I cannot speak highly enough of the care and genuine concern for my cat last week.I would like especially to thank Frederica for her care of Scamp each day and Julia during the night.I thank also the cattery staff for keeping Scamp comfortable and clean.This cat is related to a tiger so not an easy boy by any means to deal with.A very sensible approach to his care was such a relief and anything that would distress him more that wasn't vital wasn't attempted,without compromising his overall care of course. The cattery was clean and the nurses friendly and welcoming. Receptionists are always helpful both on the phone and at the desk.Thankyou all,you made a stressful time a little easier to manage by your kind approach and it was greatly appreciated by me certainly,and I hope the old boy too!The early morning phone call was especially appreciated as were the updates during the day. I have no hesitation in recommending this hospital and its staff.So lucky to have it on the doorstep.

I came to see you again nearly four years after you performed a tracheostomy on me. I was in a sorry state, my breathing was so bad everything I did was an effort and my owner was concerned that I would not survive many more breathless attacks. However, Alisdair you soon fixed that, now two weeks after the op, I'm living a full life again. I think you pulled a lot of extra skin away from the hole which involved quite a few staples, and what a lovely neat job! Wouldn't notice it now. More importantly, I can breathe again. Thank you for my life Alisdair and all the Staff at Rosemary Lodge. Very kind regards Florence MacGregor.xxxxx

We couldn't be more impressed by and appreciative for the way that all of the staff at Rosemary Lodge approached the problem that our Spaniel, Millie, was suffering. The administrative staff showed respect and professionalism to both our Millie and to my wife and me. They recognised the relationship and bond that owner and pet have. The medical team, equally, showed the same empathy, as well as displaying their professional expertise in diagnosing and treating Millie. We were given full and clear explanations of her condition and her treatment. We are very lucky to have a professional and responsive facility for our pets.

Prior to my referral appointment, I received a call advising that the practise charges £25.00 for handing insurance claims that are paid directly to them. I said I would be paying the bill myself. On arrival at the practise, reception was chaotic, unfriendly and unprofessional. I had hardly sat down before being asked to pay the £25.00 handling fee despite having previously advised them I would be paying the bill myself. My cat was in for the day. I have no issue with the veterinary care and both vets telephoned me with updates and information when they promised. However, I do have an issue with just about everything else at this practise. When I paid the bill, I asked if it was complete and was assured it was. Shortly after I got home, though, I received a call to say they had undercharged me and I had another £150.00+ to pay. My cat is insured so, before leaving, I had handed my completed insurance claim form to the receptionist. I had ticked the box for my insurer to pay me and even provided a stamped addressed envelope. All the practise had to do was add their information and send it off. However, they sent it to my insurance company electronically with instructions to pay them and not me. My insurer duly obliged. I lodged a complaint with the practise manager. I received a verbal apology and, a few days later, a refund of their incorrect claim. However, I will not be returning.

Our dog Oakley was admitted to this hospital, and we believe he received the best care anyone could wish for. The staff were friendly, and caring, always happy to help. And we were lucky to have an outstanding vet in Mr Jon Shippam. From our first meeting with Jon, we found him to be a very caring man, and throughout our Oakleys stay at the hospital', he informed us of what was happening, every step of the way,which was invaluable to us. We cannot thank Jon and all the staff, including the night shift staff, whose professionalism never faltered. We will always remember them .As will Oakley who is now back to his old self. Paula Del and Oakley Millard
