They are great! I found them to be the best in the surrounding area. Always happy to help, polite, straight to the point. Been there a few times with dogs and cats and they never disappointed me. Explained everything step by step about taking a pet abroad before we moved away. Love them.

We had the heartbreaking experience of having to have our beloved cat Joey put to sleep. We were highly impressed with the compassion, knowledge, advice and aftercare of all the staff involved at such a difficult time. We have since registered our other 4 cats at Medivet and have had one cat booked in for detangling as she is a long hair cat and were equally impressed with the service we received Jason & Pamela Dallimore.

We were seen very quickly when we came in with our little elderly dog in an emergency. The vet was calm, knowledgeable and kind in a difficult situation. The nurse and reception staff were also helpful and kind. We received a lovely sympathy card a few days later which was really thoughtful.
