How much

So we have been using these vets for over 10 years now and always thought that vets were expensive as a norm . How wrong was I my dog was unwell at my parents house and they took her to there vets after spending so much time with the dog and treating her they asked if she could come back just so they could keep a eye also she ended up having her yearly booster done . The bill was as cheap as chips . So I did wonder bt the care she got was better then we get on the NHS . So today I needed some flea treatment and at my parents vets they paid £26 for 6 months and I got the same flea treatment at swanscombe vets £60 . That is true I was also tried to sell me a worming tablet that I know the flea treatment already covers accept ticks that a worming tablet does not cover ticks . So why are they charging everybody so much money . I would just check on line at how much you can get the stuff for also I have heard them trying to sell there food as the only stuff that your dog can have .
So if your happy giving your money away stick with them if not look somewhere else and save over half .

Perfect for our pooch!

We have brought our mini Schnauzer, L, here since he was a puppy (now 2) after researching the best vets to register him with. It's not the closest vet to us but we wouldn't take him anywhere else. We have always been super impressed with the experience we have with the vets, from the ease of booking appointments, availability of appointments to the care given to our boy, and most importantly, the advice and treatment. We have also never ever felt as though we have not had good value for money. Having the option of taking him to Swanscombe or meopham is also really helpful. Fortunately our pooch has thus far has been blessed with good health save for a small number of minor niggles along the way (eating a hair clip being one) so we haven't had the need to make use of all facilities available (same day CT scan and hydrotherapy pool) but it is great that they seem to be so "on the ball" with pushing to have the best services available for their patients. I could go on but essentially, we wouldn't dream of taking him anywhere else- even when not feeling himself he always wags his tail going into the vets and also coming out and that's all the endorsement we need. If he's happy, we're happy. Everyone we encounter makes a genuine effort to make your animal feel comfortable which they achieve without doubt. If L were rating this practice, he would give 5/5 bones for sure. Thanks to all staff and if you're thinking of registering your dog/cat/any other animal here, don't hesitate!!!
