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 as always!
Great, as usual. Wasn’t a very nice job that Isabella needed doing, but all went well. Thank 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!
Excellent. Kind attentive staff. Very reassuring.
Fluffy Fauntleroy received excellent, prompt treatment today. Niall explained very concisely all the details of Fluff’s test results. A very happy Mummy and Baby Boy!
Amazing as usual! So easy to get an appointment and Sophie was so good with Patch and he isn’t a bit bothered about getting his injection!
Great staff and very unstressful vaccination visit for Sooty! Thanks again!
Excellent service. Couldn’t ask for anything more very informative.
Excellent very happy with Sparky’s treatment.
We brought our mini dachshund pup for his first visit today. Niall and the rest of the staff made the visit a very positive and enjoyable experience. Freddy was treated like royalty.
Such great people. Thank you all so much.
Prompt and very friendly veterinary service. Professional and gentle approach.
You were very helpful and efficient and put our minds at rest. All at short notice.
Charlie was in for some dental work today and sophie was just absolutely amazing!! She handled my concerns about Charlie being shy really well and it so happens that Charlie took a shine to her!! First ever!! So I’m a happy furr-mummy and Charlie has the American smile 😀 Thank you so much! Top bunch of people and top vets!
Excellent, explained the issue and all options. Interested in Pet Owner’s views re the treatment plan.
Very successful visit. Alfie is nervous but Niall was able to examine his teeth which was most impressive. He also gave my rabbit a health check and his vaccination without causing him any distress. Many thanks, Rosemary Dalzell
As usual you cared for our pet so well. The staff are so kind & professional. Thanks for looking after Max so well.
As always the care & professionalism of all the staff was excellent. Thanks. Woof from Rory & Max 🐾🐾🐾🐾
Kelly and Ellen both cool, calm, friendly and professional as ever in spite of the heat. Thought the additional water bowls and cool mats in the reception were a great idea too.
Excellent! 5 star service as always.
Fantastic service as always. Took the time to explain everything and answered all my queries.
5 star treatment for Daisy. The vet was informative and friendly to both dog and human. Thank you!!
Fantastic as always! And really, I wouldn’t say that if it wasn’t true!!!
Mylo had the best of care today while having his little operation. Staff were very informative and very helpful. Highly recommend Ashwood vets.
My dog is my life, You made my life better
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.
All went well, good examination and good treatment & advice.
As always Sophie was wonderful, always takes the time to give the best advice and the best options for my pet’s well being, tells you how it is. Super you need more staff like her. PS. Only thing your prices are creeping up don’t forget your loyal customers sometimes your success can be your downfall.
Great friendly staff, and loving the new cat section fab idea.
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.
Clara had an accident on the way to the surgery (nerves) . The vet who attended to us (sorry I didn’t catch her name) quickly took Clara”s pet carrier, cleaned it and then attended to us immediately. All staff very welcoming and helpful.
Great as always 😄
Excellent. Everyone has been so kind to my Henri. It has been very distressing for both him and myself and everyone has just been lovely. Especially Kelly. She has handed me tissues on a few occasions now. Thanks, Helen
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”
Excellent vets practice. All staff very friendly. Would highly recommend to friends.
Freddie loved his first visit to Ashwood vets and Sophie. I found Sophie really helpful and informative on handling puppy stage. The best advice being to reduce food to 3 feeds a day – what a difference!!! Freddie has slept right through the night since. Thank you, Adele.
Excellent. Got an appointment straight away and seen almost as soon as we arrived. 3 dogs all sorted in no time.
Brought my cat Oreo in as he had been sick and off his food and no interest in drinking either. The medicine has really helped him as he has already eaten and his bowels have moved too! Glad I brought him in today! Thanks.
Brilliantly, explained everything so that I understood what is happening and what the plan is to help Spence’s eye.
We were treated very well. Staff were pleasant and friendly. When I got the bill was shocked was expensive.
Done very well . Was very pleased with Tilly’s care & treatment today thank you very much for looking after Tilly.
Sophie is fantastic, as always. Holly is very nervous about her annual injections and Sophie is so good with her and very reassuring. The service from reception and from Sophie was excellent.
