Here are some of our testimonials

  • An incredible practice! I have had several pets with Animates and I cannot fault them, they are professional yet approachable and understanding on a personal level. They always offer a variety of approaches and options to treat the animals without any bias, but are willing to put forward which one they think is most appropriate for the individual scenario. They are incredibly accommodating and always have our animals’ best interests at heart and are equally supportive to owners. I’d never go anywhere else with my pets, I cannot thank them enough.

  • All the staff were amazing during a very difficult time where we ended up putting our twelve year old cat to sleep. Constantly kept me updated, allowed us to make an early evening visit after work and called us late on a Friday evening to tell us he was going down hill and allowed us to come out at 11pm to say our goodbyes. Truly amazing team, no matter who I was dealing with. Highly professional, friendly and exceptional customer service. Even afterwards when dealing with the urn and a follow up call to explain what might have happened. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.
