caring and compassionate

The Alternative Vet Practice offers a highly professional service while still retaining the personal touch with pets and their owners. Miriam is a first class vet who also draws on her wide knowledge and considerable expertise in animal behaviour to ensure a consultation that is as stress free as possible for her patients. Upon meeting Miriam it is immediately obvious that she genuinely cares deeply about all aspects of animal welfare. She is extremely patient and always takes the time to fully explain, reassure and give advice. Nothing is too much trouble and Miriam really goes the extra mile to provide the highest standard of care and attention. Her fees are very competitive.

My favourite vet practice!!!

The best vet I have met yet. Miriam made my pets feel at ease when they were unsure and didn't rush them to get their inoculations. She neutered my rabbits and my cat and made me feel reassured that they would be in excellent hands. After they had their surgery Miriam phoned to let me know when they had woken up and let me know when I could come take them home. I got a call a few days later to make sure they were getting on ok. One of my rabbits was very naughty and ate her stitches out and after a quick phone call to Miriam she told me to come straight to the surgery to get my bunny stitched back up and to make sure there was no damage done internally. A few minutes later my bunny was stitched back up and we could go home. Prices are great and l have recommended her to my friends and family. She has given me so much advice and reassurance and I feel safe leaving my pets at her practice as I know they will be loved and cared for as if they were her own.

Why I love the Alternative!

Miriam has an excellent rapport with her patients-where being a behavourist as well as a vet comes in. She takes time to settle the animal if nervous, explains why she is doing what she is doing, gives excellent follow up service, evening appts-essential if you work full time! You never feel rushed or patronised.

wonderful vet

Home visit to cut my scatty dogs nails. This is usually a very traumatic event but I was pleasantly surprised by how calm this vet made the whole experience for me and my dog.
Fantastic vet, who genuinely cares for my animals. Great advice and no ridiculous prices.
