Quinn was due his flu jab in May, but due to covid this was not possible, got an appointment for last Saturday, all went smoothly, gave them a call once outside, staff came out to collect Quinn, and he was returned to us, wormed and vaccinated. Staff at Watkins and Tasker are always polite and helpful. Thank you.

Flawless visit today- our cat had to have her boosters, and Watkins and Tasker in Portishead were great. Managed the whole appointment in 10 minutes, including on the phone payment, and social distanced consultation with her vet ahead of the appointment. Well done!

Always is a problem with the appointment and I often forget the important things that has to be communicated with the vet, because of the admin issue.

As always the above. Exceptional continuity of vets and helpfulness. In covid times they have strict guidelines but have managed this with their usual compassion.

I have put one for value for money and cleanliness because I haven’t been in the practice and I don’t know what I’ve been charged or what I’ve been charged for yet
