Transferred animals here some years ago from a "high street" operation that used mainly locums, what a difference! Our Springer got eye problem on evening walk, called in morning and offered emergency appointment as soon as I could get him there, examined and operated on that morning, thorn had embedded in cornea! Fluid loss stemmed and excellent recover prognosis! Jonathan, you and the rest of team are absolute stars, with deserved high local recognition. Sincere thanks from B's grateful owners.

We have had dogs for over 40 years and been with this practise for 12 years or so. We have continually been impressed with the compassion and friendliness exhibited by this practise. Particularly Anna who helped our retired guide dog through a recent stroke. We have experienced many vets throughout our peripatetic life: this has without doubt been the best.

We are a Charity with 13 horses and Swanspool have been terrific and helped us and our team of elderly Therapy horses in every way they could especially when it comes to saying the final goodbye. They are so respectful and caring of us and the animal. All staff adore their jobs and are full of love and care and it has never been about money.

I cannot fault our vet, they are absolutely fantastic. Every time I have rang for an appointment they always get us in within a day or 2 depending on the urgency, they are always friendly, helpful, wonderful with our animals from the receptionist to the vet, all the staff have always given our animals and us 5 star treatment and they genuinely care for our animals. Highly recommended.
