I would like to thank your Vet Chris for being so friendly, patient and professional every time he has dealt with our Staffie Molly. He has treated her a number of times and is always willing to go the extra mile and he phones and gets back to you when he says he will. He always has a smile and a treat for Molly at the end of the visit. He is a true credit to your organisation and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

We have had several experience's with these Guys both as Penrose and VNE. We have only had need to use their out of hours service to treat those woofers and pussycat during their last moments in life. So we have no experience of their normal daily practice. But the response from them in out of hours booking, immediate availability, response on arrival, access to immediate attention to our Pet, back up and support from reception and the Vet, was totally totally first class, and cannot be faulted. That care started from the moment we spoke to them on the phone all the way thro to getting the cask of ashes to take back home. We cannot comment on all their Vets, who we know have that same inbred dedication to animal care, but for us we only ever saw Albert, who bless him was there for us thro those very difficult moments, and those on reception were just the best.

We have been taking our two dogs here for a number of years and I cannot fault the service received. The vets are extremely professional, not in the least bit patronising and seem to really try and help provide the most options they can for treatment. I like the way they always seem to be looking at, and aware of, new treatments and procedures. One of our dogs has to go regularly for tests and check ups but is always delighted to see our vet - I think that says a great deal!

All the staff, without exception are wonderful. My Springer Spaniel has had a number of visits recently including scans and surgery and he still drags me IN to the practice. The care our animals receive here is exemplary.

I had been taking Riley to Penrose Colchester for the last 10 years and the care he had received during that time was excellent. When he suddenly became ill just before Christmas they fitted us in very quickly, kept me fully up to date regarding his care and the various tests needed and looked after him well during his final two days. Sadly he deteriorated very quickly and I had to make the decision to put him to sleep. Jo is a wonderful vet and she, Terri and everyone else I saw were incredibly sensitive and compassionate at this very difficult time. He went very peacefully and I spent time alone with him before and after he was put to sleep. Very highly recommended.

Very attentive and supportive veterinary help through a difficult time. All staff - including reception - were friendly, caring, and generous with their time.

Vet Response

Penrose Veterinary Group Ltd has had a ‘zero tolerance’ attitude towards violence. Our staff should be able to come to work without fear of violence, abuse or harassment from clients. In most cases, our clients will be appreciative towards our staff but a minority of people are abusive or violent towards staff. Penrose Veterinary Group Ltd is committed to dealing with this problem and will take appropriate action where needed.
