This was our first visit and it was completely ruined by the reception staff who were both trainee's and did not know what they were doing. There was a manager in the middle who was like a rabbit in headlights, a total mess.
Vet ResponseI'm sorry for the inconvenience caused during your visit to our hospital, you are right that the two receptionists were training, it was their first day, so unfortunately they made some understandable errors. The surgery gets very busy and can be overwhelming for new starters. I hope you understand why this lead to a reduction in the service level provided and that they will certainly improve as they grow with us. However it is regrettable that this had such a negative impact for you, for which, I apologise. Dr Peter Richards BVSc MRCVS

Our 4 year old labrador managed to impale herself when leaping over a log. I managed to walk her back to the car and drove her to you, having been advosed to put a pressure bamdage on her. She had severed a main vein in her groin and had lost about 600 mls of blood. After a really tricky operation and many weeks of recovery, Saffy is bounding with energy, running up and down the South Downs and swimming in Chichester Estuary. Also had brilliant back-up from Vets4pets in Chichester. Many many thanks.
Vet ResponseHi, I'm really pleased to hear she's doing well, it was a bad injury so it's great to get feedback that she did well

I brought both my cats in last week to be spayed and from the offset it was a very professional experience, all the staff from the reception staff to the nurse were very friendly and informative. We also received a phone call the next day asking how they were which I thought was a lovely caring touch. I can't fault the experience and friendliness of everyone. Will definitely be recommending this vets and using it again in the future

Great vets with lovely staff especially the receptionist Sheila who always makes a fuss of my two dogs. All treatment I have received for my 2 dogs has been good with follow up care. Open 24 hours so always able to get an appointment promptly. The vets do give out very good advice. Would recommend
Vet ResponseThank you, that's lovely to hear

I have used Barnsley Vets For Pets for all of my pets. I have found them to be friendly and always good with the animals. I recently had to rush my dog through and it came as a huge shock when we had to make the decision to put him to sleep. We were heartbroken but the vet Vicktor and all of the staff were amazing. They show such love and compassion for our beloved pet and every time I rang they offered me reassurance and nothing was too much trouble. I have used another vets in the past and it felt clinical and cold - the receptionists booked you in and took your money with no care or concern for me and my pet. The vets weren't much better. But in Vets for pets it feels so different. All the staff chat , fuss over your animals , offer support and genuinely seem to love working with them. so thank you to all of you and keep doing what you are doing - you are all FAB!

Vet ResponseDear Andrew, I apologise that you didn't receive the pre-operative phone call which we usually do, the nurse who was tasked with that day's calls misunderstood the request note, and thought the phone call had already been performed, she asked me to pass on her apologies for the misunderstanding. I spoke with the admissions nurse who saw you yesterday morning and she passed on your complaint at the time and then I understand you spoke with my wife Caroline after the laparoscopy who also apologised to you. We believe that the minimally invasive nature of laparoscopic surgery is of great benefit to our patients in reducing pain and post operative complications, and we offer this service at a very reasonable price when compared to other practices who do keyhole surgery, our prices range from £180-£270 where most charges I have seen elsewhere are over £400. The operation was performed quickly and efficiently and I understand she was back with you within a few hours after dropping her off. I'm pleased to note that you had your post-operative phone call this lunchtime and would hope that you could judge us on the quality of these events rather than the omission of the pre-op call which appears to have been a genuine misunderstanding. Kind regards, Peter

I basically said everything above in the reason for my score, I know it's a hamster and not a large animal or pet but stormfly was our pet we loved her just the same as we would a dog etc and the vets were absolutely fantastic the receptionists also were brilliant they were all sympathetic, kind, loving, gentle people and I couldn't thank Them enough for today, we were very upset even though we held back the emotions until we got home but everyone at the practice were so lovely! And kind and sympathetic thank you guys for everything keep up the good work!! X
Vet ResponseThank you for your kind words

My little Boarder Terrier (Ginny) has only been there on 2 occasions for her initial jabs and on both occasions she was made welcome and found the Staff great. Thanks V4P for this great service. Highly recommended.
