As usual, John Ambler treated all three of my cats today with the utmost in kindness and grace, despite them telling me in no uncertain terms on the journey there that they had had it up to the back teeth with annual injections. Apparently they think they are fine and don’t need to break away from eating or lying down to go to the vets… Thanks once again John (from all of us!). Couldn’t manage without you. A true professional. Best wishes Lyn

Many thanks for your kind words. Despite the interruption to their otherwise pampered existence I still think the journey for their annual health check and vaccines is well worth it! Regards, John.

Didn't like the way the south African vet handled my dog at Tamworth, looked at us like we were bad owners, which is far from it..we loved our dog, it's just a cash cow business and are not bothered in our needs we were devastated in losing our baby.. There should be some help with low earners And not just people on benefits.

Thank you for posting this review as we always welcome feedback from our clients. It is a shame that you found our very experienced locum vet not to your liking but are very pleased to tell you that we have a lovely lady starting work with us at Tamworth who has completed several certificates and so has a wealth of knowledge. We try to not means test our clients and treat everyone equally. It is our policy to offer the best treatment at a reasonable price. Sometimes it is inevitable that clients will struggle so we then try to match the clients pocket without compromising the standard of care we offer. We offer clients our pet health club where clients are able to make good savings on preventative health care over the year and get a free consult with the vet. For clients with bills over £250 we can offer a interest free loan to cover the costs so long as they pass the credit check. We also sell food at cost price to further help our clients provide for their pets whilst saving money.

What complete " STARS " all of them. At the end of the day there is no better place to go than one that has been highly recommended. Need I say any more. Keep up the good work, you are all fantastic.

I needed an urgent appointment for my cat and called the vets at 8.15, 15 minutes before they were due to open their reception. They answered the telephone and gave me an appointment 60 minutes later. Staff were polite, kind and professional. My pet is recovering well. Thank you

Every time we have to take the dogs for some thing or other, we are greeted with friendly smiling faces. The care and compassion shown when needed was greatly appreciated. Thank you all, for your care, you give my doglets, Lucy and Millie.

I took our dog Bosun to the Atherstone Surgery to have a rather large lump removed from his side. The operation/procedure was done by John Ambler. John Ambler is firstly, a very nice, honest man, but as a Veterinary Surgeon, John Ambler has to be one of the best I've ever known. The Veterinary nurses at Atherstone, are also top class too. I came away feeling reassured, knowing that Bosun had been treated. Many thanks!

Our precious old cat had been diagnosed with diabetes and visits to other vets in past had been troubling/poor treatment etc so we were apprehensive/nervous on our first visit. However our fears were allayed not only by John Ambler's expertise in the diabetic field but also the way he spoke to us and indeed our cat. John and his team treated her for nearly 2 years, stabilised her condition and were just wonderful and patient (especially with our fretting and questions!). Age finally got the better of her and a member of the Tamworth branch came to our house to put her to sleep. Again it was done with care and dignity. Cannot recommend John and his team highly enough; they have restored out faith in vets!

I had to take my very sick and elderly cat to this vet to have her put to sleep. She was going downhill rapidly and I could see that she was suffering. Understandably, I was upset and stressed about the situation, but the vet was supportive and understanding. He quickly ascertained what was wrong with my cat (despite being examined with blood tests previously from another vet) and came to a rapid diagnosis. I was appalled at what was wrong with her, as the other vet had found nothing. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for her and he put her to sleep. If I ever have another cat I would use this practice.
