    First class vets, great with the animals and great with the owners. Receptionists are always friendly, helpful and interested. Vets get to know the animals and have infinite patience. Also do a mobile vet service for small animals which is great for bad travellers.

    I have been using Jonathon Woods vets for years, and wouldn't go anywhere else. Unfortunately our last visit was to have one of our beloved dogs put down, at very short notice. As always the compassion shown to both us and dear Bailey was second to none. A big thank you to everyone especially the dear vet who had to administer the injection by the light of mobile phones (due to power cut).
