We pride ourselves on being the friendliest practice in town with a team of people who are always pleased to offer help and advice.

We give a written 15-point exam report when pets have a vaccination and first consultation.

Our nurses are present in every consultation to assist the vet which allows for:

  • an easier and more thorough examination with someone trained to hold pets.
  • a more efficient consultation so that the vet has more time to talk to you and better explain any problems identified and the care needed.

We are the only practice to offer a money-back guarantee on consultation fees for perceived unsatisfactory service.
