Excellent service - with Coronavirus causing no end of problems in society, W&T were happy to give my puppy his third set of injections. Because no humans were allowed inside the building I called on my mobile when I arrived and a vet came out and got the dog out of the boot of the car. He returned him a few minutes later happy and with his claws trimmed and also handed over flea/worming tablets for the next three months. An excellent service, despite the trying times.

Excellent service as ever. I would not entrust my pets to any other vets in this area. All members of W&T staff are at the top of their game whether they are vets, nurses or support staff. I simply cannot vault their level of service.

All of the staff at Watkins & Tasker Portishead are wonderful. As well as offering the best care & attention for our dog, who they clearly also love, they are incredibly warm, welcoming & friendly every time we visit. We couldn’t ask for more or better. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who loves their pet(s) & wants the best for them.
