Recently had to have my family lab put down who was 12. everything was explained to us as she suddenly took a turn and became very unwell. Leaving no choice but for her to out to sleep. Even with the whole family and extended piling into the room to say our goodbyes you guys were nothing short of amazing. So caring and loving and being able to sympathise with the feeling. Receiving a personalised hand written card in the post a few days later was just another amazing touch. Thank you for all you do, my animals will go no where else.

I wanted to say a big thank you to Paige and the lovely nurse who came out and visited us at home on Tuesday. Your kindness to my 15 year old dog Missi I will never forget. It was the hardest decision to have Missi put to sleep although the kindest one. So thoughtful of you to send a hand written card. Gosh we will miss her terribly. Paige you have a lovely way and make a fantastic vet, it so important to be so personable as well as being an expert in your field. Thank you.

Forest house staff immediately tended to Florence, who was badly torn by barbed wire hidden in a hedge. She was examined, anaesthetised, and her delicate whippet skin stitched together straight away. Everything explained to me clearly and kindly. I have used these vets since they were 'Bowditch and. Grimes' in William street many years ago. Always capable and caring, allowing my animals care and dignity throughout. Never failed yet!!!

For anyone considering having their animal (female dog in my case) spayed, I would avoid this practice as they are way behind the times and have no intention of changing to catch up with the rest of the world. Laparoscopic (Keyhole) spaying is not offered by this Vets because "they do not think it is the right way to go". Keyhole surgery is much kinder on the animal with the same effect and faster recovery times and is highly recommended by many eminent vets. Even for humans, it is the gold standard in surgery. Forest House need to update their thinking and consider the wellbeing of the animal. Advantages Patrick performing a laparoscopic spayMinimal pain due to both smaller wounds and much less trauma Much faster recoveries with a quicker return to activity Keyhole surgery is the gold standard that we expect as human patients Wound size is very much reduced. Typically two 6mm incisions Better visualization of organs and accuracy of surgical technique Less likelihood of wound swelling Less stressful for your dog By far the kindest and best option. I have moved my pets to the Alma Veterinary Hospital and received excellent friendly and modern care for my pet.

We appreciate all feedback, your review however, is based on a request for a very specific type of surgery, which is still only available from a small percentage of practices. Your comments do not reflect the overall care and treatment provided to your dog. At Forest House, we work to very high standards in all areas. We have a wide range of the most up to date equipment to enable us to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions. We use the best anaesthetic agents and protocols, and give one to one nurse monitoring throughout any surgery and recovery. Traditional surgery for neutering is still the most common practice and the majority of dogs recover very quickly. Whilst we respect your own personal requirement for laparoscopic surgery, this does not suit everyone. It is not without its own risks and possible complications and is a more expensive option. In experienced hands, laparoscopic surgery can lead to a quicker return to full exercise post-surgery.

Rip off cost for critical pet medicines. Disappointing and ridiculous mark up £6.99 (online from several suppliers) up to £18.60 is not justifiable. This feedback is decent, legal and honest it will be interesting to see if it is suppressed or censored in any way.

Further to our discussion on the telephone, sadly we cannot compete with the online suppliers who do not have to provide premises – and therefore extra overheads. Our drug cost includes the prescription charge which is the vet or vet nurse's time, training and experience in safely prescribing the drug for the individual pet. The online suppliers charge obviously does not include this as they are simply dispensing. We are always happy to write a prescription if you would prefer to source your medicines online, and can advise on reputable suppliers.
