Whilst visiting Derby for a few days with our dear dog Bollinger, {Bolly}she became ill and sadly we had to let her go as she was so ill. The friendliness of the team was second to none. We would also like to say a big thank you to Nick for all that he did. For things to turn out the way they did we could not have wished to have found better practice. Bolly will remain in a memories for ever Thank you so much. David & Phil

We would just like to thank you all for the care and support we received during Ruby's last few months, a special thank you to Nick for helping us through a very difficult time last week when we had to make the heartbreaking decision to have Ruby put to sleep, you made what was a very difficult time bearable with your kind, caring and compassionate manner. Thank you also for the sympathy card we received, what a lovely personal touch,very much appreciated xx

A few years ago we had a young much loved Labrador with a serious health problem. Clive and his team helped to look after Morris during a very difficult time for Morris - and us, his owners. Even though a couple of years have passed since Morris died the team still remember him when we take our new lively Labrador in for a check up. When the time came to say goodbye to Morris, Clive went out of his way to come to our house on a Sunday afternoon to do the deed in our garden which made things much easier for us. Prior to Morris we also had two cats which had their fair share of trips to Abbey vets and I was always happy with service provided. I particularly like the option that I can visit either surgery and at the weekend. Thank you to all of the team.

We have used Abby vets (chaddesden) for many years and have always been happy with the service we received. But unfortunately for us we have a very poorly dog and unsure on how much longer we will have with her. The care and support we have received from Luke as been 110% he as gone above and beyond his duty even calling us when he was back from holiday to see how she was and as always treated her as if she was his own pet. Abby vets you all do a great job and should all be proud and Luke you are amazing and we can not thank you enough. Thank you all. Xxxxxxxxxxx

Returned to Abbey after having briefly used another vet and was straight away given sensible and relevant advice by the receptionist, a quick and calm appointment with the confident and knowledgeable vet, no fuss, no stress, and after a week of worrying, was given the all clear, left feeling much more assured and with a much less stressed dog.

We have an old dog who has different needs. Abbey vets (shelton lock) have been nothing but accommodating for him. Whatever needs he has - they meet. Never had a problem and they are always able to see our pets when they need seeing. Excellent service!

My older cat Norman has been diagnosed with early stage kidney problems and Luke has been brilliant. We've got him on monthly injections and a special diet and so far so good. Also one of my other cats has just had an op to remove lots of teeth. Abbey were helpful and Rachael came out of the op very well. I would recommend them to anyone.

Special thanks go to Nick for his help with my dogs especially with Pepsi who was not only diabetic but had cushings disease. Nick did all he could to keep Pepsi comfortable in her last month's. Not only is he caring and compassionate with all animals but helped me during a very difficult time. The same kindness was displayed by all the staff. I always highly recommend Abbey their professionalism and dedication to the animals and their owners is second to none.
