Incredible service. We’ve been impressed each time we’ve taken our puppy to the vet. Yesterday they outdid themselves. Our puppy sustained an injury whilst playing and they explained on the phone that it was busy, but to bring her. On arrival, she was triaged, treated with compassion and joy and her wound cleaned within 15 minutes. Brilliant vets – Karen Tebbutt (Google Review)
