Staff were lovely and friendly. Our first time for a second opinion on price for our cats teeth to be extracted, and it came in as the cheapest price. Will be transferring to the Benfleet branch from now. Thank you.

During this difficult time, your system of collecting animals from owners in car park, & bringing them back , works brilliantly. Plus nice attitude & expertise. Keep it up & thanks.

I phoned regarding an appointment for my two guinea pigs who desperately needed their nails trimmed but I’d been unable to book in to their usual vets as it was deemed ‘not an emergency’, however their nails had grown so long it was starting to affect their quality of life. So I phoned the surgery after recommendation from my parents and the lovely lady on the phone was able to book me in that very day! So I now have two very happy piggies that I know are now safe and sound and won’t have any incidences with long nails! So I think Velma and Willow have found their new surgery!

They have the pet at heart, and not the cost! They give you all the options and all the costs and let you decide. You never feel you have been given one option and one cost.
