Any cat lover will understand how precious our cats are to us, and it’s heart-breaking when old age or illness means we have to be parted from them. Anita is the most caring kind of cat person and has cried with us when we’ve had to say goodbye to our beloved pets. She has treated them (and us) with great dignity and empathy and made sad partings more bearable. Most recently, one of our cats – the beautiful Titch in the picture( s) – was knocked down by a car and Anita was there help us through the trauma, share in our sadness and loss and arrange a dignified cremation for him. When it comes to the living, Anita is an outstanding vet who will treat, advise and lavish genuine care on your furry friends treating them as if they were her own. I would recommend her services to anyone and wish her every success with her new venture.
Anita gave us incredible support and strength at such a difficult time.
She showed real compassion and understanding as well as complete professionalism.
Bertie’s last moments were handled with the utmost care and gentleness. Nothing was rushed, and sad as it was, we took great comfort in the that way Anita dealt with Bertie and the whole family, at such an emotional time.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anita to give the greatest of care. Jayne. Stockton Heath
Anita has been a vet and a friend to my pets for 7 years. I think she cried more than me when we had to say goodbye to my last cat. Her professionalism, compassion and commitment are exemplary.
I first met Anita 2 years ago for my best friend Tigger, he was the best Xmas present I’d ever had and I would never think of him ever passing away and I would say he’s Peter Pan and never dying. But the real world came and brought Anita who made it so much less painful, her gentle caring manner is genuine, I’d never heard of the rainbow bridge until Anita educated me.
Tigger was given a gentle, pain-free and peaceful end of life and aftercare by Anita, which I’d never experienced with other vets before.
So when my last remaining cat became an elderly diva I contacted Anita again for Tess to have elderly care medication.
Anita listens, understands and gives you explained options and time a very unique vet indeed which is rare. I’m so glad Tigger was sent to the rainbow bridge by Anita and no one else.
“Anita is an amazing person…she came to see me when I was in a very depressed state when my gorgeous cat Missy first became ill…and left me feeling hopeful something might be done for my best friend.
Even when after many, many months it became inevitable we had reached the end of the road, Anita gave me positivity …and reached out to give me inner peace, in the knowledge that although I had lost her physically, she would always be there with me.
Her advice was peerless …and her deep love of animals is exceptional, making her the first person I would turn to in any medical situation with a beloved cat or dog.
We were blessed to have our Ellie May come to live with us at 11 weeks old, 6 months after myself and my husband moved in with each other.
Ellie was an amazing, strong willed – sometimes too strong willed beautiful white German shepherd. She brought so much joy to everybody who she knew and had the biggest impact on all of us.
Ellie was anxious around people she didn’t know and the thought of taking her to the vet filled us with anxiety. That was until Anita was recommended to us. The first time Anita visited I was anxious, hoping Ellie wouldn’t react, she didn’t!
Anita has the most amazing calming influence on animals… and us adopted parents!
When the time came to say goodbye to our beautiful girl when she was 12 1/2 years old we couldn’t have asked for a nicer way to do it, it was heartbreaking, it still is! But Anita made the situation loving, kind and special for all of us.
We miss Ellie so much but would recommend Anita without doubt, she is truly wonderful, kind and caring right to the end!
Thank you Anita
Our eternal thanks and love Nicki and Paul x
I don’t know what we would have done if Anita hadn’t come to our aid last year. Rebel was so very poorly and our vet had refused to come out to him. I was adamant that I was not forcing him into my car and have his final moments on a vets cold floor. I was distraught -so at 8.00am on the Saturday morning I found Anita’s number on the internet and rang her. Within a few minutes she put me at ease and had arranged to come and see Rebel .
On arriving not only did she keep us calm the way she handled and spoke to Rebel was beautiful – and made me cry again. Her empathy, compassion and professionalism is more than you could ever wish for Wendy Moore , Warrington
When it came to end of life care for our beloved boys Storm and Diesel there was no question in our minds of where to turn, and that was to Anita. Anita had supported our dogs in their younger years when they were not only pets but competed extensively, and we knew then Anita is not only understanding of what your pet needs, but what you as an owner need in terms of support, there is never a greater time you need to have utter confidence in your Vet than at end of life. There were never too many stupid questions regarding the fears and doubts in our minds, but Anita made the end of life journeys for our boys as comfortable and full of love as they had come to expect of us as doting owners. Diesel was taken by painful bone cancer, and his journey was helped by Anita when the pain was too unbearable for him. Storm’s journey was that of an elderly dog whose body was just tired and giving up. Blind, deaf, wobbly and exhausted this was by far the hardest thing we had to deal with but Anita helped us every step of the way, giving us confidence that it was ok to support him in his final months making him comfortable and pain free. With her support Storm passed quietly in his sleep by the fire, Storm was always a very quiet dog and for him to find the confidence to do this was only with the help of Anita. Her encouragement to help us as a family face and deal with such an often unspoken subject in such a beautiful and respectful way will never be forgotten. End of Life care really is something Anita has been blessed with a talent for, her mild manner, and utter respect for your pet and ownership is something that helped us through such difficult times. There would be no other person we would turn to and we cannot recommend her highly enough because of her support we know our boys passed with utter respect and love which is the final gift we could give them before their journeys took them to the bridge.
We are eternally grateful to Anita for her kindness and compassion. Losing Oliver our 21 year old cat was really tough but looking back it was beautiful too. We had time to say our goodbyes and when we were ready, Oliver went to sleep in our arms knowing he was loved. Anita is such a beautiful soul and without her Oliver wouldn’t have had such a long and happy life. Thank you so much.
