A miracle happened, excellent service and an incredible outcome, thanks to Vet Kat and the tremendously kind ladies at reception. Before arriving we were afraid our cat would die. We were reassured on arrival and even offered cups of tea. Kat was wonderful, we think going above and beyond. Knowledgeable, kind, informative, giving us options. Having done a scan, we came away with a treatment we hadn't dared hope for. Our cat has perked up and seems to be getting better. Our first time to this practice and certainly recommend. Despite these words, it's difficult to say how grateful we are. Thank you all. Ps - we had to take our cat back. Again, we received wonderful help and care from vet Claire.

Fantastic vets. I have moved away from Colchester now but still travel 40mins to have my pets seen by the best. The care is exceptional, all the vets both my exotics and my cat and dog have seen have gone above and beyond to help regardless if it’s a routine check up or a serious problem. I’ve never felt rushed and the care this vets provides to both animals and their owners is outstanding.

I recently took my two Maine Coons to this vet for a health check, and I was thoroughly impressed. The staff were incredibly friendly, creating a welcoming atmosphere from the moment we arrived. The doctor was exceptionally attentive, showing genuine care and concern for my pets' well-being. Overall, it was a positive experience, and I would highly recommend this vet to other pet owners.
