“I can’t thank Colin and his wonderful team enough for making Ruby happy and well again. She is back to her old self which is so lovely to see. Colin was extremely helpful in explaining about the operations and her recovery was amazing. I would really recommend anyone to have this treatment as it’s such a joy to see a happy and pain free dog.
Thank you again and a special thanks From Ruby.”
From Alison and Malcolm
“I have had the pleasure of dealing with Colin as both referring vet and client and can thoroughly recommend Vet CW Surgical Team.
As a vet, it was always reassuring to be able to refer cases knowing they would be dealt with with both professionalism and compassion.
As a client the same criteria applied, no matter what your knowledge, when it is your own pet everything goes out the window! Colin was always generous and non judgemental with his advice and support.
Both Colin and Lizzie are exceptionally talented clinicians and lovely people, your clients and their pets will be in the best of hands.”

At AVS Hayle we met Radley and his owner. She said “I am very happy with the service, and I’m over the moon to have Radley back to his normal self. He is currently poodling around the field, happy and content.”
Kira had bilateral TPLO surgery for partial cruciate tears. Her owner is really pleased with how Kira is doing. She seems more confident as is coming out of herself as she was previously quite a quiet dog.
