Paul and lorraine are helping a dog belonging to an elderly couple that needs eye drops putting in, without the drops it could have lost it's sight. Thank you both of you.


So nice we are able to help folks, and get them over a difficult time :)


I would highly recommend vet nurse direct! You was brilliant with Jessie and very relaxed. You was so patient and got the job done so quickly and smoothly! Thank you so much. 1st class service.
Ps Jessie loved the treats ��
See you in the future for future services x


"Our cat Oscar is a diabetic who needs twice daily injections. Lorraine and Paul visited him morning and night whilst we took a short break. He could not have been in better hands! They sent us a text each time they visited and posted his photo each day on Facebook! We could not have asked for a more professional service. We shall certainly be using them again, we had no need to worry about him. Lorraine and Paul are highly recommended. A big thank you from us and Oscar of course"


Both very lovely people and very reassuring especially to a beginner puppy owner like myself. Both dogs loved them and was extremely comfortable around them. Very passionate people and will do the most they can to help you and advise you about your little fur friend. Couldnt recommend them anymore. Thankyou both so much xxx


Mine and my mums dog recently had there Pet well being assessments, really professional very thorough offering excellent advice and information I was never aware of. Brilliant products available and instructions on all aspects of the health and well being of our pooches. So patient with the dogs and you could see the passion you have the the job you do. Thank you very much for reassuring me we have to very healthy pooches and I have taken on all your advice. highly recommended and perfect in the comfort of our own home. Lovely to meet you both xXx


These talented people work wonders thank you so much milo was terrified of the vets and today was so mellow chilled and was super calm I will be in touch for my orders thanks again you two xxxx


A great service by a very professional couple. It is obvious that both Paul and Lorraine love animals and love their work. The service they offer is much needed and appreciated.


Very very good and helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Thank you for the help and advise.


Thank you for looking after the dogs whilst we were away last week. It was great peace of mind knowing that they were in safe hands and being well looked after. Great contact when visits had taken place and updates on how they were. Great reliable service. Highly recommended.


Brilliant service from Lorraine yesterday. My daughter's puppy had to be taken to the vets for an operation so he travelled there and back in Lorraine and Pauls vet transport van. Because the van is powered by electric, both journeys were so smooth and this was especially beneficial to our puppy after his surgery. He travelled very well in the crate in the back of the van, although on his first journey, he kept Lorraine amused by his chimp impressions. This service is so exceptional and so beneficial to use. I would highly recommend to anyone that if your pet needs to go to the vets, using this service is ideal. It also helps having Lorraine there as she acts as a calming influence during such a stressful time.


Just recently had a visit to cut my dog and cats nails, very pleased with how they handled them, keeping them calm when my dog especially is very nervous, definitely will be asking them back to redo them when needed.


I would like to thank Lorraine and gentleman(sorry can't remember your name) for coming to look after Balbino's nails. You did a very good job and so so easy to talk to and ask questions of, I couldn't have chosen anyone better to come look after him. Thank you so very much and look forward to seeing you again soon.


"Thank you for chipping our dogs today.
It was lovely meeting you today. Great Friendly service, explained well and very reasonably priced indeed. It was lovely that you took the time to meet us and the dogs outside for a little walk so they could get used to you and then enter the house all together. Thank you and best wishes. I have no doubts that we will use your services again."


Lorraine has been amazing ... From the start to finish ... Most importantly I've come home to a happy cat and thanks so much x


Made an appointment with Lorraine and Paul to get my two dogs micro chipped. After meeting with them they showed just how warming, helpful and caring they are towards us all and my dogs are very nervous meeting new people but showed how professional they were in every aspect. We had a long chat (probably longer than we would have expected, it was like we had known each other for a while, and had a good laugh with a mistake my husband and I had done, still laughing about it now) They we amazing and would 100% use them again in the near future and definitely recommend them. Thank You again to you both . 
Paula and Colin xx

Brilliant service!! Really friendly people who put our dog perfectly at ease, will definitely be using again. Highly recommended!! Thanks so much xx


Excellent service today from Lorraine and Paul, chipping my cat. Would certainly recommend them.

Had the lovely Lorraine Hobday to trim zakks claws yesterday. What a professional lady very calm and zakks didn't object too much!!!
Also flea and tick treatment for the next 4 months. Fantastic service couldn't recommend highly enough. 
Thank you so very much xxxx


We recently had our Alfie dog microchipped and were very pleased with the excellent service, it was a much less stressful experience than taking a nervous dog out to the vets to have it done. Would definitely recommend, thanks again.


Just had my two cats Smudge and Sassy's claws clipped by vet nurse, was such s lovely experience in you own home and saves the trauma of having to put the cats through the journey to a vets. Can't recommend this service enough! Thank you so much.


