After appalling service at my previous vets I tried medivets and have had quite a bit of contact with them and they have been totally amazing and genuine and am looking forward to my dogs having their check ups without any worry. Have already recommended them and will continue to do so

Went to see vets to discover ownership background of a cat that has been coming into my garden over recent months. Cat has signs of being a stray. I had purchased myself a Pet-microchip reader and was able to provide the 15 digit code to thr receptionist, Keira. She confirmed my understanding that the cat was fully registered in the system. However, as I am not a Vet or other registered, professional pet care the online database would not disclose any detailed information about ownership of the cat or, indeed, the name of the cat. Keira did advise me that the cat's registered name was a nice name. She advised me that she would speak directly to the owner and seek the owner's permission to disclosed her contact details and name of cat to myself. This was agreed. I subsequently spoke to the owner and agreed that it was likely I would take over ownership of cat and all parties act in best interest if cat.

Had my kitten registered here since I got him in the summer, this week in typical black cat behaviour, my boy decided to go nuts which resulted in him breaking his leg🤦🏼‍♀️ I was able to get a same day appointment for x-rays, then an appointment first thing following morning for him to have surgery. The staff were absolutely amazing with the care he received, from answering my frequent calls to check in, keeping me updated on each step of his care, to being able to transport him to/from the out of hours practice in Wokingham as I don’t drive. He is now thankfully at home and recovering well. Can’t thank the staff enough for looking after my Crazy fur baby Oreo❤️
