Vet was gentle and kind with our animals. Very thorough, didn't feel rushed, explained treatment required and acted quickly when needed. We were also pleased with the price charged. Will definitely bring all our animals here from now on.
Liked how thorough the vet was , and that I did not feel rushed at all, he was happy to discuss any issues regarding my dog
The staff are very lovely and it's a great environment for pets. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and the advice I was given for my puppy was excellent.
