What an amazing veterinary practice. Such kindness, care and a genuine love of animals. Every member of staff is truly exceptional. How lucky is my puppy to have this surgery on our doorstep. Thank you Swanspool.

I left a review on the 13th April. They should have been all 5 stars for Swanspool. Not a 3 for friendliness. Apologies x

Exceptional care over many years now for all our cats, including quite a few emergencies and unusual ailments that have always been dealt with so well. What’s also important is that all the vets at Swanspool can talk to people as well as care for the animals, and that’s not always been my experience in other practices.

Best practice in the town. Been using it for over 20 years for all my cats. Having moved back to Northampton I return here for the care and service given! Out of all the good vets here Anna is a star - always giving the best advice and support. Thanks!

My cat was recently diagnosed with a very rare syndrome that neither I nor John had heard of. I am so grateful that John listened to me after I had spent days on Google and did his own research to come up with the best treatment. From what I have read online not a lot of vets would’ve been so receptive but thanks to John I now have a (fairly) happy cat back again. Very grateful.

Sadly we've said goodbye to our special friend Ali.Due to Swanspool's compassionate staff this was made more bearable.Thank you John Bowie and staff for the wonderful care given to Ali over the past years.

Wouldn’t go anywhere else. We have had various pets over the years, mice, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pig, rabbits and now dogs and whichever pet came in we had the same level of care and concern for the welfare of our pet. Always helpful and ready to give advice, such a great team.

whether your visit is routine, emergency or a phone call for advice nothing is too much trouble for anyone who works at Swanspool Vets. You always feel like your pet and yourself are the most important person that has visited them. you never feel that you are rushed in and out of the practice.

We wouldn't have our three horses today if it weren't for the wonderful vets at Swanspool. They've saved one of our horse's life more than once. We can never thank then enough
