Took my jrt on friday for anal gland removal, after recommendations from my normal vet due to recurring infections and problems. First class service, regular update on phone through out day on post op, night staff telephone me next morning on how he had done through night, how many cuddles , and what he was doing at that precise time. On discharge all after care explained very well.wound site very clean and neat. door opened and my dog came through wagging tail, i was shocked after this operation. Took him home today and he doing fab, no pain or problems. Anal gland removal can be tricky operation, but i recommend this practice for the procedure .

First met Peter when he first opened Vets 4 Pets and came out to my home to put to sleep my old dog. We were not even registered with the practice. So when we got our new dog we came and registered. The care has been second to none and Peter really got to know our Bobby over the past 14 years(he was a rescue dog). Likewise Bobby got to know him. Bobby was coming to the end of his life and now nearly 16 years old. and was seeing Peter on a regular basis with his medication. Then all of a sudden Bobbys condition got worse and we knew the time had come. Rang the vets on the Friday asking for a home visit to be told they do not do home visits. Then they said they could come out the following Wednesday. Why? is because the practice is now getting too big? Feel truly let down. To do home visits when first starting up whether your dog was registered or not was not a problem. We always believe that when the time comes to say good bye to your dog it is done in its own home environment surrounded by familiar things. Needless to say we will be transferring our other dog onto another practice. We rang Abbey Vets Saturday morning at 9 a.m. explained how we had been let down by our vet of 12 years or so. By 9.45 a.m. we had a visit from the vet and nurse.So kind and compassionate. They were brilliant. Need to look at your "End of Life " policy Peter or you will lose other clients
Vet ResponseDear Janet, I'm so sorry that I wasn't able to arrange to do a home visit for Bobby, we had issues with getting a vet available to leave the practice. If it could have been possible to cover the workload and hospital patients we had in, you know that I would have come out. Home visits aren't always easy to arrange, especially at short notice due to the 24 hour care needs of looking after the hospitalised patients, some of whom are critically ill, and I am truly sorry we couldn't arrange this for you at this upsetting time. It's really upset me personally that I couldn't be there for him and it's really upset me that you feel let down, as that's the last thing I would ever want after all these years. If I could change this situation, I would in a heartbeat. Peter

I note a previous comment regarding waiting times, I always see Peter and yes I usually have to wait a little past my booked time, for me this is not a problem because I understand that sometimes some pets and owners need that extra time and the vets never rush you out of the surgery. This worked well for me recently when I had a 13 month old very poorly dog. I had three days, of my dog having seizures and not recovering, being very agitated, frustrated and confused for the full 3 days with hardly minutes is respite. When I phoned the vets there was always genuine concern, I was allowed to take my dog in immediately to see a vet, one night at 22:30 the vet on duty spoke and advised me me over the phone so I didn't have to take her out, there are not a lot of vets that will help and advised without a consultation for you to pay for. Sadly on the third day after speaking to a couple of different vets over previous day's it was decided that Luna was not going to fully recover and the kindest thing to do would be to put her to sleep. The vet considered our feelings and left us alone in the room to spend some time with her. Not only was Luna's care a consideration but so were we. I always feel fully informed about my pets condition, everything always fully explained and have 100% confidence in Vet4pets, Barnsley. Keep up the fantastic work every member of staff you are a credit to vetenary care and a huge thank you for everything you have done for my pets and us over the last 14 years.
Vet ResponseThank you

Barnsley Vets4Pets have always provided me and my pets (2 Cats Minstrel and Crystal) with an excellent service. They have been kind and curteous each time I've visited and shown my animals the respect and kindness I would expect them to receive. I would not hesitate to recommend Barnsley Vets4Pets especially with the level of service I have received to date. Peter was particularly kind and sympathetic when I had to have Minstrel put to sleep. It was the hardest decision I had to make on behalf of another living creature but Peter gave me the time to say goodbye to her. The reception staff were also marvellous. I called them a day or two days after as I'd realised that Minstrel's name had always been mis-spelled and I was arranging to have her ashes returned in a casket and wanted to ensure that the name was spelt correctly when she came back to me. I felt that they may feel I was being a little silly but they totally understood and ensured that the name was correct. It's these little things that mean the most as much as the big things. All these things happened almost 3 years ago and I still remember which goes to show how much of an impact Barnsley Vets4Pets made at that time.
Vet ResponseThank you for your kind words, it is much appreciated, Peter.

waiting time is a challenge for pets and people alike. Time and again pets come after us and leave before us. Maybe a better idea would be to try drawing lots with all the other poor souls but then i'd probably end up with short straw and have usual 45 minutes wait
Vet ResponseDear Peter, I'm sorry to hear you have had long waiting times when visiting the practice. We try hard to run to time and try to see people in order of their appointments rather than the time they arrive, I apologise if this means other clients are seen before you. We do understand that the appointments can run behind because we are so busy and a large portion of our work is of an urgent nature, I understand that we do regularly slip behind on times, especially at the end of a busy consultation surgery. If you have the freedom to choose a time to book, I can recommend booking at the start of our consulting surgeries, which would be 0830, 1100, 1400 and 1600. I realise that with the workload we have, it is not possible to guarantee that there won't be a wait, but it should help. The majority of our appointments are seen within 9 minutes of the allocated time, recently however we have been hit by serious IT issues along with an increase in new client registrations, and workload. We will continue to work on trying to achieve shorter waiting times, and I hope in the future you are not kept waiting. Kind regards Peter Richards MRCVS
