Town Furlong Boarding Cattery

Kingston Rd, Frilford, Abingdon OX13 5NX, UK – 01865 391864

All the staff are very helpful and I know that my cat will be well taken care of when I am away. In the 2 years I have been using the cattery I have never had any problems. For me they are the best and deserve 5 stars

Vets4Pets Abingdon

Pets at Home, Marcham Rd, Drayton, Abingdon OX14 1BY, UK – 01235 462350

A good pet shop with plenty of supplies. The small rodent food is not all suitable for a healthy diet and the wood chippings don't give exact wood contents which can be dangerous for rodents. The employees, while helpful, don't seem entirely knowledgeable but if you know a lot about your pet, there is a large selection of good on offer.

As the veterinary practice that I had used for the past 11 years, were not taking my sick dog seriously. My daughter suggested I take her to Abingdon vets4pets. They took blood test and found her kidney readings were off the chart as well as her pancreas not working. She was hospitalised for 5 days and they managed to pull her through. The veterinary Practitioners, Lucy and Dan where fantastic, and know there 'stuff' as well as taking the time to talk/pet and try and put the dog at ease. The other members of staff were so very friendly and supportive. I was also phoned daily with updates. I certainly wont go back to the previous vet practice even though it bit further to travel now, but at least I know that my dog is in excellent hands. I would highly recommend this practice to all and sundry.

Pets at Home

Clean, tidy shop. Professional and knowledge staff. The lady we spoke to regarding fish products and adding more fish to our tank was so helpful and knew exactly what to say etc to make us choose the right product for us. Helpful but not pushy sales. Well stocked and animals looks cared for.

Staff always are nearby to help. Store is clean and tidy even though some dogs have accidents, the staff always promptly clean up with no smells. Great variety of food with good knowledge and specialist members who've taken courses in nutrition. Fab new Step Up To Naturals range for dogs with dodgy tummies (ours is one of those) with good ingredients, non of this 'meat and animal derivatives' nonsense. Sometimes on BOGOHP. You can actually see pieces of fish, whole peas and chunks of sweet potatoes. Good hypoallergenic ranges which they've tried to put in one place but would be nice for a whole hypoallergenic range that covers food, treats and dental sticks etc to save looking at everything. Very good deals, especially when you join the VIP scheme.
