it being so close to home and our cats do not travel well. The vets and staff are very good as well. The main critiscm I have is the prices which are so high. Although my cats do have insurance we still have to pay any bills below the £100 excess, which most are for general stuff such as annual boosters, worming etc. But I feel that the prices which seem to keep rising almost each time are becoming out of reach for many people and even with insurance cover you still have to pay the bill up front whilst waiting for the claims process.

Sophie was our cat aged 16 years. On the morning of 18 January 2016 we knew the time had come to say goodbye. Sophie was listless and unable to support herself when standing. She had been running around the day before as though a kitten. Prior to this she had slowed down and looked her age. The vet agreed that Sophie was close to the end and agreed induced sleep was the kindest thing we could do for her. Needless to say we were distraught. There was no pressure from the vet to hurry up and go. We were asked what arrangements we had in mind after Sophie had passed away. Again no pressure. Sophie had a private cremation. The staff at Medivet could not have been kinder. The Waiting Room was full of empathy and a box of tissues provided by the staff. Having dealt with the death and funeral arrangements for our parents, Sophie was given the same dignity and respect for the on-going care and end of life decisions she received at Medivet Birstall for Sophie. Thank you to all concerned.

Dear Mr Borrajo & Team So often we are quick to note bad service these days so I think its only fair to mention when great service has been given! I visited the surgery last night with my cat Charlie and I have to say how happy I am that we have been able to return to this veterinary practice. Everybody from Clare who I spoke with to book the appointment, to Teresa the wonderful vet, and I believe Abigail who so kindly assisted were great! The level of care and compassion each one of the team offered us had completely excelled any that we had been offered in a vets before. We were offered information, about some concerns we had previously had about a specific condition, that we had never had explained to us from other practices before and it really helped put our minds at rest. Even to the genuine warm shown to our beloved cat before we left from the team working around the practice and behind the counter was lovely. I will have no hesitation in recommending your surgery to family and friends. Thanks again for the wonderful job that you do!

On arrival you are always greeted by the warm and friendly client service team all of whom know your pet personally. My dog has been seeing Pedro and I have received a thoroughly professional, courteous and outstanding service. It was quite a complex case but I was provided with excellent information and choices throughout and the concern for my dog was exceptional. Along with the team Pedro has breathed new life into my dog and she appears 3-4 years younger after being very poorly. I would highly recommend this Veterinary Practise. Thanks

Over the years we have taken our cats to this Practice. The nurses and vets have always shown kindness and compassion. I would recommend this Practice to family and friends.

During the past 7 months Mr Borrajo has been caring for our cat Sulzer the time,care and dedication shown to us by him has been fantastic. He did everything he could to find out what was wrong with him but drew the line when he thought it would be too much for Sulzer because of his age.Sadly Sulzer passed away on Sunday the 4th of March and we miss him. We received a lovely card from the practice which we thought was a lovely gesture.I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice as they are all very kind and caring and we would like to thank them for all their care and attention. Thank You Mrs M McLaughlin/Mrs D Smith
