Just had a visit to this practice to see vet Charlotte and her student. Brilliant treatment from both.

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.

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

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

Have been taking our animals to this vets practise for over 30 years, I wouldn’t trust or go to any other. I know my animals are well looked after, nothing other then the best care and advise is given.xx (I rate full stars)

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.
