“I would like to say a huge thank you for the care and compassion shown to our family dog on Sunday night, I have never in all my year’s of being a dog owner come across a more wonderful vet service. The young receptionist was so polite and friendly to my 2 daughter’s and myself, and the Vet who attended to our dog was amazing such a kind natured man, the lady Vet was also very kind the price was very reasonable compared to all the other vet’s I called before finding this vet. I highly recommend this Vet and will be passing on the detail’s of the Vet to all my family and friend’s who have animal’s, once again thank you for taking care of our family dog,
Regard’s Tracey and family.”

“It’s an odd thing, but I am so grateful to have switched vets to SCV, just as my small one started needing end of life care. We couldn’t have been in better hands and they somehow managed to make the whole thing suck that much less by having the most empathetic, genuinely caring, kind and communicative approach to compliment their professional, top notch veterinary medical care. We visited the St Peters clinic several times this last week, so we met a lot of the team from reception, nursing and the doctors. Every single one of them was incredible and treated us with so much kindness and respect. Although there wasn’t much to be done and we said goodbye to my little one, I was certain that she was receiving the best care that could be provided. Everything was peaceful, highly ethical and gentle and when we left the clinic after saying goodbye, I was devastated, but so calm and at peace knowing everything went as best as it could have possibly gone. Thank you SCV St Peters, especially Dr. Julian and the amazing Dr. Ben.”
