The environment was calm and well appointed, and the staff were so lovely. We really felt they took care of our cat, and were kind and patient with us. Taking your pet to the Vets can make you feel very vulnerable, but all the staff treated us with the utmost empathy and care, and took pains to communicate how they were caring for Scout before, during and after her operation.

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!

Just started using this practice as it's lovely and close to us. We have a new pup so it was the perfect time to try them out. Couldn't ask for friendlier or more welcoming people. I'm sure our little dog will be very well cared for here.

Beacon View is unlike any veterinary practice I have ever been to. Whenever I have taken my dog there the staff welcome us as we walk in and take interest in my dog which is so helpful. The waiting room is very comfortable and relaxing. The vets explain everything in language I can understand and are so kind. My dog recently had a very serious condition necessitating an operation which was dealt with by the staff at the surgery with kindness and professionalism. I would recommend them to anyone who loves their pet and wants the best care for them.

Jeffrey went into Beacon View Veterinary practice today for his little boy operation his operation was slightly different as he had a retained right testicle in the abdomen. Lead Vet Claire Smith and the rest of the team have been outstanding providing the best care for my darling boy. During the COVID pandemic they have worked really hard through these unusual and challenging times, I also visit monthly for Jeffrey’s Cytopoint as he has a lot of allergies. I cannot recommend Claire and her team more.

Fabulous place. Friendly and welcoming.. clean and modern with some very well thought out ideas to make the trip better for both owner and pets. You can see Claire loves the animals - your animals will be relaxed and happy in her company and I wouldn’t hesitate to take my animals here again.

Fantastic service from this practice, by far the best vets in the area.
