Excellent service from the professional team at Mayne. Everyone from the receptionist, nurse and vet were first class. Caring, thoughtful and considerate. We have been using Mayne for almost 20 years and would highly recommend them. A follow up call the morning after our dogs operation was most thoughtful and appreciated. Keep up the good work.

I've been to a lot of different vets with a number of pets over the years, here and in Wales, this place is by far the best I have experienced. Staff at reception were lovely and so were the vets in the rooms in the back. I love how it doesn't feel too corporate, being based in a house and having such lovely people. Sadly I lost my rabbit but Charlotte Mayne made sure she was well cared for and helped keep the costs down as I am on ESA and don't have a lot of money. The only reason I could not give 5 stars all round was because there are other vets you could go to that offer a slightly cheaper rate but these guys are well worth the small extra cost, Charlotte is wonderful and i absolutely love Alice on reception as she always takes an interest in every animal that comes through the door.

I have been going to Mayne Veterinary Clinic for the past 30 years, for the past 10 years I have been ordering with a month in advance my cat's food, he got stomach problems therefore he need special food. For the past year it has been 4 times that they didn't have my order ready when I went to collect it. One month I had to buy a different food and my cat end up ill, today I went to collect food again and paid for it but first they gave me the wrong food, second as they didn't have the order they told me to buy another kind of food until my order arrive and I had to pay for it , the administration in the clinic has gone down very much, I will certainly not buy any more food there, each bag cost me 34.00 pounds it is not peanuts but it seems nobody care

Vet Response

Dear Gladys. Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry you have not received the level of service we hope to provide. I suspect this post was written before we had a chance to discuss your concerns and refund the money for the replacement food you bought. However, let me take this chance to reassure you we have taken steps to improve the service we provide to hopefully prevent these failures from happening again. If you have any further concerns, please feel free to contact the clinic to discuss them further. We appreciate all feedback, positive or negative, as it is an essential part of improving the quality of service we provide. Many thanks, Charlotte.

Sadly we had to say 'goodbye' to our pet cat, 21/2 weeks ago. He was looked after brilliantly by the the staff there, the receptionists were always friendly, caring and obliging, happy to cancel my appointments and fit us in when I could eventually make a decision as to when we could go. Kat is a super kind vet, who I'm really grateful to, for looking after our cat Minstrel, and Margee the nurse was exceptionally caring too at a time when it was needed and appreciated.I have already recommended Kat to my friend who has two cats and shall continue to do so.

They have helped us with our dog since he was a puppy, right up til the end. The staff remember our dog and are very kind and sweet. They have offered help and support to us as people as well as caring for the animals well. The new male vet was very helpful and sensitive today and we will always remember him and the respect he gave us and our dog.

when I know my greyhound Ace was going to be staying with us a started looking for a vet and quite often pass them. So pop in to see about having Ace regesierted with them and had to say I was made to feel welcome . When Ace had to see them with a bad paw they were great in treat it and as it came returned they were very helpful in sort it out. When I asked what vet I go with now my greyhounds as greyhounds are different from other breeds for a number of reason so it good to have what we say is a greyhound sav vet
