A big massive thank you to all the Glenfield veterinary staff!!! We recently had to visit the Glenfield branch with our at the time very very poorly cat. We were very worried about our cat and his health as he was in a really bad state. The out of hours team and the doctors that looked at our cat were very reassuring and when we did visit during the week, the vets we saw were absolutely fantastic. They pit us at ease and even though we were worried, they completely made us feel better. We are so glad that we chose to take our cat to this vet. Again thank you so much :) Our little furball is back to his normal self once again.

A massive thank you to Mr Jones and the team at the Park Vets for everything you did for us when we brought our little dog Daisy in with a severe eye infection. We were absolutely devastated to hear how bad it was and that she was in real danger of losing her eye. We are absolutely delighted that with all the skill and care she received, her eye has been saved. It is lovely to see her a happy little dog again. We called in to the reception at Scraptoft Lane and although Daisy is not registered at the practise we were given an appointment that morning with no trouble at all. Wieneke lost no time in referring us to Mr Jones at Glenfield who fitted us in that morning during his busy clinic. Later that night when we got into difficulties putting her eye drops in, Ariel took her in and following consultation with Mr Jones operated on her eye that night. The nurses skilfully cared for her and Mr Jones operated on her eye again before she came home. Without everyone playing their vital part in the chain we know the outcome would not have been the success it was. We are enormously grateful to everyone. The service we received was of value beyond measure. To see her fit and happy again is what we wanted for her more than anything. I had previously made up my mind that if Daisy ever needed any specialist treatment I would not hesitate to bring her to the Park as I knew the specialists were available. When we came to Mr Jones I knew immediately that Daisy was in safe hands and that she was with someone who really knew what he was talking about. He told us immediately what the problem was and sensitively worked through a solution we could all manage. I can not believe since we have been how many people have recommended Mr Jones and all have been delighted with what he has done . One lady who recommended Mr Jones also told me who not to go to as she had not had such service there. It seemed, as if we should still have needed it, that we were being given absolute assurance we had brought Daisy to the right place. I can not believe how fortunate we have been. Thank you all for your care, skill, dedication and for sharing our enjoyment at seeing Daisy fit and happy again. Everyone who knows her comments on the transformation. Without you all we know beyond a doubt the outcome would not have been the happy one it is and are truly grateful to you all.

A lovely place. All pets are truly cared for from the bottom of their hearts. I had no qualms about leaving our Yorkie for her eye op. Staff were very reassuring and she was a pampered pooch with cooked chicken for tea. Our dog had formed cataracts quite quickly and became blind in both eyes. It was sad to see her so down and bumping into things. However Gareth Jones managed to get her vision back and now we have our happy, playful girl back. It has been such a life changing experience for all of the family and we are forever grateful for everyone at the practice. I cannot recommend this place enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My pet dog charlie went blind due to diabetes, Mr Jones diagnosed cataracts. Mr Jones did a wonderful job, operating on charlie and giving him his sight back.All this was very expensive, i was covered for £2500 on insurance but i did have to pay nearly another £1000 on top, my disappointment on this is the charges for aftercare should be free, you only get 1 post op check for free and every check after that is £84. I have cancelled another future check but will go back if i feel charlie needs any more help

Vet Response

Thank you so much for the review, it's wonderful that Charlie can now can see again after being blind with cataracts. We take on board your comments. Cataract surgery is complicated and, unfortunately, not cheap. Some aftercare is included in the operation fee, but charged on-going checks are advisable to watch out for certain complications. We hope Charlie continues to do well. Please feel free to ring Mr Jones if you would like to discuss anything with him.

3 weeks ago we visited The Park Group at Glenfield on referral from our local Vets4Pets. Our little Bichon Frise Indy had an Indolent Eye Ulcer. He had already had 2 Karetectomy operations at our local Vets4Pets to no avail. It was recommended that Indy had a third but deeper Karetectomy with an ophthalmic specialist. This was undertaken by The Park Group at Glenfield. After 2 weeks Indy was fully healed and 1 week later he is fully returned to his bouncy self. We were very impressed with the efficiency of the Admin. staff as well as the kindness of the nurses and the skill of the surgeon(s). Everything was explained to us every step of the way. We would definitely use this group again.

I wanted to express my feelings for this practice as its helped us out on 2 emergencies with our German Shephard x Japanese Akita. Both times it happened on a Sunday where we needed the out of hours vet to see our dog. They have been great from start to finish. Both times our dog needed an operation due to him rupturing his cruciate ligament and they managed to get him booked in within 3 days of us seeing them. They have a great team there who are so caring for all animals there, professional and explain things really well. Prices like anything like this isn't cheap but with the skills of the vets such as Mr Morris - you get what you pay for. We are so pleased with our dogs progress and never worry about having to take him to the vets. Keep up the good work all. Thank you.

Our german shepherd, Tinky, recently appeared to have an infection in her right eye. After taking her to our own vet, on two occasions, with her eye worsening and being charged an immense amount of money, I insisted they refer her to an eye specialist. We were given an appointment to see Gareth Jones at the Glenfield practice. Immediately he diagnosed her with Myositis (inflamation of the muscles which was causing her eyes to bulge, the vessel underneath her right eye had been forced outside her eye and there was a danger of this bursting and her losing her sight). Although not good news for us, Gareth was so good with her, and gave Tinks an immediate injection of steroids. There was an instant improvement with her eye. She's still not quite herself with being on steroids, but we are so thankful for her finally having the treatment she needed. He was so knowledgeable and informative and other staff who also saw her, so caring. Keep up the good work.

I came home from work last Tuesday and my cat had obviously been in a fight. He had two huge, puss filled chunks out of his face. I immediately called Park Glenfield to see if they could see him. They had no appointments but said they would be able to fit him in as it was an emergency. We arrived at about 6.30pm and were seen within minutes. Even on his best day, my cat hates strangers touching him. He usually hisses and growls at vets when try to do anything. As soon as we took him out of his carrier ,the vet was very delicate with him and gave him loads of fuss whilst checking his wounds. I've never seen him respond so well to a stranger before! He prescribed us medication to treat the infection as well as a cone so he couldn't scratch it. We were also given advice on how to clean the wounds and administer the medication - heating up Tuna and putting the meds in it. We followed the advice and he is back to normal again. I've told everyone at work to use this vets as this is the best I've ever known. We've already moved our cats records over and have booked his annual boosters to be done here.

In June 2014 my cat, TC, arrived home with a scratched eye. My local vets were good and helped initially but when they noticed there was more going on at the back of the eye they recommended Gareth Jones at The Park Vets. At this point it looked impossible to save TC's eye as the infection that had set in was severe, but with some intensive treatment and medication that was newly available, he turned a corner and was given the 'all clear' by Mark Russon today. Between them, Gareth and Mark saved TC's eye and I really can't thank them enough!
