I'm sorry to those who do not find my review useful. The key points which I hoped would be of help were to check the policies of your vet, particularly with a hamster, as when they have surpassed their life expectancy do you really want them to go through a full examination only to be told they cannot do anything anyway? The other aspect is to consider the cost, in the past I have paid £17 to euthanise a hamster, £50 was paid to Companion Care. It is about being fair, not cheap, I would gladly have paid it if there had been any hope for my hamster, but Companion Care's policy is to charge you regardless of the obvious outcome. The other consideration is to look on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and make sure they are listed as catering for small animals, this is a specialist field that requires extra training, so it is worth checking. I hope this clarifies my intent, sorry for not making it clearer. by animalwel

Disadvantages: No instructions with shirt. Fiddly to get on and off your pet. Quite expensive.

Vet care can be expensive however I feel that it is the response of the vet and staff that make the difference. My vet has always been up front and honest with me about my dog (Milo) care and the cost. If by chance an x ray is needed they will talk to me before hand and explain why one is needed. I have also been shown the x rays, blood work results, so I understand the need for tests which is important. by angiepaddock
okay more info, this vet practice offer all services they advertise on there website. I did look around at other vets to get a cost idea and found that ccvets at chippenham had the best prices and did offer as far as i could see better services, in house testing, xray facilities, and much more. They are also opened 7 days a week which brilliant because my lab manages to get ill on the weekends as well as the week days. Never had a problem at all in getting to see a vet, The prices as far as i have found are cheaper than most other vet practices and they do offer a care package for the pets, again this is advertised on there website. by angiepaddock

Yes I reported the vet. But because he is the head vet ther , no action was taken against him. Like I said my cat was not the first pet to die under his care. Look up daily mail dog dies after castration. The very same vet rahul shah. Its so sad so many pet deaths and still no action against him by kiitikat04

We've been with them for years though, and never left any bill unpaid. On the one occasion when I forgot my wallet, I phoned them immediately when I got home and paid over the phone. I'm sorry, but it was the fact that my partner was chased down for the payment after his little cat had died. They could easily have phoned us, they have all our details. I've changed vets now. I have asked the vets for a point by point breakdown of what we were charged for, as I do think that the amount is too high considering she was dead on arrival and they literally confirmed this and that was all. They performed no service and administered no drugs/treatment. So in truth, I am annoyed at the charge. Hubby paid the money when he was chased down, so we're not trying to "get out" of paying, though I would like to know just precisely what we were charged for!!! Thanks for all of your sympathies though, Jasmyn was such a little treasure and there is a hole in our happy home since we lost her. xxx by Foreverdark87
