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!
Very friendly and helpful
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!
Very helpful staff and the vet me and Tiger saw was excellent at dealing with a very nervy patient.
Always good with my dogs
Firstly a friend to animals and owners secondly a vet very reliable friend off family 4 dogha ha there 24 ___7 no sweat
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
I wouldn't take my pet's anywhere else.
This evening we had our precious cat of 19yrs put to sleep. Vaughan and his staff were excellent. So compassionate and caring and allowed us time at the end to say our goodbyes without being rushed or pressured.
Superb service as always 👍👍
Lovely veterinary surgery, very kind helpful staff, and the vet was so patient with my pup. he explained everything to me properly, which gave me peace of mind. Overall, it was a great experience
This is the local vet for Alderholt. We have been taking our pets there for year's and Vaugh is great.Always friendly and reliable. We really recommend going there.Another visit this for flash. Always a friendly team.
Really good vets. Vaughan is absolutely brilliant with our dogs and always gives us great advice
Lovely friendly staff and brilliant team,excellent quick service, caring and extremely professional, couldn't wish for anything better for my pets
My kitten was in for castration and id chip. Collected him this evening. All went ok. The ideal thing is they are only a couple of minutes away from my house. I trust them. That's the main important thing for me.

Staff so friendly and helpful. The locum vet Morgan so knowledgeable and informative
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 "
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,
Under new ownership.Husband and wife vets..Very kind, knowledgeable and caring
An absolute top of the range, for this veterinary surgery practitioners and their excellent staff. I cannot speak high enough for their skills, their attention to the clients needs, the overall professional practices shown and, follow-up care policies. A truly first class organisation.
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.
Great to have a vet so close and local - but like all vets treatment is expensive
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
Treated Amazing
Amazing team who will take great care of your pet.
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!!
