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.

A normally stressed out Pixie (a rescue dog) is getting more and more relaxed at Ashwood to the extent that she barked in protest when Niall left the consulting room for a moment! As I’m learning to expect I left feeling more knowledgeable and confident about what to do in her best interests. We won’t be moving from Ashwood now we’ve found it!

Excelled in every way. My pup was due to have a minor op, but right from the start they took really good care of her. They even called when she had come round from the sedation which put my mind at rest. When I picked her up, her op and after-care was carefully explained which is good when you are a bit emotional seeing your beloved pet after an op. Thanks to all staff.

Every appointment that we have at Ashwood vets is always professional, warm and has Ben’s best interests at heart. Although Ben gets hyper and anxious when he realises he is at the vets, he calmed down and was much more relaxed by the time we were going home. I always feel happy asking questions and am happy with every visit. Thank you. Ben and Alexis.

We had to make the heart breaking decision to put Oscar to sleep at 16, Ashwood practice could not have been more helpful, and arranged for us to bring him in when it was quiet and he would not get stressed in a busy practice. Niall was brilliant with us and Oscar calming him with a blanket and offering him little treats. Niall explained what would happen at each stage of the process and left us alone with him, no pressure was put on us to proceed until we were ready to let him go, Niall sedated him and he… Read more “We had to make the”

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 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”

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 “”
