Laurence came out to give our new puppy his second lot of injections. It was such a stress-free, positive experience (for both us and our dog) to have such a caring and knowledgeable vet come out to our home. Laurence took the time to carefully discuss all aspects of puppy ownership with us, from diet recommendations to worming plans, and gave Sonny a thorough checkup. We've rebooked for his next injections, and couldn't be happier with the decision to use First Paw Mobile Vet!
Would highly recommend!! Our dog, Pepper, is extremely dog reactive which can make trips to the vet very stressful (for us and for Pepper!) Dr Lawrence was great, the visit was quick and easy, and Pepper was definitely a lot happier and relaxed than if we'd taken her out to the vet. Prices are also very reasonable. Will definitely be using First Paw again
Dr Laurence was gentle with Henny (our 5yo cat) upon assessing him - most especially during his vaccination. Henny was comfortable with him although awkward, he hasn't seen a vet for a few years and is an indoor cat so the First Paw Mobile Vet service is perfect for him. Dr Laurence was open to answering questions and was also across the info I provided about Henny initially. Great experience for us and Henny - will definitely continue with Dr Laurence for our general vet needs 🙂
Dr Lawrence came to euthanise my beautiful 13 yr old boy. It was a peaceful and calm appointment. I didn't feel rushed or uncomfortable and my boy passed peacefuly in my arms. It was also reasonalbly priced compared to other services I looked into.
I can't get my dog anywhere near a vets since he had to stay 3 nights in the animal hospital at 6 months old; he's very nervous. Dr Laurence was gentle and patient and my dog was treated without causing any of us any stress! I highly recommend Dr Laurence
First Paw Mobile Vet was wonderful to deal with from the get-go. My anxious cat Jesse was due for his annual vaccinations and check-up but doesn’t cope going to the vet clinic. Dr Lawrence provided a thorough phone consult before coming in and set the scene for a smooth and trauma-free appointment. He was fantastic with Jesse and provides an invaluable service for sensitive pets – would highly recommend!
Dr. Laurence is a life saver! My cat Ralphie needs to be sedated every time we go to the vet just for a physical, so we decide to use First Paw, and everything went smoothly. Dr. Laurence was able to give Ralphie a physical and shots without struggle at all! He even gave Ralphie a treat at the end to make sure it was a great experience for him! Dr. Laurence made a normally stressful experience for us, stress free.
Laurence is a fantastic vet with a gentle touch. My Leo went through multiple surgeries and vet stays last year and as a result, is terrified of vet visits.Laurence took the time to let Leo check him out and become comfortable with him before he tried to examine him. It made a huge difference to a cat that usually has to be sedated before he can be treated. I’m not sure Leo even noticed the vaccination he was given.Having a vet come to me instead of putting Leo through the stress of a car ride and unfamiliar space made for a very relaxed cat.Laurence was thorough and ask all the right questions so I was as relaxed as the cat knowing he was in good hands.I highly recommend this service and would definitely use it again.
First Paw mobile vet is a game changer! Our cat, Frida refused to go in the box to the vet, she seemed traumatised to get in - very defensive and scratchy. Dr Laurence provided a phone consult before coming in and then came over to give Frida her first check up at home. Dr Laurence provided clear instructions and helpful information to keep Frida healthy. He ensured minimal stress for Frida (and us!) and excellent customer service. Highly recommended!
This is a fantastic service, the vet (Laurence) was great, he was very well organised and thourough. It was a much better experience having him come to us, more relaxed for us and our pets. Laurence is very approachable and knowledable so he will answer any questions and explains everything very well. Prices are very reasonable, so even with the call out fee it was still cheaper than visiting a vet sugery, great value. I have recommended this service to everyone I know and will be a loyal customer myself from now on.
Dr. Laurence is a must for everyone who is having a dog for the first time and even for experienced owners. He is a great professional and he was super careful with our young Cavalier. He patiently gave fundamental instructions regarding health and care of the puppy and he did more than just vaccination but a complete check up. It is also very convenient to have him in our place, no stress with traffic and parking. We are recommending his work for all friends.
