Just wanted to say a few words of thanks to all at Easter Ross vets. For some inexplicable reason one of my 7 year old Chinchillas "Malli" decided to bite her tail so badly that it required partial amputation, the professionalism and effort put in by Paco and staff was second to none, the effort and care all put in after the amputation was fantastic. I'm very glad to say that Malli's remaining bit of tail has healed brilliantly and that she is back in her cage with her friend Baily and happily cuddling up together again after several weeks of having to be kept apart whilst Malli healed. Many thanks again for all the efforts made for Malli, she is doing great.

We (me, hubby, six dogs) moved to the area just one year ago. Before that I researched vets in the area. I emailed Easter Ross Vets a few times to ask questions before making my final decision. Sapphie wrote back almost immediately, very patiently answering my questions. I had been with my vet back in Oldham for over 30 years and I wanted the same sort of relationship, one based on mutual respect, care for my very precious pets and willing to listen and maybe learn from my experiences. I have a couple of dogs with problems - one with epilepsy, one with liver disease - so they need constant monitoring. We adopted an old, neglected dog in January, diagnosed within days as having Cushings Disease by my old vet back in England. She needed surgery as soon as possible for a mammary tumour, inverted nipple and dreadful teeth but at almost 15 years old it was a worry. Once her Cushings was stabilised Gail operated and my husband and I were simply astounded at how well Elsa was immediately after surgery I know I made the right decision in choosing this vet practice to care for my dogs. The vets, nurses and receptionists are first rate and I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you to all of you for being so nice.

My last visit to the vet with Sooty was a very sad one. With a very heavy heart, we decided that we had to let him go as we believe he had a stroke. It didn't matter that it was a late night consultation, we and Sooty were treated with dignity & respect. What was completely lovely was the card we received from Easter Ross vets to show their sympathy. Thank you Easter Ross Vets for your support.

Ive been going to this practice for a few years now and I have had pets all my life so obviously visits to different vets. Easter Ross Vets are the best, friendly, very professional, never ever doubted their diagnosis or advice and been brilliant to me as well as to my pets! Would neva go anywhere else - I know I can take my dogs there and they will get the very best of care...well done to Paco, Abi, Gail and Nurses (Saffie who is patient and clearly loves the animals and her dogs and always give me the warmest welcome) and the rest of his team! Trying to get more interest in dogs from Spain Paco, so would always send them in your direction....Wendy, Jess, Roxy and pretty pretty Bonnie. Killen Avoch x

I saw Paco with my two kittens for their injections and kitten check. I must say I was very worried about the appointment, as the kittens came from a home where they had not been handled and were still very timid, especially around strangers. Paco was very understanding, and so gentle and caring with the cats, that the appointment went really well, without causing any further anxiety to either the cats or me! I\'d recommend the practice to anyone, the level of care is excellent, and the whole team are very friendly and helpful. I had considered not taking the kittens to the vet as they were so frightened, but I wouldn\'t think twice about booking them in in the future. Thanks for your professionalism, and for making our visit so pain free!!

I have been using the Alness branch for a couple of years now & i am more than happy with the care & service we get from all the members of the team. I look forward in using the practice for the next few years to come.
