I would give 10 stars if I could! We had to say goodbye to our old boy , who wasn't registered with them. They were amazing. From my 1st phone call and throughout the whole procedure, 2nd to none. Gave us all the time we needed. Thank you so much, from all our family for taking care of our best friend, ' Boscar.' x

As usual I found all the staff and Ian Mcconnell himself to be very friendly and attentive to my dog's needs. Can't recommend highly enough. Felt very safe as regards covid procedures.
