Re: New vet needed northumberland/tyneside

seconded (or thirded, whatever we're up to!) We've been with Judith for over a year now, and I sorely wish we'd been recommended her sooner, given our previous vet's utter uselessness (I still resent the many visits with a sick rat who they failed to properly diagnose, who died a painful death in ou...
