A huge thank you to Emma and her team at Fetch-a-Pet for helping us navigate the international requirements to get a new puppy that we had chosen from a breeder in England to us in Bermuda. They worked to ensure the least stress to our little guy during the process, including picking him up from the breeder the morning of the flight, and emailing me to update me with where he was and what his progress was! Emma helped answer every query I had quickly, professionally and she made sure all the required paperwork was finished when it needed to be! Our puppy is now home with us and you'd never know he spent his day yesterday in transit! I know that has a lot to do with how he was treated during his transfer and we can't thank them enough for loving our little guy while we couldn't be there! Highly recommend their services!

Fetchapet provided excellent service. The staff are very friendly and we had total trust and confidence in their expertise which resulted in a trouble free export.

Just pick my two kitties up from Cindy having booked last minute as my usual Cattery was full. My two were so relaxed on drop off that I switched all of my future bookings to Hollytree - I’m so glad I did as my two looked happy on pick up top too. I’ve not seen them this content at a Cattery for a long time. Thank you Cindy, I won’t be taking my two anywhere else. 👍🏻

Best cattery we have ever used!! It's lovely to know when we go away again that our cats are with people with a genuine love for cats!! Our cats have never been so relaxed to be somewhere other than home, great service and could never go to any other cattery now! Thanks so much Cindy and Andy.. see you soon.

Vets

London Road Vets

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

The care is good. However, one of my dogs is on medication for the rest of her life. Therefore I need repeat prescriptions in good time, not when I am on my last tablets. That is very difficult to obtain from them as I was told yesterday that I had to wait till the end of the months. So, in order to order my medication in good time online, I have to find another vet who issues prescriptions without being difficult. Because of this issue I cannot recommend them.

Excellent practice, staff are very friendly and professional. The surgery is very well equipped.There is a small parking area at the rear.

Colne Valley Veterinary Practice

Maudlyn Rd, Colchester CO1 2GU, UK – 01206 794695

A great veterinary place to go to you'll find that the staff are very friendly and helpful and the vets and nurses take great care of the animals they are seeing or needing to operate on they are the worth 5*. My parents took the dogs we had growing up to the same vets when they only had a small practice elsewhere near where they are now and we've gone with them from the old place to the huger practice they have as the amount of staff and patients grew bigger and bigger and continue to grow, my family has stuck with the same vet all these years so John has seen all the dogs we've had throughout the 42 years we've had dogs. I have been having rescue dogs of my own for 18 years now as I am living alone and a few of mine saw John but as he's overflowing with patients I had whichever one was free til January and my Rosie who is weary of men she doesn't know as she's rescue and her brother passed away last year we found that she likes Ben so now I take her to see him. But you'll be pleased with whichever one you see they all do a great job at this vets.

A veterinary centre that cares. Its clear when the vets examine your animals that you're not just a customer number, but someone who is concerned about a member of their family. All the staff are friendly. caring and importantly, give you time. It doesn't matter if you need to ask one more question to be reassured, or ask that silly question you should know. The staff are knowledgeable about a wide range of animals - not just the usual cats, dogs and rabbits. Appointment reminders are sent via text, and annual reminders for boosters and vaccinations are also sent out. The centre is easy to get to with an ample car park.
