Client – Peninsula

After my rat developed an abscess, I took her there. They are caring and amazing people! They took the time to explain everything they were going to do and the poor nurse who had to answer all of my questions after she'd given me after care instructions was patient and kind to me no question was too hard, and she made it clear there were no stupid questions. Even the way they interact with each other, you can tell they truly care. My only very minor gripe is the long drive time to their office. If you could open an office in the northern suburbs that would be amazing!! We need some high-quality rat vets up here!T

Emma Louisse Allen

Client – Peninsula

I have only just started taking my budgie and cockatiel to UPV Frankston and I honestly can only give positive feedback. The staff are lovely, approachable and know their stuff. To have a vet compliment me on how well cared for my budgie is was very much appreciated.
