What our clients and dog trainers say about us

Dr Cathy has an exceptional knowledge of animal behaviour and wonderful low stress handling skills. She was able to make my dog, who is fearful of strangers, feel comfortable in her presence and offered me clear, concise advice on how to manage and improve her condition. She was compassionate and easy to talk to. I thoroughly recommend her services!

Ebony C. & "Maela"

I have known Dr Cathy for a number of years and, in my opinion, she is a very professional and caring Veterinarian. She has always been wonderful and compassionate in dealing with me and my Rottweiler Rebel, ever since he was a puppy.

In my capacity as a dog trainer, I have formed a valuable professional relationship with Dr Cathy over the years. In my role, it is vitally important to have a reliable and trustworthy Vet, who I can refer my clients to for the treatment of any behavioural issue. I truly appreciate her dedication to helping pets and owners with genuine compassion and a profound understanding of animal behaviour.

Dr Cathy is a highly experienced veterinarian with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in animal behaviour.
She is dedicated, calm, and kind, and goes above and beyond to help her patients with her exceptional service. Dr Cathy genuinely cares, and makes such a difference after just one visit.
If you need a compassionate and professional behaviour vet for your furry best mate, definitely contact Dr Cathy. She is truly amazing, we are lucky to have found her!
