We have taken many of our pets over the years to Alberts "The vet"
We can only say positive things about the care and service offered by the practice.
Very caring and professional with very reasonable rates charged.
Probably the best veterinary practice we have used
Would strongly recommend

I use The Vet's after moving away from unsatisfactory other local vet and have one regret. I regret that I did not go to Albert The Vet any sooner.
Both vets Albert and Jose are both excellent in many ways.
All the staff are so kind and so caring.
They are always very helpful, knowledgeable and reasonable.
To my great surprise my many cats are much more relaxed when visiting the surgery than at any other vets.
This surgery was recommended to me and I can only recommend it highly.
I doubt that I ever go elsewhere.

I am with Albert the vet for 8 years. They used to be really great. They are still OK. Receptionist polite but I do not find her to be exceptionally nice. Last time I was there the vet charged me 3 times the price of an online prescription. He did not give me any instructions for the duration of the prescription nor a follow up prescription. When I called back the receptionist said I would need to keep my cat on the prescription 'for long time'. I asked for a follow up prescription and was surprised to discover that it costs about 7 pounds. I would think that the fees for a visit and three times the price of the initial medication could cover one follow up prescription. I know that other vets also charge for prescriptions but I used to think that Albert the vet was better than average. I guess I need to search for a better surgery now....

I took my new pup for his jags , first one went well however he had a huge lump and very sore neck! I was also told abt the kennel cough vacc i said i would like him to only have one at a time as hes quite a small pup! The second jag went fine he then said abt drops for bronchitis, i said sure as drops were fine , next thing i know another needle was taken out and another injection for kennel cough, had i have thought abt it i would have said look i explained i didnt want to jags at the one time! However my passiveness turned into 2 jags drops up his nose! I then asked if i could have wormer for my adult dog aswell as my pup! He then proceeded to tell me abt lung worm which i am fully aware of he added 2 wormers and 2 lung worm packs to the appt! On top of that he asked if i had the pup microchipped bear in mind hes just 10 weeks! I then got a bit miffed and said look hes a little pup i dont want to bombard him with all this especially when he had a sore neck last time! The Vet then proceeded to tell me that i had better not loose him because if i loose him whoever gets him well who knows whatll happen to him! My jaw was pretty much on the floor by this point! I stopped him in his tracks and assured him i was a very exp owner that my adult dog was vac inc kennel cough spayed and chipped and i was not adverse to any of it only that i dont think i want to put the pup through any unneccessary pain for the sake of 4 weeks! Dont get me wrong the vet was perfectly pleasant as was the receptionist. I did feel like it was lets get as much money as poss though! The bill was for a 19 pound injection and 10 wormer and 3 for the pup so that would have come to £31 instead i was hit with a £120 bill! I paid for the injections and treatment and left the wormer packs which stumped up to £80 just for worming treatment ! My pup is in a lot of pain we coulnt even pick him up last night without him crying out! Really dissapointed ! Maybe was a one off but bad times for me! :(

I have 2 kittens and take them to this vets because I think that they are very caring and have a very good undertstanding of animals and are able to diagnose the problem quickly.
I live in Edmonton so its a fair way to go but that would always be my first choice and would not hestite to anyone with pets to go there.
It is reasonably priced as well and I find Barbara and Albert to be so caring, kind and senstive- not only to the pets but to the owners too!
I took my baby kitten to be causterated and cried when I had to leave him. Albert gave me a cuddle and reassured me he was in capable hands and he sure was.
I now have a second kitten who I take there too and am very happy with the service this vet provides. I cannot praise them enough. Well Done Barbara and Albert for providing an excellent sevice.

I would highly recommend this to anyone.

we contacted these vets after our previous vets misdiagnosed our dogs illness (leishmaniasis). within one week and a battery of tests Barbara found out what was wrong and dealt with it accordingly. if your animal is ill i would highly reccomend these and i would not go anywhere else. they are reasonably priced and their skills are second to none.

I am one very satisfied customer......i must be as we travel from potters bar just to go there
