Dr Nuno is the best most passionate and caring vet I have ever met I first met him at the Medivet hospital and then joined the survey where he practices. If you want the best service then he is the vet to see ! The reception staff are extremely helpful and will do everything they can to accommodate an requests u have and you are made to feel welcome and reassured even when u are in a panic. The surgery is outstanding and I cannot recommend them enough

Very friendly, caring and knowledgeable practice. The appointment was not rushed, the treatment was explained in detail and my cat was relaxed through the whole procedure. I would highly recommend Downes Vets, Leigh on Sea

Just had a visit to this practice to see vet Charlotte and her student. Brilliant treatment from both.

It’s obvious the vets genuinely love animals; this was my elderly dog’s first visit here (although other household pets are at this practice), and as I was filling out paperwork before his annual check-up and shots, I realised that the person crouched down and fussing him was the vet making friends before his appt. She was very thorough in her exam but gentle and patient with it, and despite the never-fun intra-nasal kennel cough vaccine (he doesn’t notice shots where he’s so big), he was still totally in love with her. He’s a great judge of character, and that he has warmed to her so fast is a sign that she’s not just a very good vet, but makes the animals feel safe too. My only suggestion would be to invest in a thermal microchip reader to give a fast accurate temperature reading for those animals with them, to avoid the unpleasant rectal thermometer - never easy with a reluctant large-breed dog.

The service has been absolutely first class from booking in at Reception, to receiving advice and moving forward with the health care for my Chihuahua. We saw Nuno, the head vet, what absolutely amazing care and advice he has given us for our little lady. We were extremely anxious about the treatment that is needed, however Nuno has put our minds completely at rest, we can’t thank him enough for the level of care shown. Many thanks Nuno and team x

I would have no hesitation in recommending Medivet as I have always found the veterinary and reception staff to be very friendly and efficient.
