Great staff and very helpful. I've been taking my working dogs there for six years and they are brilliant with them.

Alison Eames

GOOD WITH RABBITS! Thank you for taking such good, kind care of my beautiful bunny. For anyone looking for an understanding, gentle and competent rabbit vet I have had consistently good experiences here and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Sam Walker

Friendly, sincere staff. Nicolas is an excellent vet. I would recommend him to all. He really does give excellent customer care to pets and owners alike. The practice even sent me a sympathy card after my last dog passed away. I highly recommend this practice.

Tracey Carter

3 years ago the whole team were wonderfully sympathetic and caring when we had our gorgeous dog Murphy put to sleep. Everything was handled beautifully. We still feel huge gratitude.

Jane Vrettos

Good care for pets by vet Nick Smith and his team. Professional and caring.

Andrew Kelly

PetCare have looked after our animals since we moved to the area in 1996 and, in every case, have gone the extra mile to make sure our pets are as cared for as well as we would look after them ourselves. Several of our dogs get excited about going there!

Hugh Neve

Kind caring and personal service.

Linda Arrow

Absolutely fantastic Vets. I trust Nick with all my animals 100%.

Nicky Cremer

We have been visiting this vet for the last ten years and never received anything but kindness and attention. Our elderly Brittany contracted an eye infection and despite all our panic Nick Smith and his excellent team saw us through some of the worst days of pet ownership. Purdey is now much better and although she has lost the sight in her right eye she is as mischievous as ever.

Patrick Stoner

Outstanding vets. My dog (Ziggi) has had a multitude of health issues since a puppy and I have had to frequently move to different parts of the country over her lifetime. This means I have dealt with my fair share of vets, some amazing and some not so great. Petcare vets are among the best. They are professional, knowledgeable and caring. They listen to your concerns and perform thorough examinations. All the options are clearly explained. Couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you and keep up the awesome work.
