we live in Swanage and although it takes 40 or so minutes to reach the veterinary practice the other side of Wool - it is well worth it as the opening hours are good and out of normal hours service is reassuring - I think we get good value for money and another deciding factor is that there is an excellent animal hospital on site - we have found the receptionists & veterinary nurses friendly and efficient and we have full confidence in the veterinary expertise of the vets we have consulted.

I have absolute confidence in the ability and professionalism of the vets. Every member of staff is polite, friendly and helpful. This positives attitude extends to the animals - you get the impression that the staff as a whole love animals and care about their welfare.

I highly recommend Heathlands because there is always a smiley welcome and the quality of care is excellent. And now there is out of hours cover too - brilliant!

As a former employee of Medivet now working in animal rescue I would just like to say a huge thank you to the team at this branch. You treated a rescue dog called tiara with a very seriously infected foot. Not has your vet only hopefully saved her foot but you did it showing great care and generosity. It is difficult to find vets that will treat rescue dogs with such compassion. Well done and thank you all

The Receptionists are always so friendly. Andy, the Vet we saw was brilliant and explained everything he was doing. He was kind and patient, as was the nurse who also came in to help with my nervous elderly cat. I never have any hesitation at coming to this practice as everyone is so kind and very professional.

My dogs love going to Heathlands (Medivet). The reception staff are friendly & helpful and always manage to get me an appointment - often at very short notice. Andy Buchan knows the history of my dogs - and understands them. They adore him! He is very professional and says it as it is - which I like. I find the prices very reasonable and both my dogs are on their monthly pet plan. The nurses are helpful and friendly and real animal lovers. They were wonderful with my late dog, and although frequently very ill he too loved going to Heathlands. I have and will continue to recommend Heathlands. I consider them to be the best practice in the area.

Andy Buchan is an excellent vet and I have every confidence in him whenever I have to take any of my three dogs to see him. In addition to his expertise he is friendly, re-assuring and explains everything so that I understand what is wrong and treatment being given. The girls on the Reception Desk are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The Veterinary Nurses are also very friendly, kind and helpful and are always there to talk to you out of hours if you have a problem. In a nutshell I cannot praise Heathlands (Medivet) more highly and would recommend (and have been doing so) to any of my friends.

The Vet always puts Belle at ease which is a hard task as she hates Vets normally. They are always professional, helpful and polite and all make the experience for us and Belle easier.

I have always received kindness, compassion, good advice and help for my animals, for which I am very grateful.
