Vets4Pets Chesterfield

St Johns Rd, Littlemoor, Chesterfield S41 8QN, UK – 01246 269666

Brilliant vets and very professional and helpful staff/veterinarians. Our dog reacted very well to the vet clipping his nails and also administering his booster shots. Feels very clean and very moderate space in the waiting room which helps to keep your dog calm in one place.

The actual vets are great and care about the animals, however receptionists and the manager will disregard what the vets advise completely. My cat needed medication that was prescribed by the vet. Prior to even booking the appointment I explained to receptionist over the phone that I didn't get paid until Friday and she said it was fine as they would not refuse treatment if needed. So we went to the vets, she prescribed antibiotics and painkillers, which were taken back by reception upon leaving, even though we had previously agreed that I would phone on Friday to pay any outstanding amount for meds. Obviously don't care about animals wellbeing. My cat has a fever. Hopefully her internal organs will be fine til Friday....

A very good vets that really do care for your pet. The costs are reasonably cheap compare to other vets. The staff are very friendly and will give you all the details and information you need about your pet. You can either book in by appointment or queue up during drop in times. You might find yourself waiting for a while if you go during drop in times but that is to be expected with the low costs and great staff.

This is a really good vet. Bruce is excellent. I brought my cats here for years and they make having a pet very affordable. My only complaint was that Nikki on reception was sometimes a little rude but I'm assuming it was a bad day or two. I now live too far away to come at this moment but if I move within the area I will definitely return.

Can only compliment Companion Care on their service and compassion. After having to have my small pet put to sleep, they thoughtfully sent out a condolence card and some forget me not seeds for me to scatter as a keepsake. Was a really nice touch. Will recommend to friends. Thank you.

Visited vets a few times with my cats and dog and each time the service has been excellent I would highly recommend this vets to family and friends the staff are also very friendly

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
