The service is impeccable. My dog drags me in for a cuddle from the receptionists, and James is the most thorough and reassuring of vets. I always recommend LVC.

Vet Response

Thanks so much Anne - really kind!

James and his team at Lancaster vets deliver the best contemporary care to my dogs and foster dogs. They understand my breed and have been supportive which as a breeder and foster carer is paramount to me. I have felt fully supported in all aspects of the care management and delivery from the whole team. I trust them.completely and recommend them to many people.

Thanks Anna - we really appreciate that and all your support.

I've been using LVC for around 13 years, with 3 dogs and a cat. I've always found the team to be professional, caring, trustworthy and empathetic. They have helped me with all aspects of my pets care and explained all diagnoses with care and attention and honest opinions, taking into account our emotional needs and financial situation as necessary. I've found the healthy pets club to be good value for money and appreciate the regular check ups. I have attended recently with my new rescue dog and the facility for regular visits has helped his nerves at going to the vets. All my pets have been calm and happy going to see their friends at LVC.

Thanks Katherine, you guys are a very welcome part of the Lancaster Vets family!

We have used Lancaster Vets for many years for several of our pets. We've always received excellent service with a professional yet personal touch. We would always trust our pets' health and welfare with them.

Lancaster Vets - they have done so much for my dog in the last ten years, and always with patience and understanding. They've operated on her, taken organs out, and we've always trusted them in everything they've done. I'm sure they treat all animals the same, but I always feel that my dog is their only patient - they pay her so much attention when she visits them. I think they love her nearly as much as I do.

Vet Response

"I think they love her nearly as much as I do." Thank you SO much - we'll keep doing that!

My Dog Alfie has been cared for by LVC for 15 and half years and without the professional dedicated care of all the staff he defiantly would not be here today. He was diagnosed with liver disease at 7 years of age and had numerous illnesses, pancreatitis, 2 cruciate ligaments, tumour on his tail resulting in him having it amputated, arthritis in all legs, a skin condition and now has a tumour pressing against his liver. Yet he still loves going there and when he could go for long walks we could not pass without him pulling me to the door to say hello. Not only are the staff great with all the animals they care for the owners and provide honest advice and support when needed. Everyone treats you like family, it's a brilliant practice with a lovely team of staff.

Vet Response

Thanks Tracey - what a lovely review. You sum up really what we want to achieve - that you feel more like a friend or a family member than a client. Hoping as we work hard together Alfie has a few more years in him yet!

Rocco, our first pet, a White West Highland Terrier (11weeks) has his first check at the vets and although we had researched massively before getting him we still had many questions and needed reassurance that we were doing everything possible and correctly. We had already visited the practice prior to getting Rocco and instantly we were impressed with the help we received so it was decided straight away this was going to be the place for us. Rocco had his first check and soon after we bought more food supplies for him but this was different to the food we had been given from the breeder. Rocco ended up a little unsettled over the weekend and we were very worried but as he was still playful I thought I'd leave a message to ask advice. My mind was soon put at rest with the prompt reply and advice, we again received. We popped him in for a vet visit and James recommended things to try as well as giving him a little medication. I'm so impressed with the care and attention this practice gives and highly recommend them. Excellent service and a wonderful and dedicated team.

Vet Response

Rocco is a star and we are really enjoying getting to know him (and you guys). Thanks for such a lovely review.

Lancaster Veterinary Centre are one of the few vet centres around that are knowledgeable and up-to-date with the treatment of small furries such as rabbits and guinea pigs. I wouldn't take mine anywhere else and am happy to travel 30 min each way to get there. On numerous occasions I have been able to get appointments at short notice and get the very best treatment for my pets. They listen to my concerns and respect my views as an experienced owner, working out a care plan that is appropriate and affordable. They have often followed up consultations with a phone call or a text to see how my pet is doing. I would recommend this practice to anyone, especially those with small furries looking for a knowledgeable vet they can trust.

Vet Response

Thanks Kate - we really appreciate such a kind review. Always glad to see your bunch at the surgery and happy to go the extra mile for our small and furry patients!
