These are a small selection of authentic, handwritten testimonials which we have received from our customers throughout our 6 years in business (originals can be seen on initial consultation visit) . A big thank you to our customers for giving us their permission to share their experiences with other prospective customers.

Mrs S, Aspull Aug 2006
'I am absolutely thrilled with the service i received. Very professional. My cat was in excellent condition and didnt seem to have missed me due to Rebecca's loving care. Rebecca spent up to 45 mins on the visit and spent a lot of time playing with my cat as well as feeding and giving him his medication. Rebecca contacted me via text whilst i was on holiday, I thought this was a nice touch. I will be most certainly using them again and i would recommend them 100% to anyone needing pet care.

'Miss G, Standish L G Feb 2011
'As first time dog owners we were unsure as to the best option for Alfie whilst at work. After reviewing many options we looked at A1 Animal Care, who as a company immediately proved to be professional, efficient and flexible. It was a pleasure to meet Rebecca who is clearly passionate about what she does and gave us a great deal of support and advice (and still does!) We would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca and really don't know what we, or Alfie, would do without her'

Mr D, Pemberton Jun 2007
