Cat being examined
Preparing for a cat spay
We would just like to mention how pleased we are that we were recommended Dacre House for our GSD who can get aggressive with strangers. After being told by our previous Vet not to bring our GSD in unless its an emergency. It was a breath of fresh air to meet Jane. She is calm and confident...and just gets on with the job in hand...
Thank you so very much for all the expert treatment, wonderful care and kindness Bobby received during his recent illness. Without your knowledge and skills I have no doubt he would not be with us now. Thank you, also, for making me feel so welcome during my visits while he needed to stay with you. You are a truly wonderful team.
Thank you so much for all of your support over the past couple of years. It was nice to see how much you all cared for our 'little monster' Kasper and did everything you could for him. He was certainly a character and loved coming for his visits with you… You are all amazing, caring people and we are so grateful for all that you did.
...thank you to you all for the wonderful care that you have shown to Raki during his last year or so...Particularly Becky. Also a very big thank you to Bradley for his kindness when we finally had to put Raki to sleep...You guys all do an amazing job...when a situation arises like this I can’t imagine how hard it must be for you all as well.
...just to thank you ALL for the care you gave our dog when she was sick. You were fantastic and I will come back again and recommend you to all my friends, as you were recommended to me. Dotty is doing good at the moment, and if that changes you will be the first to hear about it. Thank you again.