Dr Laurence is an absolute professional with my little Hoshi's vaccination, and has been very informative on how I can raise the pup without too much drama. Will continue to have regular visits, especially with the convenience of mobile visits to your home/apartment and/or workplace within reach of the CBD
Our family member Harry the cat needed his vax papers in order to spend 5 nights in his accomodation whilst we went for a short break. I found Laurence online & I booked an appointment for a weeks time.Laurence was on time and from the moment Harry saw him, he relaxed and had his vax, had his teeth checked and was weighed before he know what was going on.Laurence certainly had a way with animals & we would recommend him 100%
My cat isn't the fussiest but I don't drive and he is very heavy to carry, so I opted for a mobile vet. Booking is easy – you can call or book online. The person answering the phone was very friendly and helpful. First Paw was very prompt and very gentle with my cat. The check up, vaccination, and recommendations were handled super efficiently and with care. Aftercare was provided via texted links to PDFs (love this as I am swamped with emails and can't stand loose paper). Very grateful that all pandemic guidelines were followed as I live in a small space, and it made me feel very safe. Thank you, First Paw. I'm recommending this team to all my friends in the inner suburbs 💪🏼🐾
You can see the passion for animals in the eyes of Dr Laurence when he interacts with your pet. He was incredibly easy to talk to and detail oriented to the tee. He even provided a puppy starter guide to help make our lives easier. Definitely give him a buzz if you are looking for a mobile vet!
Excellent service! The vets always take a thorough medical history before the appointment and they are super patient with nervous pets. It's also a mobile service vet which means theres no hassle for travelling in a car with you pet (my cat hates car rides). Would 10/10 recommend.
This is an excellent service. Laurence is a very skilled and professional vet who treated my mum’s beagle. Indie is a very anxious dog and had infected & inflamed eyes. Despite two trips to the vet, they didn’t improve as her anxiety and twitchiness prevented the vet from being able to properly inspect and treat her eyes. This made a home visit by Laurence the perfect solution. After a visit from Laurence and a treatment course, Indie’s eyes were back to normal after only a few days. I couldn’t more highly recommend Laurence and first paw mobile vet to care for your beloved animals. Laurence is so thorough, knowledgeable and attentive to your pet’s needs..
Amazing service and would highly recommend! Laurence was great with my dogs and made them feel super comfortable. He also answered all my questions I had with so much knowledge.Would 100% recommend First Paw mobile vet to anyone.
The mobile vet service with Dr Laurence was very professional, thoughtful and informative and I am very satisfied with the service. He was very gentle with my puppy, and my dog seems very happy too. The communication is also very clear starting from arrival until done. I would recommend him if you guys are looking for a mobile service for your pet 😊
Laurence and his mobile vet service has been a God-send. I have a three year old cat who is very skittish and ran away for five days last time I took him to the vet. Upon arrival, Laurence stayed in his car and called me so we could work out our strategy re Laurence coming into the house and Gavin my cat being in the right spot where he couldn’t hide or cause harm to Laurence or myself. Laurence was so understanding about my stress levels and the stress levels of Gavin and we worked together to make it a successful visit and I was thrilled to have my furry boy vaccinated for another year. He also had a quick look at my puppy dog’s teeth and confirmed its time to have them cleaned. Thank you Laurence, I will be making you a firm part of my furry family. I couldn’t recommend Laurence more highly. Thank you thank you thank you. Virginia, Gavin and Tilly
“We prefer the less intrusive environment”. Says our cats.It is so much less stress having Laurence visit our home and see the cats in their own environment.They think he’s just an odd family friend who takes extra interest in them and their weight and teeth 😹Highly recommend. Experienced, reliable, kind & very in tune to the pets.
Super happy with our first checkup. Dr. Laurence was very responsive and thorough with the exam and made sure all our questions were answered. Appreciate the follow-up a few days later to see how our dog is after our booking. We would definitely go to him for our next check-up and vax.
