David and all the staff here are fantastic! I wouldn’t go anywhere else now, the practice has such a lovely feel to it and we are always greeted with a smile! Both David’s have treated my pets and I genuinely believe they care about each and every one of them. They really are there for the love of animals, giving honest advice at all times. Thank you guys! ❤️ Xx

We brought our snake to Stellar Vet for a healthcheck. We were only in town for a day so on a tight schedule, but Dave was still able to give us an appointment. It was a great experience, Dave and his assistent were both very friendly and professional. And also the consult was very affordable in comparrison to large vet clinics!

This place is amazing! I feel reassured that my little cat is in safe and caring hands. The app is amazing and I am kept up to date at every turn if he has to stay in with messages, pictures and videos. Also the fact that you can book appointments for routine treatments online is so helpful. They also have different plans you can sign up to manage and maintain good pet health. I’d highly recommend this forward thinking, innovative and modern practice to anyone who wants a great service at a competitive price.

Visited with my two “elderly ladies” Jess and Willow. Willow is very reactive. David was more than helpful and couldn’t have been kinder. I’m so grateful. Had another visit yesterday. Many thanks for clipping Willows nails - I know she’s a “challenge” and I truly appreciate everything you do for my two elderlies. Thank you.

"Tyson had been a problem for some time. To be honest we, as a family, were getting to the end of our tether. It looked like we would have to give up Tyson . David was very open with us and said that Tyson's journey would be long and would require an immense amount of hard work on our part. He stressed that we had to commit and do all the exercises that he set for us. We really did not want to give up Tyson so we agreed to do what ever it took. Well three months later and yes a lot of hard work, Tyson is a new dog. We are all so happy. Thank you Dr. Dave"

All he wants for Christmas...... Could you transform Herbie's life in 2023? This friendly kitten is only seven-months-old but he's already had a lot of disruption in his young life, changing owners and moving homes. His previous owner loved him but had to re-home him for personal reasons. Understandably, Herbie can be uncertain with new people but he is lively and engaging little cat who would prefer not to be left alone all day. So far, Herbie has never been outdoors but that could change. He'd suit a calm home, possibly with children aged 12 plus, and he'd like to live with another cat but not dogs. For further details - and for those of other cats ready for adoption - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org You can also visit our website at www.worthingcatwelfaretrust.org

Not often we see a true eye emergency. This poor dog’s eye had nearly burst. Hopefully our surgery will save the eye.

Meet Rocky and Bacardi!



Have you got a warm space in your heart for this loveable pair?



Aged just seven-months-old, the siblings are looking for a loving home together, as the only pets.



Rocky is black and white and is a confident kitten, described as very outgoing and loving.



His sister, Bacardi, is pure black and a bit shy, until she gets to know people. Once she’s found her feet, she loves a “fuss”.



The duo came out of a multi-cat household. They should be fine to live with children, aged 12 or above.



For further details - and for those of other cats looking for their forever homes - please contact adoption@worthingcatwelfaretrust.org
