Whilst down here visiting my sick mother-in-law I took my dog Roxy to the beach - our 1st trip to the beach ever! However she cut her paw on something there and was bleeding quite badly. A lovely lady passerby helped me clean and cover up the wound with a couple of poo bags. I spoke to Downes on the phone after getting back to the car and explained the situation. They were brilliant and said to come straight over and they’d squeeze us in somehow. We were seen within 5 mins of arriving by a lovely young vet who was very gentle with Roxy. She explained everything to me clearly and told me what they would do. Thankfully the wound didn’t need stitches but they cleaned it out and bandaged it up, gave her some antibiotics and some painkillers. The receptionists were fabulous, so kind and friendly, I can’t thank them enough. I don’t think they realise how calm they kept me and how much it meant to have my baby seen so quickly. Very professional vet practise. Staff are a credit to them and the place was exceptionally clean and tidy. Thank u all again for ur help. Rhona and Roxy xx

We have used Downes ever since we moved to Barling Road. Everyone of the staff we have come into contact with have been friendly, helpful, concerned and ready to listen to your worries about your best friends. I appreciate all they have and are still doing for my pets. The only worry we have is how expensive vet fees have become, of course, we have all our pets insured as they are very important to us. But, I must admit the last bill we had for operation and all the tests and Xrays involved was steep but we have been granted the concession to pay in two parts. Our little old cat Millie's treatment is on-going so the bills are coming in monthly but hey hoo we do this for our best friends and we would never take our wonderful little friends to anywhere else but Medivet Downes, except Medivet hospital in an emergency! Thank you to all the staff at both surgeries. Dianne and Roy.

I can't rate this surgery highly enough. First class service from the minute you walk through the door, The reception staff are polite pleasant and very informative on what you need. We joined the puppy plan which i would highly recommend anyone to with a new puppy. We were seen by the vet very quickly no waiting time at all, The vet was fantastic and asked several questions with regards to our french bull dog Rocco. He made us and our puppy feel at ease and even went as far as cleaning his ears and clipping his nails something that iv'e not encountered at any vets i have had to deal with in the past. My advice would be if your looking for a local vetinary service in the southend area then look no further.

I haven't got enough good words to say about the team at Downes Thorpe Bay. They have always been knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and they have treated me and my (now sadly departed) cat with a great deal of kindness and respect. Thank you.

Excellent service from the staff today. My poor cat had to be pts and we had an appointment within an hour of phoning and the whole process couldn't have been carried out any better.

The Surgery is great, all staff are friendly and professional. Andrew is fantastic and speedily diagnosed the disorder that my beloved dog was suffering from. She is now nearly back to a full bill of health with many thanks to Andrew. Thank you Downes Team

My dog, quite frankly, is a complete wussy. All the staff at Downes go out of their way to make her feel comfortable. They are also friendly and approachable with owners:-). I’ve been going for years and wouldn’t go anywhere else!!
