Emergency Call

General Appointments

“Dr Mike, as we call him, is excellent in every way.  Our dogs love the days when they see him, which is absolutely wonderful, as they were all frightened of the vet previously.  He is so ‘user friendly’, knowledgeable, practical and honest whilst explaining everything in simplistic terms every step of the way.  Michael is obviously so passionate about his job and treats your beloved pet with utmost respect as though it were his own.”

A Mackenzie

“Michael has provided our whole “family” with exceptional care for many years and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him.  We are certain that by establishing his own practice, he will flourish still further and are delighted to support his new venture.”

P Clough

“I have been privileged to know Mike, as a vet, for 7 years.  I have been a pet owner since an early age and am passionate about my pets and their welfare.  As such, I  have exceptionally high expectations of the vets who care for them.  I have experienced many good vets but only one gifted vet— Mike.  He has exceeded my expectations in every way, being caring, striving to offer the best possible treatment, offering an amazing level of support when needed and fully involving me in my pet’s treatment.   Quite simply, he is the best vet I have known.”