We called on First Paw to assist us with a health check of our cat amidst the lockdown in Melbourne, when our usual vet had quite a long wait for the next available appointment.Dr Laurence was friendly and professional, arriving on time and ensuring he used Covid Safe protocols during the visit. He was extremely thorough and knowledgeable in obtaining a health history and whilst examining our cat.Our little guy can be quite skittish with strangers in our home, but Dr Laurence was excellent in keeping him calm and reassured throughout the check up.I highly recommend using First Paw for your pets needs, not only for the convenience of being a mobile vet but also for the high quality of care that they provide. I will no doubt be using their services again in the future.Thanks again Dr Laurence and First Paw Mobile Vet!
Dr Laurence was very patient with my anxious cat and was very gentle and patient. Thorough treatment and assessment without the hassle of having to drive to a clinic - perfect for anxious dogs and cats. Highly recommend and we will be using this service in future.
This was my first time meeting Laurence he was great. From the care for the cats to the care of entering into a home during covid, he and the experience was first class! He gave amazing feedback and recommendations for my cats and I’ve now found my full time vet moving forward.
I have to say, I was very impressed with First Paw and more to the point Lawrence. I made the initial appointment and then I couldn't meet that time, but spoke with First Paw to see if I could get Lawrence out to my home and Lawrence called me and we set a time.I am always a little bit apprehensive with taking my two cats to a vet as they get incredibly scared and timid, well Lawrence was absolutely awesome with my two cats, he explained everything very clearly, was fantastic with them, and overall a wonderful experience for all.I would highly recommend Lawrence from First Paw, it takes away the stress of leaving your home with anxious cats!Thanks First Paw, awesome job!
First Paw Mobile Vet is a fantastic service! Dogs are a great judge of character and my dog absolutely loved Laurence. He is super professional and genuinely cares for the animals. The convenience of having the vet come to you where you pet feels safe is amazing and the covid policy he puts in place ensures that everyone feels safe. Will be using this service for all my puppy needs.
We had our first visit from Laurence at First Paw Mobile vet today and it was an absolute game changer! Laurence is so caring and professional and being in the comfort of your own home makes it so much easier on your pets (and you). Prices are very reasonable too. Highly recommend!
First Paw and Dr Laurence have been great! We booked a check up for our cat as he had a sore eye, deciding that the best option was a mobile vet as he is extremely nervous. Laurence was able to calm him down really quickly and was really thorough, juggling tests and equipment whilst keeping the cat calm and still. He gave the eye a good clean and the cat was immediately more happy afterwards, and he also prescribed a course of treatment which has completely cleared the issue up. Laurence has checked in a few times after the appointment to see how our cat is going, and has really shown that he cares and wants him to get better. I would highly recommend First Paw!
Dr Laurence was very professional and you can tell that he really cares for your pet. It was easy to make a booking and the service is very convenient. The initial phone call was super friendly and the consultation was clear and thorough. He also followed up and sent a message a few days later to check up on my pup which was amazing. Overall I definitely recommend First Paw Mobile Vet :)
Dr. Laurence clearly cares for the clients under his care. He is professional with his advice and he follows up to make sure that your pet is doing fine. I'm happy to recommend his services if your pet hates travelling to the vet (like my cat).
First time using a mobile vet and Dr Laurence was wonderful with my anxious dog. He was very patient and gentle with my dog who suffers from anxiety and is fearful of people. He was on time, professional, knowledgable and provided lots of information. Would happily use First Paw services again in future. Highly recommended.
The best vet visit in years! Lawrence was amazing, he was super organised and very caring and thorough with our cat. He was very diligent in his practice and this shows as we had a very happy cat :) looking forward to these yearly visits.
Amazing service by Dr Laurence. This was my first time using a mobile vet for my new puppy and I was extremely happy I did. Laurence was very professional from the initial call before meeting little Millie, right up until the very end. He answered all of our questions and provided us with great advice and tips. I would highly recommend First Paw Mobile Vet as this service is next to none. Once again, thanks Laurence for your amazing service.
Great mobile vet service. Detailed pre visit phone call, courteous and professional. Followed up afterwards with regular text messages. This was my first experience with a mobile vet, and it was amazing. We have a very nervous cat, who hates being in the carrier, even for a 5 minute drive to our regular vet. This was a much better experience for all of us. Our cat was so much more chilled about everything, and as a result, so was I. Will happily use this service again for routine vet visits.
