Vetlife also owns the Centre for Dairy Excellence, a dairy consultancy specialising in data analysis, livestock intelligence, farm systems and nutrition.
“I have been going to Vetlife for the last 4 years with my cats. The level of knowledge and consistency of care that I have had across all 4 cats over the years has been amazing. The vet nurse staff take time to get to know you and are genuine and Laura our vet is just as genuine and she is always happy to answer all my questions. When we had to say goodbye to 2 of our elderly cats they were the biggest comfort and handled the emotionally wrecked me well. They were enthusiastic and excited for me when we finally got our new kitten and have been with us every step of the way. I honestly cannot praise you guys enough. Thank you. ”
