From Some Of Our Wonderful Customers And Patients
The Heathfield Vets team as a group of professional and caring Vets and Staff Members is indisputable from our experiences, having had them look after our 3 Springers (and us!) for over 30 years and we really cannot thank them enough, but particularly Philip Snyman.
Our last 15 year old Springer – Daisy – died very recently and has left a massive hole in our life, but the Vet who has enabled us to enjoy and relish 15 years of Daisy giving my wife and I absolute pleasure, enthusiasm, fun, love, laughter, recovery from cruciates and damp dog smells, in such a professional, personal and caring way that made you think that our Daisy was really his dog and the only dog in the world. Thank you so very much Philip.
Our heartfelt thanks also go to Jan who has now retired and Sue on reception. Tony and Sue Slack
Thank you for looking after me. I felt very ill when I first came in, but am now fighting fit and looking forward to the summer football season.
Lots of Love – Bootsy
To Janet, Philip, Ian, Anna and everyone else who has looked after Bootsy so well.
He is now back to his old self, eating well, playing with his toys and enjoying his walks.
Thank you all very much, – Mr and Mrs H
It’s now a week since bringing him home and Drummer is completely back to normal and blissfully unaware of what drama he caused.
Once again you’ve managed to pull him back from the brink of apparent disaster, when he succumbed for the third time to his mystery illness.
Worrying though it is, it’s a great comfort to know he’s in the hands of such dedicated and caring people, who are obviously genuinely “rooting” for him.
My heart felt thanks to you all – Mrs Maureen Smith
To everyone who was involved in looking after Tyson, I would like to say a huge thank you for all the hard work in getting my boy well again, I can’t thank you all enough, it means to much to have my boy home again.
Thank you all so much!!

Dear Mr Killian,
Thank you so much for looking after Betsy before and during her operation to remove a fat lump (which was great news).
Thank you also to all the dedicated staff at the practice.
Yours Sincerely – Mr and Mrs R
A huge thank you from Oliver and Stanley for making us better after we ate far too many pink sweeties!’
Oliver and Stanley came to us in an emergency, after their owner discovered they had stolen a bottle of Ibuprofen tablets, broke it open and had eaten them all…
Luckily they came straight here and after intensive treatment, we’re pleased to say they both fully recovered. Their owner very kindly sent us a lovely photo card and biscuits!
‘To: All the wonderful staff at Heathfield Vets.
Just a little note to say thank you very much!
With heartfelt thanks for the kindness, care and true professional support shown to our beloved ‘Sweep’ and to us….
With fondest regards – Mr and Mrs R
Dear Ian and the Heathfield Vets Team,
Thank you so much for the care you have given Phoebe and Alice, my special girls.
The care you give to small animals is unique to other veterinary surgeries.
Our special thanks goes to you, the hospital nurses and your caring and exceptional reception team.
A very grateful, – Mr and Mrs G
I would just like to thank you all for the kindness you have shown to myself and Mollie through our recent difficult time.
I would like to especially mention Ellie, Anna, Harriet, Donal, Jan, Philip and Ian.
Mollie has made an improvement, not sick during the day yesterday and only a couple of times during the night.
With best wishes – Mollie and Mrs D
To all the team at the Heathfield Vets –
For all your wonderful expertise and kindness always. Boo had a chequered life since he walked through our front door over two years ago – many accidents – but always restored to health once more!
We have been pretty devastated as he was such a great cat and such a part of our life – but this was inevitable and we thank you so much for looking after him so well during this last illness.
I have had 3 cats in this area – Baby, Bambi and BooBoo (and no – the names are not improving) you had them all (but certainly not so often!!) and I wouldn’t have had any other vets look after any of them. Many thanks for everything. – Mr and Mrs W
Dear Philip, Laura, Anna and the rest of the team
Just to say thank you very much for looking after Isaac on Tuesday and allowing me
to be a very “fussy mummy”.
I’m sure, deep down, Isaac appreciates all “Uncle Philip’s” efforts! – Mrs C
Very many thanks for all your care and kindness to my dear Mischief over the past 15 years.
We miss her so much.
Very many thanks – Mrs R

Love – Beatrice and all the family
To dear Ellie, Philip and all the nurses and staff,
Thank you for your kindness and your great care and understanding towards us and our beloved Molly, who will be forever with us, with wonderful memories.
God bless you all – Mr and Mrs M
To To Heathfield Vets Team
Thank you very much for everything you have done for my dog Jess.
You all were brilliant and lovely towards her.
To all the Doctors and staff,
We were so touched by your very kind care and Forget Me Not seeds. Thank you very much indeed for your kindness.
We miss Gizzie dreadfully. She was such a lively and loving little one and played such a huge part in the daily fabric of our lives. She is now at peace and free of pain.
Thank you for all the care you gave her these past 12 years.
With very kind regards – Mr and Mrs T
The one thing that we knew was that
We didn’t want another cat –
At least, not yet. Perhaps one day
A little tabby, or a grey.
But then, a thief came in the night,
Slipped from shadows, stole, took flight.
A cat. As black as midnight skies,
Too scared by far to fraternize.
A cat-deep-browed, and grape green-eyed,
Large, wary, cowed and terrified.
Terrified of dog and man,
Who knows when he first began.
To trust these strangers at whose door
He first stretched out a timid paw,
But, one day, we could touch his fur
Soon after came the first soft purr –
And now, he’s ours, we’re his, we’re three.
Maybe he’s lucky. So are we.
A poem written by Mrs S
From a recently bereaved cat owner who wrote this poem about her:
She was the kitten that nobody wanted
The plainest of plain of her kind
All the prettier siblings were chosen
And she was the one left behind When beguiled by soft fur and sweet faces
The people had all made their choice
Now left alone in the basket
The plain little cat found her voice And she told of her ancient forefathers
Once worshipped and held in esteem
How in Egypt her rank was so mighty
She commanded respect like a queen And she grew more serene and more sphinx-like
And beautiful in her own way
But prepared to exchange with us mortals
Her thoughts and her wisdom each day
Her greeting was loud and insistent
She’d cajole and she’d argue and chide
Her reminders both loud and persistent
And she never strayed far from my sideAnd with everyone else wide awake now
And groggily trying to creep
She’d fly up to the bed just vacated
And curl up and go back to sleep She was not one to suffer fools gladly
And no-one invaded her space
The bravest of brave howling madly
She would stare out a fox face to face
Self effacement was not in her nature
And this did not mellow with age
So whatever event was on offer
She just had to be centre-stage Then one day she said she was weary
In her wisdom she knew it was time
And on the dark day of our parting
Her heart was still braver than mine How empty the house is without her
How I miss the response of her call
What a gap left by one little tabby
The most beautiful cat of them all