We had an amazing experience with Dr Laurence! Our poor cat was in a bad way with a very swollen face with what appeared to be an infected abscess from an injury caused by a cat or possum. Dr Laurence was very reassuring when he arrived to our home and took it one step at a time to inspect and treat our fur boy! It was so scary seeing our cat so unwell so the last thing I wanted to do was pop him in a cage to take him to the vet - it would have been even more distressing. The professionalism and empathy he showed towards myself and our cat made it clear to me that he is in the right field of work. From injections, to a shaved cheek and small procedure, temperature and weight checks - all was covered in one home visit. I take my hat off to you! Thanks for looking after our Pepi. He has had a complete turnaround. Highly recommended vet service. Put me at ease right away! Thank you x 100
Would highly recommend good Dr Lawrence. He showed lots passion to his work and genuinely seems to care for the animal patients that he treats. Last week he looked after two Newfoundlands with routine injections. He offered lot of his time by giving very helpful advice on taking care of large breed doggos. He seems quite knowledgeable about large breed dogos and offered his valuable time to consult on their dietary requirements, teeth-care and also general health and wellbeing. Also inquired about worming and how I care for the doggos. Did not expect that sort of kindness and it is invaluable advice. Again would highly recommend good Dr Lawrence. If you read this Dr, sir thank you a lot for your assistance and care.
Definitely book Firstpaw again for my puppy. The best VET ever as Dr. Laurence was very helpful, professional and gentle to my baby, Coco was really like him and relaxed as she always wanted to play with Dr Laurence. He also gave us a lot of advices and how to take care of the puppy. Thanks again for giving my puppy the best vaccinal experience.
Cannot recommend more highly. Dr Laurence was amazing. Very comprehensive in his assessment, information and follow up. He was very gentle and my cat was totally relaxed with him. I will definitely use First Paw again in the future.
Very happy with the service from First Paw. Arrived perfectly on time and admit was a first visit did a comprehensive question session getting to know my animals before meeting them. Then on meeting they were very patient and calm allowing my cats to smell and accept them before conducting the assessment and treatment. I will absolutely use First Paw for all possible at home treatment as the stress levels on my cats was so low it was wonderful!
Dr Laurence was incredibly attentive and professional during his visit. Even though the visit was very short (Kitty got overwhelmed..), he gave me a lot of reassurance and advice for me and Kitty which I truly appreciate. I especially think the phone consult/chat prior to the visit was a really professional touch! Thank you so much Dr. Laurence, we hope to see you again in the future once Kitty settles. Sammy ✨
Laurence was great. It took him one visit to correctly diagnose and resolve an issue our regular vet had missed. He took the time to follow up after our appointment to check how the treatment was going, and the mobile aspect of his service is so much more convenient than trying to get to a clinic.
Great experience with our vet, Dr Laurence. Such great value for a vet that comes to you. Booking and communication is very easy and fast. Laurence was extremely professional and had lots of useful information for us. Very thorough examination and our cat loves him! Everything was so quick and easy and we are looking forward to making First Paw our exclusive vet.
Highly recommended! Apqrt from the obvious ease of a vet coming to your home, Laurence is incredibly professional as well. Taking time to establish why id called on the phone first, everything was covered to ensure on arrival, he knew exactly what he was looking for. He put me at ease knowing Archie the Ginger Tom was doing ok. Archie doesnt live being touched so gentle care during vaccination was appreciated. Thanks Laurence, will see you next time!
Lawrence is a wonderful vet. He called me before coming into my home and asked a lot of questions about my cat Jimmi. So he is really thorough, which I really appreciate. Unfortunately Jimmi isn't a fan of strangers or strange people touching her (same 😆)But with some sedation on her second visit, he managed to do a thorough examination and vaccination. And also gave me some great advice on what to look for when finding a vet to do her dental work.Will definitely be using his services for any future issues with Jimmi.
Laurence is knowledgeable, helpful and compassionate. My boy has mobility issues and home visits make it a lot easier on the both of us. Managed to get an appointment quickly after a no show, no call from another vet.
