They are there for our family of pets when we need them. So kind.
Treated Amazing
Very helpful staff and the vet me and Tiger saw was excellent at dealing with a very nervy patient.
The team and three cross vets have always been super helpful, thoughtful and sympathetic. Received great treatment for our elderly dog and have for a long time. Highly recommended.
Fiona was absolutely brilliant when we bought our cat, Walter in with a skin issue. Friendly and informative. I don’t think Walter wanted to leave! Thank you Fiona
Response from the owner: Thank you for your lovely review. Fiona very much enjoyed meeting yourselves and the lovely Walter, and hopes he is feeling better now!
Charming staff. And friendly atmosphere. I recommend.
Great vet and great staff
Friendly, helpful staff.
Great to have a vet so close and local - but like all vets treatment is expensive
Miła obsługa oraz dobre podejście do zwierząt ❤️
Always good with my dogs
We have been with Alderholt Vets over 6 years and we can only give praise for the way that Vaughan and his team have looked after our Staffy X Miss Summer. If you are looking for a Vet then I would recommend you give Alderholt Vets a call. Thank you.Richard
Been taking our cats here for over ten years since we moved down from Cheshire. The level of care is second to none. That's all I need to say!
On holiday in the area,fitted me in within an hour,think they were possibly closing.Saw Frankie and assure me he seemed ok,having jumped all over the vet !! Saw them again the following day,did some tests all ok,panicking owner !! Very friendly and would definitely go back again if needed.
Response from the owner: It was a pleasure to meet yourselves and Frankie - he is a lovely boy and we hope he has bounced back now!
Fantastic service.Went in while on holiday to purchase a tic remover and the vet came out and did it for us as knew we were worried
Great service, very good vet.
Always very good. Reception and nurses as well as vet excellent
You always get more than you went for. The vets are mines of information which they share generously in answer to questions.My pets are safe in their care.
Very good service, kept up to date and price of any treatment
Lovely vets very good and compassionate about the animals that they treat very happy here
Always friendly and have genuine concern for the animals they treat. Plenty of parking and a clean environment.
Very caring and sympathetic on the loss of our lovely ginger cat Berty. Thankyou to you all.
I wouldn't take my pet's anywhere else.
Fantastic as ever.Lovely staff .have been going there for years and will not change.
Lovely friendly staff and brilliant team,excellent quick service, caring and extremely professional, couldn't wish for anything better for my pets
Always EXCELLENT service, and VERY friendly/welcoming staff.
Superb service as always 👍👍
Really good vets. Vaughan is absolutely brilliant with our dogs and always gives us great advice
It's joint with my local vets at Alderholt, and i can honestly say i wouldn't go anywhere eles, they have a lot of compassion when it comes down to our pets/fur babies and they are very friendly and welcoming, i was there a couple of weeks ago with my cat and on examination he had to have x-rays galore, the receptionist knew i was worried and she so reassuring, she even offered me a cup of tea which was nice,
Highly recommended 👌
Just registered with the new vets. We were very impressed following our first meeting. Booked 2 of our dogs for their routine checks.
Response from the owner: We look forward to meeting them all again after their intro visit (hopefully not too often if they can stay out of mischief)
Professional and friendly great attention to detail..Been a client for many years with various animals ....good luck to Vaughan for the future
Great service, seen quickly, great advice and highly recommend Vaughn and the team xxx
First visit was excellent. We have 5 dogs and looking forward to using hydro therapy pool for our 15 year old springer
We use the vet centre for our poodles treatment and grooming. The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and caring.
Mika with her pretty bandages after 2, interdigital cysts were removed. The operation went well and the care has been wonderful. Everything is explained carefully and the estimated price for her op came out exactly as predicted. Mika is healing well, thank goodness! Great work Vaughn and thank you!!
Heath check and found time to trim clowes CARING isGreat service jk
Thank you for saving our Bertie, we can't thank everyone enough. Vaughan and his team showed so much genuine care, kindness and compassion to our "wee man "
I cannot thank Jeremy and the team for the fantastic support they gave my wife and I when our beloved St Bernard Mungo required emergency treatment to address a really nasty and potentially life threatening bladder issue. Informative and consultative throughout both Vaughan and latterly Jeremy were very reassuring throughout the process and took wonderful care of our gangly legged bundle of fun and confusion. I am pleased to say he left the vets after some major surgery in very good health and the operation has been a major success - this vets practice cannot be recommended enough - we have had some difficult and challenging interactions with other vet practices in the past and were very worried about getting the care we needed for our faithful hound - we need not have worried and a real sign of this was on his follow up Mungo trotted up to Jeremy, did the traditional St Bernard lean against him and looked up with a lot of thanks in his eyes. If you are looking for a vet practice go no further than this one
Under new ownership.Husband and wife vets..Very kind, knowledgeable and caring
