John Ambler is very knowledgeable about FIV. my cat Minstrel had FIV and previous vets weren't very good with him. I was recommended to go to Oakfields at Atherstone and was glad that I took Minstrel there as he received excellent care there. Sadly he died yesterday but everyone there was very sensitive to my loss. I couldnt have asked for more.

Vet Response

Hi Barry. Thank you for your review and lovely comments. I will pass these on to the vet who looked after Minstrel. We also send our condolences to Minstrel's family. Kind regards, Oakfield

We recently lost our beloved dog Rea and can only say how kind and thoughtful John and his team were during this very sad time. They even found time to send a hand written card with some wonderful words for which we thank them. They were always there to offer advice and support and the care they gave Rea cannot be faulted. They offer an excellent service, if you need a Vet, look no further.

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

Vet Response

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.

Vet Response

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
