Nice place well run nice staff

We took our very active, loud, playful 2 yr old golden Lab (Ceasar) to Lesley for a 10 day stay as we went on holiday. Our last experience with a kennel close (naming no names!) we were told that he couldn't go back because he barked "too much"...!!! Lesley showed us around and we decided to take him to her. I am VERY glad we did. I am not sure what she has done but we have got a calmer more relaxed pooch back. We actually thought that he didn't want to come home! Lesley and her staff certainly looked after him and we felt really reassured that next time we go away he can go back to his new friends for his own little holiday. Proper kennels, ran by people who clearly love animals, couldn't ask for more. Really happy with everything. Thanks Lesley and the girls! James

Really friendly staff and knowledgeable vets make this the perfect place to take your portly pets. I used these when my bearded dragon was not well because they're the nearest exotic pets veterinary to me. They did not disappoint and the medication that was provided did the trick so he is back health and happy. Cannot recommend any more highly.

Good service, they always fit us in at short notice. Professional & trustworthy too!

I cannot recommend this practise enough. My Greyhound came here last month 2 days before Christmas when she has broken one of her legs. It was a long 12 hours as we then found out she had cancer in the broken leg and severe arthritis in the other leg. She wouldn't of been happy to survive on 3 legs with the other one being in a bad condition. Since bringing Miley into the vets the staff couldn't of been more helpful, the minute we left her the staff where sat on the floor cuddling her so i knew she was being looked after. As it was going on midnight the same day we had to make the choice as a family if to let her go or not, one of the hardest things we have ever had to go through. Not only did the vets give us options, they sent a specialist in late that night to give a final opinion they could not of done anymore. Thanks for all your help Armac :)

My cat was very poorly and it was the weekend, so my usual vets were closed, so after reading a few reviews on here I drove to this practice. The staff were very friendly and throughout the stay of my poor little kitty cat, I was given regular updates about his condition. Anyway, my cat is alot better now I would recommend that anyone take their pet to the vets here, would absolutely use again. Just a note, you can park at the front of the vets and have to get a yellow card from inside the vets which gives you 30 mins free parking, just make sure you display it to not get a ticket!
