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!

Can’t recommend enough. Our cat was hit by a car and suffered some nasty fractures to his pelvis. We received daily updates via text and video call during his stay. The aftercare since he’s been home is second to none with frequent checkups and advice. Not just a business, Claire and her team are real animal lovers. Would not take our pets anywhere else now.

Wonderful service from Vet Claire and Josh today - video consultation (thanks to the current restrictions) and eye drops ready to collect straight away, all straightforward and reassuring. Thank you!

Unfortunately I have had 2 emergencies within 2 week with 2 of my pets. Claire was immediately on hand for both and did a fantastic job, I'm honesty not sure the first would have survived without her intervention!! Also carried out a spay on my young dog, very neat, efficient and healing incredibly well. I can't recommend or thank Claire and her team enough.

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!

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.
