Excellent boarding kennels. Helpful and engaging staff. First-class care of our dog. All you could wish for.

I took my 8 week Doberman for his inoculations. A really calm and relaxed environment, the wee lad was very happy.

These people are amazing. Being an animal lover all my life I'm very picky about who cares for my pets when they are poorly. I drive past 4 other vets closer to my home in order to take my pets here. They are all including reception staff, to the nurses, to the vets, so helpful, and when things are taking a turn for the worse they have great compassion and skill at helping one come to the right decisions for you and your pet. I wish they could treat humans as I'd be on their books immediately! Lol

On Saturday morning, I had to get my 15year old cat Rosie put to sleep,the staff were very understanding,they sent me a lovely card with Rosie's paw prints on it and a lovely message,this staff is first class,if I could give 10 stars I would, thanks girls, Rosie is a great miss as I got her at 8 weeks old,her previous owner was going to put her in the bin in plastic bag but my son rescued her, I'm lost without her.

Wouldn't take my pets anywhere else! Lovely staff, very helpful. We've been there a few times with my cat that's forever getting bladder problems and they treat him so well. They seem to really love animals and remember our names and our cats! Can't recommend highly enough!
