A testimonial from a former team member………

"I highly recommend this clinic if you are looking for a job that will give you case autonomy while having support from colleagues. I was very inexperienced when I started here and had lost a lot of confidence. This was completely changed by working here for the past few years. I’ve learnt how to do many new surgeries with wonderful support from both vets and nurses. There is always someone to discuss your case with whether you need another set of eyes on an xray, discuss a medical case, look at cytology or some encouragement while scrubbed into a surgery. Reception does a great job of not overbooking vets. Our clients come from all walks of life and the vast majority are a real pleasure to work with as well."
