I cannot thank the vets here enough especially Rebecca i recently had to euthanize my dear pug and they were all fantastic so polite and caring all the way through i would recommend this branch to anyone, not your usual vets they really all care from the nurses to the reception staff a1 service

My wife and I cannot thank vet Rebecca enough for the unhurried, compassionate and caring way she placed our 15 year old dog, Maggie, on a fluffy rug and respectfully ended her suffering, taking Maggie away from her illness. Thank you so much. So glad we very recently changed to Companion Care Vets and Maggie was given a dignified end to her wonderful life.

We have recently become regular users of this vetenary clinic for our 4 rats. Every time we come in we are greeted with a smile and literally the best service we could ask for, especially Bridget and Ruth (and the receptionists whos names we do not know! Sorry!) who have been amazing at treating our rats and making us feel at ease with our issues. Today we had to have one of our girls operated on, Bridget did an amazing job on such a horrible tumour and saved our little rats life. Can’t thank everyone who works at this clinic enough for everything they’ve done to help us, would absolutely reccomend to anyone!!

Was very disappointed that I took my cat and friend aged 23 to end her life. I was made to wait 20 minutes over my appointment time in the consolation room. When we arrived she was very calm and placed her head in my hand whilst laid down. After 10 minutes she became very stressed out and I felt very upset for her. This should have been a very quick and stress free exsperience for my friend dinky and me but unfortunately it was full of stress and upset for us both. If I had been there for just a check up I would have left and took her somewhere else but I could not do that You can imagine my distress. My experience at my friends end of life was not what it should have been and that is because of the bad workings of this vet service. I will remember this forever.

Vet Response

Thank you for leaving your review and I am sorry that you were disappointed with the service you received at the practice at this distressing time. We were running a little behind schedule and thank you for your patience whilst in the quiet consultation room. We understand this is a stressful time and when you are ready if you would like to discuss this further, please contact Ruth Tullie at the practice she will be more than happy to talk this through with you.​

I took my dog for micro chip, I also enquired about nail clipping and was able to add this to the appointment. The receptionist was so very friendly and helpful. The vet was very understanding as my dog is not the best patient. They took time and had a great manner. Totally recommend for anyone to use this service. Thank you very much

Our dog became gravely unwell over the weekend and despite not being registered companion care were so helpful and we were in within hours. Sadly our shadow had to be put to sleep but the lovely vet came out and treated him in the car when it was apparent he was too poorly to be moved inside. They were so respectful and went out of their way to help is when we needed them. We won't forget that! Thank you :)

Saved our cats life not once but twice! Acted so quickly after he was hit by car and the same when he went into acute renal failure two weeks later! Made it easy to get specialist treatment and dealt with the insurance claim. Six months later he is enjoying the summer sun!

I had to bring in a sick chicken that I was house sitting on a busy Sunday and the service could not have been better. The receptionist was extremely professional when I phoned in the morning and rang back before she said she would. An appointment was made and it was explained that I might have to wait a while. Despite this service was very prompt and professional. I felt very confident that the care the vet provided - both medicine for the condition and rehydration with saline / sugar solution - has given my patient the best possible chance of survival. Oh AND the bill at the end was very reasonable. Thank you very much from Anna and Raggles.

Whenever I visit the vets I'm really impressed with the service. I never feel like the staff are in a rush, they spend time explaining everything clearly. I ask loads of questions and Ruth Tully is always willing to answer them, never seems exasperated and explains things in a way I can easily understand. Sometimes people suggest that vets are after your money but I feel that this practice has nothing but the best interests interests of my pets at heart. I have total faith in their advice. Thank you for such wonderful service.

The receptionist Sharon(sorry not sure about the name?) is absolutely lovely and helpful when making an appointment. Had to go to this vet, which is inside pets at home near Shirley, with my hamster Olly, who I sadly had to let go. The staff were absolutely lovely and gave me time to say goodbye. I also went there with my rat Bella and Fizz and they were absolutely wonderful with my little rodents. They are patient, polite and easy to talk to. The best vet practice I ever went. I am a female Dr. Doolittle and I feel understood and my pets are greatly cared for. I will be bringing my Kitten Lenny soon for his vaccinations and microchipping! Very much recommended!
