I have been visiting Maple Vets since I was a little girl and first moved to Penketh back in the late 80s. When my beloved border collie Brutus started to deteriorate at the grand old age of 17, Mr Cartwright gave us his personal number to call him. We unfortunately needed it early one Sunday morning. Without hesitation Mr Cartwright met us at the Grappenhall practice and put Brutus to sleep and out of pain. My family then returned with several further pets including my little sister's hamsters, rabbits and our current family dogs Che and Halo!
Little did I know that as I grew up I would be buying a house right opposite the vets in which I now visit with my husband's beloved dog Max. All the staff have always been friendly, professional and kind. The staff genuinely have a love of animals. I couldn't recommend this vets practice any higher.
Deb Bell with Raccoon
Maple/Grappenhall has looked after our dog Arran and now my cat Raccoon for years. They monitor Raccoon each time he comes up from the South, once a month, and have helped save his life a number of times. There is a reason they are his prime vet and the fact I make the effort to travel a 400+ miles each time says it all. You could not get better care anywhere. Also given Rac goes on holiday to Suffolk/Cornwall each year and the vets there know or have known John shows how far his fame has travelled! I am very grateful to all the team as they not only treat the pet, but also the human by default. All the support staff are also amazing. Thank you a million times.
Julie Cunningham with Speedy
Our guinea pig Speedy had an enormous abscess under her chin. John at Maple Vets knew immediately what it was and lanced it. Speedy had antibiotics and a couple of injections to help her recovery and some special food to get her eating again. Speedy is now back to her normal self - eating like mad and playing with her sister guinea pigs and calling to us every night for food when she hears us come home. She runs very fast which is why we called her Speedy! Thank you John and your team for all the care you gave to Speedy. You're brilliant.

We think Maple Vets are fantastic. They have been looking after our pet family for over ten years now and have been just excellent.
We have a dog and cats and they get a free health check each year when they have their vaccinations.
Nobody likes to think of their dear pets as being ill. However, it can happen and it's reassuring when you know they have five star treatment and care if needed. We have had such an occasion when our dear cat Sophie was very ill and required chemotherapy treatment. Although we were devastated we had support from John and all his staff, who are just brilliant - caring and supportive with your pet and also with you.
Everyone at Maple vets gets excellent treatment and I have spoken to many friends and people in the local area who agree. We would like to take this opportunity to thank John and his team for everything they have done for our pet family.
Please be reassured your pets are in the safest of hands with this team.
This is Merlin again. I have just been for my annual check up. My Mum always makes sure that I have the booster because she remembers the 1950s when these injections were not available and Pandy, one of my Corgi predecessors, caught distemper/hard pad. She was very ill and was lucky to survive.
Myfanwy cam with me again. We were both pleased to see Louise. We wagged out tails and made a fuss of her. I had my eyes, ears, teeth and skin examined before she listened to my heart and lungs. I sat very still while she used the stethoscope.
While this was happening Myfanwy explored the surgery. Then Louise gave each of us a biscuit. I am glad that my Mum brings me for my check up because I do not want to be ill. I wish that every dog had a veterinary practice like this and an owner like mine.
