Can any one recommend a very good vet in Milton Keynes? The vet I use I have had no problem with, but I was just wondering if any one else was happy with their vet.
Cheers

I can recommend Cristabel who is the main vet at Twickenham Veterinary Surgery, Hampton Road, Twickenham. They care for all the piggies who come in to the care of ARC.

James Brooks: Active Vetcare Tilehurst, CCT trained and an excellent surgeon, CCT refer people to him so they don't have to drive to Cambridge
Jenny Towers: as above, loves guineas and like James can do teeth and x-rays without anaesthetic. People travel long distances to see these two.

Question.

I just found a vet very near to where we live (10 to 15 minutes with the car) who says on his website:

Small animal operations occur on Friday morning for routine surgery,
and we are lucky to have a good relationship with Battleflats clinic -
if we feel a referral is more appropriate.
now in your list it recommends this Clinic - who on here has got experiences with them? I really want to find a new vet before it is necessary, dont want to end up in a situation similar to the recent disaster :(
It sounds good to me anyway, that those vets (http://www.stationhousevets.com) would refer you to someone else, instead of just not telling you they dont have a clue so that they dont look incompetent...

How good is that Clinic, and how are their prices?

I'm not sure about pigs, but if you're any where near Wickersley then there is Springfield Veternary Centre, but I've never been there for pigs, but I do know they see them. Sorry I'm not much help. Their details are:

My two have just been neutered at Alfreton Park Animal Hospital. They have more than one registered rodentologists. The care mine received - and Scruffy when she had a bad cold - was excellent. They did full health checks before they had their ops and they picked up on Jake's skin condition flaring up again. With the two ops, antibiotics, rehydrating drink and liquid diet for Jake my bill was £110 which I was quite happy with. The vet nurses know their stuff too.

I used to take mine to:

Sherwood Veterinary Group
297 Staines Rd Wst,
Ashford,
Middlesex
TW15 1RS
Tel: 01932 779979


There was a really great vet there called Max, i forget his last name and will ask other half later on. He was sooooo good with my bunny when we used to take him. It's a rench changing vets as he was great and i knew he was. We've now moved a good 1/2 drive away so have been forced to find a new vet. The new ones seem ok, but i still miss my old one. Sherwood seems to be more expensive then my current one, but i've only got the two to compare so cant really say much else on that.
