"Nemo hear surgery"

I cannot put into words the care and professionalism of vets1 they are all amazing from the minute you walk through the door and to when you leave. While sitting in the waiting room you see people and pets come and go and they treat every individual so special Our little dog Nemo has just had heart surgery quite a complex case the care and compassion was unbelievable, we have Nemo home with us this evening and sleeping beside me, if it wasn’t for the professionalisms of Robert who has seen us through from beginning to end and also Catherine who also without her professionalisms and the many others involved we cannot thank you all enough. You have all given Nemo to hopefully lead a normal life. We as a family cannot thank you all enough. Thank you all so much. Xxx


"Dog with oral cancer"

Katherine's skill coupled with the team effort always evident at this practice has worked a miracle for our pet. They are caring and kind and everyone gives 100%. Highly recommend Vets 1. They are simply the best.

"brandy . noah . poppy. and bear"

Thank you vets 1 for the care of my pocheis . I so appreciate the care and respect all you guys have given my dogs . especially your little star noah who fully recovered from his back leg having to be amputated the care u gave him was overwhelming he is so full of happiness an plenty of speed ...
U sure make the pet ur priority an give as much time as u can to both pets an owners paper work always comes last .. I travel 22 miles to visit this vet but wud never use another aa long as I have my pets

"Equine dentistry"

I have worked alongside vets 1 for a while now (being an equine dentist myself, sedation is sometimes required by the vets) and would highly recommend to any person to use not just for equines but small animals too. They are fast, sufficient, friendly, skilled, polite and very knowledgeable in every aspect.
All of my clients are recommended to use vets 1 if I am every asked because I have had no problems throughout my career so far and my animals are happy too. (Cats, horses, dog and fish!)

"WONDERFUL caring practice.."

wow!! is how I put all aspects of Vets1
everything is A+ from wonderful friendly service to professional care..


Cant speak highly enough of the care and friendliness shown to the feral cats i took for treatment.I have over the years had treatment for my many dogs and cats at other veterinary practices but never have i encountered such kindness for a feral moggie. Thankyou

"Wonderful people"

I have been very pleased with the level of care and professionalism from vets 1. From looking after the ponies to the Belgian hares....I think you need to have a surgery hare mascot :-) x

"Dedicated and hard working"

Vets1 look after our flock of sheep, our horse and our donkeys. They always make themselves available for advice, treat the animals with gentleness and care, work long hard hours without demur and seem to making a fine job of setting up a really good practice.

"Big thank you Vets 1"

Have been with Vets1 from day 1, even had Kat when she was with her previous practice, staff are excellent, Kat has dealt with my horses, dogs and even my chickens ! would highly recommend them nothing too much trouble. Wishing you all the luck with your new business you deserve it !

"Best Medical Care For Your Pets."

I am overwhelmed by the kindness and welcome that all at vets 1 give us, the help they provide, the excellent medical care, the understanding off each individuals needs, the advice they share and even the dietry food they supply which by the way is excellent and all my dogs have totally thrived and they love it. I can, do and have recommended this vets practice as I believe its second to none and financially it is extremely good value.

"Fantastic service"

Have been a client of Vets 1 since day one and have nothing but praise for the whole team. They are all warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Kat has provided first class veterinary care to all of our menagerie and has seen us through a difficult time when we lost our beloved Pig, 'Peppa'. The hardest decision you ever have to make but I felt comforted in the knowledge Kat had done everything possible to save her, and she was so patient and understanding when the 'end' finally came. I have no hesitations in recommending Vets 1 and do so regularly!


Vets 1 provide the best service I have ever received for any vets, having horses and dogs these always a drama around the corner, and vets 1 are always at the end of the phone with good sound advice - wouldn't use anyone else

"Thank you vet 1"