Can highly recommend. Lorraine came out to my house to give a nail trim to my dog and was very professional and courteous


We could not have chosen a nicer and more caring couple than Paul and Lorraine to look after my daughters puppy. We saw how happy he was to see them both the other day when they made an impromptu visit. I would recommend Paul and Lorraine to anyone looking for someone to care for their pets. Our miniature schnauzer met them both for the first time the other day, he does not take to new people readily but it was amazing to watch how readily he accepted them. They are a special couple who do an amazing job.


Lovely couple, would recommend them to anyone! Currently having puppy visits with my little man and they are very caring and i love the daily updates/photos of what hes been upto. Think they would be ace if they opened up a doggy day care, Buddy loves them!


Lorraine Hobday came to my house to trim my dogs nails and give me 4 month supply of flea and tick treatment ,she was very nice ,I recommend this service as if you have a dog or cat that it's nervous to going to the vets and you just want the basic covering then she's the person to turn to


Awesome people, put our baby at ease. Very friendly and professional. Inga is all happy after having her nails clipped, and was not nervous at all unlike at the vets. Thank you very much Lorraine!


"This is a brilliant service. Today was the first time my cat has had a nail trim. Lorraine and her husband where very friendly and patient with us and our young cat. will definitely be using them again and recommending to family and friends. think this is a fab service and saves the stress of vets as its in the comfort of your own home."


"Lorraine came out to my mums yesterday to chip her dog, made him feel very at ease, a lot less stressful than taking him to the vets, lovely to meet her, will definitely be getting Lorraine to cut our Cleo's nails, n for worming, fleaing etc, all of our 3, thank "


"Very good service from Lorraine Hobday this morning for the doggiewoggs. A very nervous Lilly has now been micro chipped with no fuss whatsoever. Vegas however, was a wriggly worm to have nails clipped but Lol had her under control. So much better having the vet nurse come to your home where they feel safe. Excellent service and highly recommended! Thank you x"


"Trimmed Rosie's nails thanks very much appreciated would recommend"


"Today my Frank and Dave got chipped by the lovely Lorraine and her husband Thankyou so much you have made me and my family feel a lot better as they now have there very own identity Thank you from us all xxx

"I would like to thank Lorraine for...chipping my dog today...really top notch service and was brilliant with her...put Daisy at ease and it was over in an instant. And she did all the paperwork. Thanks so much X"


"Excellent service, very helpful when booking arrived on time as arranged. Very gentle with the dogs, friendly and not rushed. Chipped 3 dogs, two big boxers and went to chip my daughters king charles spaniel too, highly recommended. I looking forward to the next visit."


Anyone who is unsure about using vet nurse direct let me reassure you that when I use them to microchip and have my Shis Tzu nails clipped I could not have been happier with the service they provided they come to your home which puts your pet more at ease would use them again.


Hi all the vet nurse was very nice an helpful ,and visits your home which makes it easier for you and keeps your pet happier, as they can get scared or even become frightens by the thought of going to the vets. It's going to be our first time that I will be using her but so far all I can say is she was very helpful and nice x


I have a really small and a bit snappy as we found out lol , chihuahua , cheapest place for a microchip, really friendly really nice , and creative, put me at ease straight away, very professional , definitely be using again


Thank you Lorraine for clipping our pooches claws today. Very professional service with some additional advice to care for our fur babies. Look forward to seeing you again soon . Would definitely recommend.


Wonderful service -very friendly -treated my dogs gently- i would recommend this service to everyone [ micro chipping ]


Very professional and great service! Microchipped my dog charlie at home.. would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks again **5stars** xx


Just had my pampered pooches nails clipped. Fantastic service and lovely people think my pooch liked them too. Would definitely recommend them to anyone xx


Would highly recommend to anyone lovely couple with a genuine love of animals offering an excellent service


 Just want to say a huge thank you for coming out and microchipping my dog. We love him to bits but he is a handful and is awful around other dogs so being able to have him seen at home is fantastic. Lorraine was very calm around him meaning it was a quick procedure with minimal stress and he was soon back running around the garden having forgotten about the whole thing! I would highly recommend to anybody. Thanks Danielle x


I would just like to thank Lorraine and Paul for looking after my dog whilst I was away for 12 days, I was able to leave jooky at home whilst they come and seen him throughout the day as he doesn't like being away from home, they left a pet log, took pictures sent me texts, I felt so at ease whilst I was away. They played with him, took good care of him, and treated him like the princess he thinks he is !!! I will be asking for their help any time I'm away. Highly recommended to anybody, they also helped at short notice when I had no help one of the days I was away thank you soooo much xx


Lorraine came out to help me and my lab, Ruby, who has recently suffered an FCE and is now paralysed. Lorraine worked with me to make sure I was caring for Ruby correctly and has given me so much reassurance and confidence. She is a caring and professional lady who knows her stuff - it is such a relief to know that help and back up is there if I need it. I definitely recommend Vet Nurse Direct - thanks Lorraine.


I needed a dog walker at short notice so had a look on the internet and selected one that was local (Vet Nurse Direct).

