We've used Medivet for year's. Always nice, friendly nurse's and vet's, who are caring and compassionate.

I have been a client of Medivet Watford for a few years now and have all my small animals registered with the practice (dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, budgies etc). I have had several emergencies and out of hours issues during this time (mostly gi stasis in rabbits, but this weekend one of my dogs fractured his toe while out on a walk and had to be rushed there). In these situations it has always been easy to get through to the practice on the telephone and I have always told to come straight away, even when there have been no appointments or it has been the middle of the night. All of the staff (vets, nurses and support staff) are experienced and particularly rabbit savvy, as well as caring and compassionate to both the animal and the distressed owner! The Medivet facilities are state of the art and I know that whatever CAN be done to make my animals better WILL be done (if it's in the animal's best interest, obviously). The whole attitude of the staff at Medivet Watford is different to people at other vets I've been with - they talk to you like an intelligent human being, and talk to your animals too (at most practices it seems people talk ABOUT your animals, and never TO them!).

I have just been through quite a traumatic week as one of my cats hadn't eaten for 24 hours, & was lethargic. I got an appointment at my local Medivet clinic at Risedale & he was examined, he had a temperature & it was decided that my cat would be admitted for further test. The staff at Risedale were fantastic as usual, but my cat was transferred to the 24 hour Watford clinic for the tests & scans. It was a very worrying time but I was kept up to date with his condition. He was diagnosed with an infection which had enlarged his lymph nodes. He was monitored & treated with intravenous fluids & antibiotics. Thankfully eventually his temperature came down he started eating & was getting back to his smoochy self & could come home. He will have follow up appointments & treatment at my local Risedale clinic, but I am so happy to have him home & am so grateful to all the vet's particularly Rena & Thora & all the staff at Watford for their support & care. Also to Risedale who know all my cats & are always caring & supportive especially Kyumi

The vet in my last visit was lovely. She was polite, patient, understanding and showed great empathy. She took time to check our ailing rabbit thoroughly and helped in every way she could. We didn't feel rushed; we felt genuinely listened to. Before we joined Medivet our rabbit had died of stasis at the hands of a different vet who clearly knew nothing about rabbits. I'm greatly saddened by the certainty that Medivet could have saved our previous rabbit. I am, at the same time grateful, that we have since found Medivet. All my visits to Medivet Watford have been extremely positive. I highly recommend them when appropriate.

My cat had a very sore paw and I was feeling anxious about what the treatment might be. As soon as arrived I received a professional greeting and awaited my turn. The wait was not too long and the vet came and collected us and took him into the surgery. She was very gentle with him and asked me to hold him while she cleaned his paw. I was very happy with the treatment she gave him which included antibiotics and painkillers. She took time to ensure I understood what I needed to do at home and how to administer his medicine. I am always happy with the care my cat and dog receive at this practice and would be happy to recommend them.

We had to rush our sick rabbit to medivet last Sunday as he was sick, we had already taken him to another vet on the Saturday, but he sent us home with some Recovery medicine for him, but Gizmo was just not interested in it. So we phoned medivet who told us to come at once so they could see him, but when we arrived and they examined him, they were very straight with us, and told us they would do what they could for him, and took him from us. I knew then I would not see him again it was heartbreaking. We left in tears,a few hours later we got the call we were expecting , that he had passed away, they had tried to save him but he was just too sick. I just want to thank the staff for everything , they were kind and considerate. We received a condolence card today from them, which brought me to tears yet again, but will treasure it