Dr Lawrence was very easy to talk to with clear instructions on what to do for our first home visit 😊 covered most things by ph before entering house to make dealing with the animals much quicker and easier on allI would highly recommend this serviceThankyou Dr Lawrence
Like many people I bought a puppy during COVID. Trying to get to Vets that were Open, and had availability, plus maintaining social distancing was difficult. I stumbled over First Paw while researching my options.Finding a vet that did home visits in a safe and professional manner was awesome!They have been with me through the whole gamut of pet owning, from Vaccinations, through to puppy infections, plus I have an allergy dog. First Paw are very responsive when looking for advice, or what to do in an emergency, and all my puppy needs.
Dr Laurence was great. Punctual, professional and the service provided is something that has been needed for some time. Add well needed a vaccination, not having to wait at the clinic was amazing. Highly recommended.
Our cats Sushi and Miso both hate going to the vet for their annual jabs. And it can be such a traumatising event to even try and put them in their cages each year! I found Laurence online after a bit of googling, and after reading all the positive reviews I thought we should give it a go! And like everyone else in here we had a great experience with him. Booking with him was very smooth, I even had to cancel our first appointment due to covid scare - but he was very helpful and accomodating.On the day of the appointment he rang and found out all about the history of our cats and once he arrived he was very very gentle with our cats - and didn't rush us which often adds stress to the cats and us. The jabs went smoothly, he even managed to cut our girls nails (which normally takes several vet nurses just to hold them down). Very informative all around, friendly and a proffesional service! We will sure to book with him each year goind forward. Many thanks Laurence!
Laurence was on time and very thorough. He was excellent with Tofu during the appointment and I was extremely impressed with the quality of the follow up and support after the initial consultation. Having recently moved to Melbourne it's a relief to have found their new vet on the first try. Thanks again Laurence!!!
My furbaby hates the cat carrier and since I live alone and don’t drive, getting her check up and vaccination done would have been very difficult without the mobile vet! Very friendly and thorough and unlike many vets didn’t treat a cat as less important than other pets. Highly recommend!
What a sensational service! As a first time puppy owner the idea of taking my puppy to the vet just for a puppy check up was daunting. To have the stress of transportation removed and little Baxter seen in his own environment was a relief but Dr Laurence's value is not just limited to convenience. He was very generous in sharing advice and tips for future care, very professional but relaxed and calming at the same time. I will have a local vet but will use First Paw as well. Oh and my puppy liked Dr Laurence so much that he tried to follow him out the gate!
I have a senior cat who stresses terribly whenever we have to travel to see a vet. This was a great alternative for his health check and vaccination. Booking was very easy and Dr Laurence was great with my cat (who is often very cranky with strangers). He offered great health advice and provided some good recommendations for various products. Very reasonably priced and overall the best, least stress free vet visit we have ever had! Will definitely be booking Dr Laurence for the next check up!
Booked online, very easy and accessible to book. My cat, Bella is an adopted cat and is very stressed going to the vet. Dr Laurence took the time to get to know my concerns and explained my cats history. He also followed up and checked how she was going. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great experience using first Paw Mobile Vet. Before entering the premises our Vet took the time to have a pre briefing discussion to discuss concerns and symptoms we had been noticing- our cat had just returned after running away for 7 days. When he came in to do the consultation he was professional and friendly, he took his time to thoroughly complete a health check on our cat and was very knowledgeable in prescribing a course of medication to help with her recovery. In addition to this he also checked in via text in the days following to see how she was doing and if recovery was going a expected. The pricing was fair and the convenience of having someone visit our home rather than putting our pet under stress by travelling into a clinic was worthwhile. Would recommend them!
Dr Laurence was great with all three of our cats whom range from docile to crazy. Really takes the stress out of heading into a vet clinic for both owner and pet! Dr Laurence was thorough and professional and went above and beyond.
Laurence was amazing with my cheeky 15 month old German Shepherd - loved that I could get him seen by a vet in my own home where he is comfortable - booking process and visit was all easy and professional - Would definitely be using Laurence from at First Paw Mobile Vet for all tank future vet needs.
