I totally love Al and the team. Al was so kind and caring when i had to say goodbye to my old dog. Now with my new puppy he talked me through all my worries and was very reassuring. Thanks for being such an awesome vet !

The Best Vets EVER.

4 years ago
We have been customers of Stabler & Howlett for over 15 years, Late last year our Maltese Shih-tzu "Christie" was attacked by a neighbours known dangerous cattle dog. We rang the Stabler & Howlett Emergency number at 8.30pm on a Sunday Night. and Tish Grant came to our assistance, Tish & Allister operated right through the night on Christie until 4.30am on Monday morning to repair the injuries that She had received and miraculously she survived the ordeal. We cannot speak highly enough of the complete Stabler & Howlett Team on how they worked and cared for Christie 24 hrs a day for the next week and an half until She was out of danger and allowed to come home, even then we were in daily contact with either Tish or Allister about her condition or any concerns that we may have had. The whole team made us feel just like one of their family,even to the stage that after Christie recovered and we took her back for her check up's she would run into the Surgery just like it was home and that She was part of the establishment, which was a 180 degree turn around from her previous behaviour when visiting the Vets Surgery. Thanks again Tish & Allister and the whole team at Stabler & Howlett Vets, They certainly went the "Long Mile" for Christie and Us.

Best Veterinary Clinic ever!

4 years ago
We have been a client at Stabler and Howlett for over 17 years and couldn't be happier, the vets and nurses have always provided high quality care and to be always greeted warming by name from the reception staff is very welcoming. Our fur babies have needed a lot more care as they have entered their senior years and our 17 year old cat Bundy who has renal failure now has monthly home visits, nothing ever seems to be too must trouble. Dr Letitia Grant and her team have made us feel like they love and care about our Fur babies as much as we do. When the sad day came to say good bye to our beautiful dog Zoe, it was done with so much Personal care, compassion, love & Respect, we could not of asked for anything more. We wouldn't trust any other Vet with the care of our fur babies.
