Veterinary Activities in Bournemouth
4 Knyveton Road
Well by the very few negative reviews from Gilbert Revenge, BR, DN, Ray and H Tucker concerning Tom the proprietor of Spring corner is totally unfounded. GR, BR DN Ray And HT must have come from one of Hitlers breeding programmes. Not fit to be human. Lack intelligence to be an animal, so the only species where they fit the category is parasites. You are rude to a very nice gentleman, so he doesn’t speak to you politely.???The truth is, he’s only throwing back the crap that you threw at him.

The owner of this practice Mr Spencer is incredibly rude, as others have said talks over you and dismissive, grumpy and throughly unpleasant individual. He missed a lot during exam that his other staff picked up on thank fully. The place would be much better without him as I over heard his staff mentioning whilst I was waiting.

I have been using this vets for 10 years, since I moved to the area. I was recommended by a friend and was so pleased . My little yorkie broke his leg 8 years ago and Tom did a wonderful job with him.I now have a problem with the same dog having a collapsed trachea and again Tom is doing everything he can to help this situation. The staff are all very caring, especially Barbara who goes beyond the call of duty. I have recommended Tom to many people and one of my friends comes all the way from Oxford to consult him, I think that says a lot.This vets is not a rip off vets it charges fair prices for treatment. Once again thank you to all the staff at Spring Corner for their care. Judith Britnell 02/08/2012

I started using Spring Corner recently after a friend recommended them. My cat is on pills for her thyroid and her heart and my vets were charging me about £50 a month. At Spring Corner the same pills were £25 a month. The vet there was lovely and i will certainly be using them again in future.

Al the staff at Spring Corner are lovely except for the owner, Tom Spencer. He is brash, rude, abrupt, arrogant, will not let you finish your sentences even when he has just asked you a question, and mostly condescending. All that seems to matter to him now is his yacht, his flash car, and the new extension to the surgery. You almost feel he thinks he is doing you a favour by seeing you., which I will try and avoid in future, a thoroughly unpleasant man who taints the efforts of all his staff.

I used this guy a few times when he was at Sring Road, and service was not to bad, since he moved premises the only care is "the money" not the pet, rough with the animals and for sure a lot more tests than needed and still get it wrong. If you love your pet avoid this guy

Tom isn't everyones cup of tea,but as a vet there are few to top him.I think he deals with men better than women we are far to emotional for him and he is harsher now than he was 20years ago.Having said that if my animal was ill he is the one I want dealing with it .He and his troupe are fantastic .We have had to say goodbye to 4 dogs in the last 15years and each time he was great .One in particular was a difficult mastiff that had been very badly treated before we had him .Tom looked after him personally .As Dollar trusted no one outside of the family this was a brave task.One I will be forever grateful for.Others would have said put the dog down, but Tom dealt with it .So how anyone can say they won't deal with difficult cases is beyond me.Im straddled between Bournemouth and London now and will still use Springcorner as long as my dogs need them.I don't think you can find better!

I've used Spring Corner for many years and have always found everyone there very caring and professional. I must admit I've always found Tom Spencer the owner very (rightly) proud of his surgery. His prices are so competitive and is very up to date. I've always found him to be very friendly and he's been a really good vet to us. All his staff: Receptionists, nurses and other vets have been brilliant and I'm just glad they're in Bournemouth! Very well done Spring Corner. May it long continue. Thanks Tom for providing such a great vet surgery! I can't speak highly enough.

I have found that you will always be seen quickly and that they will make every effort to find a time to suit. I find the girls at reception and nurses sweet and helpful. The owner, however, is unfriendly, to the point of rudeness on some occasions, and has no patience with difficult animals or customers whom he, possibly, finds irritating. I have no doubt that he is a good vet, but needs to be kinder and more patient to the pet he is seeing, as well as a lot more friendly to its owner.Having spoken to others who use this surgery, I find they feel the same way as I do about the owner. It costs nothing to smile and be friendly and pleasant. I have yet to see him smile!! Some of the other vets I've seen there are friendly and kind, though. The surgery is up to date, with modern equipment and is kept clean. Their prices are excellent. My pet hates going there!

We have been using Spring Corner for years. They are very professional, up-to-date and always do the best for the animal. Very reasonable rates too - bonus!

I first went to Spring Corner in 1994 when looking for somewhere to have my cats neutered. Having rang round vets in the area,Spring corner were the cheapest. One group in the area quoted different prices depending which practise you wanted to go to ie. Bournemouth was more expensive than Swanage!! I was pleased with the care and attention they gave and have been going there ever since with a variety of pets! The vets and nurses are friendly yet professional, always putting the animals welfare first. They continue to give good value for money- check out their price's against others.

Our first visit today but I went for a guided tour last week. I was very impressed with the up to date equipment especially the digital xray. The place was clean and you could tell they had just finished a busy surgery. I actually observed two staff, who were unaware I was there, dealing with a dog. They were being so gentle and kind giving plenty of positive care. Their funds seem to be spent on the latest technology instead of swanky decor. Good for them, shows where their prioities are. The staff were friendly and helpful. One of our cats was quite calm about her visit there but the other was not. The vet dealt with her firmly so both escaped the visit unscathed. I do mean firmly not roughly. The cost was below what I have paid at other surgerys who cannot boast the same level of equipment. My only negative comment would be that they should do something to stop the front door banging. Hopefully our cats will stay fit and healthy but I will know they will get the best of treatment when we have to go again. Well done Spring Corner. CN and LS

Moved to the area and thought it looked nice. When i went the vet was rude and talked over anything i had to say. Told me all the other vets i'd been to were wrong and had given my cats things by lying to me! Basically bully boy tactics. What swung it for me was my cat's reaction - i've never seen her so nervous before in a vets!!!! Normally she's very friendly and curious but she just sat down looking at me mewling. I will not be going back!!!!!!!
