Amazing Service - One of a kind!! My mum bought a Lufthansa ticket which allowed my dog to sit in the cabin with her. I have spoken/email around 30 pet agencies and they all refused to help me out because they do not understand the requirements travelling via cabin. Rachel @ Fetchapet has been helpful since day one and managed to sort out all the travel documents, certifcates and other necessary documents to enter in to Singapore. I am pleased to say my dog has arrived in Singapore with my mum, with no quarantine. I highly recommend Fetchapet!

I moved to Uganda 8 months ago it didn't take long for me to start missing dogs in my life! I always planned to bring a dog from the UK but wasn't sure how to go about it. I bought a border collie puppy from a friend in the UK and started to plan to ship him to Uganda. I contacted several companies for assistance and the first one to reply was Fetchapet. Not only the first, but by far the most polite, informative and friendly. After this, the process was smooth from start to finish. Emma and Rachel were so helpful in doing everything that needed to be done, from DEFRA certificates to looking after my dog Rafi the night before the flight. They also communicated with the Vet in Uganda to ensure that all the paperwork was in order and prepared meaning Rafi was in customs for a very short time. I can not thank the Fetchapet team enough for making it so easy. Like many dog owners who move, I was worried about the impact the journey would have a dog, especially a young one, but Fetchapet gave us so much confidence and reassurance. Rafi settled very quickly in Uganda and it is now like he has been here forever. I recommend Fetchapet to anyone looking to move a pet abroad, and if needed I will certainly use them again. Thanks again for everything!

Vets

London Road Vets

47 London Rd, Colchester CO3 9AJ, UK – 01206 544918

Receptionists are incredibly friendly and you can tell they love animals. Don, our cats vet, is very calm and experienced. He gave us treatment options but was also straightforward that he cannot cure our cat. He gave us plenty of time when we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Rupi, who made it to 21 years. We will be returning with our other cat in the future.

5 Stars are not enough. If you love your pet, don't go anywhere else. I've been to many vets in London, NYC and UK and this is the best experience I have had. The reception is as far away from that snooty 'yeah, next.' attitude that disappointingly seems to be the norm. The girls are warm, welcoming and calming when us pet parents are worried and stressed. Then I grilled them all over prices and fees and they calmly explained everything and were keen to make it clear and as cost effective as possible. I'm not easy and they didn't get upset at all - quite the reverse and took so much time to talk it through. My gorgeous dachshund was treated like a baby and he usually doesn't like the vets but fine here. My Husband and I got the best feeling from this surgery that we didn't get at others in Colchester. It's not rushed, it's just caring and so, so clean and quite luxurious. We have no reservations about saying don't hesitate. You won't find anywhere better than these skilled people.
