The staff at this establishment are very professional, helpful and friendly. They saved my dogs life!. Without them my dog would surely have died. What clients must remember is that this is an animal hospital that deals with emergencies. They are the veterinary surgery for Merseyside Police, I have witnessed it myself when my dog was admitted for emergency care. I don't mind waiting for the dog that saves other lives to be seen to as they deserve to go first anyway. Outstanding performance by "Alder vets", not just Medivet. I'm so glad this place exists and a massive thankyou to all the staff who "live" there and Pedro for making the decision to keep him in, always doing their best for our beloved friends in desperate need!. Edit: twice they've saved my cats sight from eye ulcers from foreign objects. Faultless service. Thanks again! Anyone reading this, if you don't have insurance for your pets I highly recommend that you take a few quid out each month and buy a policy. Hopefully you'll never need to use it but I PROMISE you that you'll be grateful when you do need it, especially when the bill comes to THOUSANDS. ALWAYS get blood tests done and that way you'll find out exactly what's wrong without any faff at the pets expense. Insurers will make sure that everything goes clockwork because if it doesn't it costs the vet. They don't pay for stuff that isn't needed or warranted.

our rescue dog Poppy went into Medivet last night after being sick repeatedly. the staff here were so helpful & kind with us and with Poppy. the junior nurse who worked that night was absolutely brilliant in keeping Poppy calm as well as making us laugh. Cara who was the vet on at the time was so informative & explained exactly what was going to happen. she didnt rush us at all. going back to collect her today, the ladies on reception again were incredibly kind and attentive. Poppy is back home now and although she still isnt happy she went into the vets, we know she was looked after incredibly. thank you to all the staff. ❤️🐶

I just want to thank Alder vets and their staff for showing such care and compassion after having to having to say goodnight to both of my pups within 4 months. With Tia the vet and vetinary nurse came out and although i couldn't make the decision there and then to let her go they returned almost straight a away after I called them back x I chose individual cremation and Tia was came home shortly after. Not long after Leo was diagnosed with lymphoma and after a short battle i knew it was time to let him go, he was so tired 😞, we booked a date in however Leo had other ideas, and I had to call the vet and ask if they could come earlier, although it was after hours they agreed and arrived after a couple of hours, it gave us time to spend with him and say goodbye, and I held him until he went to sleep, the vet and nurse showed such compassion and gave us time afterwards to sit with him, the nurse also offered to do a print of his paw for me which i thought was lovely x waiting for him to come home is so hard but I came in from work yesterday to a sympathy card from all the staff at Alder vets, and inside were forget me not seeds.It was so touching, it showed that the staff really care about their patients and owners, I will definitely be planting them and thinking of my 2 when they flourish, I can't thank the staff enough for this gesture and the kindness they have shown xx

I would highly recommend Alderpets! My cat Romeo was hit by a car and in a very bad way! Broken bones and a ruptured bladder.... As soon as we arrived Mateji the night vet got to work, x-ray and surgery straight away! With his talent and passion for animals, Romeo's life was saved.... Can't thank Mateji and Leanne the nurse enough.... I'm so happy I have my fur baby home and on the mend x
