I grew up in the area and went on to gain a degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery from Edinburgh University. I worked in a mixed practice in Lincolnshire and spent two years in a small animal practice in Lincoln before moving back home. At home, I’m kept busy by my Springer Spaniel Tibs, my three cats, Sophie, Atom and Ezra, my tortoise Tiggles, my terrapin Tommy, my eight chinchillas and lots of fish.

High standards of care. Practice is spotless and everyone attentive. We are always seen on time and there is never any rush. It gives us the opportunity to discuss care fully for our pets. We like the fact that diagnosis is data driven derived from tests and diagnostics. Really good all round.

The vets are so thorough and caring , they explain everything they are doing and why , I appreciate that. Nelly is always so excited to visit even after being extremely ill recently.

We always get a fantastic service here. Give great advice, genuinely care for the animals they treat and take into account the cost of treatments. We are moving away from the area and will be sorry to have to find another vets to take our beloved dogs. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Tuesday I had to make the heartbreaking decision to have our rat put to sleep. The staff were wonderful and gave George the same dignity as they would a cat or a dog and made a horrible time a little easier by acknowledging that to us he wasn’t just a rat but a member of our family. Thank you

Having moved house and so moving vets we went with the local medi vets as had been with them before. Our dog Ollie had to have a lump removed from between his shoulders . All the staff , receptionists , veterinary nurses and qualified veterinarians have been fantastic with their caring attitude and complete professionalism. We couldn’t of hoped for a better experience. As a pet owner your pet is part of your family, not just an animal and they totally understand that . Keep up the fantastic work and thank you 😊
