Client Testimonials

We have been clients of Mrs Darling for almost 10 years and have always received exceptional service from her and all of her team. The team are extremely caring, supportive, helpful and professional.


I am very satisfied with the thoughtful, prompt & efficient service I have already experienced here –from both the veterinary & reception points of view. I feel the surgery really cares about pets & pet owners & that it is not just about profit.


I have been coming to Mrs Darling with Harry my Burmese cat for years. Harry really trusts her & feels secure – So do I !!