Had great service from Lawrence who was away on leave, but still called me back regarding our new puppys health check enquriy, and whilst he wasnt able to see us at the last minute which was completly reasonable, even took the time to answer questions, give further recommendations to others and also sent a free e book, will defintely keep in mind for our next visit.
Dr Laurence is amazing. His home service is easy to book, reliable, well priced and my frenchies just love him.I started using his service during covid and will continue to in the future as it’s soooo much easier than trying to wrangle two excitable dogs into the car and manage them in a vets surgery. Just the smells of lots of other animals in the vets sends them both into a frenzy and we usually all come home exhausted. With the home service they are calm (well, as much as they can be) and are happy to be examined as they’re in their home environment. It’s just so easy and a service I highly recommend. 😁
Laurence was great! He really advocated for the best care of my cat. He came out on short notice and assisted us with a stressful move, gave excellent advice and was very compassionate with my anxious cat.
The best vet service I have had in more than 15 years of dog owning, in the convenience of my own home. Laurence was knowledgeable, professional and followed up multiple time after the visit to make sure my dog is okay. Highly recommended this service!
Amazing business - my cat was too anxious to be seen at his normal vet so the in home service was the perfect solution. In fact the cat enjoyed it so much he didn’t want the vet to leave! Highly recommend.
What an incredible business. I’m not sure if me or my baby pup were more nervous about the first vaccines but Lawrence made me (and more importantly my pooch) feel completely at ease. An excellent service that perfectly slipped in around my (always too busy) work schedule, Lawrence had my pup vaccinated, checked and ready to go about his day before my first meeting had even started. But most importantly he did it without a single whelp or yelp throughout the entire process. After hearing horror stories about dogs terrified of the vet, there is no one else I would call on for shots or check ups. I have referred all my friends.
Since the first day my old Labrador met Dr Laurence, we realized how excellent professional he is. He took the time to answer all my questions, listened to Koome history and continued a follow-up after the visit.In addition, he is sensitive friendly and nice with pet owners. So, without doubt, when my almost 16-year-old dog needed to say goodbye to us, I called Laurence to accompany Koome to the end of her beautiful life. He and the nurse were very respectful and sensitive at this difficult time. Koome slept peacefully in the best hands.He is really the best vet I met, and I recommend him 100%. Thanks Laurence, I really appreciate your professional, kind and amazing service!
Just had the most amazing experience with Dr Laurence and first paw mobile vet. I am so happy that I stumbled upon the First Paw Mobile Vet service when I was browsing online. I was worried about taking my kitten Zoe to the vet as I am a new cat mommy and she doesn't like public spaces. I live in the city and don't have a car so this was super convenient for me.Dr Laurence is so kind, caring knowledgeable and was so patient throughout and answered all my questions. It's obvious that he loves animals as he showed genuine concern and care about her well-being. Zoe is usually jittery around people but she seemed very relaxed and comfortable around him.Thank you so much for the fantastic service. I highly recommend First Paw Mobile vet service to everyone.
Laurence was great! Punctual and extremely professional, definitely knows all things when it comes to pets! No doubt our puppy cavoodle is in good hands. Love that this service is mobile! Came right to our house and had the vet appointment in the comfort of our own home! Winning!
I am so happy that we found First Paw Mobile Vet.Dr Laurence provided us with a lot of information and patiently answered all of my questions. Dr Laurence is thorough and showed a genuine care and interest in our cat, Sammy's, wellbeing.Sammy warmed to Dr Laurence quickly and the check up was stress free both for Sammy and myself. Thanks so much.
I was so worried about our cat seeing Dr Laurence as he is a real scaredy cat of people he doesn’t know. Dr Laurence was so wonderful with him and our cat wasn’t as scared as I thought he would be, and let him perform an examination - I was so relieved.😃Dr Laurence is so professional, gentle and caring, I would definitely recommend him to care for your pets.The mobile service is so helpful as we live in Melbourne CBD and we don’t have a car.Thank you Dr Lawrence, we really appreciate your kind, friendly service.
Our 19 year old cat got to the end of the line. First Paw came to help end her suffering. The vet and nurse at First Paw were just wonderful and very sensitively and respectfully managed this tricky time for us. They never rushed us through this either. Coming to our home was the best thing that we could have done for the cat as she didn't end in fear at all and just slid away peacefully. I recommend First Paw without hesitation.
