Tink my wonderful rescue old lady dog, does not like having her nails trimmed. We were getting worried she would need a sedation but the wonderful rescue nurse took her time and managed to do them, with limited stress on Tink. Freya my gsd also gets her nails done here and honestly, I think all vet nurses here are magical mages in how they can calm anxious dogs xx

Amazing team! Lola (our gorgeous Labrador) would not be here today if it wasn’t for Brightside. They went above and beyond to take care of Lola in an emergency. Exceptional care of us and our pets. I cannot begin to thank them enough ❤️ We would heartily recommend them to anyone x

Live in Burton, and even with the recent bridge closure - the trip to Brightside was well worth it ! Our Springer recently had an op there, he was looked after so well. We've since visited with five pups for their health checks with Katie. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff there, they go above and beyond in terms of customer service and animal care. Very well done to you all. See you again soon!

A brilliant, friendly and most helpful team. My old cat has been so well looked after. I couldn’t be more pleased with the treatment she has received whilst under the care of Vicki and her team. Would reccomend this practice. Thank you to all staff.
