McGonnell & Gillatt client testimonials

All our vets strive to offer the best service possible - we all love a little appreciation.

We are proud to serve a wide range of equine-owning clients and aim to offer a superb service.

Here is just a sample of satisfied client feedback.

“We have found McGonnell &  Gillatt to be a very professional and caring practice, able to cope with all  situations. Continuity and communications are excellent and all being  equine specialists mean they have a good way of handling horses. They  have very up-to-date equipment for diagnosis on site, making this practice very  cost effective for us. Specialists in breeding, AI & embryo  transfers, pre-purchase vetting, lameness diagnosis & treatment and  emergency care means they cover all our needs.”

Jennie Loriston-Clarke MBE, FBHS  NPS Dip (Catherston Stud, Over Wallop)

"Richard Gillatt  of McGonnell and Gillatt has overseen and undertaken all of Greatwood’s  veterinary work since 2008. Over the years the Practice have helped me with  many and varied problems with the horses we have in our care.

As the leading  racehorse rescue charity, we can be referred welfare cases directly from World  Horse Welfare and RSPCA, and we can always rely on McGonnell and Gillatt to act  promptly and efficiently.  The team of  vets can be relied upon for the best attention and professionalism in sometimes  extremely difficult circumstances.

The nature of  Greatwood’s work means that our horses need particular care and attention to  detail. Many horses have left here for rewarding new careers solely because  long term problems have been ironed out with sometimes revolutionary new  techniques or medication. In addition, the portable diagnostic equipment means  that many conditions can be identified on site, thereby preventing expensive  and unnecessary travelling.

In circumstances  when it is not possible to maintain a horse’s quality of life, the kindness and  sensitivity of Richard and his team, is second to none.

There are other  factors that lead me to highly recommend McGonnell and Gillatt; the advice  always available at the end of the telephone, the efficiency of those who run  the office and the reliability and  promptness of call out.

Last but not  least, Richard and Andrew lead a friendly, professional and efficient  veterinary team".

Here is an  example of just one of the success stories:

Mister Trickster

Rescued late  December 2011 in extremely poor condition (1.5/5). He was suffering with  diarrhoea, a heavy worm burden and malnutrition. Under the careful guidance of  Richard and supportive therapy, his condition has improved and his prognosis is  good.

"What a great team you have now, just had Ellen Harris to see Amber - lovely lady, very thorough and friendly."

Sarah Jane Newton, Shalbourne 

"I would recommend McGonnell and Gillatt Veterinary Practice to anyone ....

They are not only extremely experienced, knowledgeable and caring vets, but they always seem to 'go the extra mile' for the clients and horses they work with. I can not thank them and the wonderful girls that run their office enough - they have been so supportive to both myself and my mare through some very stressful situations."