Laurence was very prompt, asked all the right questions, and showed great care with my sore, big dog. Having him come over for a front porch consultation was so great not to have to lift the dog in and out of the car to the vet. Very comprehensive. Thanks
First Paws was a fantastic experience! My staffy Marli becomes anxious around other dogs which makes seeing a vet difficult. Laurence was communicative, knowledgeable, and empathetic. He connected with Marli easily. He genuinely listened to our concerns and her history, and made helpful, insightful recommendations in order to benefit her health. Furthermore, he paid attention to her wellbeing -not just her physical health- which is imperative but can be hard to find in a vet. I highly recommend First Paws.
I needed a local vet at short notice and Laurence was able to fit my dog Pip in that day. Laurence was friendly, professional and very reliable. First Paw is a convenient service, and Pip made a speedy recovery thanks to Laurence. Highly recommend. Thank you Laurence!
Laurence was very knowledgeable and compassionate in dealing with my very nervous kitty when she had her check up. The fact that he can come to my home spares us a lot of unnecessary stress. I appreciated the extra follow up - first with some useful aftercare information and then a few days later to see that Meowy was happy and well.I'll be happy to book Laurence for future check ups and would recommend him to anyone who wants to avoid the hassle that comes with getting their reluctant pet to the vet.
Laurence has been wonderful with our animals. He is knowledgeable, offers different care options and obviously has a genuine love of animals.Booking is easy, communication is excellent and follow up is always consistent. Would recommend 100% for anyone looking for a mobile vet. Not having to load everyone into the car is just a bonus!
Laurence was prompt, professional and very careful with my cats – he was sensitive to their needs, acting quickly so they wouldn't get too stressed out. He was informative, gave me good advice and checked up on the animals a few days later, definitely recommend to any pet owner.
Highly recommend Laurence and “first paws”. Laurence was super responsive, I was able to book an appointment for the next day. Laurence provided assessment for my kitty cat and was able to administer and prescribe pain relief all without me having to leave home and trying to get an unhappy cat to the vet. Thanks so much Laurence 🙂
My pup got her 2nd vaccination and a checkup ! Highly recommend !Couldn’t be happier than this :) he was super gentle with my little pup and knowledgeable and professional! Gave me lots of informations Thank you so much Laurence 😊
Being a first time Pet parent, we had a lot of questions for Laurence and Laurence was very patient and answered all our queries. Our 10 weeks old Pup was very calm around Laurence thus making it a very pleasant experience for us.
Laurence is an amazing vet. Our dog, Scruffy, is very nervous around new people. He made him feel relaxed and calm. He also got the medicine that we needed for him fast and called us to schedule the visit as soon as the medicine arrived. He is fast, reliable, and cares a lot about animals. Cannot recommend him enough!
We contacted First Paw Mobile Vet as we couldn't get an appointment at our local vet. Our cat (Tiger) had been involved in a fight and was injured so he needed attention. Dr Laurence was amazing! He arrived on time, was very gentle and attentive to Tiger. Checked him out, treated the injury, gave him the necessary injections and medication and even followed up on Tiger's recovery a few times. Something our local vet had never done. Having Dr Laurence come to the house to treat our cat saved us and Tiger a lot of stress and anxiety by not having to get Tiger in the basket/cage( which is always a challenge) and wait in a waiting room. Highly recommend First Paw Mobile Vet and will definitely use again!
Had my puppy's first consult with Laurence a week or so ago - highly recommend! I was expecting to just get a quick look at her, administer her vaccine and off to the next appointment. Instead he was super proactive about making sure Marceline has been set up properly and very attentively listened to the couple of concerns and questions I had. He made sure to address them very thoroughly and you can tell how much he cares about the well being of your animal companion.