We love Sophie. Thank you for being amazing. Woofin wonderful.
So so well. Getting an appointment was easy and quick, with the girl at the end of the phone being really helpful and friendly. The appointment itself was excellent. Niall really took the time to explain everything, was very informative and clearly cares a lot about what he does. My pup loved him. Thanks so much!
Brilliant as always. Professional, friendly and great advice. Thanks so much.
Always a pleasure. Really helpful, explained everything. Didn’t rush us. Just brilliant. Thank you so much for looking after us and getting Ninja back to top form.
We are very pleased with the service we receive from all the staff at Ashwood.
As always the advice and support received is simply superb.
As alway the staff are excellent and very helpful. Oscar has no fear going to visit and just loves the fuss they make of him.
There was an excellent quality of care from Niall. He is always excellent with the two dogs and very helpful. The nurses were also very engaging and friendly when we were waiting. Always a positive experience!
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.
Sophie is so much more than just a vet.
As always warm and welcoming and professional.
5 stars as usual!! Lucy is a lot brighter after her visit and meds. Thank you!
Great! Fast and efficient.
Superb! Excellent communication from staff.
I am always put at ease when I have Sydney in. Everything is always explained in depth and any questions I ask are always answered. The care given to Sydney is 100% always from the vets to the nurses and the receptionist.
Vet really helpful. Looked after Christian very well and gave us great advice. The receptionist was very nice and helpful too. Thank you all so much.
Had good help with Christian, we struggle with vet fees as we are on benefits but we have to do our best for him and find yourself to be sympathetic to our situation so many thanks.
Excellent, as always!
Fantastic service as always. Everyone so friendly and welcoming.
great , very helpful and very friendly as always
Excellent, really great service & even had fresh water for dogs to drink, thoroughly recommend
OUTSTANDING!!!!!! We lovvvvvvvvvve Sophie! Woofin wonderful. 🐕🐕🐕
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”
Excellent! Very friendly, very happy with care.
Found the vets and staff very friendly and professional with a very caring attitude.
First time using Ashwood and it was a fantastic experience. Niall the vet was brilliant with Shadow and the help and advice was brilliant that he gave. Got recommended by a friend and glad we took her advice to go to yourselves. Thank you!
Fantastic!!! Patrick and the staff are always lovely and I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else!!!
Fantastic as usual, always helpful, and you always get seen at short notice by a vet.
Brilliant as always ! Very helpful staff and very knowledgeable, even George enjoyed it !! Thank you 😊
Roxi got a first class service as always at Ashwood.
Niall was excellent, so passionate and sincere.
Brilliant as always. Very informative before and after Riley’s sedation for a groom.
Vets and Staff lovely couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Genuine and caring.
Brilliant, Sophie explained everything very well, is very caring and Maisy is doing great now. We did think it was the end, as Maisy had gone down hill so quickly. Sophie is an asset to the team at Ashwood. Regards Dawn
We couldn’t be happier with the service we recieved today. we were put at ease by phone calls throughout the day updating us on how Charlie was doing and everything was explained In great detail. Charlie is recovering well. Many thanks.
Exceptional, as always!!!!! Thank you ❤
Sandy loved her check up this evening, was put at ease 100%. Thank you very much
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”
Fantastic as always & Hollie is looking cool in her new bandana xx
Top notch service!
Looked after my wee Hollie amazing as usual best vets ever
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.
Everyone at Ashwood is so friendly and helpful. They are always so great with our dog who has marked anxiety when he has to visit the vets, really taking the time and doing all that they can to make his experience less stressful.
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 “”
Thank you so much for acting immediately and referring Dan to a specialist about his spine. Extremely happy on how you dealt with such an urgent case. Forever grateful.
Best vets around, saved my dog’s life. Excellent, caring and friendly service.
Wonderful as always! Buster actually enjoys his trips to Ashwood. The staff are all so great and helpful and just make what is a stressful circumstance into something more like popping in to see some friends and bringing the dog with you!
No waiting, attentive staff, first class service all round, always impressed with this veterinary practice.
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 “”
