Our dog caught an infection and needed emergency surgery the vets at highcliff were excellent and took her straight away for surgery she received excellent care and the vets phoned me regularly thorough out the day and evening to let me know how she was getting on and phoned again in the morning with an update A truly fantastic practice and I would highly recommend to anyone

We can not recommend highcliff highly enough, we have had 3 dogs looked after by them over many years. Our 13 week old puppy lost her fight for life just a couple of days ago, in this extremely traumatic time they were always there, every member of staff knew who we were and every one of them helped our pup and us through this dreadful time. Our heartfelt thanks to the whole team

Best vets around imo. Would not go anywhere else&would very highly recommend! Rosie especially is a wonderful nurse with all my cats.And i am extremely confident in her ability.She is always really careful with them all and i feel that she places real importance and time to ensure that they are in the very best of health.She always makes them a top priority.Rosie i feel always gives me that extra.i never feel rushed. she covers everything thoroughly and she evaluates the cats needs,i find her specific and accurate.She also kindly writes information down for me such as their weight¬es of things to do etc.She is very helpful with any pet issues i have including their nutrition which she gives good solid advice on.Also she gives me safety tips to help me maintain their future health.She has kindly dematted my persians with patience.She listens to me i.e not to shave them etc Recently she noticed an issue with one of my cats paw pads i had not&she dealt with it immediately.She is really on it.She covers any questions i have.Plus she is a really nice girl is easy to talk to whilst remaining professional.i love Tom too but feel i do not need to even see the vet so much as i can turn to her for most things.if i do need a vet Tom would be my first choice and i know Rosie would advise me accordingly if that were needed as i as a customer KNOW she has my pets interests at heart.This is the kind of EXTREME high standard you can only dream of for your pets.MASSIVE THANKYOU Rosie-CloudX Black TreacleX AugustinaXx I am just so happy she works there.i mean that.Thanks RuthXx

I lost my boy yesterday (14th Jan). I had him for nearly 12 years. He was under the care of Tom Forsyth and he could not have been in better hands. He was a black labrador and he had a terrible surface tumour. I miss him very badly indeed. He could not have been in better hands in his last minutes.

I would highly recommend highcliffs veterinary practice, the staff are very friendly helpful and understanding one whom I would especially like to mention for he's truly professional compassionate love and care and time for animals is Tom Forsyth. I have been using there services for many years and only recently had the very hard decision to have my beloved dog of 15 years put to sleep I totally trust Tom as he is very honest and always puts the welfare of animals first he made my dogs passing a very peaceful one gave us as much time as we would like to say our goodbyes and didn't rush us he always has time for the owners and their pets .i will always be grateful and thankful for all the hard work he does not to mention saving my other dog a few years back from a perforated hole caused by throwing sticks (don't throw sticks to dogs to fetch) it would have cost me thousands of pounds to send my dog to Newmarket but Tom said he feels he could do this op and I totally trust him and she made a full recovery thank you Tom. Tom deserves recognition for he's outstanding dedicated hard work to which alongside he's team makes this an excellent veterinary practice thank you so much I will always be indebted to you as I can't thank you enough.

We have been using Brantham Highcliff for a number of years and all the staff are very professional whilst also being friendly and helpful. The vets are great with the animals, I have dogs and hamsters so a great variation in size and ailments but vets deal with each one in a manner which suits the individual animal. They are patient with owners and very understanding. I have recommended several people to use Brantham Highcliff and they too are very happy with the service. Nurses always helpful and happy and reception staff are great to deal with at all times. Thank you all.

I have always found all the vets at the practice, friendly and very compasionat. Tom always takes the time to connect with my dogs and my dogs love him. Bruce my Rottweiler has issues and Tom is the only vet who will see him without a muzzle. Now Bruce trusts Tom. Our latest visit was with Poppy, Tom removed thorn from her foot, Poppy and I are so grateful for the excellent service thanks to Tom Poppy will be back enjoying her walk in the morning

Our dog has been a patient here for 14 years (and still is ). We have total confidence in the vets, they always discuss all treatment options and keep us well informed. I do not know how fees compare with other practices but because the service is excellent we would not consider going elsewhere. As I see it, vet fees are minimal if compared with costs for human private health care. No health care is cheap !! these vets provide very good value health care and lovely, friendly service.

I used this vets for first time today for my beautiful whippet sola ,not only was the welcoming friendly all the animals including sola were relaxed an happy to actually be in a vets waiting room rather than trying to run out the door ,the dog an cat separate seating area is fantastic so put less stress on the animals ,the place was clean too ,although my first experience was a very devastating one for me as I sadly had to put my beautiful girl to sleep very unexpected too,my vet Gemma was so kind an gentle towards her an even us ,I was In shock an Gemma never rushed me ,the compassion for us an sola was second to none ,the vet even allowed me to have a last walk with her an never did I feel rushed ,this traumatic experience was made more bearable thanks to the kindness of the vet ,this is a one in a million vets who actually do put animals first rather than money , even sola was relaxed an stress free an this made her end more bearable for her an us , I would only use these vets from nw on an I carnt thank Gemma ( vet ) for all her kindness an support today xxx top class service xx if I can suggest one thing it would only be to maybe make a room seepage for ppl to grive in as when you get bad news it's not very nice having to walk into waiting room crying eyes out with everyone looking at you ,maybe in time you could have little room out back so you don't have to walk threw main reception ,again it's only a suggestion xx THANK YOU all for today xxx an I'm sure sola is thankful too xx

I have been coming to Brantham for over 20 years and would not consider going anywhere else. Tom is brilliant and was so caring when we lost our last dog Poppy. I always recommend Highcliffe to my friends and colleagues.
