What our clients think about Delaware Vets…

Wynn visited Delaware Yeovil after eating a tennis ball! She underwent surgery to remove the ball which was wedged in her stomach. We cannot thank the staff enough, reception were most helpful, nurses so caring and Peter went out of his way to ensure Wynn had the best care.

Wynn stayed several nights, the cleanliness of the kennels was a real peace of mind. Their out of hours service is fantastic, prompt and nothing too much trouble including over the weekend and early mornings. Thank you!

Alice Conway
Owner Of Wynn

I have used Delaware’s Equine services for nearly twenty years and I have always found the vets and support staff to treat me and my animals with care, consideration and empathy. I would highly recommend their services to my friends and family. I have used Delaware for general equine procedures -teeth, vaccinations as well as breeding using natural covering and AI. The vets are always on hand to give advice and support any decisions that need to be made.

Any emergency has been dealt with quickly and swiftly even when I have been running around like a mad woman! Delaware have been there for me in good happy times like the birth of my foals as well as the difficult times when I have had to say goodbye to much loved horses and on at least one occasion I was supported by a very tearful vet (the loss of a six month old foal).

The support staff especially Suzanne always deal with me in a cheerful and professional manner and nothing is ever too much trouble. I always feel like a valued customer but also part of the Delaware Family.

Michelle Humphries
Owner Of Shamara Skye

Delaware provide a fast reliable service with an excellent team of large animal vets who all understand their clients businesses.

We have been customers for many years and feel that the practice takes a great interest in helping us to develop the long term health and welfare of our herd.

David Cotton
Bridge Farm

Thanks to Steve and the equine team, Steve is always available and listens to me and my horses! He is calm, kind and considerate to my horses  and takes time to accommodate their little foibles. I have a terminally ill horse and Steve has spent a lot of time working out the best approach to make sure he is pain free. He also retains his sense of humour even when under threat by a pair of snapping castanets.

Steve brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to each visit. He takes time out of his few evenings off to hold equine evenings to help educate his clients. I really appreciate all the hard work Steve has put in to making my horses life as pain free as possible and all the support he has given.

Sue Hughes

I have been an Equine client of Delaware Veterinary Group for the past 18 years. During that time my horses have always had the best care possible by the team.  As an Equine Artificial Breeding Center my stud has been under the care of Steve Wildman. He has been excellent in his attention to detail which has in turn reflected on our success rate of pregnancies. My competition horses are superbly supported by the Equine team and are always there for their care and advice. When Steve is away I always look forward to catching up with Owain Jenkins and Mike Kerby who although large animal vets are brilliant in their Equine care and knowledge.  Many a late night during the stud season we are scanning between 12 and 1am, the vets never mind, they turn up bright eyed and bushy tailed despite the late time.

When taking horses to the practice for care or investigation Suzanne Lawler (Equine Administrator) is always on hand to deal with all paper work details as well as being a dab hand at making excellent tea and coffee. Delaware Vets are a complete package for the Equine owner offering a really friendly team of experts whose main aim is to serve their clients with the best care.
