Clinic reviews

Very pleased with this treatment Tilly did not have any pain never bothered the tiny wound which healed very quickly and in herself she seems happier then aver. Would recommend this keyhole surgery to everybody. Thanks very much.

My husband and I brought our twelve year old cat in for her annual vaccinations and check-up this morning. We moved to the local area earlier in 2016, and this is the first time that we have used Woodcroft Veterinary Group. I booked the appointment online and promptly received an email confirmation. The appointment was at 10am and we were seen on time. The lady on reception was friendly and welcoming, and the reception area was quiet and clean. The Vet was really lovely, friendly and reassuring (and our cat was strangely cooperative!). She was very thorough during the check-up and chatted to us throughout. She was very well informed and seemed genuinely interested in our cat. The total cost for the two vaccinations, a worming tablet (the Vet gave the cat the tablet then and there), and a check-up was around £49, which we thought was good value (and cheaper than our last veterinary surgery). I would definitely recommend the Handforth branch.

We have seen a different vet at each visit, we requested to see the same vet and were prepared to travel to a different practice, but did not happen. Worst experience by far is the upselling by two of the vets we have seen. Moving to Woodcroft has been hugely expensive and to top off as a proper investigation was not carried out we had to have another appointment and different treatment. Having written to the practice by email, as directed by a staff member, we have not yet had a response. I would most certainly not recommend this veterinary practice, they are very keen to see how much they can sell you.

Vet Response

Dear Rebecca I am sorry to read you feel you have not received our gold standard of pet and client care we aim to achieve. I believe our receptionist did contact another branch to allow continuity of care for your pet. The vets are on a fixed salary, they never receive commissions or bonus's for selling products. It is our policy to always discuss worm/flea medications at time of vaccination, to safe guard the well being of your beloved pets. It would be negligent of us not to make these recommendations. Your initial email was being addressed internally before contacting you, I only received it 48 hours before I made contact. I am sorry you feel unhappy with our service, please do not hesitate to contact me again. Fiona Knight Customer Care Manager - Woodcroft Veterinary Group.

I have a staffishire bull terrier who has had a dislike and fear of the vets since being a puppy he is now ten years old. Having to find a new vet due to our local vets closing down we made an appointment at the cheadle branch on Councillor Lane. Being very apprehensive I visited the branch alone to put my fears at rest. Immediately the reception staff took me round and asked me the likes and dislikes of our beloved dog telling me they would inform the vet of my concerns. The day of the visit was amazing, our dog was greeted with kindness,dog treats and love. Both my son and husband could not believe how calm he was and how well the treatment went with no issues. We cannot thank the staff enough for all thier kindness. An A1 practice whom we can recommend to anyone. Thank you

I have a springer spaniel puppy (Peggy) who circles. I had a consultation with Ashleigh. Ashleigh took the time to watch and comment on the videos of Peggy and listened to the issues I raised. Ashleigh answered all the questions I raised and gave valuable advice and recommendations. Ashleigh was excellent with Peggy and gave her a thorough examination

Many thanks to the helpful and efficient staff at the cattery, who have helped me and Snedgus a great deal recently. They are a credit to the company.

I have a 17-year-old cat (which in cat years is about 85). She has had some quite traumatic experiences with other rather uncaring vets who did not listen to how to interact with her eg no grooming or only stroking her neck area. I was, therefore, very wary about taking her to any vets at all any more. On moving to Cheadle Hulme, I found Woodcroft Veterinary practice in Bramhall and took Penny along for a consultation as she had had two epileptic fits. I immediately was put at ease by the very welcoming Gemma. She took time to chat about Penny, asked about her and really seem to care. I felt very heartened. I then met Ashleigh the vet, who again was absolutely lovely with Penny. She spoke to the cat as well as to me, which meant a lot. I explained that I was really worried about leaving Penny for a day for blood tests, because of her past experiences, and Ashley listened very patiently to everything. We made a plan together for Penny and her care. I was thrilled to find that Woodcroft has other branches in the area and I took Penny into the Councillor Lane branch for her day out. Being just next to my work meant that I was close by in case of problems. On picking her up in the evening after her blood test, she seemed calm and relaxed. It is such a relief to find a vet I can trust with this beloved family member. She has since been again for another blood test and and I know that, in her last years, Penny is in excellent hands. Thank you to the whole team across all the branches.

5 Stars - 20-04-2016 - Cardio Client

My 12 year old cat has been visiting Woodcroft for many years.He has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and sees cardiologist vet Jane regularly for updates and treatment. More recently he was reffered to vet Donald for investigations into vomitting and he discovered a rare polyp blocking his intestines. Surgey was performed by specialist Graham Hayes to remove the polyp which was sucessful. Having unfortunately had to use various different areas of Woodcrofts service, I have only ever received the most professional service and advice, and all of the vets and nurses that I have dealt with have been so caring and friendly. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Woodcroft to others.

I cant speak highly enough about the practice , everyone is friendly , caring and professional . Our dog Benson has just had a cyst removed , we were concerned as he is an older dog and a English Bull Mastiff . The vet Sylvia was so kind and lovely , explained everything to us and the follow up with the nurse removing stitches . Our dog just loves his trips to the vets , dont know if its the chews he gets and the fuss thats made of him . I would and do recommend them to anyone wanting a vet . Thank you all

So dissapointed to be writing this review but think it needs to be done.On so many occasions when I have taken my pet(s) to the woodcroft practice in Handforth I have been left feeling concerned about the lack of kindness and courtesy demonstrated by the reception staff. They show very little real interest in the animals which visit the surgery and are very motivated by revenue opportunities.I have seldom come across an organisation who you would expect to be warm and welcoming to be the complete opposite.There is definitely room for improvement ! Mr Davies
