As you can imagine, I have a lot of contact with vets around the country and locally. And VERY rarely have I received the time, lovely approach and calm attitude given by you and your team so thank you again.

I would like to say a huge Thank you to Friars Moor Vets in Sturminster Newton. They have been absolutely fantastic to us here at Hedgehog Rescue of Hazelbury Bryan, always on the end of the phone for advice and care and always reviewing the hedgehog patients when needed. Covid 19 has been very difficult for everyone so I am very grateful for all the time they have given to us here. I have learnt so much from their advice and they need a huge pat on the back. Thank you from all the hedgehogs but especially from me.

I am blessed to have Friar’s Moor Vets on my doorstep, not that it would matter, I would definitely travel!! I have recommended Friars Moor Vets to many of my hen friends, finding a chicken friendly vet is difficult and very important to people like me who rehome ex-commercial hens and they have all been delighted with the veterinary care they have received.

As a whole, I can’t praise the practice enough, the reception staff are always so helpful and friendly as are the nurses. If you have yet to choose a vet to entrust your beloved pets, or farm animals to – look no further!!

I have been with Friars Moor Vets for 20 years and they have always provided me with a fantastic service. Their service is all about the welfare for the animal and the owner. One of my dog’s recently sustained a horrific leg injury and the care, compassion and honesty from Gilla Primrose was outstanding. She was so informative and the before and aftercare has been second to none.

Friars Moor regularly visits our farm on routine procedures for both the sheep and beef herd. They are always very thorough and knowledgeable and aware of the whole farm objectives and strategy. The health plan, reviewed regularly with the vets, is a great tool to be proactive in respect of the farms animal health.

We all love our pets and, for 18 years, Friars Moor Veterinary Practice in Sturminster Newton has been giving me the confidence that I was doing the very best I could for mine.  The staff have always been friendly and approachable and whether the pets were in sickness or in health, I have always felt that I was receiving the best advice and they were getting the very best care available. Finally, when that time comes, that we all dread,  when we have to say goodbye to our animal companions, I would like to pay tribute to the staff for the caring, professional way they provide this service .

Thank  you

I wanted to say a huge thank you to Eleanor and Claire (the Friars Moor Vets) who came on the 4th August to calve one of our cows. They were so wonderful, so professional and above all they were very careful and gentle with our cow. I have no doubt that their expert knowledge and gentle care meant that our cow survived. I would have thought the cow would have been down for a few days but was up and walking back to the herd within half an hour.

I believe a good Vets is hard to find but “Friars Moor” really is the whole package.

We have been with them for several years and have a selection of pets, but one of our dogs is a regular visitor due to having several complicated illnesses, all of which the Friars Moor team have controlled and given him a good quality of life. The level of support, knowledge and understanding goes above and beyond, from all the Vets, nurses, receptionists and their insurance clerk.

We have laughed and cried together over the years, and their professionalism and kindness, not only towards the animal but us as well, is second to none. Thank you Friars Moor.

The team at Friars Moor have looked after our pets for many years. The quality of veterinary care is always second to none. However, it has been during the more difficult visits to the surgery that the true extent of the team’s compassion and knowledge has really shone through. Last year, one of our cats, Bluebell, sustained a broken femur, amongst other injuries after being involved in a road traffic accident. The expertise and dedication of the team was just incredible and we are enormously thankful that they managed to save Bluebell’s life (and her leg!).

When we have been forced to say goodbye to our four-legged family members at the end of their lives, the team have treated both us, and our pets with enormous compassion. We can’t thank them enough for helping us and our beloved pets through that painful journey so sensitively. Each time we walk through the surgery door at Friars Moor, we know that our pets are in the very best hands, and we feel that our pets deserve nothing less.

Having been a client of Friars Moor Vets since 1998, I have witnessed many changes over the years. Considerable recent expansion has only enhanced the service provided whilst still remaining personable, friendly and efficient.

As a breeder of both show and working Sussex Spaniels (a Kennel Club recognised Vulnerable Native Breed) their highly skilled and professional approach is invaluable to me and my dogs along with a sympathetic ear when things are not going to plan! Personable, friendly and efficient!
