Dear Christabel,

We want to thank you for your help with Sponge over the last 14+ years.  How did she become that age?  She always seemed so young!

We were proud to be your first spay and from then on, whenever she had problems, from a cut leg through mucky ears to various tumours you were all there ~ vets, nurses and receptionists ~ to make it a positive experience and even fun!  Dear Spongey wagged her tail throughout and we usually came out smiling.  And at the end you were there to share our tears and give her the best send off.

Keep on doing what you do the way you do it because you have it spot on!

Hugs and kisses to you & Kevin & Wendy, Emma, Laura, Claire & Donna plus all other lovely members of staff!

Bless you all


Hi Kevin and Christabel,

On behalf of ARC ( I would like to thank you for hosting the garden party on Saturday. It was an absolutely lovely event with a super atmosphere, and from what Emily has told me it was also a fabulous fundraiser. Please thank all the staff who worked so hard to make the day go well and also your clients who provided cakes, raffle prizes etc and who came and spent their money. However a particular thank you must go to you both for all your hard work hosting the event, cooking the delicious food, running tours of the practice etc. I do hope you were not left with too much clearing up at the end! With very best wishes, Karen — Karen Hide Animal Rescue & Care

Dear Christabel, Emily, Loren and other friends at Twickenham Vets,

This is just a note to thank you for inviting us to be a part of yesterday’s garden party. There was a lovely atmosphere and so nice for once to be at an event where lots of animals came along too. You did a brilliant job organising it all and we would love to hear your tips on arranging for the weather to be lovely too! Many many thanks from all of us at Hounslow Animal Welfare (

Best wishes Heather, Chair of Trustees

I would like to thank you for all the care you gave to Ollie at the end. Sadly he could not fight the disease but you were with us at the end and made it so peaceful. This is the best vets I have used


Thank you so much for all your attention, time, help and support I received… Special thanks Christabel and Lauren for everything…in Benji’s memory… God bless you girls…

Lorena Rodriguez

We moved vets after so many recommendations and it’s obvious why. For everyone here, caring for animals is a true vocation. Genuine love, care and concern combined with expertise not only putting our four cats and retriever at ease but also the human element! It’s the only veterinary practice Frodo doesn’t have to be dragged into. Thank you all so much. You’re the best.

Sarah & TimTwickenham

Thank you to all at Twickenham Vets – you provide the most outstanding, friendly, yet professional service to both pets and owners. Can’t praise you enough!

Sue McKeon and Graham WalpoleTwickenham

We feel incredibly fortunate to have stumbled upon Twickenham Veterinary Surgery (they came highly recommended via the river walking fraternity). Our crew 4 dogs and our dear old cat Ragz have been given the most wonderful care. Christabel & Wendy are so dedicated and work with a great team. Such a tenderness, vocation and a kind of magic lives at this surgery. We have laughed, we have cried, we have kept the faith. THANK YOU. ALL OF YOU. Julie & Martin Seager.

Julie SeagerTeddington

Thank you Christabel. You went above and beyond expectation when we had problems last weekend with Ollie. Your phonecalls to us, Jaya and Medivet to ensure Ollie was getting the best possible care means to very much to us. He is very much on the mend now (swiped 8 eggs off the side yesterday!) We’re so glad that we found you and so very happy with the love and support you give our fur-baby! THANK YOU x

Emily McMahon & Sally KingTwickenham

Thank you so much Laura and Christabel (not forgetting Wendy and all supporting staff) for the kindness shown to us with our beautiful boy Bruno who we sadly lost on the 11th September 2012 after much illness (diabetic, thyroid and then cancer) so much was done but in the end all in vain. We cannot thank you all enough

Barry & Nina FullartonFeltham

I would like to thank all at Twickenham Vets, especially to Wendy and Christabel for looking after Nimrod. Your love, care and dedication towards him are unparalleled. You did everything possible to make him comfortable till the end of his life. Your gentle yet firm guidance helped me to have made the right decision for him, without your kind support I could not have gone through the difficult time. Thanks again, you are the best Vets I have ever known. Emi, Twickenham

Emiko SakoTwickenham

I cannot praise the surgery highly enough with regards to their service and the amazing advice they give me time and time again. I have had recurring problems with my cat Maxxie’s health and they never fail to provide appointments and advice when I need it. I would not hesitate in recommending them!

Hannah CollinsTwickenham

We’ve only recently started bringing our lab Ollie to the surgery but on the few visits we’ve had, myself and my partner have felt welcomed and at ease. All our questions are answered simply and Ollie is treated like he’s a superstar – which makes us love the staff even more. Thank you

Emily McMahonTwickenham

I got to know everyone well when my cat got older, went deaf, and developed gastro-enteritis. Christabel and Wendy looked after both of us with such care and attention – we could not have been in better hands. This is the best place to care for your furry family!

Maggie WalshTwickenham

I want to thank all at Twickenham Vets for looking after my cat so well, throughout her illness, and for helping her (and me!) so sensitively at the end. I appreciate the relaxed atmosphere at the surgery where I never felt rushed in appointments; I like the gentle way they treat their patients, and the fact that they effortlessly remember all about them from one visit to another. The charges are reasonable too, so that even though we had to visit often, I felt as much cared for as she was. xx


Christabel is wonderful. She and her staff work tirelessly with Bruno (he is diabetic) and a bit of a mystery at times with his levels – thanks so much for your patience and kindness

Pat Bushnell and Ray BrowneHampton

I have been taking my dogs to quite a few vets over the years and Christabel is one of the few very good vets I have found that I could count on one hand with four fingers missing. It makes moving very difficult as finding someone else like Christabel I would say would be verging on the impossible!

Barry ReedHounslow

Over the years Christabel (and all her team) have become very good friends. They are so genuine in the care that they give and the compassion that they feel for both pet and owner. I would never go anywhere else.

Sandie HollowayHayes

Christabel is not only an outstanding Vet but she is also a genuinely caring and compassionate person. It goes without saying that every single member of her team are equally dedicated to the care of all their clients; those with 4 feet as well as those with just two!! I highly recommend Twickenham Veterinary Surgery, in my opinion they are the best.

Jane O’CallaghanHampton

There are not enough words of gratitude that I can convey to this wonderful practice, they truly love animals and humans. I lost my dog after 13 years and they were thoughtful, kind and caring. I still have an elderly dog and a puppy now too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Mandy Scott-JohnsonTeddington

We travel away from our local area to bring our ferrets to you. They are our babies and we trust they are safe when in your hands. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, it’s like seeing old friends each time you visit! Many Thanks from Frodo, Fizz & Dave!

Laura Cody & Jason RoffEgham

A wonderful practice with caring staff, recommended.

Sue and DavidRichmond

We will always remember your kindness and value your wonderful service to our pets.

Stephen and SarahTwickenham

We are so impressed with your care and service. Thank You
