Begoade Cattery

Begoade Road, IM4 6AX – 01624 676947

Fantastic Service - will use again. We left our cat with Begoade whilst we went away - we'd never used a cattery before but on the suggestion from the MSPCA we got it touch. From the first call we had a good feeling about Begoade. When we dropped her off we were shown where she'd stay - she had her own pen with lots scratching toys and a soft furnishings, they asked how her mobility was (she has an injury from before we fostered her) and made arrangements to make things easy for her. She needs medicine and regular brushing but this was no problem. They were happy with occasional texts whilst we were away so we got updates when we wanted one. Tonight I went to collect her and she had obviously been treated well, her coat was shiny, she was shouting and vocal (a very good thing) and was happy being handled by the staff. She came home with an extra toy, a blanket she liked and a stash of catnip which she'd shown a liking for (she hadn't previously shown any interest in catnip) Five stars but only as I can't give them six stars !!! Quick update. Caisht has been back a couple of times since and if anything the service from Begoade has got better. We made a mistake on drop off time but it was ok, then on day we were due to pick her up Flybe delayed our flight by four hours but a quick phone call to begoade from the airport and they said we could come and get her. Fantastic fantastic service

Wish we could go in to say bye to the cats ? According to safety measures we are not allowed in ? Dogs next door ? Choose 1 or the other , not great but willing to give it a go just dropped them of hopefully they have a nice time

Milan Veterinary Practice

Somerset Road, Douglas IM2 5AQ, Isle of Man – 01624 674076

Very caring and considerate staff. Couldn't have been more helpful and compassionate after the sudden loss of our beautiful boy Marley last week. A very thoughtful touch sending us a condolence card from all the staff.

I have guinea pigs and the vets here are always great. They listen to whats happening and try everything possible to help my pigs.

Arg Beiyn, Unit 9 Onchan Precinct

Unit 9 Onchan Precinct, Stoney Rd, Onchan IM3 4EA, Isle of Man – 01624 622259

We are new to the vets, but know we have made the right choice. Very friendly and professional felt very much at ease and Charlie the dog enjoyed the experience too! Highly recommend

Arg Beiyn Vets are the best value for money we have found. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The vets really care about our pets and are sensitive to our feelings. The pet plan service they offer is good value. I would highly recommend this practice.

National Sports Centre

56 Groves Rd, Douglas IM2 1RB, Isle of Man – 01624 688588

Visited when on holiday on the Isle of Man and took our 9 month old baby swimming. There is a lovely pool which is slightly warmer than the training pools which our baby enjoyed, and lots for older children to do. Very impressed by the centre itself and looks well maintained with many facilities.

Poor customer services from the old guy in reception who needs training. Not allowed to make your own hot drinks on site, this is camping, useless guy, however rant over, and hats off to the other guys who where very helpful and we would definitely use the site again, great tents, great location, great TT, well done guys :>) loved it

This has got much more humane. The Pet Travel Scheme allows pet animals from certain countries to enter the UK without quarantine, as long as they meet certain conditions. The Scheme also means that people in the UK can, having taken their pets to these countries, bring them back without the need for quarantine
