Been using Astonlee for over 25 years would trust them with my life let alone my dogs, always been there at the good times as well as bad and couldn't ask for more. They even take care of the pet owners welfare at the saddest times into consideration.

I cannot commend Aston Lee enough - our cats have been customers for over 7 years. Both are imminently to turn 17, and we will only be able to celebrate this milestone because of the care and attention that they have received at this surgery; both cats have had chronic heart and kidney conditions for several years, yet are still with us and are continuing to enjoy good quality of life. Not only do they receive expert attention when attending their in-hours appointments, but more importantly they have needed to have emergency support out of hours (normally around 1 or 2 am!). The out of hours service is exemplary - a quick call to the normal number and we're through to the on-call vet, who knows our cats - no quibbling about charges - "meet me at the surgery in 15 minutes". On arrival the cat is seen immediately and either treated or admitted to the fully-equipped hospital. We cannot recommend this vet enough - they have literally saved our cats lives - they are a superb practice.

I cannot fault Paul and his team at all. I have been using Astonlee for a number of years now and would not go anywhere else. When my cat had heart failure earlier this year Paul gave me hope and he wasn't wrong... Ninja is back to normal and stronger than ever. I thought I was going to loose him that awful day. They are fantastic with all my animals and I really cannot find fault with them at all. A definite 5 stars for everything

We have used Astonlee Vets for 30 years and we are more than satisfied they are first class.

We found Astonlee vets on line after desperately searching for a solution for our beloved Labrador Mollie who our own vets had twice suggested we consider “doing the kindest thing” in other words putting her to sleep. Their suggestion was made from a good place as she was clearly in some pain and was depressed. The diagnosis was a ruptured cruciate ligament! But we could not consider this without first searching for an alternative. After finding Astonlee on line we arranged to take Mollie in to meet Paul. It’s the best decision we could have ever made. A week later she had surgery using Paul’s skin graph technique - mollie is 3 weeks away from the crucial three month recovery period and so far so good. Her personality has returned she’s happy and she’s walking on her bad leg. I wholeheartedly recommend anyone whose dog has the same issue to meet and speak to Paul at Astonlee.
Vet ResponseGreat review, thank you!

We have been going here for over 25 years and would never consider going anywhere else. All our cats and kittens have received excellent care over the years and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice.

I have been with this practice from the very beginning, and must be well over 30 years and would not trust of go anywhere else in my area. I have taken litters of puppies for normal inoculations to having major surgery for a string of many problems. Always treated with an understanding smile. Have received follow up telephone calls to see how my pet is doing. Have had call outs late at night. Just wished my own doctor was as tentative as the professionals in this practice. Being a dog breeder, we have over the years had a number of dogs, but have reduced our numbers now, and have recently taken up the offer of the neutering for £99 for the smaller dogs. That`s a huge saving from well over £200 plus, so we have had all our girls done. Different schemes are run to help with payments for regular customers but also for preventative measures.

'I cannot speak highly enough about the crusiate ligament operation performed at Astonlee. My vet referred to a clinic for TPLO but I was worried about sawing bone as a result of soft tissue damage. I went with my instinct and Poppy recovered well. My vet even said that the op replacing ligament with skin would break down - 5 years later its good as new. Needless to say have changed vet. I was swayed by knowing that if by any chance the op failed by dog would have a limp - not a possible amputation. It also cost almost half the price!'

I would give even 1star. Don't use these. They charged me 1300 pounds or to have the dog put to sleep. The vet man was so rude certainly don't care about animals just money grabbers. Took her to another vets charged a lot less and op on her straight away. If I was so stupid enough to take his advise summer would not be here now. Certainly going further about this.
Vet ResponseWe always do our utmost to help our regular and registered clients but cannot be expected to give an instalment plan to a person we have not seen before with their animal. The condition concerned (pyometra – an infected womb) is also preventable, with spaying at an early age, costing far less than an emergency procedure. I have been in practice nearly forty years and at Astonlee for 32 years, but I still find people who choose to ignore this advice and both them and their pets suffer the consequences It is far better to be proactive in registering pets from an early age at Astonlee and working with us to ensure they have as happy and healthy a life as possible working with us

I had been taking my King Charles here for years. She was very poorly for the last two years of her life. They did everything they could for her and I never fretted when I had to leave her in their care over night. On my last visit with her I new she had to be allowed to pass on. I can't express how compassionate the vet was. He allowed me to cradle her and let me tell him when I was ready. There was no rushing to get the next patient in. Afterwards the care was still there but for me. I Now have a new best mate to help with my loneliness and this is where he will be coming. If you want your pet to be cared for with love and kindness then Please don't go anywhere else.
