In the event of injury or sickness we will attempt to contact you first to discuss the situation and our recommendations before veterinary treatment is requested. ALL Medical expenses are the responsibility of the owner.
Sometimes I need to travel at short notice can you help?
Certainly once you are one of our valued customers, even a last minute booking is not a problem for us.
However over Christmas, New Year & Easter this can be tricky as we're usually fully booked, but we will try our best to accommodate your request.
How come you don't charge for key collection or a meet 'n' greet?
Unlike many other places I don't believe in charging a fee to meet someone or pick up a key.
