After moving home recently, I found myself in a heartbreaking situation regarding my pets (3 Cats, 1 Dog). In my new home. We would be only allowed to keep 1 Dog & 1 Cat. After consulting my husband and going through an horrendous sort of process of elimination (better word/s escape me). With a heavy heart, we decided that my eldest cat (aged 17 or 18) would have to be put to sleep. She was the oldest and in general is not in great health and hasn't been for a couple years on and off. But she had been with me for so long she really was one of the family (it was breaking my heart). And we still had another heart wrenching decision to make. We decided that my youngest cat (aged 3 or 4 and also in good health) would also have to be put to sleep. Now if you're reading this thinking, why would you put a young healthy cat down? Because I'd hate to take her to a rescue centre and have some animal abuser take her (I couldn't live with that). Anyway i phoned 2 or 3 other vets and explained the situation and they wouldn't have a healthy young cat put down (fair enough). Then i phoned Abbey Veterinary Centre and they heard my side of things and agreed to make me an appointment. When i arrived (an emotional wreck) they talked to me and asked if i thought putting her to sleep was the right thing to do? But also said to me that they understood my concerns over her going to someone who would mistreat her. (I really was in two minds at this point and my head was all over the place). Then a young female vet told me that she had been informed of my situation and concerns and she (the vet) would like to take her home and keep in regular touch(so i would know, how she was doing), with my blessing. I felt so overwhelmed and relieved. She seemed like a lovely young lady and i had a good feeling about my cat going to live with her (she is a vet, afterall!). So thank you so, so much to not just the vet, but everyone who dealt with me at Abbeys. You really are a first class outfit and you went well above and beyond your duty of care (If i could give you 10.... well i'd give you 20 stars).

Excellent Vet. Has surgeries in surrounding areas. Very satisfied.

Fast and friendly service, made us feel at ease the whole time as well as dealing deftly and swiftly with our pet. Would definitely recommend.

Very good service, though they tend towards the pricey side of the scale. Front of house staff are always welcoming and happy to see you.

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
