It’s obvious the vets genuinely love animals; this was my elderly dog’s first visit here (although other household pets are at this practice), and as I was filling out paperwork before his annual check-up and shots, I realised that the person crouched down and fussing him was the vet making friends before his appt. She was very thorough in her exam but gentle and patient with it, and despite the never-fun intra-nasal kennel cough vaccine (he doesn’t notice shots where he’s so big), he was still totally in love with her. He’s a great judge of character, and that he has warmed to her so fast is a sign that she’s not just a very good vet, but makes the animals feel safe too. My only suggestion would be to invest in a thermal microchip reader to give a fast accurate temperature reading for those animals with them, to avoid the unpleasant rectal thermometer - never easy with a reluctant large-breed dog.

Lovely service. My dog is very nervous but received great care and attention. We were well informed of all costs involved and as an owner felt very comfortable and confident

The service has been absolutely first class from booking in at Reception, to receiving advice and moving forward with the health care for my Chihuahua. We saw Nuno, the head vet, what absolutely amazing care and advice he has given us for our little lady. We were extremely anxious about the treatment that is needed, however Nuno has put our minds completely at rest, we can’t thank him enough for the level of care shown. Many thanks Nuno and team x

I cannot begin to describe my gratitude to Nuno and his wonderful team for taking such fantastic care of my three dogs but in particular my cocker spaniel Daisy who had a mastectomy recently. Everyone went above and beyond to take the absolute best care of her every step of the way. The professionalism, empathy and kindness was phenomenal. I feel really lucky to have found such a wonderful vets who genuinely care. I wholeheartedly recommend Nuno and his team; there is no better veterinary practice than Downes/Medivet Leigh. Thank you for everything you have done for my three girls. We really appreciate it!

Great service expert advises. DR Biddle certainly knows her job well. Her attitude and professional advise was spot on. I felt the practise certainly benefits from her expert knowledge. They're very lucky to have her as there surgeon. She considers people's feelings which is very important.

Every time I visit with my blind 17 year cat he’s treated quickly and with great respect for his age and condition. Such experience, knowledge, professionalism together with empathy and understanding and reassureance is hard to find in a busy veterinary surgery. A big thanks you to one special vet. He knows who he is. � x

Did not use the vets ourselves however you can tell they have a real passion for animals. They took in a stray cat that my family has grown very fond of and would like to adopt. Looked after her until word spread back to us that she was there and safe. Cant thank them enough.
