Welcome to Ashwood

Hi, I’m Patrick.

If you’re an animal lover, like we are, then you need a Vets where:

  • The staff make friends with your pet.
  • Your pet is cared for like one of our own.
  • You get professional, yet friendly, advice & the highest standards.
  • Where treatments are recommended in your pet’s best interests, not pushed.

We made a practice like this, because we made our practice for you.

I’d love you to take a moment to explore this site and find out why we care for animals so much and what we can offer you.

Great. Prompt and friendly service from the receptionist and I was pleasantly surprised that the vet remembered me and my doggie even though I had only been there once before. The vet explained Darcy’s problem clearly and how to take care of her issues in the next few days.

I guess Ashwood Vets gets a lot of 5 star reviews. But honestly people the staff here certainly deserve to slap themselves on the back. Because in short ‘ they are the dogs…’ When it comes to having your family friend cared for, the vets here take it in their stride drawing on a vast knowledge about those wee creatures that just pull at our heartstrings and melt the hardest of humans with a helpless look. Our cat whom we just adore hadn’t been feeling too clever. One phone call to speak to a vet then on the back of… Read more “I guess Ashwoods Vets gets”

I had rang Niall in the morning concerned about my dog Windsor and he had ring me back and said to bring him in. I was concerned about him as he was very suddenly lethargic and didn’t want to do much. When we arrived as usual Niall was nothing but great and by the time I was there unfortunately Windsor had deteriorated and I was in a panic. He dealt with me in a very friendly and calm manner and we did the necessary tests to find out he had ketoacidosis which was a disaster. You were already at closing… Read more “I had rang Niall in”

We came in today for our annual check up and vaccination boosters and we met Niall for the first time. He was amazing! Cuddie can be very shy and he was so patient with her. He listened to all our concerns and took time with Cuddie. He gave us excellent advice & good options for her health. Happy dog, happy doggy parents 🙂

We turned up with no appointment and were welcomed in to see a vet within 5 minutes. We came away with medication confident we could administer it ourselves. Staff at the desk are also very helpful especially the Scottish lady. We had a very warm welcome from the vet and receptionist.

I brought Oliver in yesterday and Niall was brilliant with him and with me. Oliver had had a serious accident and he was well taken care of. He had an operation and had to stay overnight. I was kept updated throughout his stay, so I knew exactly what was happening and how he was. When I collected him today again everything was explained to me and when I saw Oliver and despite what he had been through he was so contented and settled I knew he’d been well looked after. I can’t thank you enough for all you have done… Read more “”

Belle was in for her annual MOT and booster vaccination. She was examined and her medication discussed. I am very happy with her care as she has a serious condition. The Ashwood team are always very obliging, nothing is too much bother and repeat prescriptions are easy to organise. Highly recommend the practice.

I have received a great service today. The staff as always were very pleasant and professional. I had been provided with a thorough explanation of the procedure that my kitten has gone through and advised on the aftercare that is required to ensure the highest chances of healing. I was booked for a follow up appointment at the convenient time to check up on the progress of healing. Also after I left, I had a minor concern so called up and my concerns were completely addressed. I really enjoy visiting Ashwood Vets because everyone is always pleasant and goes over… Read more “”

It’s so good to know that Benji was being looked after by a great bunch of people. Every time I go in nothing is too much trouble.The girls at reception are brilliant and are always willing to hear my stories about him and asking how he is. Niall is so good at explaining everything which really helps for me to worry less and i know he will do a great job looking after Benji. So thank you from Benji and all his family. A big thank you to Chloe who not only kept Benji calm but also really helped me… Read more “”
