Hello, my name is Leo and I am originally from Edinburgh, Scotland. I studied Veterinary Medicine in the Wild West, (University of Glasgow) and graduated in June 2023. I have been with Medivet since October as part of their graduate programme and divide my time between the Islington Cross Street and Finsbury Park surgeries. I enjoy all aspects of general practice. However, my greatest privilege is caring for all the animals that come into the clinics and getting to know their personalities. Outside of work, I enjoy exploring the food scene of London, meeting up with friends, music and, of course, reminiscing about Glasgow.

I’ve been coming to this vet for a while now ( only because it’s a 5 minute walk away from where I live) but the service is always HORRIBLE, staff are very very unhelpful and rude , they cannot be asked to help you when you have a query and they are very strict on appointment times yet when they make a mistake or an error there is no accountability for wasting your time. Their services are always claimed to be down too , maybe try sorting that out ? I went there for my appointment at 10am in which I had an appointment slip that stated my exact date and time and she told me it was for the week after with a very blunt facial expression and tone?? So unorganised . Vets should be there for animals but these lot are only here for the money . Should Only be doing a job with love and care in a field like that !!

By far the best experience I have ever had with a veterinary team. They care as much about our animals as we do! Through ups and downs, David and his team support has been unwavering. We can’t thank them enough for their dedication.

Find another practice. Medivet became an industry and pets are not the core business anymore. The staff is very unfriendly. I had a double appointment for vaccinations for 2 dogs. It was a late vaccination as we haven't received any alert.Imagine putting 2 Jack Russells in a car and driving etc. Unfortunately there was too much traffic (more than usual). So I arrived exactly 8 mins late. Dogs were VERY distressed to be in the vet, as well as we were.After sitting and starting to wait - the receptionist, in the most cynical tone of voice, just said: "If you were coming late, you should have called us. I'll see if we still can take care of your pets". This was outrageous. Zero empathy for the distressed dogs shaking. When I was telling her that usually, when we arrive on time, they make us wait for +10 minutes - suddenly a not friendly woman came and started (yelling) accusing me of being abusive to the receptionist. And that was not true. In addition she kept into her monologue as if she was my mother or my boss! That is clearly an issue. Prior to my departure from the clinic, when I was paying, she started all the monologue again - when I clearly stated: "Can I please just pay and leave, I can't look at you anymore." She then accused me of making a sexist comment (What?!?!!). Besides they are not capable of guiding dog owners for the basics. After 5 years there I thankfully found a professional clinic where I was told about Lung Worms (apparently epidemic in London parks) which any Medivet staff ever mentioned. Also, never mentioned about registering pets in UK database (as they come from overseas). I learned in the new clinic.

Went for my second visit yesterday, puppy vaccinations. The girls were really excited to be back there and the whole process went painlessly, they didn't complain one bit.

Inflated prices Medivet in Cross street quoted over £1,500 for dental care for my dog. In view of this very high price, I contacted another vet and they charged me just over £500 for carrying out the same dental work. The £500 included medication and 3 additional visits to check on the outcome of the procedure. They have carried out a wonderful job. More recently, I contacted Medivet again (they are my local vet) and asked for a quote for squeezing my dog's anal gland - their quote was £330. When I enquired why the quote is so high, they said that they would perform the procedure under anaesthesia. Other vets quoted around £30. There is a risk involved with the use of anaesthesia and it is best to avoid it, if possible. According to other vets, there is no need for anaesthesia for a simple procedure such as squeezing a dog's anal gland. It appears that as far as Medivet is concerned, the main consideration is financial and not the welfare of the animal.

The cost of the treatment was quite eye-watering. For a cat dental descale the base price was £395 but with a single additional extraction it was an additional £200 - £600 in total. This is more than I would pay for human treatment. Its hardly surprising the CMA is investigating vet pricing and I fear the sector is in danger of killing the golden goose. This is sadly a reflection of PE sector consolidation and price gouging.
