In 2019 we both also took partnership of Medivet Benfleet. Professionally, I have an interest in exotics, laser surgery including BOAS airway surgery and reconstructive surgery. At home I have two naughty welsh springer spaniels, Fen and Rupert, two older moggies, Tiny Cat and Jasper, and two identical abyssinian kittens, James and Dorian.

Ian the vet explained everything to us took his time to answer all questions I bought my puppy in January and she was one on the 9th of August she has had the same problem since we purchased her and I had taken her to the vets I was registered with on a few occasions and they have not managed to take the time to try and resolve the problem but just keep prescribing the same treatment. Mollie is so much more settled and not crying in pain thank you
