  • Amazing service from both the office and Tim coming out at the last minute on a very busy day and everyone is a pleasure to deal with. Having heard numerous good things from others I wasn't disappointed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thank you so much Tim and Laura your help was very much appreciated.

  • Waterlane Equine Vets are fantastic. The vets are extremely knowledgeable but it goes beyond that. They are kind, empathic and understand just what the horses mean to us. You are never treated like a number. The service is professional and dedicated. This applies to all involved at Waterlane. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for top class equine veterinary services.

    My horse Spirit came down with Laminitis and the vets here have given an outstanding service. Tim came out twice as an on call vet at the weekend, and spent as long as it took to get Spirit comfortable, and then Holly came several times, nothing was too much trouble, she even helped me with poultice dressings when I didn have any, and was at the end of her mobile phone, if I was ever worried about anything. Laura in the office even helped give advice about how to fill in my insurance claim. All in all, they were all brilliant.
