Been to a few different vet surgery’s in my time. I can’t recommend this one enough. People say a lot of vets try to take your money but not here! They always try to help with alternatives where possible to help you save money if treatment isn’t affordable and always give the best advice. All the staff are so supportive and friendly. 3 vets iv seen here now and they have all been amazing! Especially Tina and Jorge! Definitely somewhere to try if you need a second opinion. Thank you for all your help and support ❤️

On Friday last week we made the decision to have our eldest dog Tink to go over the rainbow bridge 🌈 Medivet we’re very helpful in the days leading up to Friday with help and support, always talking in a calm and soft tone on the phone. We phoned at 9am on Friday as advised to get a slot on the day and we were seen at 10.30am by Jevon who was amazing from start to finish. He made sure we were given ample information and talked us through each step of the procedure, ensuring Tink was comfortable at each stage too. She went to sleep with dignity and respect from Jevon and the staff in the vets were very understanding too. When I went to pay they advised that I did not need to pay at that moment (however, did feel strong enough to do this) and we ordered her urn etc too. There was a candle lit at reception to say that we were saying goodbye to a pet and to speak softly and I also noticed there was a sign on the door of the room we were in saying we were saying goodbye. So so lovely ❤️ Today I received a lovely handwritten card in the post with well wishes for our family for our loss. Thank you so much to all staff at Medivet, you made such an upsetting time so special. X

The vet went above and beyond. My cat had pooed and peed in her carrier and he cleaned the carrier and the cat for me before giving her jab and checking her over. Well done

We have had cause to visit you several times over the last few months with our cat. Each visit we couldn’t have asked for more and we have been very impressed the Dr Javan has even rung us several times at home to see how she was doing. Our last visit was just for a check and she saw a different vet but we were still pleased with the service we got.

Took my dog here after finding a lump. my dog can be a handful and does not like people easily. The vet/surgeon was faultless in removing the lump and the after care put us at ease. 10/10 for jevan and the other staff.
