Andy was really amazing with my extremely anxious rescue girl. He is so kind, empathetic, gentle and kind. He ensured that my girl was as prepared as possible with pre-appointment sedation and then assessed her anxiety and tailored the visit to cause her the least stress possible. He couldn’t have done better for her. Thank you Andy.

Fantastic, I had a problem with the travel Documents for the dog and Andy helped me get through this at short notice even though he could have said it was too problematic. So I highly recommend the practice in Wool. Have been with them for years and never disappointed always willing to help and go the extra mile

Have been with this practice for 7 years & service used to be amazing. Now it’s someone different you see every time we visit with no continuity & sadly it seems that money has now taken over quality of service with now needing to pay admin fees for insurance claims & not really knowing what’s already been paid for or refunded. My pets care will always come first which is why I pay such high premiums for insurance but draw the line on paying again for costs that surely should be within the original bill & then being spoken down to when questioning said bills. Gutted to be in this position after such great care & service in the past.

I am so grateful to have found this medivet practice, I was introduced through a family member and I will stay with them.. Andy the main vet is the best I have met, he has been amazing with my Alfie. To have found a vet that doesn’t over complicate things and doesn’t oversell or push for unnecessary test and procedures is a Godsend! I understand now why my family travel over an hour to see you!! Thanks Alfie 🐶
