Grooming Room

My name is Lesley, I first started dog grooming 5 years ago after I became dissatisfied with how my Rottweiler Alfie was groomed. He would come back from the groomers still damp and smelling of wet dog, so I decided I would learn how to do it myself.
I went to college and gained my qualifications, Levels 2 and 3 in dog grooming and proceeded to work from my home. Almost immediately I was offered a job as manager of a grooming parlour, but yet again I became unhappy at how the establishment was run. I decided to begin my own groomers, leading me to open Scruffs to Crufts @ The Grooming Room.

So now I get to offer dogs and owners the experience and groom they both deserve, working on a one to one basis to ensure that your dog receives the best possible experience from start to finish. I can offer flexible opening hours with weekends and late night appointments available on request.

I feel I must write a review to show how grateful we are to Karl and the whole team at St Leonard vet centre. We rang for advise when our 5 year old standard poodle Shula started bleeding out of season. We were asked to bring her in immediately as they suspected pyometra which is fatal. Karl explained that it was an infection of the uterus and she needed to be spayed quickly. We had never got round to having her spayed, and feel terrible that we risked this on her. She recovered quickly after the operation and was soon back to herself again. Thanks to Karl and the team. More recently we left our cat Tinks at the meow hotel catery. It is so nice, she purred her way round and looked quite happy as we left her. It was very reassuring that she was safe and well looked after. Thank you

Having our dogs under the care of Saint Leonards for the last 7 years, we have always found their care of our dogs and us as anxious 'parents' second to none for the usual annual boosters and general check ups. Recently when our 5yr old Great Dane Sachait, fell gravely ill with the life threatening condition gastric torsion Karl and all the nursing staff surpassed all our expectations in care, commitment and compassion. The skill that was shown during her major surgery was exemplary. Sadly when the condition returned 4 months later it was too much for her but again their compassion, sensitivity and support showed they genuinely cared and shared our loss and it is very comforting to see Sachait on Karls business cards. We wouldnt trust the care of our other Great Dane Bram and Irish Wolfhound Harker to anybody else and it is nice to have this opportunity to say how much we appreciate all that they have done for us. Thank you!

Life Changing Surgery

Hi everyone I'm Kaspar, an eight year old British Blue cat. In August Karl operated on me because I had a blocked Mega-colon. I was in so much pain, I thought I was going to die. Mum was very worried about me but she was kept informed of my progress during the day. Karl did a great job, and me, well Ive had a whole new lease of life!! Things couldnt have been better until 5 weeks later I got an infection in my paw. It was so bad I had to have a toe amputated. I had to come back 3 times a week to have the dressing changed. Everyone was so good to me during that time and on one occasion I was even picked up from my house because my mum couldnt arrange transport. Once again I am now fine thanks to Karl and the team. As nice as they are though, I hope I dont see them again for a while! Thanks again guys. Kaspar (and mum)

Testimonials

Myself and my parents sadly had to recently say goodbye to our old cat Toby, the service and care we received from James was absolutely brilliant. He made us feel at ease and took good care of our old boy in his last moments. Massive thank you to James and the whole team for always providing excellent care for our pets.

We can only echo all the positive comments already posted. We recently had to have our elderly border collie, Jodie, put to sleep and Karl and Maraide were v compassionate to us in our distress whilst giving us confidence that we were doing the right thing. Our other dog, Cassie, gets v nervous when in the surgery and tries to bite all the vets! However, they are all v patient and understanding and handle her brilliantly. Our dogs have had excellent treatment over the years with thorough after care and even phone calls home to check on their progress. All the team are friendly and v caring. Our new puppy is now registered here - we wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

I have 8 rats and this place is just amazing. From sorting out their upper respiratory infections to castrating my two boys I couldn’t be happier. They certainly know what they are doing with small furries and have got a repeat customer here. The prices are very reasonable and I will recommend them any day. Staff make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door, enquiries are answered relatively quickly and knowledgable staff. Thankyou so much.

After many years and many Vets, St Leonards are by far the best. The Vets are all excellent, as are their staff members. They put your animal before profit (unlike some larger practices that we have tried) and are caring and kind. We can't recommend them enough.

Margaret Bulloch


We have been taking our fur kids to this practice for over 30 years but in the last 3 years I have seen a marked improvement in the treatment and care they have received. There is a warm, friendly atmosphere which begins at the Reception Area and continues in the Examination Rooms - we wouldn’t take our dogs and cats anywhere else. Thank you, Karl and the team.

Hello, my name is Sweep and I am a very shy 14 yr old tomcat. I am currently fit and well so only visit Saint Leonard Vets for my routine boosters and health checks. I wanted to talk about my late brother Sooty, a lovely black tomcat who was treated at Saint Leonard Veterinary Centre throughout his troubled life. He commenced with urinary tract problems at the age of 2 and spent many periods as an inpatient at the veterinary centre. The care he received from the vets and nurses was excellent, I used to think he had been on holiday he always looked so good on his return.In June 2009 he was successfully nursed through major abdominal surgery and then went on to develop Diabetes in 2010. It was later that year, after a referral to Cambridge University hospital and several surgeries later that he eventually passed away. The vets and nurses were so caring and professional. They allowed him to live through all of his '9 lives' and gave us so much extra time with him that we just would not have had without them. Sooty is still dearly missed by us all but we are so grateful to all of the team at Saint Leonard. Thank you everyone, you are the best. Love Sweep and the late Sooty.

Having been with this practice a number of years we have no qualms in recommending SLVC. The staff have always been caring but in the last few years since SLVC became independent it has undergone modernisation both of the actual facilities and the service provided including: •Permanent Veterinary Surgeons •Improved opening hours •Introduction of Membership Schemes •Improved facilities Due to the ailments our pets have, we are regular 'visitors' and each time we attend whether it's for their vaccinations, consultation or our pets needing surgery we always feel that our pets get the very care and attention. Staff always take time to explain what's happening and keep you updated regularly while your pets are with them. If you call with a problem/query, staff listen and advise and you are never made to feel like its any trouble or you are just fussing - staff understand the owners concerns and needs also. In our opinion as a pet owner for many years the full package you get at SLVC is second to none and long may it continue.
