Thank you to everyone at Medivet Canvey Island, who cared for my kitten Nova during her stay with you due to being spayed. From the first phone call I made when I registered her, I felt that you were all kind and caring, and had empathy. Everyone I have had contact with when visiting Medivets, for vaccinations, setting up monthly Pet Plan for flea and worming treatments and check ups have been friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend Medivet Canvey Island to other pet owners. Thank you again!

* Although we’re happy to see these pets at the practice, we advise checking with us that the vet who can offer the service is available on the day of your preferred booking.
