Symptom Checker

If you’re not sure whether your pet needs to see a vet, our quick and easy Symptom Checker can help. Answer a few simple questions about the signs of illness your pet is displaying and the checker will advise whether a trip to the vet is necessary and how urgently that specialist care should be given.

Outstanding service ! Had to rush a 4 week old rejected kitten in who was very poorly ! We had been keeping her alive for 3 days. We then came to Alex and he knew the kindest thing to do was to let her go. I cannot thank this man enough for his help you made this awful experience a little more easy. I will never forget your kindness. God bless you.

We moved from a surgery in East Grinstead and so glad we did. We have seen Alex the last few times and he couldn’t be more helpful! And Without making us bankrupt with unnecessary treatment as lots of vets do. Alex has restored our faith in vets, the kindest man!!!

I have found Alex to be both compassionate, knowledgable, able to think laterally and to keep my little dog alive long past her sell by date! He is an extremely kind man, with a sense of humour and sensitivity and I am certain that he always suggests the best way forward, the most effective medicines and treatment and the gentlest way of administering these. I have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances, all of whom are as impressed by his skill and kindness as I have been.

I brought my dog Eiko in to see Alex at short notice. I know Alex was incredibly busy (as Chris is on annual leave) and he still managed to squeeze us in, as I was very worried about Eiko’s claw which was badly ripped/broken. Alex was extremely helpful, very confident with Eiko, who was not impressed at seeing a vet wearing a mask and he made me feel very reassured that Eiko was in very capable hands. Chris is my usual vet who I can’t praise highly enough, however I can now say from Personal experience that both vets at your practice are AMAZING! Thank you :)
