My very old lady cat of 23 years had to be PTS today after a rapid deterioation in health in the last two days. Was completely heart broken and dreaded the day I I had to make this decision.

You let me beg on the end of the phone to give my girl a much needed C-section but you wouldn't! You killed 3 of her puppies due to your neglect. Later you wasted £2500 insurance (Which you conveniently had displayed on your screen) on an abscess- You unnecessarily put my puppy under anesetic repeatedly to top up your earnings. You should be ashamed of yourself!!! The straw that broke the camels back is when you give out of date medication AND gave my puppy thr incorrect vaccination! After a lengthy phone call to make sure you had the correct vaccine for her. You should be closed down!! Read Less

I love these people! When my sweet-but-misguided husband decided to put our axolotl in a tank with corydoras, and she got one stuck in her mouth, we were distraught as to what to do. The cory's barbs were sticking too far through Axel's mouth for us to get it out without serious damage. I phoned Cestria, who had us come pretty much straight away. Everyone there fawned over Axel and showed concern for her predicament. Alan, their 'exotic pet' vet had just come in from dealing with a prolapse calf birth. He cleaned up quickly and attended to Axel with both professionalism and loving care. Basically, Cestria saved our pet; she'd have died if not for their efforts... and, they asked that we phone and let them know how she's doing, which I thought was wonderful. It's been a long time since I've been to a vet clinic that felt so full of heart. Everyone there is simply amazing. Read Less

I found a deer in the middle of the road which had been hit by a car. The police came and eventually after about and hour the vet from Cestria. The deer was breathing well and had a strong pulse and had a broken leg. The vet said, "There's only one thing to be done here" and made the action of slitting her throat while she went to the car for a gun. She shot the deer between it's antlers and then said, "Anyone for venison? They're usually fighting over it!" Utterly disgusted!! If this had been a dog, it would have been treat and saved but because this animal was percieved as a meat animal it was slaughtered without a second thought! I am so glad I don't take my pets to Cestria. Read Less

They didn't call the dog warden who was aware the dog was missing, a requirement by law, they didn't search for the owner, they just put it to sleep because of an existing heart condition that they were treating with regular medication!