I contacted them on a Sunday morning and they came out to see me and my dog (Milo) that same day. Lorraine and Paul are a lovely couple who genuinely care about Milo. He is smitten with them. I agreed on the spot that they were the dog walkers for me and Milo.

They take Milo out every week day for an hour. They have a key to the house and let themselves in to collect Milo and settle him again before they leave.

Milo thoroughly enjoys his walks and is sometimes still asleep when I get home. Lorraine and Paul bring their own dog out walking with Milo as he loves the company of other dogs and I think he is in love with their dog.

I am also sent photos to my mobile of Milo having a good time whilst he is out on his walks with messages about his adventures.

This is very reassuring to me as our dog is very young. I have complete faith in Lorraine and Paul. I know Milo is well looked after and is in good hands.

I would definitely recommend Vet Nurse Direct to anyone looking for a dog walker.


Simon  & Jan

Just wanted to thank  Vet Nurse Direct  for taking such good care of our piggies whilst we were away. In fact, I don't think they missed as much as we thought they would!!!

The service you provide, from text updates to the daily diary, is absolutely first class & we would not hesitate to use you again or recommend to family & friends.


Mrs T: Wigan Vet to pet appointment for my elderly dog, Paul was very kind and considerate throughout and the service he provided was worth every penny. Will be using Vet Nurse Direct again if my little dog needs transport to the vets


Rebecca Fairclough – 5 star I use Lorraine to look after my 2 kitties whilst away, one of which is a little high maintenance due to her diabetes and other illnesses!! She gives a great service and goes above and beyond to make sure they are safe and happy. It's comforting to know they are in a safe pair of hands whilst we are away ... thanks Lorraine! :)


Cath Dahl – 5 star Lorraine was recommended to me by our vets and from our first consultation I was put right at ease. Our 3 boys have obviously been pampered whilst we have been away. Lorraine sent us daily updates of our cats comings and goings along with photos which was a nice touch. Thank you Lorraine I will recommend you to my friends and family and will definitely be wanting you to look after our boys again that's for sure.


Rosalyn Clark – 5 star  can highly recomend Vet Nurse Direct Pet Sitting services! At very short notice, they were able to look after my cat for 4 days whilst away. Lovely trust worthy people, who reassured me with constant messages and updates as requested! Whilst attending to the everyday needs of my cats routine. Thank you so much, you done a fab job xx

Lorraine came to my rescue when Jaffa was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and I needed to go away to see relatives. Jaffa needed medication administered to his ear twice a day. Jaffa is a gorgeous cat and I love him to bits - but I know he is not the easiest cat for someone else to treat and it seemed too much to ask of friends caring for him when I was away. Lorraine came to see him a few days before I was leaving and was not in the least bit daunted at the thought of the task. She let me know every day when I was away that he was OK and was able to put my mind at rest. Good news at his next test - his thyroid levels are down! He is looking and feeling much better although now on 3 lots of medication. I will have no hesitation in asking Lorraine to come again to see to Jaffa for me whenever I go away, and have recommended the service her and her husband offer to my friends.

"Vet Nurse Direct came to our house today (26th April) to clip Mannies nails. We were very pleased with Lorraine as Mannie was very calm and relaxed throughout. We were happy with the service and would highly recommend Vet Nurse Direct"

Shane, Deb & Mannie (Wigan)


We used Vet Nurse Direct to give us advice on our German Shepherd dog 'Rosie' (20th April)

Lorraine came out to us and discussed our concerns regarding Rosie. We were both very happy with the advice and 

 Guidance given and would trust Lorraine again to assist us with Rosie.  

 Would recommend Vet Nurse Direct as it is a refreshing change to have a veterinary professional to come to the house.

Sue, John & Rosie( Liverpool)


 I always use Vet Nurse Direct for their services and advice and guidance for my dogs, cats and horses. Especially with my horse Garvery Boy (National Dressage Champion 2014) because he needs that little bit extra TLC that I only get from Lorraine's personal one on one care to keep him at the top of his game.

I highly recommend Vet Nurse Direct for their services as you get so much more time with Lorraine and I know she cares about my animals and their welfare as if they were her own.(19th April) (Billinge)

Zoe Ball (National Dressage Champion 2014)  


Loraine came out from vet nurse direct when we were worried about our Labrador diesel. She gave us excellent advice and guidance, and prompted us to seek veterinary attention. Diesel is now feeling better due to having medication from the vet. We would highly recommend vet nurse direct.

My name is Hayley, and this is my fur child Logan…. He’s a mongrel (believed Cairn X Westie).

He was in a really bad way when we got him, the breeder had greatly neglected the pups- he was a rescue. So Logan is quite nervous when it comes to health checks and nail clipping.

Lol has a great way with animals, and although Logan was his “don’t touch my feet” self at first, she persevered and he has been a lot better since.

I would highly recommend the services provided by Vet Nurse Direct to anyone with pets. The fact your animal can be dealt with at home alleviates stress and, in turn, reduces the ”battle” next time certain procedures need to be done. (Bolton 27th May)
