After bringing my rabbit to you yesterday fearing he had gut stasis you treated him with a gut stimulant injection and gave us syringe food to feed him at home. Our rabbit has had this problem 4 times now so we are very familiar with how to treat him, we asked why you hadnt prescribed him with the normal drugs that we give to him at home and you said he didn't need them and to phone back at the end of the day if he wasnt eating still. We phoned back that evening as he hadnt improved, with the medication he normally picks up quite quickly , we asked on the phone if he could now have some medication and the receptionist told me you do not have any in stock and that's why he wasnt given any. We paid £53 yesterday and weve just had to take him to another vet as we have lost confidence in you, we feel like because you didn't have the medicine in stock you lied to us saying he didn't need it. We have just had to pay a further £85 for more injections and the medication he needed yesterday. Really disappointed you didn't consult us and be honest that you didn't have the drugs before treating him as we would have chosen to take him else where.

On the 2nd December 2019, I had to say goodbye to my gorgeous boy Sooty. For me, he wasn't just our family cat he was my beloved boy whom we all loved so much and for so long. It was such a difficult decision that I had been putting off for so long, through selfish reasons of my own and not wanting to let him go. My old boy was 21 yrs old! From the moment I telephoned Oakfield in Atherstone to the day of Sootys appointment, Oakfield showed such care and kindness towards Sooty and me. I will be ever grateful to the lovely young lady (Vet) who showed such professionalism and empathy when my boy Sooty left so content and peacefully. I have visited many vets but this one for me stands above the rest and whom I have recommended to all my animal loving friends and family.

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.

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

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.
