Lovely vet, plenty of parking, large waiting room so you can keep your distance from other pets and give your pet some space. Quick but thorough assessment of the dog, allowed her to be on the floor and let her warm up in her own time to the vet. Friendly staff and reasonable cost (we got a discount as we have two dogs!) Will now be my registered veterinarian

I had my puppy with Shenick Veterinary Centre last week. All of the staff were so good and so kind to her as she was very sick. The vet brought her back twice for checkups to make sure she was doing ok. I am more than happy with the service I received and I would highly recommend Shenick for all your veterinary needs.

All of the staff are so helpful and friendly in both clinics, I cant believe how much they go out of their way for you and the animals, cant fault them!

The staff were brilliant…really nice and informative. The prices for the procedures are the best around too and the convenience of having somewhere so close by is brilliant not just for us, the owners, but especially for the animals who are not used to being boxed up into carriers, transported in cars!! I would highly recommend Shenick Vet Centre.
