Thank you so much for your care of Chewie yesterday! I also want to thank Maria and Laura for supporting my four year old, she was so upset leaving him and they really took the time to talk to her and make her feel at ease! He is very happy at home now and back to his old self! Thank you so much to you all!

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.

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

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.

Anna Nussey

Very good with our dog and staff are super friendly.

Jonathan Naylor

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

Superb vets, excellent staff.
