I have been with this vets for years and in my opinion I couldn't find a better vetinary practice. Gerhard is a wonderful vet, I can't praise him enough, and my dog loves going to see him.

Mr Gerhard Retief is an excellent vet, his manner is kind, respectful and trustworthy. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the animal is their first priority. We have been going to this clinic for ten years.

I have taken my labrador to this practice on numerous occasions. On each occasion not only the vets but all of the staff were exceptional. It is clear that they genuinely care about the welfare of the animals they treat and go always go the extra mile.

I had to get my 22 year old cat diagnosed after an issue with her jaw became obvious, but I was short of money. Bengi had Cancer. Jerard saw her, kept her in hospital for a week, treated & cared for her before eventually she had to be Euthanised. Jerard agreed to all this with only a small deposit. On the day she was Euthanised we didn't even discus funds. He allowed me to give my Bengi the best care & treatment available and allowed me to ensure a dignified, comfortable & pain-free end to my little lady's beautiful life. All the staff will do anything to further the welfare of the animals they see; never too busy to talk, advise, look at pictures or hold your hand while you fall apart. This branch operates with animal welfare as their drive, not as their income. Every visit has been the same, I could write an essay on my adoration of this practice and all the staff. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Louise Pugh.

Thorpe Vets are very compassionate, thourough, intelligent. They have great respect and care for the animals, they take good and thourough care of them. (They are also friendly and pleasent to the owners.) I really trust them to do the best for my pet who is very loved and important to me. They are far and away the best vets I have known and I have kept cats for 40 years so I have some experience of different vets. I strongly recommend them as giving pets truely exellent care.

Dr Gerard is an incredibly supportive, compassionate and understanding professional. I cannot recommend him highly enough. How do we say thank you for the care he has shown to our beautiful 9 year old moggy Lunar. She is home after surgery, and things are looking good. His understanding and support towards my daughter has been above and beyond I have now decided to change vets, on the basis of his care giving to my daughters cat.... And the surgery is on the other side of the city! Thank you just doesn't seen to be enough.

We have used Thorpe vets for 3 years now for our 4 dogs. Gerrad is fantastic with our dogs and so caring. He is always there to help with any problems we have and we cannot thank him enough. We entrust him with our dogs. We have total faith in Gerrad. He is the god of vets in our opinion. The whole team is fantastic and We feel we are valued customers by all the staff. We wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else. Best vets and team in Norfolk Gareth and Helen

Everyone is so friendly and caring. I feel like my cat is treated kindly and professionally. I've traveled around and in turn my animals have had 4 different vets and by far this one is the best.

We have to travel a long way to get to this practice since we moved house, but we will always come here as Gerhard and all the girls are lovely with Foster, our old Weimaraner. He gets very nervous and stressed but the team does everything they can to put him and us at ease They all seem to be genuine animal lovers and this shows in how Foster is treated. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone. Paul, Caroline and Foster
