Welcome to Rock View Vets

A new approach to veterinary care
Quality care : Fairly priced

 ALL VET CONSULTS £10!

HELLO, I’M FIONA RAWLINGS THE PRACTICE OWNER AT ROCK VIEW VETS

In a changing world where veterinary practices are often owned by large business chains we pride ourselves on being a small, independently owned practice where traditional customer care and dedication to patient well-being are our top priorities. Book an appointment today and come and see for yourself.

In an attempt to bring Veterinary Care to more patients we are changing!

A MESSAGE FROM Fiona Rawlings our Director/Owner

For a while now I have been concerned about the direction the Veterinary profession is heading in.

More and more independent practices are being bought out by big corporate groups who just want to make money.

I fear this means less animals get the treatment they need and deserve because prices are going up and up.

At Rock View vets we understand the problems owners have and want to try and help. We now offer fixed price Veterinary consults for £10.

All Consultations with the Vet are £10!

In 2019 we will be offering Open Surgeries to make it easier for you to bring your pet to the Vets.

Mondays and Fridays will be appointments and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday will be Open Surgeries. In other words you don’t need an appointment you just turn up between the surgery times.

We already  offer fixed prices for routine operations like neutering’s – spaying/castrations – the prices include a buster collar (if necessary) pain relief and antibiotics and post op check-ups with the nurse

We also offer fixed prices for dentals –  to include pain relief and antibiotics.

This should make life easier – you will know how much a procedure will cost ahead of time to allow budgeting.

I am always open to any feedback anyone may have – good or bad! – so feel free to…

Email reception@rockviewvets.com

Telephone 01726 890887  or

Write to me –    Fiona Rawlings  at Rock View Vets, 10 Tremodrett Road, Roche, St. Austell PL26 8JA  with your feedback.

Needless to say – Rock View will continue to offer the Quality Care we are well known for.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy, Healthy Christmas and invite you all to our Mulled Wine evening at the practice on Friday 7th December 6-8PM.

Soft drinks available too!

Miss Bell with her rabbits Angel and Sam and her dog Ruby

“I was previously with another vet and I requested to see a K-laser vet for my dog, Jensen. I was then referred to Rock View and we both love it so decided to stay. With the K-laser I have seen an improvement as Jensen is now bearing more weight on his rear leg where he was having trouble before. Jensen loves going to the practice! All the staff are friendly and I really like the continuity of staff.”

Mrs Rundlewith Jensen the German Pointer

“We love going to Rock View – all the staff know us and our pets.”

“The staff are very caring and can’t do enough for us.”

“We moved to Rock View because our other practice was too big and didn’t seem to care.”

“The staff at Rock View are great! The nurses are lovely and go out of their way to help.”

Fiona is without a doubt the most amazing and caring vet ever - and I especially love and appreciate the care and attention she gives to small animals. She is my Supervet! Her and the amazing, caring team go so far above and beyond to help everyone and their pets in any way they can. You can tell that she really cares about the animals like no other vet that I have ever met. Thank you so much Fiona and everyone at Rock View for every single thing. I can not recommend Fiona enough. So much love and thanks to you all xxxx

I cannot thank Fiona and her wonderful team enough for taking care of my dogs. Especially my 16yr old, who recently had a dental. Since having a tooth removed, Millie is a much happier, less grumpy old lady! We had been to a few vets prior that had not detected any problems with her teeth. Fiona is very thorough with her checks. Thank you Rock View!

Always been great with our dog, nothing is too much trouble and the staff are so lovely. For anyone with a new puppy- highly recommend you attend their puppy parties! We sadly only manage to make 2 but our boy loved it and it's great for socialisation and getting them used to going to the vets early on. Cooper loves going to the vets, just doesn't like going on the table!

After trying a few other vets i wouldnt take my pets anywhere but rockview now. My cat was mis diagnosed twice and had a pointless operation, i then brought him to rockview where his serious condition was diagnosed straight away. They operated and treated him and he was like a new cat. I was most impressed by the personal touch everyone there has from reception,,nurses and the vets ,,they actually care about your pets they arent just a name on a list,,keep up the fantastic work xxx

We visited Rock View last week for a very sad event. Our beloved Border Terrier Matty had become very poorly and it was time to allow him to chase rabbits and squirrels across the rainbow bridge. I was a complete mess, we rescued Matty a couple of weeks, after I lost my mum and also whilst I was combating failing fertility treatment,from an unscrupulous breeder when he was 12 weeks old, by that time he had a brocken tail and was scared of his own shadow. He was our little baby, my reason for getting our of bed in the morning at that time.... so you can get an idea how much part of our family he was. The staff were fantastic, I do not know her name, but I will be indebted to her for the rest of my life. She was professional but caring and kind. She held my hand metaphorically but more importantly her held Mattys paw. She gave me the time I needed, she took a hair memento and event a paw print for me (even trimming between mattys paws first). Then helped me wrap him in his purple fleece blanket. I cannot thank you all enough I am so grateful. Clare Austin xxx

Fiona and all the team are amazing and so friendly, still can't believe Lizzie was running around and back to herself 2 days after breaking her leg and having surgery, the aftercare has been amazing. I would highly recommend the surgery, from being a pup she's has loved it there even with having treatments done! �

I just wanted to thank you for the kindness and compassion you have shown us after we had to have our much-loved cat Alpi put to sleep on Friday. He was a huge part of our lives and you helped us get through a last traumatic time with him. We also thank you for all the care you gave him while he was still with us.

If it wasn't for Fiona and her team I wouldn't have my 3 year old cat Scampy here any longer , I took her in when she was unable to urinate . After an x-ray, blood tests etc nothing was showing as to why she couldn't which left us all stumped for an answer , it was a very serious situation as kidney failure and death usually happens within 24 -48 hours , luckily I noticed and got her in before any damage had occured to her organs and Fiona decided to give her a chance and operate to see if she could find out the reason why. Fiona found her uterus had somehow wrapped itself around her bladder which is very rare and she removed it freeing up her bladder so it could work again. Scampy had to have her bladder emptied a few times by needle extraction before the operation but the staff were brilliant at each visit. Scampy is now back to normal and into everything 🙂 she really is a little scamp and owes her life to all those at Rock View , a big big thank you from me and Scamps <3 xxxx

Wouldn't even give you one star if I could. You knew my cat was sick and on the way to you as you were emailed by the out of hour Vets we'd visited the night before yet you left her to die in a cat carrier (which she hates) full of her vomit in reception for over an hour as you prioritised a dog over her. Not even a nurse came to check on her. I had to deal with her death in front of my 2 young children. You admitted you failed her yet your senior vet Fiona didn't even have the courtesy to contact me. Had a phone call from a senior nurse who just kept telling me she knew how I felt as she had to put her own dog to sleep that day. Hardly empathetic when my beloved pet wasn't prioritised. Every day hurts.

We have just moved 6 rescue dogs from Spain to Cornwall and Rock View vets have been wonderful in helping them to adjust to the huge change, with the treatment they need.