Laurence was wonderful with Max our dog. Everything you want in a vet listened to us was patient with Max who was in pain and followed up just as he said he would. Best recommendation Max thought he was great 😊
The convenience of First Paw is next to none. My 10.5 year old Stanley dog hurt his back and was beside himself with anxiety from the pain. The last thing I wanted to do was put him in the car and take him to the vet, a place that makes him even more anxious! Finding Laurence at First Paw was my greatest discovery ever! Laurence was so calm, gentle and patient with Stanley. He took his time to assess the problem and explained everything we needed to do to achieve recovery. Stanley is back to his normal self and I couldn’t be happier with this service!
My English pointer hates going to the vet and the waiting room really stressed him out. Having a vet come to my home was super handy and my dog got along really well with the friendly and very thorough vet, Dr Laurence Gulifer. Highly recommend.
My little fur baby is not a great car traveler, and with the current COVID climate, our vet's policy is she would have to wait in her carrier in the car at the vet prior to her appointment, so to save her anxiety levels (and mine) I decided to give First Paw a go when she needed a check over recently.I was so impressed with Laurence and his professionalism, caring nature and knowledge. He rang me from the car to get a full history on my kitty, and talked me through his process for when he came inside. I mentioned to him that our last vet told me I had very anxious kitten as she would shake and try to wriggle away from the vet every time we went. But not with Laurence, he came into the home with his friendly nature and my little one went right up to him for a sniff over and rarely left the area he was in the whole time. He gave her his full attention for more than the allotted time, left me a sample that he thought might help, and followed up a few days later to see how she was going.Overall, the whole process was so easy and convenient, I'll definitely be using Laurence & First Paw again and would highly recommend him.
I was very impressed with Laurence. He was very thorough upon arrival and gentle with my highly anxious fur child. He has great knowledge, is very thoughtful and caring, is very personable and provided some good advice. I will definitely be seeking his services in the future.
I'm glad we found First Paw; Dr Laurence was prompt, friendly and professional. He called before the appointment to get some background on our kitten, happily answered all our questions and ended up giving us more than the allotted time which is in no way expected, but showed that he actually cares about the pet he's treating. Will definitely use his service again - living in the city it's really convenient to have a vet visit your home for general check ups.
I can't recommend these guys enough! I didn't know a mobile vet service existed until a friend recommended them and I am totally sold. I have a large anxious rescue dog and going to the vet has always been a pain. Something about the rooms at the vet and all the smells freaks my dog out. The service was punctual, way more thorough than some vets I've been to, friendly, well priced and so convenient. I even got a follow up phone call to see how the prescribed treatment was progressing a few days later. Highly recommend!
My experience matches much of the other comments here. Great service, really convenient and easy to organise. We had a consultation via phone before the health check up which ensured as little stress as possible for my pet. I do not have a car therefore the traveling service was ideal - especially during lockdown. Laurence was able to prescribe a treatment there and then and followed up via text to make sure everything was improving which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this service.
What a great service, especially during lockdown! Before coming in, we had a consultation phone call where Laurence really took the time to answer all of my questions, as I’m a new pet owner. During the appointment, which was a general health checkup for my cat, he was very thorough and explained each step. Highly recommend!
Laurence came at a time of need for I and my puppy. The service was quick, courteous and my puppy was comfortable around the vet. The service is recommended especially when you want an in home care instead of trips to and from the vet.
Vet Laurence was so kind and professional in treating my nervous cat Daisy for a suspect UTI. Really fast turn around as well and was very gentle and caring with Daisy. Such a great service , much less stress for animals. Thanks again Laurence:) Daisy is feeling much better now. Will definitely use first paw again when needed in future
Awesome service provided by veterinarian, Laurence, during the stage 4 COVID-19 lockdown.We started to notice that our border collie was having some issues related to his rear-end and our cat hat been scratching at his face near his ear. We didn't want to deal with the logistics and risk of transporting both pets and also all the additional measures required due to the lockdown at our regular clinic.We setup an online appointment via the website and Laurence arrived right at the scheduled appointment time. We did a 15-minute phone consultation before Laurence entered the property.Laurence was very thorough with the examination and also provided a full general health check on our pets.Very kind and considerate and talked us through all the examinations and provided a lot of background on what was happening, also checking in a few days later.Really lifted the bar beyond what we were used to with our other highly-rated and regarded local clinic, would definitely use the service again without hesitation.
