London Road Vets

Receptionists are incredibly friendly and you can tell they love animals. Don, our cats vet, is very calm and experienced. He gave us treatment options but was also straightforward that he cannot cure our cat. He gave us plenty of time when we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Rupi, who made it to 21 years. We will be returning with our other cat in the future.

Fantastic vets. Really friendly and great at looking after your pet
