Excellent state of the art vets. Claire and her team provide a professional and friendly service. We have moved to the area recently and are so pleased we found Beacon View. Worth a definite 5*

Another visit to the practice today with my old cat who is always terrified of vets but lovely vet Katie is so kind and patient with him. I would recommend the practice to anyone, the reception staff are very welcoming and friendly and the veterinary team are so caring and knowledgeable.

I continue to be incredibly impressed with Claire and her team. We joined the practice back in March and both our feline friends are members of the Beacon View Vet Pet Club. Claire has a magical touch - I don't know how she does it, but both cats turn into cooperative and humble creatures, when they're with her (not always the case at home). Everyone in the practice has been kind, warm and very responsive. Whenever I have a question or a problem, Claire is there to reassure me and offers immediate check ups, so I can put my mind at ease. Lily has been through hell, having recovered in the recent months from being hit by a car last year, so she's very special to us. Only last week we had a scare after I found a strange lump on her chest. Claire made a swift decision to remove it and check it out - luckily it wasn't malignant and we all sighed with relief. Lily is behaving as if she never had the surgery and the post-op wound is healing nicely. I could praise Claire and her team all day, but to summarise - I couldn't wish for better vet care for my two cats. Thank you, Beacon View Vets!

After poor experiences at another vet we changed to Beacon and WOW! what a difference! They listened, understood our anxiety and explained all options clearly with no pressure - and so good with our dog Millie A real five star experience.

Claire helped me take care of my elderly Golden Doodle at a different practice. I really liked her manner with him and her encouragement and advice to me when I was falling apart. I was delighted to find her again at Beacon View and have seen quite a bit of her and the team in the 9 weeks I’ve had my new dog! They are all so nice and Bertie is more than happy to go in with them. He’s had 2 procedures and the staff kept me informed every step of the way. The check ups are either done by email with photos, telephone or in person. Their aftercare is excellent too. It’s good to know that the whole team work in the same way as Claire and I would definitely recommend them.

I have only just registered my dogs with this surgery as just moved to the area. I’m so impressed, I have 2 rescue dogs who are not happy about coming to the vets, they have been so patient with them, have not rushed them and I am so grateful for that. Amazing team, always willing to help, would recommend 100% to friends and family.

We are very confident that our cats health is in expert and caring hands. The practice was recommended to us by a family member because of the excellent and prompt treatment her pet received. Claire and team always seem to have time to listen and speak to us and know our, and our cats foibles. It's reassuring that we can get blood test results quickly, Our cat had to have several teeth extracted which is a tricky operation but it went exceptionally well, and the cat made a full recovery,. We have already recommended to friends. Thank you Beacon View. You're a great team

Our first visit to Vet Claire was a breeze! Our 9 week old Labrador pup was perfectly happy to go off in Claire’s cuddling arms for a check up. Clean bill of health given and I could even watch her with the IPad! Such an amazing service and we’ll be back next week!

I took my dog to see Claire this week and decided to register with Beacon View after being let down by my usual vet practice. I have always wanted a vet who genuinely cares for my beloved fur baby and I have finally found that in Claire! The service was brilliant from start to finish and my dog was very happy too! I would highly recommend this practice!

I have recently been taking my dog to see Katie, who is really fantastic. She listens really well and is really knowledgeable. It feels like she really cares about my dog, which is lovely, and that she would really strive for the best outcome.

Not all vets are created equal. Be part of a practice where your pet is treated as a member of the family, and you are considered a partner in your pet’s care.
