I remember going to him donkeys years ago to have my pets stitches removed . On the floor around the room , were a couple of baskets . One had a cat in lying on its side sporting a neutering scar and looking very sorry for herself. The basket was sticking out in front of the unit he wanted to get the hooked blades from. I was aghast when he very deliberately and callously gave the basket a hard sharp kick to get it out of the way and the poor sick cat had a very nasty unecessary jolt. Never went back again of course . I learned later that it was well known that he never had all the equipment that is usual for an up to date practising vet to have ,he just winged it. He's dead smarmy though and his 'charm' wins over a lot of people.
