After my young guinea pig became ill I contacted Companion Care at Scarborough who told me to take her straight in. The vet, Joao Alves could not have shown more care or understanding. He explained everything very clearly. He treated my guinea pig with 4 injections and gave me instructions on what to do until the next morning when he wanted to see her again. I duly took her back and he repeated the treatment but explained she was still very poorly and to take her back the next day. I did this but, unfortunately, the outcome wasn't as we had all hoped for as septicemia had set in and my guinea lost her fight. It was so obvious that Joao was as upset and disappointed as me and I will always be grateful for his perseverance and help. Every member of staff I met were friendly, helpful and professional. Thank you all for showing you really care.

We cannot thank Joao and all the wonderful staff at Companion Care Scarborough enough for the excellent care and advice we have been given since we welcomed Harvey, our "rescued" 15month old Sprocker, into our home. We have been given so much help, and much needed guidance in helping Harvey settle with his new family. At no time have we felt rushed and Harvey has been treated with so much care and commitment to his welfare. Today Joao even spent half an hour helping with toy suggestions. (Very surprised to read earlier comment regarding Joao being money orientated - we have never found this, in fact we have just Joined a great scheme giving Harvey lifelong boosters for £99.00!!) Thanks again guys

after hearing good reviews, was very very disappointed when I made a first appointment with this vet. Everything about the Practice is good but the vet himself is hard to understand, VERY expensive. I got a second opionion on the procedure he estimated for and it was significantly cheaper with a fantastic result, with my own vet. You definitely pay for open 7 days a week.The vet however, is money orientated and I will stick to my local vet thank you.. Not recommended.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Joao and all the staff at Companion Care in scarborough for the care and compassion shown when we had to make the very difficult decision to have our beloved springer spaniel, Tilly, put to sleep. From the first time Joao met her he treated her as if she was his own. Despite being a timid girl at our previous vets, she used to nuzzle his cheek when she went in to see him. He never forced her to go on the table and would usually end up on his knees on the floor with her. We knew on that last morning what the probable outcome would be as she had been a poorly girl for a long time. Joao saw her as soon as we arrived and gently explained our choices. We knew what we had to do, for Tilly's sake, but it was still so difficult. Joao gave her a sedative so she wasn't frightened and left us to say our private goodbyes. He couldn't have been kinder and we are so pleased that we found a vet who really cared about our precious "baby girl".

Our Pet dog Brynnie was involved in a terrible accident on our farm lane. He needed urgent medical attention to save his life. He was bruised, battered, several cuts and in shock, X-rays and scans showed he had serious internal injuries also. The vets Joao Alves and Sandra Pera who are really lovely friendly people explained everything to us and showed us the x-rays so we knew exactly what the risks were before they performed the operation on Brynnie. It was touch and go as the internal injuries affected his liver, spleen and part of his stomach had passed through a split diaphragm and was pressing against his lung which was filling with fluid. The entire staff at the practice were wonderful and supportive, all the nurses and the reception staff were fantastic in their care for us too. I am happy to say because of the expert care of them all, we still have our wonderful little Brynnie. His scars have almost healed and he his now wagging his twisted little tail again. He has still to wear his cone to stop him getting at his scars but he is fine. Without saying, it was Joao and Sandra's expertise with the help of the marvellous nurses that saved out little Brynnie's life. To all the practice, we are deeply indebted to all of you, thanks a million times. The ongoing care has been just superb, any worries whatsoever we have or had, we go straight back and Joao and Sandra are always there to help and reassure us. Graham, Jean and Luci Thirkill and the little furries, Brynnie, Winnie and Molly

We cannot praise Joao and his team enough for the genuine care and attention shown to us and our little Miniature Schnauzer Pup 'Monty' during his recent ill health and untimely death. They were all very caring and considerate going beyond their call of duty. We certainly recommend this vet practice.
