Given the difficult circumstances Johann Viljoen took time to explain that my elderly Jack Russell Buddys sudden haiir loss was due to an allergy and nothing more sinister. He recomended a change to his flea treatment and some medication to adress the symtoms. He advised it was a trial and error situation and the initial medication may not work. So far he seems to be responding well and I have not lost any fingers giving him the medication. Buddy is not an easy patient but he is always treated well. He hates going to the practice but this time he seemed almost pleased that I had taken him!

Yet again . Johann delivers a great service. I had a query with one of my animals and emailed Johann, he immediately replied and told me to bring my pet to surgery, it wasn't an emergency, but he went out of his way , considering we are in lock down. He checked my pet over and alleviated any fears I had. Such a caring, and genuine vet, and gives you so much confidence. He always demonstrates knowledge, and compassion. Nothing is to much trouble. Our Dr Doolittle of Prescot. A big thankyou.

We brought our cat in to the Scotchbarn Road surgery as she had been out of sorts and both vets we seen on both days were amazing, she's totally back to her old self. They both also followed the social distancing rules wonderfully and I felt like protocol at this vets made me feel safe and not at risk at all, I was really uneasy about having to take her as I'm 34 weeks pregnant. I completely didn't mind paying the emergency vet bill as everyone at the surgery has my upmost gratitude for working under the current circumstances. Thank you ever so much from our family and from our cat, who is back to meowing constantly for the ham in the fridge. xoxo

Lucy is 12 and has been successfully on heart medication for four years under the care and close supervision of Dr Johan and his amazing team. Three weeks ago we found a massive lump just above Lucy back leg after blood tests we worryingly discovered there had been some cancerous changes and surgery was suggested. We were devastated because of Lucy heart problem but with the reassurance of Dr Johan and the trust we have with him and his team we decided to go ahead with the surgery last Tuesday. The procedure went well and Lucy is recovering nicely . Today we have had some fantastic news the lump was removed with clear margins around and the cancer hasn’t spread. I can not thank Dr Johan and his fantastic team enough for their care and dedication they have shown to our princess Lucy dog I would highly recommend Medivet Prescot and particularly Dr Johan and his amazing team thankyou
