Our 6 month old French Bulldog has had mad itchy skin for a couple a months despite consulting two other big name Vet surguries. The second Vet also made a blind guess it was skin mites to treat including again with antibiotics but the scratching if anything got worse!
We were frustrated and spending a lot of time and money with no progress at all. Then we found client reviews for "John" the independent owner of Abbeywood Veterinary clinic in Denton where the approach was unrushed even late opening to explain the likely challenge to fix Ziggy's skin problem. We could ask questions anytime through John's unique service of text messages to 07769353350.
A reasonably priced screening blood teste has suggested Ziggy's scratching is mainly caused by a food allergy. We have started an expensive strict diet trial which uniquely Abbeywood "price match" the internet! Early days but everthing so far has been lot more proactive and effective than the previous two other big company Vets we had consulted.See more testimonials on Yell.com
I took my elderly dog in to see John on the recommendation of another dog walker who'd said he wouldn't take his dog anywhere else as John was both the cheapest and the best vet around. After seeing John I agree completely with that. He just gets on with it!
That surprised me as I don't think I've ever visited my previous practice without being encouraged to spend a fortune on blood tests or some other type of test whatever the problem was. I am however confident that John would only recommend any kind of test if it was absolutely necessary and not just a means of charging more!See more testimonials on Yell.com
John told me what was wrong with my cat within 10 minutes - even though I'd been going to my previous practice for months and got nowhere despite them charging me a small fortune.See more testimonials on Yell.com
My male cat needed his broke lower canine fang tooth urgently removed. After looking online to register him with a new Vet, I came across Abbeywood, Denton. The very large number of reviews (over 60) were universally excellent & convinced me despite the Uber taxi fare from central Manchester. I called late Friday evening yet was fitted in to bring my cat down straight away.
John is without a doubt the best vet I've come across. He has a genuine care for the welfare of the animals, and was able to tell me the situation with my cat straight away. Most importantly he gave me a thorough insight to the medication & I realised I needed to both leukaemia vaccinate and castrate my tomcat!
I did not feel rushed like I had felt at other clinics, which made me feel completely stress-free.
I would recommend John without a moment of hesitation. He is professional, courteous and his text access 07769-353350 for advice & follow-up recovery reports & late opening seem to be absolutely unique.See more testimonials on Yell.com
