Notes from your vets
Patients' Stories & Photos 
One of the wonderful things about working with animals is the letters (and photos!) we receive from owners whose pets have been patients here.
Occasionally the animals themselves write... such as this letter from Bovril the cat, which really made us laugh.  Bovril's literary agent has kindly given us permission to publish it.
You can read some of the stories from recent patients using the links below.
If your pet has been in making friends with the nurses, causing havoc, or just quietly getting better, we'd love to hear from you.  Send us an email here.
