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

Alison Eames

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

Managed to get my pet looked at same day excellent vets.

Jason Gallear

I've been with PetCare for more years than I care to remember. Always been excellent. Nick is a fantastic vet and I like the fact that he's very down to earth with me.

Jane Ibbotson

Brilliant vets, so helpful and accommodating. We feel lucky to have found them and cannot recommend them enough.

Natalie Montagnani

Very reassuring.

Mim Hayward

My cat went missing and I phoned around everywhere to see if she had been found. The lady I spoke to at this vets was very helpful and gave me lots of people to ring and spent time with me to try and ease my mind. Thankfully she was found locked in my neighbours garage. I just want to say a huge thank you for your support even though I am not a customer of yours.

Rhonda Lea

Best veterinary practice you can go to! I had the most amazing service here from Maria! She really is an amazing vet. She is so smiley, friendly and just lovely she makes conditions easy to understand and will go the extra mile to help your pet. I now travel over an hour just to use this practice and to have my pup seen by Maria. I know I will have an amazing service and walk out of there smiling knowing everything is sorted and what needs to be done. Also with this practice there is no horrible corporate prices, they tell you exactly what is needed without putting extra unnecessary costs on top. If you are looking for a Vet look no further As Maria is the Vet you want to see.

Ashley Martin

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.
