Pet Care have been looking after our Cocker puppy, Joe, since we got him six weeks ago and everyone has been a delight to work with. Joe came from a pretty awful breeder, just in it for the money, but the team at Pet Care have him bouncing around chasing anything that moves in the garden. A lovely team. :)

Steve Hooper

Kind caring and personal service.

Linda Arrow

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

Very good with our dog and staff are super friendly.

Jonathan Naylor

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

Natalie Montagnani

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

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

Andrew Kelly

Felt confident that my pet would be looked after.

John Lawlee

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