I started at Medivet Gatley in October after completing my training at Ashton 24hr. I moved to Ashton at the end of November as all the staff were very friendly and helped me with my training. In my spare time I like to go for walks with my husband and dog Bruno. Family time is very important to me and I love spending time with them.

This vet is wonderful! The best vet practice and my mum agrees the staff on reception are lovely and the vets are great! Clover enjoys going to the vet even though she’s had a vaccine every time! They are fabulous with the animals and booking appointments/payment is super easy! Amazing! Thank you - Sadie and Clover

I can't even bring myself to award this establishment 1 star for what they did. Our cat was sadly hit by a car and died and taken to this location to identify - this was the only thing they got right. On attending, identifying and instructing the young girl (who clearly had no idea what she was doing but grief blinded the obvious) to arrange private cremation and keepsakes and updated contact details - this all went wrong. I hope Mr Ian Mcconnell reads this and feels proud of his staff!! 1. Details incorrectly recorded. 2. Initially they couldn't find out what had happened to him on going to the crematorium therefore unable to update us when we rang to check on progress. 3. The young girl in reception 3 times went to ask a Nurse and Vet what process she should do. 4. The Nurse and Vet who have "dedicated their lives to the care of animals" were "TOO BUSY TO ASSIST" so felt unable to suggest my wife and daughter wait for a while until they were free to assist. They clearly lack dedication and empathy and should maybe consider a career change. 5. No checks were made during down time re the work completed by the Receptionist. 6. Incorrect recording by the Receptionist. 7. He was placed in a bag for disposal communally, wrongly tagged. How difficult is it to use the correct colour bag, correct matching tag, record it and confirm? Then when collection is made, confirm records correspond to the diary? We have been advised everything was destroyed, no keepsakes, and staff involved received verbal warnings. Should staff not be trained correctly and a fail safe procedure be in place? It's really not that difficult is it? And employ staff who care!!! Please note. No response from the review. Happy to thank positive comments … ignore negative. Excellent business model !!

24th January 2024, at 3.00am Medivets ASHTON Mossley, OUT OF HOURS SERVICE. I telephoned the above Branch of Medivets OUT OF HOURS SERVICE to be greeted with sorry cannot see you because I have no notes and no Nurse. Where you live? Only to be told go to Chorley. I asked the vet to repeat what he had said, as I was in shock to what I was hearing, Chorley! I cannot help you, as I have no nurse. I asked the vet is this not the OUT OF HOURS? Sorry, cannot help you, then the call ended. I was not asked what the EMERGENCY WAS. The call from start to finish lasted 1 minute. What a DISGUSTING Branch of Medivets. You call yourselves Professionals, last nights response fell well below Veterinarian Professional Standards. The EMERGENCY was our German Shepherd who had had surgery only five days earlier, had started vomiting up blood not only once, but three times. Lucky, for us we were assisted by two other Veterinary practices

After 13 years of excellent care I am disappointed by the surge in prices since Medivet took over. The tablets have doubled in price in some instances, £40.00 for 1 week antibiotics, that used to be £18.00. under the previous owner and £11 online. Unfortunately, I am going to have to look for another vets. Like a previous commentator mentioned, it is not the same as it used to be. It is now the norm to be waiting 20/40 minutes longer than your appointment time. It's a shame as I don't feel as good going here as I used to. The in house medication is astronomically charged, which you are then told, 'it's okay' we can do you a prescription for you to buy your products online, the problem is they want money for the prescription, which in reality could be easily printed off. It's definitely not worth over £20 for a piece of paper. They have you in every way possible. But it was definitely better under the old ownership of Ian McConnell
